    Do you think too much is expected of our generation? We are generation Z. In a position that no other generation has experienced, with technology beyond the wildest dreams of our predecessors. We will go into jobs probably beyond even our comprehension, but at the end of the day, we are still people. People who are at a significant disadvantage trying to get a job with our ever increasing population, hardship trying to get a house, when not only are they few and far between, but it is ten times harder for me to get a mortgage on a house than for my parents generation. With all that stress, are we truly the generation that has it all?

    I think the only way society will truly advance is when we change the focus of success to being happy, rather than accumulating stuff. Right now, if you are deemed successful, chances are you have lots of money and stuff. But chances are you aren't very happy with that.

    The pressure on the younger generation to succeed at all costs is fuelling rising mental health issues with with that a general feeling of failure and unhappiness. And all because they perceive their inability to accumulate stuff as a failure somehow.
