Millennials are the first generation raised with the Internet. The first generation to experience over-bearing parenting (due to lack of trust predominantly not with your child but with the environment and peers that the child is in). They’re at once constantly exposed to multiple social media. Need to go out for a meal? There’s multiple apps, opinions, reviews and ratings. Want a take a flight? There’s multiple options. Want to go on a get-away? There’s multiple locations. Want to find a life partner? There’s multiple apps and portals. I mean, literally, ANY decision you make will present you with a plethora of options.
Millennial suffer from anxiety at a much higher rate than generations that preceded them. These psychosomatic disorders are as common as the common cold with this generation. It’s so underlying that most wont even realize they suffer it. Only because it’s so easy to distract yourself right? Well as long as the distraction is a healthy one, you’re good! The worst part is most of them don’t want to believe / accept it until they have one of those scary anxiety / panic attacks that could be aggravated by almost nothing, so you suddenly realize you haven’t spent enough time ‘’figuring yourself out’’ or listening to the signs of your mind and body – you shoved it under the rug and now you have to go to a Psychiatrist to remind you how you feel.
