trophies

Someone once told me that my
generation was terrible because
we' re the generation that
everyone gets a trophy."
I think they neglected the fact that
their generation were the ones
that gave us the trophies.
It' s like if someone would come
up to you every day and punch
you, and then one day, start fake
punching you and being like "Why
did you flinch?"
And then write an article about
why we' re the "flinging
generation."

I do believe humans are becoming weaker as time progresses. The weak are no longer "filtered" out. But this process has been happening for longer than one generation and it is not the fault of any particular generation. The success of our ancestors will only lead to the eventual failure of their offspring.

it was the last generation that raised this one but somehow it is entirely our fault.

Alright, here's a pretty unpopular opinion coming in: I feel like our generation blaming the previous generation for our problems is just as bad as the previous generation blaming us for their problems, or calling us "privileged" or "bratty" or whatever adjectives they use. Can we just stop pointing fingers and throwing blame around and actually work on our problems?

Defending ourselves and pointing blame for no reason are different. My ex's dad used to talk a lot about how our generation was screwed because nobody knew what losing was because we got trophies all the time and we'd never understood failure. **** us, right?

Cut to my days in recreational soccer where we got yearly "participation" trophies, or the fact that my school got rid of Valedictorians because it "made some kids feel bad".

Every student thought that policy was bull **** , but we have no control over how the generation above us treats us when we're kids. We can just call them on their **** when we're older.

people quick to complain about this generation forget who raised it.
