Much chat revolves about Millennials, mostly about how they are not cool. But is that even true? Let’s see what is and what isn’t, in our humble (but mostly first-hand-experience-based) opinion. Here are the most common misconceptions about Millennials, debunked.
Let’s start with my favorite and the most absurd of all. Of course, lazy people exist, and I am sure several happen to be young. In the same way, it is also very normal for one generation to see the next one as “having it easier”. However, most Millennials I know are hard-working individuals that are just made tougher by a very unforgiving market.
Sure, social media is taking over our lives. All of our lives. SO much that we literally cannot wait to get home and disconnect a little (or a lot). Also, my grandparents are on Facebook, which says it all about it being a generational thing.
We all know that someone who thinks he/she deserves it all just because he/she exists. That someone is called spoiled. I do know a lot of spoiled Millennials, and I know just as many non-Millennials with the same problem.
This goes hand in hand with the entitlement claim. It is actually also the misconception closer to the truth. A lot of Millennials have parents who have raised them showering them with compliments, and they are starting to become the same kind of parents themselves. This said, give us a chance: we know how to handle real life when thrown at us.<!-- Simple Share Buttons Adder (6.2.2) simplesharebuttons.com -->
