Millennials vs. All Other Generations

Readers of The Next America by Paul Taylor, Generation Me by Jean M. Twenge, The Fourth Turning by William Strauss and Neil Howe will love Gaslighting the Millennials.

Everyone reads the headlines. Millennials aren’t buying diamonds or saving for retirement. Millennials want cushy jobs handed to them by organizations with futuristic nap pods. Millennials are killing the housing market because they eat too many avocados.

The truth is, millennials were raised being told they could do anything if they worked hard, and then they worked hard only to be told the world owes them nothing. Here’s a headline people need to read: Millennials were set up.

The strength of generational differences: The older generations begrudge so-called dependence on technology and social media, but this connection allows millennials to join together and adapt to new challenges faster than ever before. It allows people to plan massive socio-political movements at the drop of a hat, learn about new concepts and cultures, and understand more about ourselves and each other.

Social media and social awareness: Social media has spread the word about recognizing emotional abuse and its effects on mental health and behavior, inspiring younger generations to take back agency and power. For every injustice someone experiences, they can find someone else to say, “Me too. You are not alone.”

Millennials rising and revolting: The tide of young adults standing up for themselves is culminating in massive societal change. The Gaslighting of the Millennial Generation uncovers the misconceptions about millennials, examining not only their unique strengths but also the baggage they have inherited from Baby Boomers. It shows just how different millennials are from previous generations and why that’s a very good thing.

About the author (2019)

Caitlin Fisher is a sharp-tongued blogger who shares her thoughts on lifestyle, trauma, mental health, and social causes on her blog Born Again Minimalist. Caitlin Fisher wrote her first book when she was six, a self-illustrated autobiography in pencil and crayon. She never expected to publish a real book, but her life has always brought her back to the written word no matter what her professional position. As an undergraduate student she wrote for the school newspaper and relished in research papers for psychology courses, and with a Master's degree in Higher Education Administration she planned to become a professional career counselor for students, assisting with cover letters and resumes. With fifty thousand dollars in student loan debt and zero job prospects, she temped at a real estate office in her hometown before landing a full time position as a specialty chemical purchaser, which had nothing at all to do with her educational background. After nearly four years building a freelance copywriting business, she made the leap into full-time marketing copywriting and is now a marketing content manager.
