I’m not the only one thinking about this.

I just read a brilliant guest-post by Fraylie Nord over at Eat the Damn Cake, and want to share it. Here’s a taste:

The problem with my generation is that we are hellbent on defining ourselves within a society that puts great emphasis on success but cannot provide the political or economic context for a stable career path.

Fraylie also talks about how our current selves might confuse or disappoint our past selves, which is something that a lot of un- or under-employed grads are probably feeling right about now. Read the whole thing here.

  1. Maybe we should look at our lives in the way other people’s past selves might look at them. For example, my past self always wanted to work for a coffee shop and no one would hire him. Thus, your current self has already wildly succeeded beyond my past self. Since other people’s lives are always more better than our own, rather than looking at what we do as failing to live up to our own dreams and aspirations, think of it as achieving someone else’s. I think if we all stopped and thought about things this way there would be a lot less to worry about.
