Why I Get Mad When People Say We Are The "Me" Generation

Selfishness doesn't just appear out of thin air, it is taught.

When I hear people say that my generation is the "me" generation it makes me uncharacteristically mad. Bo Burnham, one of my favorite comedians/people ever, talks about it in one of his comedy shows.

He talks about how we might be more self-centered than other generations but it was because we were taught to be that way.

How social media was created so that people could perform, perform their entire lives and get reassurance from others that they were great. I've since talked about this with several friends.

When I write or really when anyone creates anything there are multiple ways one can interpret WHY they created it. Did they create it for themselves, to get rid of some creativity/emotions/boredom? Did they conceive it to share it and have others tell them how amazing they are? Or was it a mix of both, for themselves and for others reassurance, or none of those at all?

It makes it hard to not get in your head as a creator, which, this day in age, is basically all of us. We all share on social media: look at this picture I took, look at how good of a mom/friend/significant other I am, look at all my accomplishments and tell me I'm pretty and great and everything else.

Also, who are we to say that it's bad to be a little self-absorbed sometimes? To want attention and reassurance. I think you only really get in trouble when you come to expect it or need it to be happy.

We all want to be accepted and isn't that really what we do on social media now? Sure, it is a heightened version of it, wanting to be accepted on every aspect of your life that you share, but again, isn't that what we all want, to fit in?

So before you call us the "me" generation remember that we had to get the idea from somewhere and that, like every generation before us, we're just trying to be accepted. We were just given a bigger platform to perform on.
