MILLENNIAL HITS BACK AT EMPLOYER WHO SAYS HE IS ‘STRAWBERRY’ GENERATION

My employer recently labelled myself and a few of my peers with the term ‘strawberry generation’.

As a millennial myself, I find myself often being accused of being part of the “Strawberry Generation”- that is, a generation of people who are perceived to be fragile and easily bruised.

I have heard such accusations from my employers who say that young people today are too sensitive and unable to handle criticism.

I disagree strongly with this. I believe that the younger generation, myself included, is no more sensitive than any other generation.

We may be more vocal and open about our feelings and opinions, but that doesn’t mean we are easily bruised.

We are exposed to a variety of pressures, both in our personal and professional lives, and we learn to cope with them as best we can.

We are also far more informed and aware of the issues facing our world, which can lead to us being more passionate and outspoken about them.

Rather than us being easily bruised, I believe that the real problem lies in the way the older generation perceives us.

Many employers may see the younger generation as being too outspoken, too opinionated, or too demanding, and this can lead to them feeling frustrated and threatened.

However, I believe that if employers opened their minds and embraced the differences between the generations, they could learn to better understand and appreciate our perspectives.

It is true that young people can be more sensitive to certain issues, but this doesn’t mean that they are easily bruised.

We are a generation that is passionate, informed, and determined to make a difference. We want to be taken seriously and treated with respect, and we understand that this means taking responsibility for our actions.

I believe that the “Strawberry Generation” label is unfair. We are no more fragile or easily bruised than any other generation.

We may be more vocal in our opinions and more passionate about our causes, but this doesn’t mean that we can’t handle criticism or difficult conversations.

We understand that we must work hard and take responsibility for our actions, and that we should always strive to do our best.

The “Strawberry Generation” label not only does a disservice to young people today but also to the older generations.

It implies that millennials are somehow inferior to their predecessors, when in fact we are just as capable of achieving great things.

We may be different, but this doesn’t mean that we are any less.

We are no more easily bruised than any other generation, and our passion and determination should be seen as a strength rather than a weakness.

We may not be the same as our predecessors, but that doesn’t mean that we are any less capable of achieving success.
