I read a great article on why the younger generation do not buy cars & apartments anymore & found it #TooGoodNotToShare

#WhyOwnWhenYouCanRent?

#SharedEconomy

Nowadays,the traditional measure of success-owning an apartment & or a car-is getting out of date
An increasing number of young people around the world don’t want to buy them.

#Research shows that the so-called #MillennialGeneration, who are now 30-35 years old, rarely buy houses and even more rarely — cars. In fact, they don’t buy super expensive things at all.
In the USA, people under the age of 35 are called ’the generation of renters.’

Why does this happen?

Some sociologists say the current generation of young people differs from their parents’ generation. They have other values.

1/ I would like to share my story of my #mentalillness (Bipolar Disorder II) and how I deal with it, to show that mental illness is everywhere, and that someone can have a mental illness and be successful. I hope this story can empower someone and help reduce the stigma.
2/ I am a successful PhD student in Chemistry. I am happy, I have travelled the world, I have lived abroad for a year, I am a varsity Squash athlete, I have a BSc in Biochemistry and a MSc in Chemistry. But my biggest success: doing all this while managing a mental illness.
3/ A few weeks ago, I woke up and it took me over an hour to get out of bed. After a day of achieving little at work, I went straight home. I did not feel like my usual after-work walk, I did not want to play squash, I did not want to read a book. I had no energy.

1/ We launched the first version of Schoolze in 2015. Last 3 years has been a journey of highs & lows but our discovery of #SchoolSuccess factors has been fascinating. Here is how we did it -
2/ Schoolze started as a classroom productivity tool and a year later, we built a school product to measure parental engagement. While at it, we discovered a major shift taking place in K12. To understand this shift, let's revisit some historical K12 facts.
3/ Our current K12 model dates back to the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century. Influenced by conformity, compliance & obedience, it sought people who could take instructions and get a specific job done without being disruptive. #YouYourChildandSchool

I read a short #InspiringStory and found it #TooGoodNotToShare...

A famous writer was in his study room. He picked up his pen and started writing :

✖️Last year, I had a surgery and my gall bladder was removed. I had to stay stuck to the bed due to this surgery for a long time
✖️The same year I became 60 years & had to give up my favourite job.I had spent 30 years of my life in this publishing company.

✖️The same year I experienced the sorrow of the death of my father.
✖️And in the same year my son failed in his medical exam because he had a car accident. He had to stay in bed at hospital with the cast on for several days. The destruction of car was another loss.

At the end he wrote:
✖️✖️Alas! It was such bad year !!

Every day next few days I'll share one #depression/#anxiety insight from my own experience. If it helps anyone a wee bit, it'll be worth it.
1. "#Happiness" can scare #anxiety patients. In our heads, things are always going wrong. Fear of a "happy" moment undone is doubly painful.
Sorry, this won't be a daily affair as I had earlier imagined. But here's insight #2 based on my brush with #depression/#anxiety.
