This is an old article. But when I came across it, I found it very thoughtful and interesting. So I would like to share with you.

I've had countless conversations with friends born in the 80s and 90s about pressure from parents to live a certain life path that is beyond irrelevant today. I don't envy them at all, especially since the tolerance for non-conformity is as low as it is.

There were so many good points in the article, I highly recommend it.

What's your thoughts? I would like to hear some.

Really interesting article.

I quite often end up discussing how the difference between my own life and my parents is relatively small, and how western countries have actually changed very little in decades.

The difference between the lives of my Chinese friends and those of their parents is huge, even the difference between when they we 4 or 5 years old and now is staggering.
