My social media feed is full of reposts of TikTok videos featuring Gen Zers having a lot of trouble at work.
“Lazy Girl Jobs,” which encourages women to seek low-stress, minimal-effort, and sometimes remote jobs (and, of course, high-paying ones), has become a viral phenomenon. One young woman spoke on camera about her dissatisfaction with working a 9-to-5 job because she was tired from commuting and didn’t have enough “free time.”
It’s easy to blame these young people, but I really blame the parents. This is sad because Gen Z is primarily being raised by Gen X, which should make their children wonderfully independent.
But sadly, as we continue to witness through social media, many young people are struggling. Here’s where they’re disappointed and how you can change it.
What Gen Z wants to cancel the most – The answers about my generation will surprise you
Gen Z isn’t ready for work
With young people consuming so much Marxist propaganda online and even in school, it makes no sense for them to work as little as possible and just expect their food, clothing, shelter, and entertainment to fall from the sky. Not surprising. they.
When you’re young, you’re starting from scratch. You probably don’t have much net worth (or maybe you have negative net worth, like I had with college loans). You don’t have much experience. So, yes, you have to work hard to meet your needs and wants. And over time, you can earn additional free time if you want.
That doesn’t mean you should ignore self-care, just that you need to be realistic and efficient. If you’re tired from a long commute and can’t exercise once you get home, try exercising near your workplace when you have the energy. If you’re tired of meal prepping, spend Sunday night prepping your meals for the week.
Finally, give perspective. If you have a job you love or a great opportunity to learn, focus on what’s great about that opportunity that others don’t have access to.
give them no self-respect
When I was little, my father taught me to take pride in everything I do. No matter what I do, from making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as a worker in a day camp kitchen (yes, I did that job) to now writing a best-selling book, I The name will remain there and I will accept to put my name on my name and work seriously.
Many young people are not proud of themselves or their work, which is both a personal art and a contribution to the world. The idea that you want to be a lazy girl perfectly symbolizes that you do not take pride in yourself and how you spend your time.
It doesn’t mean you have to kill yourself at work, but you have a privilege that has only been afforded to very few people throughout the world and throughout history. you can choose. how do you want to make a living And if you support yourself, you have a variety of options and can change them fairly easily and often throughout your life.

Whatever you do, be proud of the fact that you are giving your all and contributing to the self-fulfillment of others and yourself.
teach about diary
When I was growing up, young people who were having difficulties solved their problems in several ways. One was a diary, meant to vent grievances on paper, and was never intended for anyone to read. Or perhaps you sought advice through a phone call with a friend or a discussion with a sibling.
What we didn’t do was create a piece that we could share with the world and have millions of strangers comment on (like I’m doing here).
Personal growth can be a challenge at any age, but it’s even more difficult when you’re young. As a young person, it’s your personal struggle and you don’t need to broadcast it to the world (again, this your parents should have taught you).

Trying to use any aspect of your personal life to get clicks or other attention is not healthy and will do more harm than good.
In fact, it’s healthy to step away from your phone and learn to live in the moment in everything you do. Go out and just have fun. You don’t have to share what you’re doing. There’s no need to broadcast or view nature through your phone’s camera lens. Take time to be present and enjoy your own world without feeling the need to involve everyone or get their approval.
Mentorship for Gen Z
Mentorship helps Gen Z reach their potential. Even if your parents fail, the people around you will help you. Young people need to explore relationships with people they respect (in real life, not on TikTok or Instagram) and get feedback when they’re struggling.
