I don’t know who writes “wait but why”, but they’re spot-on with this:
With a smoother, more positive life experience than that of their own parents, Lucy’s parents raised Lucy with a sense of optimism and unbounded possibility. And they weren’t alone. Baby Boomers all around the country and world told their Gen Y kids that they could be whatever they wanted to be, instilling the special protagonist identity deep within their psyches.
This rings true, even the uncomfortable parts. It’s harsh, but more in a tough-love way than a judgmental way. Well worth the quick read.
