Actually I DO have to add something
About the Millennial article
These gifs demonstrate why I do not find myself in this article, nor has anyone added this so far.
Growing up we all heard these “You’re going to be great one day” “You can be whatever you want to be!” etc
I wanted to be a fashion designer, popular, a scientist, a chess champion, nobel prize winner, actress, etc. But none of that is going to happen. I failed art school, have barely any friends, a f-ed up body image and I have no idea where I’m going. It’s dawning on me that I am becoming the same person as all those other grey-suited lambs walking arround in our urban jungle.
Unlike Tyler Durden, I’m not THAT pissed off, but instead I’m crushed, falling apart with self doubt and yearning for self-confirmation (not to mention my parents’ disappointment). I am somewhat angry about the illusions they made us see about being able to accomplish anything, because it’s not true. It’s even less true because those same people that told us that changed our economy in such a way that education becomes less and less affordable and the job market is something many have wept about.
As for the narcissism described in the Stein-article, I admit to that. My need for self-confirmation needs to be met in some way. Those ways are tumblr and facebook. But my narcissism is not a personal fault. It’s the fault of those who made me believe in something impossible.
So please like, reblog and follow: it’s not for me, it’s for my narcissism.
