Just yesterday, I was sent an interesting article I’m pretty sure I have come across before. In short, it’s about Gen Y (the generation born between the late 1970s and the mid 1990s), in particular, the yuppies of Gen Y referred to in the text as “GYPSY,” Gen Y Protagonists & Special Yuppies.
Apart from going back in history to explain the different influences previous generations have had on the mentality of GYPSYs, the article names three extremely interesting characteristics, one of which being that GYPSYs are constantly under the impression that everyone else’s grass is greener. Now, this perception as such is nothing new. But, as the article goes on to state, social media has really brought this to a new dimension and it’s not hard to imagine why. We love to show our chocolate side on Facebook and whether we’re posting pictures of the delicious food we’re about to eat, what we look like at the gym or our very best vacation pics, etc., we only ever seem to want to convey beautiful images of ourselves. Still, and we know this is true, we all have our doubts, insecurities and frustrations. So even if the grass seems sooOoooOOoo much greener for somebody else, don’t buy it. Instead, make sure you’re happy doing what you’re doing. That’s what matters!
