The economy is not doing so well. Educated people are out of jobs. There are severe climate change issues. Petrol prices are higher than ever. The air we are breathing in is poisonous. The food we are eating isn’t fresh. As an average millennial, your life doesn’t sound so good. It is in fact, full of troubles that you didn’t even create in the first place. With SO MUCH going on, the Millennial generation is still optimistic because maybe they have nothing to lose. With everything at its worse, they see a golden opportunity of change. Of making things better! Maybe, they like the idea of living in a world where there’re so many improvements to make!
So, move beyond all the criticism for the millennial generation and try to see them for what they really are. What they really stand for. And rejoice in the fact that there is still so much to be hopeful for!
