People who are older have to deal with ageism. Those of us fresh out of college have to deal with it too. Some people don’t think we’re capable of much. Some really underestimate our ability.
So here are some things that we can do in our twenties to prove all those haters wrong.
I’ve read that one third of 20-somethings feel depressed.
I believe it. And it’s easy to see why. The society we live in today makes sure we compare every single aspect of our lives with that of other people.
In our twenties, we’re paving our path, digging through dirt, figuring out which road we’d like to go down.
We’re discovering ourselves. We’re discovering the world.
But it seems that every time we manage to achieve something great in our lives, we then feel the need to compare ourselves to other people. Suddenly, all the awesome stuff we’re doing doesn’t seem to matter all that much.
If you’re a part of the millennial generation, you’re unlucky. You may have already won the lottery, found a four-leaf clover and took home a new car like a lunatic on “The Price is Right.”
Good for you. Still unlucky.
The one upside to being so unlucky? We have plenty of tried-and-true wisdom to pass along…
