Gen-X, my people, I still think we are in the scapegoat / identified patient role.
Meanwhile, their needs or even existence may be ignored or pushed into background.
The other system members either start facing their own pain or double down on dysfunction/denial.
So I don't want to hear ANY more about how Gen-X did nothing or were slackers or "passive."
That's exactly what the devaluing of emotional work looks like in a dysfunctional system.
FOH with that "Gen-X was passive" BS.
