Do you ever take a step back from your life and wonder if you’re just doing it wrong? It’s easy to feel that way when you compare yourself to your parents. Surely, many of us deal with these feelings. However, we can’t compare the life we lead to the life our parents have lived.
There is indeed a huge difference in culture, technology, thoughts, and ideas among us. It’s also not unusual to hear stories of your parents getting married at the age of 20 or even younger. Not just that, their whole lifestyle is also significantly different compared to ours today.
Under those circumstances, new memes completely excel at utilizing this theme, and the results are our favorite kind of self-deprecating humor. The memes basically compare what our parents were doing (making commitments, investing in the future) with what we’re doing at that age. In fact, the punchline is that nowadays, we’re doing shit that’s way less mature.
Below you can check out a series of hilarious photos that perfectly sum up the main differences between what we are thriving for today vs. the times when our parents were our age.
A big thanks to modernization, the parenting culture has been edited, and life is now diverse other than just going to school and getting married early. Overall, this is a sign that time flies, and even as we speak, it evolves. Enjoy scrolling!
