Worth a look:
There are four reasons why Generation Y are unhappy: 1) parenting, 2) technology, 3) impatience, and 4) environment. Listen to Simon Sinek and give your 2-cents.
Any comments welcome…
It is those parents, of course, the young(er) boomers or the X-ers who did it all wrong. True, those parents however, were pushed into “building up self-esteem” by making all kids a winner and all got rewards at assemblies at school. I always had my strong reservations about that! I remember that I one time wrote a critical paper about this “self-esteem” pushing and the inflated self-esteem some young people obtained as a result of this.
But, I do see a huge contributing factor in technology, Simon’s second reason why Millennials are unhappy. However, social media and “the likes” as a measure of worthiness have not just infiltrated their lives but also the lives of their parents as they too are continuously using their smart phone and are huge users of social media.
OK, the solution: Keep all technology away and try to find balance and happiness in the serenity of just being without artificial confirmation that you are worth it.
