Born in 1982 I've grown up in the unique position of straddling 'Generation-X' and 'Generation-Y'. Also known as the 'Millennials' those who came of age in the latter half of the 1980s and then the 90s witnessed a sharp warp in the American social climate. Millennials have been left with mixed signals, raised on steady doses of self-esteem, rapid disintegration of traditional nuclear family roles and technologies designed to extend our social reach by decreasing the time we need to spend face to face with each other. What has been left is undeniable loneliness, struggle for identity and desperation to close the distance we've come to find normalcy in. It is now ever more increasingly evident to find how we are filling the void of meaningful human relationships in the 21st century, blindly forging ahead without consideration that we were never given the tools to understand what we actually need from each other.
