The Lost Generation

As a completely objective, third-party observer, I’ve watched and I’ve noticed something about the people of my age group. There’s this common denominator amongst the kids of “Gen Y” and it’s called misery.

We are all terribly sad. But why? What has the world done to us to make us so wildly unhappy? Is it something in the water? Our lifestyles? I refuse to believe that 20- and 30- somethings were this broken and melancholic fifty years ago.

I mean, okay. There’s the angst that we all felt in high school and growing up. I’m sure all teenagers of every generation have felt that. But why does it seem that these days, we are not growing out of it? Why is it so difficult for us to just figure out what we want in life? Are there too many options?

When did we become the lost generation?
