Okay! I need your help.
I’m not old. I don’t think I am. Oh shit, maybe I am sometimes. BUT I try and keep up. I really do… I’m always open to learning and listening…Well, here I go with another “but”… Oh the kids of today… Lmao.
Yes. I believe I just actually said that…now I need your help with understanding the Zoomers.
Some observations: The Zoomers of today appear to be extra shy, more anxious, less willing to try new things, not interested in work, rather communicate online than in person, and don’t want to stand out in any way (no attention please…positive/negative/neutral).
I want to know why young people don’t want to connect with others.
Things I’ve been told from Gen Zeds/Zees AKA Gen Z AKA Zoomers…all born between 2000-2010.
“I don’t want to call the computer help line because I’ll have to “talk to a stranger”.
“That stranger won’t like me.”
“They’ll think I’m an idiot.”
“I won’t know what to say.”
“I’d rather eat the incorrect order that the server brought than send it back.”
“I don’t want to go into the store and have to ask for help. Then I’ll have to talk to a real person… and a stranger no less.”
“It doesn’t matter that I got the wrong order at a restaurant. Even though I hate the food she brought and I may be allergic, I won’t send it back. I’d never do that. And, I’ll still leave a big tip too.”
Anyone who says or does anything negative, disparaging, entitled, or obnoxious is a Karen” (or the male equivalent–Kyle, Ken, Kevin…).
There’s no middle ground for a boomer who may be trying to make a point. Yes, sometimes…they actually have a point.
Are there any Gen Zs out there….or even some Millennials, who can explain all of this to me please.
We’re all different and we have different masks that we put on when we leave the house. Though the package is the same, we act different at work than we do at home, and different again when we’re talking to a neighbor.
What I think we have to remember is that you’re judging yourself before anyone else is and as a result you’re not even giving that other person a chance. That’s not very fair. Check out this post about calling yourself fat— totally judgmental against those you don’t want to offend. It’s a bit twisted.
The Auntie Lesson really is: Don’t let life pass you by because of fear and anxiety. Everyone else has their own issues and really aren’t looking at yours. Be Kind. Be positive.
