Ramesh Lohia

Marcella Purnama
“Our Peter Pan generation is unhappy. All our lives, we want to grow up—
to be treated like adults, to have freedom to choose. Then we get here and
it turns out being an adult sucks. We pay the bills and taxes, watching others succeed while we are forever waiting for our turn.

We believe we are special, but nothing special has come our way.”
Marcella Purnama, What I Wish I Had Known

Charles   Lee
“Truly the worst generation. Stupid children nowadays are nothing like my time. We were far more independent. We weren’t so weak that we needed to lean on others to make it in this world. Either you were the best or you were trash. That was the bottom line. You can’t even fight a rebellion with your own strength.”
Charles Lee, Children of the Slums

“The millennials said it best: You Only Live Once. And for that precious thing that one can’t live without, they will spend their whole lives searching. When they find it, they will keep doing it until it kills them. The older generations shriek at this intensity, but it is simply how the millennial mind is wired. “What use of living if you don’t live on the edge?” they ask. After all, the life force is strongest the nearer we are to death. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”

“In the end, for suffering so much without barely a grunt, for fighting and dying in a War decreed by their elders, for enduring The Great Depression, and for rebuilding their homelands, no other generation of the century has come close to the achievements of aptly-named “The Greatest Generation.”

“Our career mantra should be learn, relearn, repeat.”

Cate East
“The problem with a generation treated like royalty as children as they partied their life to the fullest was that they became quite used to special treatment as they grew into adults and produced children of their own. As the Baby Boomers had babies of their own, the need to be the best transformed into “which one has the most special child?”

“Anyway, in order to get along, the second Boomer group would have to learn to trust the younger millennials more, which is almost anathema to this micromanaging generation. Often, these are the parents or bosses who criticize millennials for doing things differently from what they were used to, which irks the youngsters who are more open to change. The millennials, on their part, would fare better by suspending their natural suspicion, and understanding that these elders are often just concerned with problem-solving underneath their hypercritical, nagging ways. These are people who have done things over and over all throughout their lives, and are having difficulty letting the old ways go.”

“Due to their tendency to micromanage, they left little for their millennial and Gen Z children to work on themselves, resulting in the current problem of “adulting”—more so felt by the millennials, often being their eldest children.”

“And God said, “Let there be millennials.”
Like a wrench in the machinery, the little creatures went out, played with toys and went to school. The adults were at first pleased—“ah, how might these little things fit in our established world?” they wondered. “In what way must we hammer them to fit our mold?” More underlings was something to be anticipated and so they hammered the little things. But the little things didn’t adapt—they cried in pain. They cried, but they didn’t change. They grew up, and the tears became resentment and turned into psychological disorders. The adults hammered again—just a little more and they should cooperate. But they didn’t. And soon enough, the youngsters were fully grown.
The adults beheld the creatures in fear and muttered the only word that came to mind: “Monsters.”

“What would you do, if you weren’t afraid to die?
This is the question that most millennials face in their lives.”

“In their lives, they struggle with betrayal and power-tripping. Betrayal came at an early age to this generation.”

“Enduring treatment like this from those they held dear, they developed a sharp instinct regarding human nature, finely-tuned to detect those who only mean to take advantage of their trust. They developed an accurate sense of suspicion, learning intuitively how to weed out the lies that people tell themselves.”

“They bond deeply with their chosen companions, often unsatisfied with a shallow connection.”

Cate East
“This is because only two things can fulfill millennials: First is to be completely understood, accepted and respected by a loyal companion whom they respect themselves—a lifelong seduction with someone they can call their own. This level of understanding and intimacy is the only way they can heal the wounds of their treacherous childhood. The second thing is having enough money to live a lifelong vacation and help people along the way—as they are an emotional generation, they are actually compassionate about their fellowmen though they may not seem like it. Nothing dissatisfies this cohort more than the need to fend for basic necessities, as it goes against their lifelong quest to find fulfillment and reduces them to their base human urges they consider beneath them, like fighting for resources and food—an anathema to this generation who puts a premium on self-actualization.”

Cate East
“As for power, they have very little of that, having little money. Before they were born, it was pretty much unheard of for a generation to make less than their parents, and as such, their expectant parents, having achieved quite a lot for their own, showered them with gifts and praise, hoping to one day take part in the economic windfall that the special millennials were certain to achieve. Now that they have fallen short of the bar of success set by their parents, they’re demoted in the power hierarchy and considered economic untouchables.”

Cate East
“In short, millennials have been dealt a bad hand in their career, social, and romantic lives—some even in their family. In the karma points of the world, millennials are of the lowest caste so far. As a result, they are treated with disdain, contempt, and disrespect. Most of the time, they don’t fight back, usually in danger of losing their financial stability.”
Cate East, Generational Astrology: How Astrology Can Crack the Millennial Code

Cate East
“The first and foremost easiest slip-up to get to a millennial’s bad side is power-tripping them. This is a generation that has seen a lot of B.S. in their lives, and nothing you do to hide yours will escape their sensitive lie detectors.”

Cate East
“In order to live on this Earth together in harmony, humanity must make certain compromises to relate to each other. Everyone must make the necessary adaptations at some point in their lives—as children, they must adapt to their guardians; as adults, to their authorities and governments; and as elderly persons, to their caretakers. Those at the top now may not be there one day, and those at the bottom now could eventually rise to the top. Life is a cycle.”
Cate East, Generational Astrology: How Astrology Can Crack the Millennial Code

Cate East
“The differences of the generations may be unsettling or overwhelming now, but rest assured that history merely repeats itself, and that everything is in order.
The millennial hatred phenomenon is merely a representation of a common pattern in human life of favoring, disliking, detesting, accepting, and then finally surrendering to a new generation. It’s happened over history and will happen again.”
