If you are a “millennial” you are probably used to getting tons of hate from older generations. We are labeled as unmotivated because we are living with our parents longer and not getting married as quickly. We are called lazy because so many of us are unemployed or underemployed. We are criticized as entitled because we are tired of working our asses off for a fraction of the money our parents made in comparable industries at our age.

If you are tired of all of that negativity about our generation, show this Tumblr post to the millennial-hater in your circle, they will be positively BLOWN away.

The post starts by calling out older generations for how much easier things were when they were growing up.


Then reminding everyone about the realities of today’s economy.


And finally, it says what everyone must be thinking.

There comes a point where parlaying blame is no longer useful, but it is also important to set the record straight: Millennials do not deserve the hate we get, because we did not dig the grave we are in, and we are doing the best we can with what we have. TC mark
