There seems to be a direct link to millennial’s social life, happiness, depression and loneliness associated with living at home being clothed, fed and given an allowance from parents.
Not being employed, not living in your own house or apartment, not paying your own way leads millennial’s to social isolation, depression and loneliness.
Market research firm YouGov said “Social media-savvy millennial’s may make up the loneliest generation in America.”
A poll of 1,254 adults aged 18 and older found that 27 percent of millennial’s have no close friends, 25 percent have no “acquaintances” and 22 percent have no buddies at all.
A third(33 percent) of the 20 and 30 somethings reported feeling lonely often or always, compared with 20 percent of Gen Xers and 15 percent of boomers.
49 percent of millennial’s said they had one to four “close friends” and 70 percent said they had at least one “best friend.” Although, based on the other stats, that best friend is possibly their only friend.
The high rate of loneliness in young people may be because many find it tough to find companions: According to the survey, a third of Americans feel making friends is difficult. For 53 percent, it’s because they’re shy, 27 percent claim it’s because they don’t ” need friends.”
Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology links social media usage with a lower quality of life. “the bottom line: Using less social media than you normally use social media leads to significant decreases in both depression and loneliness.
Hint: Get a job, get a pet I recommend a dog or cat, get your own house or apartment. Get a hobby, gardening is rewarding, takes up little of your time and gets you out of the house. Limit time using social media sites.
