I am a young adult. There are some stereotypes that I have of people my age. And since I am a young adult I am entitled to my rights about stereotyping people in my age bracket ( that sentence could be a stereotype of young adults).

1. We do not honor those who are much much older than us. Most of the time we tend to think that because people are old, that they are out dated and non relevant to society. Funny how young adults tend to forget that they have everything they do because of those who came before us. Dishonoring those who are older than you  seems to get worse with each passing generation.

I believe that we should stop thinking that older generations have nothing to offer, but we need to begin to see the what older people have to offer. Since history repeats itself it might not be a bad idea to look at what they have to offer: Values, foresight, and wisdom.

2. Young adults complain/question too much. Now let me clarify… I love to question everything, but there comes a point that we question because if we didn’t we would have nothing to say! Somethings in life do not need to be analyzed and criticized.  We don’t have to question everything in order to fit in or look smart. Somewhere between the ages of 18 and 30 you truly form your own opinions and know where you stand on a lot of issues. Issues that range in anything from politics to parenting. Let me encourage you to figure out where you stand… and stand for it!

We need to stop complaining about how everything is too_________ (you fill in the blank). If you don’t like something, take a stand and change what you feel is sooo wrong.
