I had a lot of complaints with millennials, only to realize – I am one of them. So before I further backstab my generation, I tried to understand what’s really going on in their minds.
What are their struggles?
Are they really up to no good?
Or are they just misunderstood?
Real Problems a Millennial Encounters
Challenges with Other Generations:
Here are some sentiments we feel against other generations.
Nobody Takes Us Seriously
Some millennials feel that people do not take them seriously. It’s as if we don’t have valid points when it comes to business and other #adult stuff. At times, you have to prove them wrong and they took it as being stubborn.
They Call Us Lazy
Even if you work 2 jobs and study while you are at it, they still think you are lazy simply because you do all your work online.
Everyone is a Social Media Manager
Just because we are good with social media doesn’t mean it is the ONLY job we can do. We can still be professionals in different fields.
Pressured to be Successful in Their 20s
Times have changed, same as with the economy. We are the largest part of the population and you can just imagine the competition we have to go through. Perhaps, a little consideration and support wouldn’t hurt.
Challenges with Own Generation:
And of course, I am not biased. There are some things that our generation should improve. Below are some of those.
Not Talking to Your Friends in Real Life
I was born in the late 80s and I was able to enjoy real talk with friends. If we want to meet up, we will schedule a day and host a house party. But now, everything can be done virtually. It is, of course, efficient. But where’s the fun in that, right?
Abusing Freedom of Speech
Yes, we have that ‘freedom of speech’, but that doesn’t mean we have the right to hurt other people through our words. There is no such thing as absolute freedom. Remember that.
Being Defensive Over Little Things
We don’t have to prove ourselves all the time. Like other generations, the ones before them would always have something to say. And most of the time, it isn’t good. It’s probably a generation gap thing. Just do what you think is best, and make sure you don’t hurt other people, millennial or not.
