Millennials are generally considered people who are born roughly between 1981-1996, give or take a few years. And for years, all you hear about is how these folks are like the losers of the universe, dumb, entitled babies and the like. They get trashed on by everyone, typically older folks are the ones doing it obviously. But when I see this, I have got to laugh, for it makes no sense at all.
Cuz here’s the thing, older gens that make fun of them. Millennials are products of YOU raising them in a world YOU created. Seriously. This is why it is so stupid for older gens to make fun of younger ones.
Not to mention, each generation grows up in a completely different world. Think of how your grandparents, parents and yourself grew up. They are 100% different. If you are in your 20’s or older even, your world today is substantially different from when you were a little kid.
And life doesn’t get much easier, in a ever more crowded and complicated world, I feel very bad for kids being born today, for in 20 years, I don’t want to imagine how crappy everything will be. Especially when the supposed millenials take over running the world.
There is a humorous article that tells 50 of the things millennials are made fun. Some of them just make no sense, most of them are really just what happens with the current technology and what not. The world is changing with each generation, especially due to the crazy tech uprising, and I can just conclude that the older people don’t like all the changes so blame it on them young whippersnappers.
The one I hear about most is the participation awards. Everyone deserves an award for everything. I don’t recall any millennial ever begging for a trophy or some kind of reward for just showing up. This had to been an idea that the parents made up. Sure some kids might have been sad that their team didn’t win and they wished they got a trophy, which may have started the idea, but still, it’s not like a bunch of 6 year olds banded together and protested that everyone should get something.
Trends, styles, fads…etc. These have changed yearly, so why is it that it is so surprising and offensive that millennials have them as well? There is always going to be new things people get interested and then drop. All about change…again. People hate differences. It’s literally generational racism.
The point I’m trying to get across is, as people grow up, they create new things, which eventually derail life styles between each generation, and then the older people get ticked for them not going through life exactly as they had. This has been going on forever, and will continue to do so. So the only thing to do is just let it happen, for change is inevitable, so why cause rifts and problems. Because guess what? The generation above you hates your ass too.
Why can’t we all just get along?
