Millennial Murderers

Millennial Murderers

You’ve probably seen articles those articles that insist millennials are killing this and that. “Millennials are killing the beer industry,” “Millennials are killing the housing industry,” “Millennials are killing…” oh STFU already! We’re millennial murderers, apparently everything we don’t touch dies. I’m so sick of seeing these articles.

Millennial Murderers

We’re just out here living our lives, and people complain about everything we do. Those old ass baby boomers keep forgetting that we’ll be the ones who to take care of them as they continue to age. And don’t get me started on those gen xer’s who think they’re sooo smart. They really think they’re so much better than us. Yeah, right lol! I know I’m sounding pretty petty, but I’m just sick of the millennial bashing. We are not ruining everything, we’re not millennial murderers, we’re not lazy, and most of us aren’t entitled. Just let us live!

Sure, every generation catches flack from the generations that came before them, but I think my generation gets it the worst. Of course millennials have faults and flaws, but don’t get mad at us for wanting to live happier lives. Instead, applaud us for working smarter, not harder. We’re changing the game, so you can either get with it or get left behind.

  1. I feel you. Each generation seems to want to bash its usurpers. Wait a bit longer in life and you’ll find yourself doing it. I know I did. I’m just realizing we tend to do it out of nostalgia, or past worship. People have to alter their belief that the past will be better than the future.

      1. Lol, it gets harder as the years go by. You’ll see. Some of it being true is what makes it hard. Things not being done how you like it will grow over the years. It’s just the way it is. Music is a prime example. I’m still looking for the Marvin Gaye of the millennial generation.

  2. PREACH! But for real, I am so tired of being ragged on about this or that because millennial apparently mess everything up. Let’s focus on the good because very generation has had its faults.

  3. I definitely feel you on that one. I especially hate the misconception that we’re all lazy because that’s definitely not true. But I’m also guilty of saying that about the younger kids lol

    1. Me too! I am a little worried about those late millennials and gen zers lol! I really don’t get why they call us lazy. Just because we didn’t have to walk ten miles to get to school and we don’t have to write letters to communicate, that doesn’t make us lazy lol.

      1. Lol right! I think it has a little to do with technology because it’s allowed our lives to be a little easier. I guess lol idk.

    1. What’s less ideal, Lol? All things considered? Reverse bashing is an issue too I see, lol. jk. The previous gen messes it up for the current gen and the cycle goes on. All in All, we create in our own NOW so we each are the master of our fate. The NOW is always here as long as we live.

      1. Very true! I think every generation needs that sort of kick in the pants from the previous generation. I think with millennials have been receiving a constant, never ending kick in the pants. We just need a break.

  4. This is so spot-on, Crystal! It’s really disappointing to see how older generations react to millennials simply living to adapt to a world that they didn’t create. Every new “Millennials are Killing ______” article I read gets my blood boiling; so what if we are more apt to live in apartments or don’t want to buy diamonds? What does that have to do with what we ARE contributing to the world–new ideas, fresh perspectives, the raw talent so many of us have and are willing to share? It’s wild and disappointing, and I worry about where the world will go from here.

    1. My thoughts exactly! I don’t know why they won’t let us live. Everything we do is a problem, but they gave us this hand, we’re just playing it differently than they want us to. They criticize us to death, but we’re too sensitive. I’m just so sick of it.

  5. Hey crystal I’m new to the blogging world. I have to admit the title caught me off guard but i was intrigued. I agree the generation before us complains about how we conduct our lives but somehow forgets that they are the ones who raised us. You would think that they would want better for us. They claim that were lazy, do they want us to work as hard as they had to, to make ends meet?. I feel like things are maybe easier than they were back then, because our generation is really resourceful in coming up with new ideas to do things. I feel like were not as lazy as they say we are the expansion of technology has just given us more opportunities, freedom and time than the previous generation.

    1. Exactly! I think they forgot that they are the ones who helped propel the technology we use today. I really don’t understand why they’re so bitter. “In my day we had to use actual calculators!” -Our phones have calculators. “Y’all are too lazy to use real calculators!” You can’t win with these people 😂

  6. This is good. As one from the “older generation” (a proud baby boomer) but a mother of 2 millennials, you all do get a bad rap. I do admire your generation’s sponenaity and “just do it” attitude. Stay strong and yes, please continue to fund my social security! 😀
