The truth is that millennials have a lot to be thankful for and a lot to be proud of. The fact that their parents and grandparents didn’t have to worry about things like being the primary breadwinner, or that they had a car, or that their parents didn’t have to worry about a job, or that their parents didn’t have to worry about the mortgage.
The problem is that millennials have had to face all of these things for too long. The fact that we dont have to worry about those things anymore seems to be what makes us so entitled.
It’s no coincidence that the first time millennials started a car, they were 18, with some kind of a learner’s permit. Their parents were lucky to be able to get them a driver’s license or the ability to drive a car in the first place. It’s no coincidence that the first time millennials start a car, they’re too young to even have a driver’s license and the cost of a car is pretty much a no-go.
It’s just the way we are. I know I am a millennial and I can’t wait to get on a flight and fly away for three hours. That’s the kind of entitlement millennials have. That makes me feel like I deserve at least some of what I have.
I know I am entitled but I just can’t help it. I’m an adult and I should be able to just take in all the free stuff I get and just use it. But I’m also a millennial and I’m not that entitled and I deserve some of what I got.
I have to admit, I am one of those people. I just feel like I have the right to take in the things that are free and use them. I actually went to my local mall and started asking anyone that was around why they have all the free stuff and what they are using it for and I just felt like an entitled little kid. It was so funny and so infuriating.
I can understand the feeling of entitlement. I myself have had the same feeling of entitlement from many of my friends. But what I would like to point out is that those entitlement-heads are the ones in charge. They just seem to think that they are entitled to everything. And it’s important to point out that there is nothing more condescending than being entitled.
It’s also important for us to distinguish between entitlement and privilege. I’m not talking about feeling entitled because you got a free trip to Disneyworld for your birthday. I’m just talking about feeling entitled because you got a free trip to Disneyworld for your birthday. When you’re entitled, you think you’re entitled to everything.
In my experience, a lot of millennials have trouble distinguishing between entitlement and privilege. They think they are entitled to the same things that others are entitled to when they are actually being treated differently. In fact, they are not entitled to the same thing they think they are entitled to. These entitlement things are privileges! I have a lot of experience with this kind of entitlement, as well as a lot of privilege.
