Millennial’s Have Less Of This & It’s Really OK
carly miller - May 12, 2019

There’s a lot of noise and hype surrounding this generation- stereotypes, generalizations, biases. Regardless, we all have come to love being a millennial. Our special language like, “The struggle is real,” is something you take pride in. Your dream to live in big, diverse cities like New York City or Los Angeles (disregarding how your bank account might be really not so supportive of this big move. All things internet related to new emojis to memes. Nevertheless, as in all things in life, there are things millennials have less of. But remember this: you are living your #bestlife. Period.

 

People tend to assume a lot about millennials. Judgments about what millennials spend their money on, like Instagram-worthy avocado toast and fancy drinks at coffee shops. They say it’s unrealistic for not wanting to work a traditional nine to five job. That we’re too much on our phones when in actuality we are taking multitasking to the extreme, holding multiple conversations, checking email, and reading the news.

 

Yes, some of that is valid, but at the same time, we are not getting the full credit we deserve. Millennials truthfully are innovative. We have pathed the way for a whole new lifestyle that may have less of what other people deem essentials. But, the thing is, we’re doing just fine. So here are 3 things millennials have less of and what that means for us.

 

Friends

 

 

Millennials don’t necessarily have a huge friend group. Instead, their squad is a tight-knit group of best friends that love and support them through everything. They are their ride-and-dies, number one cheerleaders.

 

Drama

 

 

Millennials have less drama. Okay, it certainly might not seem that way given that a lot of us love reality television shows to keep up with the drama. The truth is a lot of us don’t have the energy or interest to deal with toxic people, petty arguments, or just generally situations that don’t serve your wellbeing. Instead, we take self-care seriously, filling our space and time with people who laugh and are happy.

 

Free time

 

 

The typical millennial is not lazy. In fact, they are pretty jam-packed most of the time. Working during the day, running errands, meeting friends for happy hour at night during the week. On the weekends, spending time with our significant other and even working more. It’s really rare that millennials find themselves without something to do. That’s okay, though, and maybe even leads to a more fulfilled life.
