“There are two kinds of evil people in this world: People who do evil things, and people who see evil things being done and don’t try to stop it.”
Thank you to Janis Ian for inspiring my #millennial musings of the day:
My millennial friends, if you see someone being treated unfairly – stand the eff up. Ask how you can lend support [lending an ear over coffee, doing some research or coming up with an action plan]. Don’t sit idly by as you watch someone take advantage of a person who does not deserve to be abused.
I hate to get all Taylor Swift on you, but this PSA is particularly geared to my lady readers. There are a lot of people out there [both men and women] who see young women as meek and incapable … so they end up being straight-up mean to millennial ladies. Let’s stand together, folks. Let’s compete less with each other, and let’s focus on becoming the best versions of ourselves – while helping our peers do the same. [Unless, said peer did something super egregious. In that case, wish the best for that hot mess troll, go no contact and move on with your life. Ain’t nobody got time for pettiness.]
