We've all seen the headlines, millennials are ruining, uh, everything. Millennials are self-entitled, lazy brats. Millennials are bad.
Well, Millennials are sick of it. Those who came into adulthood in the early 21st century, also known as millennials, have emerged as adults in a new world. A world unlike the last 70 years or so and they've taken some huge hits and accusations for it. But when the older crowd who is busy poo-pooing the young adults and middle-aged adults of today, those very same millennials are barking back with resounding intelligence, fully aware of what hand they were given in life and how they've had to adapt to survive. Have a look for yourself...
Living costs what?!
Other cultures do NOT concur.
Several other cultures, actually.
It's time for a history lesson.
Have a seat, pop a squat, rest your legs.
Nope, there's more. A LOT more.
Some more dollops of history for ya!
History feels good, so good.
And then... a little bit of a debate raged on.
Some people agreed and added things, like "living with your parents isn't bad, but..."
It's not always what you think.
"I'm alive, why is that good enough?"
It's a garbage idea.
A little more learning for you.
Struggling is not a badge of honor, but stability is.
Just because something works for one, definitely does not mean it works for all.
And then there were the naysayers.
With their loud opinions.
The spooky 20 somethings still building a strong foundation...
Who the heck even LIKES living with their family?
And while some other countries embrace living with family well into adulthood, other countries disapprove significantly. Of course, Nordic economies are some of the strongest in the world. It's difficult to compare their ways of life to American.
Either way, living alone is practically impossible for the young adults of this modern era.
But you know what? For all the negatives placed on the shoulders of Millenials and beyond, there's a lot of hard work and optimism that could stand to be appreciated a little more... only time will tell.
