It’s no secret that the younger generations are on a bit of a struggle bus right now as compared to how their parents and grandparents were doing at their age.
The economy is turning, social norms are shifting constantly, and going back and comparing life points to those who came before is…frankly kind of hilarious.
Which is probably why so many people are doing so on Twitter.
