#5: Jack of All Trades
I can’t help but feel a little bit jealous of people who lived in the particular time period that Boomers have. I know that nostalgia and wishful thinking play all sorts of tricks on us, but it really does seem like people in that age group are just more capable.
Of course it comes at the detriment of other things, like mental health and awareness around it. However, I’m not sure that I wouldn’t trade my five years of therapy for the ability to independently unclog a toilet, change a tire on my car, or build basic machinery like toasters and TVs.
