People often say that millennials are afraid of commitment; that we expect too much from life and can never be truly satisfied because we are constantly looking to align our idealised version of the world with a reality that is far too flawed and complicated to fit in with our vision.
I do not agree with this viewpoint because, as a unique individual, I resent being categorised a generalised representative of my entire generation.
That being said, I am actually absolutely terrified of commitment.
If anything, my refusal to identify as a typical millennial is probably because the idea of committing to the label of typical millennial is too much for my millennial brain to handle.
However, in some ways, I’m happy that I was born in millennial times because I don’t think I would have coped very well in the age of chivalry.
