I use the following analogy quite often: we're like a goddamn Costco, too much going on in one place. This current generation has so much thrown at them. Before I get into what I'm really talking about, lets define what generation I'm actually targeting. Millennials. That's right, if you're born between 1976 to 2004 then congrats, you're apart of the most confused and overwhelmed generation that's ever walked the face of this planet.
Lets make this a little interesting though? Story time!
Welcome to Generation Overload. Here you will find an abundance of opportunities with a disproportional amount of time. Your journey will be accompanied by various realms of social media platforms which will fuel both ego and acceptance. To your right you will find education and knowledge encompassed in student debt and disordered sanity. Quite questionable but you're not allowed to cross that boundary of questioning because let's be real, degree=success. Now, on your left you'll find freedom of action accompanied with fear, ambiguity and societal disallowance. If you look closely you will find great love and care hidden in the pressure and conflicting rulings placed upon you by guardians commonly known as 'parents'. Fear not, for they also experienced their share of confusion in their generation. Moving forward with your journey you will be tossed and turned all while trying to hold onto your ambitions and dreams. However, you mustn't fear, for it will misguide you from your target. Don't forget to dress comfy. We're expecting heavy duties such as financing for a near million dollar house, finding the 'appropriate' spouse, managing a family, paying off student loans and settling into a career(s) all while setting an entrepreneurial ground for the coming generation. Oh...were you expecting to travel around the world all while doing all these mandatory requirements of life? Perhaps when you retire at 65 you can pull out that beach body and fly on a getaway to Hawaii. And remember, the journey is still filled with an immense amount of uncertainty so don't expect answers for anything. Enjoy the expedition!
Wow. I need a coffee after writing that LOL.
