I have heard this term many times over the last few years. This is the generation born between 1982 and 2000. This makes me technically one of them because I was born in the late 80s. The other generations have nothing positive to say about ‘Millennials. I look at the other Millennials ways and feel like I’m not like them in many ways. Okay, I like the technology we now have and am on it a lot. However, I am not lazy. When I don’t do things I have a genuine reason… even if it’s just anxiety or depression. I don’t feel entitled to anything unless I’ve worked hard and feel that I should have got some kind of appreciation at the very least. Everyone can be shallow and selfish, even the other generations which have gone before and after us. I think that is something we all are as a younger person. As a young person you’re just thrown into this life knowing nothing and being inexperienced.
Shallowness and Selfishness is how every young person is until they find out it isn’t just about them in this world. Fame obsessed, well, I’d say that I used to be that way. Social media makes it hard not to want to be liked by others. People updating their relationship statues, talking about the wonderful relationships they have, posting selfies etc. This has made them become rather competitive. For instance, on Twitter it’s all about how many followers a person can get for a lot of millennials. I honestly do not care about how many followers I’ve got on this blogs Twitter page. . I have lost followers every week, but I regain the numbers again. Therefore I’ve actually lost nothing, just continuing to attract followers. Everyone seems to be a blogger in this generation. They all think that they have something to say. I hold my hands up to being like that but I feel that my sort of blog is a lot more educational than the beauty and fashion blogs ran by many people in my generation. I am aware that a lot of people with ASD’s have their own blogs but I try to make mine different. I don’t want to be just a blogger. I wrote a book as a teenager expecting no one to buy it but actually sold about 300 copies over 9 years. It wasn’t that expensive and quite small. I don’t want to be seen as a millennial. I’ve always felt older but acted younger than my age. I know it’s confusing.
