I thought that by the age of 21 I would feel like an adult, become a Mature and formed person. I'm 24 now, and I don't feel any older than I did when I was 16. Of course, I have become more Mature, I make fewer mistakes. But I still have a lot to learn, so much to do and experience. So when will I feel like an adult? Will I Wake up one morning and realize that everything is different, or will my self-perception not change?
As a child, I thought that 24-25 years were the best years. I thought I would have my own place, a white car, a great career, and enough money to buy luxury shoes. I was wrong, of course. I live in a rented apartment with a friend, I don't have a car, I don't have money for Prada shoes. At least I'm happy with my work. At least in something I was not mistaken when I was 6 years old, thinking about the future.
I feel very young in friendships and romantic relationships, and I'm still trying to figure it out. I'm losing friends and I don't know what to do. I'm losing guys and I blame myself. I'm desperate to find love, but I haven't been able to for years. I still haven't even learned how to fill out my tax return without the help of the Internet.
At 24, I don't feel successful or fulfilled. My life is not as bright and exciting as I dreamed it would be. But all in good time. I'm working on it like everyone else. Perhaps you shouldn't try to be perfect and keep the worldview of a 6-year-old child? More dreaming, laughing, and not taking life so seriously.
Someone else's opinion. People of generation Y are focused on the opinions of others. The situation is compounded by social networks full of success stories. People publish mass testimonies of their achievements or what they want to pass off as them. After 2-3 hours in social networks, a person gets the feeling that everyone around them is a superhero, and only he is ordinary and ordinary. Everyone around you is doing incredible things: launching new businesses, earning huge amounts of money without getting up from the sofa, meeting show business stars, spending time at resorts, and wearing designer clothes. You're the only one who seems to be thinking about finding a decent job and paying the rent. In fact, businesses are often not so successful and fall apart after a couple of months, a lot of money-a random one-time earnings, a photo from a luxury resort against a palm tree in the Park. But they don't write about it.
Plenty of opportunities. Their eyes run away from the options: a variety of professions, career strategies available for the development of business areas. They grab several things at once: learn foreign languages, master programming, try out sports and creativity. Realizing that all at once do not have time, often fall into a stupor, afraid to make the wrong choice and "put on the wrong horse".
They need more time than the previous generation to try out different fields of activity and decide on their main direction. Their parents had no time to choose. You had to work and earn money, where and by whom - it was almost not important. Millennials have grown up in more prosperous times. Their desire to learn and try is partly due to the hyperprotection of their parents, who at one time lacked support.
