Not too many people know how life could be best used, it is a millennial dilemma, that has troubled souls of men for many, many generations.

From a generation ruled by the Moon to a generation ruled by the Sun, the difference between The Greatest Generation and The Baby Boomers is like night and day.

Due to their tendency to micromanage, they left little for their millennial and Gen Z children to work on themselves, resulting in the current problem of “adulting”—more so felt by the millennials, often being their eldest children.

Your manager wants to believe that you enjoy your job, or at least you won't spit in her coffee when she looks away. At the office, attitude counts for a lot.

The first and foremost easiest slip-up to get to a millennial’s bad side is power-tripping them. This is a generation that has seen a lot of B.S. in their lives, and nothing you do to hide yours will escape their sensitive lie detectors.

Dentro da vida prática também nunca me figurei. Até hoje, aos vinte e sete anos, não consegui ainda ganhar dinheiro pelo meu trabalho. Felizmente não preciso… E nem mesmo cheguei a entrar nunca na vida, na simples Vida com V grande — na vida social, se prefere. É curioso: sou um isolado que conhece meio mundo, um desclassificado que não tem uma dúvida, uma nódoa — que todos consideram, e que entretanto em parte alguma é admitido… Está certo. Com efeito, nunca me vi "admitido” em parte alguma. Nos próprios meios onde me tenho embrenhado, não sei por que senti me sempre um estranho…

I'm sick of that, I said. Young, young, young, that's what I get, all day, everyday. But I know your secret....You're all terrified of young people. We remind you of what it was like to have ideals, faith, freedom. We remind you of the losses you've taken as you've grown cynical, numb, disenchanted, compromising the life you imagined. I don't have to compromise yet. I don't have to do a single thing I don't want to do. That's why you hate me.

Seasoned digital daters are like lions who have had their prey killed, butchered, and served to them on a tray in their artificial habitat for so long that they’ve forgotten how to hunt.

Enduring treatment like this from those they held dear, they developed a sharp instinct regarding human nature, finely-tuned to detect those who only mean to take advantage of their trust. They developed an accurate sense of suspicion, learning intuitively how to weed out the lies that people tell themselves.

In order to live on this Earth together in harmony, humanity must make certain compromises to relate to each other. Everyone must make the necessary adaptations at some point in their lives—as children, they must adapt to their guardians; as adults, to their authorities and governments; and as elderly persons, to their caretakers. Those at the top now may not be there one day, and those at the bottom now could eventually rise to the top. Life is a cycle.

What would you do, if you weren’t afraid to die? This is the question that most millennials face in their lives.

And God said, “Let there be millennials.” Like a wrench in the machinery, the little creatures went out, played with toys and went to school. The adults were at first pleased—“ah, how might these little things fit in our established world?” they wondered. “In what way must we hammer them to fit our mold?” More underlings was something to be anticipated and so they hammered the little things. But the little things didn’t adapt—they cried in pain. They cried, but they didn’t change. They grew up, and the tears became resentment and turned into psychological disorders. The adults hammered again—just a little more and they should cooperate. But they didn’t. And soon enough, the youngsters were fully grown. The adults beheld the creatures in fear and muttered the only word that came to mind: “Monsters.

The millennials said it best: You Only Live Once. And for that precious thing that one can’t live without, they will spend their whole lives searching. When they find it, they will keep doing it until it kills them. The older generations shriek at this intensity, but it is simply how the millennial mind is wired. “What use of living if you don’t live on the edge?” they ask. After all, the life force is strongest the nearer we are to death. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

As for power, they have very little of that, having little money. Before they were born, it was pretty much unheard of for a generation to make less than their parents, and as such, their expectant parents, having achieved quite a lot for their own, showered them with gifts and praise, hoping to one day take part in the economic windfall that the special millennials were certain to achieve. Now that they have fallen short of the bar of success set by their parents, they’re demoted in the power hierarchy and considered economic untouchables.

As a child of the millennial generation, I was raised in a society in which we were under the misconception that women and men had reached equality. With the exception of very few matriarchal societies, women were more liberated than they had ever been in history. In America’s middle class, basic education was practically handed to us. We have the ability to obtain a higher education and career without men. So it took me nearly a decade after becoming sexually active to realize that, as a woman, I was socially oppressed. I grew up in a world where a woman’s abstinence until marriage was highly praised and if she must participate in premarital sex, to limit that activity to as few partners as possible. It was considered tacky to openly discuss my sexual encounters. I was also taught that, as a woman, I was hormonally programmed to be more emotional than men. If I had sex with a man, I was supposed to feel some sort of intimate attachment. If I didn’t, I was a cruel-hearted slut.

In short, millennials have been dealt a bad hand in their career, social, and romantic lives—some even in their family. In the karma points of the world, millennials are of the lowest caste so far. As a result, they are treated with disdain, contempt, and disrespect. Most of the time, they don’t fight back, usually in danger of losing their financial stability.

The problem with a generation treated like royalty as children as they partied their life to the fullest was that they became quite used to special treatment as they grew into adults and produced children of their own. As the Baby Boomers had babies of their own, the need to be the best transformed into “which one has the most special child?

Over the last few millennial, we've invented a series of technologies … that have made it progressively easier and easier for us to externalize our memories, for us to outsource this fundamental human capacity.

I became a feminist upon the realization that, whether physical, mental, or emotional, everything involved in obtaining love and approval from men required some form of self-mutilation.

The differences of the generations may be unsettling or overwhelming now, but rest assured that history merely repeats itself, and that everything is in order. The millennial hatred phenomenon is merely a representation of a common pattern in human life of favoring, disliking, detesting, accepting, and then finally surrendering to a new generation. It’s happened over history and will happen again.

Compared to other generations, millennials tend to be more collaborative, are accustomed to working in teams & have a passion for pressure.

In my early twenties, I treated sex like a bartering system, trading giving for receiving, feeling victorious when I’d received more pleasure, and swindled when I’d given more. As I matured, sex became a bond that was only gratifying when both parties were equally satisfied.

This is because only two things can fulfill millennials: First is to be completely understood, accepted and respected by a loyal companion whom they respect themselves—a lifelong seduction with someone they can call their own. This level of understanding and intimacy is the only way they can heal the wounds of their treacherous childhood. The second thing is having enough money to live a lifelong vacation and help people along the way—as they are an emotional generation, they are actually compassionate about their fellowmen though they may not seem like it. Nothing dissatisfies this cohort more than the need to fend for basic necessities, as it goes against their lifelong quest to find fulfillment and reduces them to their base human urges they consider beneath them, like fighting for resources and food—an anathema to this generation who puts a premium on self-actualization.

Ask one question: Would a Millennial (anyone born between 1980 and 2000) look forward to working here? Try this exercise. Take a group of people into a large, open room with tackable wall surfaces or whiteboards. Give them large sheets of paper, sticky notes, markers, and tape. Ask them to create a concept for a work environment (don't say “office”) using the following words: high-energy, collaborative, healthy, productive, engaging, innovative, interactive, high-tech, and regenerating.

In the end, for suffering so much without barely a grunt, for fighting and dying in a War decreed by their elders, for enduring The Great Depression, and for rebuilding their homelands, no other generation of the century has come close to the achievements of aptly-named “The Greatest Generation.

Anyway, in order to get along, the second Boomer group would have to learn to trust the younger millennials more, which is almost anathema to this micromanaging generation. Often, these are the parents or bosses who criticize millennials for doing things differently from what they were used to, which irks the youngsters who are more open to change. The millennials, on their part, would fare better by suspending their natural suspicion, and understanding that these elders are often just concerned with problem-solving underneath their hypercritical, nagging ways. These are people who have done things over and over all throughout their lives, and are having difficulty letting the old ways go.

Selena was born in a generation that had grown up on the edge. She’d grown up knowing that the little child starlet who voiced Anne-Marie on 'All Dogs Go to Heaven', Judith Barsi, had been murdered and set on fire by her own father. She’d grown up knowing that school shootings were more common than winning the lottery. She’d grown up in an age of terror.
