The Bullied Baby Boomer

Pet bully policy?

Pet bully policy?


No finer whine comes from any other generation.

At the same time, no age group has shouldered more burden.

Society pushed baby boomers, continues to push boomer.

The message is often conflicted.

Seek your bliss, but be responsible.

Grow up, but feed your inner child.

Let your hair down, but get it cut first.

Change the world, just leave me alone.

Be a difference maker that fits in.

Express yourself, just do it quietly.

Try new things, but respect old ways.

Live long and be happy as long as you’re not ruining it for the rest of us.

Do meaningful work as long as you’re not keeping others out of the job market.

In a world of stress, anxiety, and expectation, Boomers get the load.

If there’s a problem, it’s Boomer’s fault, or will be.

We’ve been hearing the same song forever. Too many, too selfish, too free, too smart, too long.

Since the vanguard Boomers started retiring at the rate of 10,000 a day according to experts, America is bracing for a tsunami of aimless geezers wallowing in social entitlement programs.

That’s bully talk. What’s happening instead is a careful review of how to age better than anyone ever has.

Does that sound good to you? If not, give it a few years.
