I suspect there are a lot of factors at play in the results of this study, – disastrous job prospects and coddling by parents among them – but I find it troubling and quite sad. This generation of 18-to-29 year olds doesn’t think of themselves as adults.
That’s not what a new nationally representative survey of 1,029 people ages 18-29 suggests. Almost 60% say “adulthood will be more enjoyable than my life is now.”
More than half (56%) say they often feel anxious; 33% often feel depressed; 65% say “this time of my life is full of uncertainty.” Yet 82% say “it still seems like anything is possible.”
