Make Momma Proud

Sometimes I have random thoughts.
Realizations, if you will.

I was driving down the road and burst out laughing.
I was envisioning my group of friends, my generation as grown-ass adults.
As parents.

It was so funny.
I think we'll be the funniest generation of parents yet.

Like we're the result of the previous generation that grew up in the 60's and 70's.
They're all protective and "everyone wins" parents, you know?

But my generation?
I'm not so sure.

It's a bunch of self-absorbed asshole parents competing with their children.

Cause that's what we are.

We feel entitled to things we don't deserve.
Everyone is a "winner" even if you're a loser.
And that's the problem.
None of us have been told no.

Because our parents were told no and they didn't get to do all the things we do. They didn't have the opportunities we do.
So, in turn, they think they'll make up for that by letting us do everything we "set our mind to".
Which is anything and everything under this blazing sun.

I'm just curious how my generation is gonna grow up.

Are we still going to be the Self-Entitled, Lazy, Selfish, "Winners"?
Or will we go out and grab something for ourselves?

...We shall see.
