This Gen-Xer's Heartwarming Advice To Millennials Has Twitter Users In Tears

By Mustafa Gatollari

I feel like the cool thing to do is to bash on millennials. And I love bashing things or people who deserve it. It's always easy to target generations of younger kids and blame them for the problems of the world. Heck people were blaming Rock and roll for the problems that faced Baby Boomers. Watch any old movie and you'll find them talking about how disrespectful they were and how it was ruining society. Grease is a perfect example of older generations being out of touch. So sure it's easy to blame Avocado Toast on why millennials can't buy houses, but to act like there's something wrong with an entire generation is ridiculous. Especially seing the previous generation was responsible for its upbringing. A generation that should care about their future instead of just complain. 

But when you start hating on an entire generation of "youngsters" because you listened to some rubbish about millennials being lazy, or not wanting to work for a living, or whining about having it too easy, well, then, you're just misinformed. It's never been tougher for young adults and stats back that up. So before you harp on a young adult for something ,consider how much harder it is today.

Which is why writer Tangela Ekhoff's encouraging words to the world's most-maligned generation are so refreshing.
