The only question that remains is whether we'll be remembered for being the first generation to accept a more logical and rational take on love or the generation that gave up on it altogether. The most common trend amongst Generation-Yers is our need for instant gratification.
We grew up and continue to thrive in a culture that allows us instant access to just about anything.
Ever wonder what our generation will be known for in the decades to come? There are so many great things we could be remembered for, but if history has taught us anything, it's the negative that tends to last the test of time, not the positive.
My greatest worry is our generation will be looked at as the generation that gave up on love. The generation that forgot how to love — which is ridiculous.
They fight and talk behind each other's backs and say they absolutely “hate” the people they're so in love with.
Many times, they will cheat on each other or talk nonstop about how much they'd like to.
They get defensive, protective and alarmingly confused at the absurd idea you just slammed on the table.
You miss them, but they’re right there beside you, except that they’re kind of not. Not everyone who has depression will have a formal diagnosis, so knowing what to watch out for can help to make sense of the changes you might notice. You won’t always have it in you to fight alongside them and you won’t always know what to do but that’s okay – you don’t have to do any of that to fight for them.
They stop engaging and they stop enjoying things, even the things they used to love.
Our fights can get heated, especially when we're tired and overwhelmed with work, life, and kids.
Most of the time, though, we really enjoy each other.
