They say change is the only constant in life.
And the Millennial generation (largely people born 1980 and onwards) have moved quickly beyond the Gen X (largely people born between 1960 and 1980), and adapted to change really well. I am a part of the same millennial generation and I feel that because we grew up with technology, have always been online or connected 24/7 , we are happy and open to embrace the ever increasing dynamicity that life offers us.
For us Millenials, change largely brings great amount of joy; taking us places – from career opportunities, to exploring places across the globe for work and leisure, to finding a new version of our own self.
While we clearly acknowledge the value of change, there is no denying that it puts a lot of demands on us- physically and emotionally- and we end up feeling stressed. And suddenly, the ‘valued’ change can turn into an ‘ugly’ challenge that life has thrown at us. Sub-consciously, we start evaluating ourselves against some set “Normal” standards and often, when we fall short of these targets, we feel like we have failed. This makes us blame the change for the “bad” circumstances we have landed in.
