I’ve been thinking about Millennials and their penchant for relationships. Also, about how they are moving back to the city to be closers to friends and the amenities that cities offer. Unlike, boomers who thrive on independence, Millennials get energy from interacting with others.
The suburbs can be a lonely place. Neighbors work all day and escape behind closed garages and self-centeredness. How can we love our neighbor if we don’t know who the “heck” they are?
Perhaps, that is why we feel threatened by our neighbors…we don’t know them! We’ve closed our doors, hearts, and minds to those living closest to us.
Here’s to hoping Millennials will change the dynamics of neighborhoods with their thirst for relationships.
