Most of you will probably agree that millennials continue to boom for the past few years and there is no way to suppress their presence especially on social media.
That’s why we usually see them as this outspoken generation who are not afraid to voice out their woes to the society. Be it on politics, environment, showbiz — everyone surely has a say on these things but the millennials are most likely the ones to fire up and ignite the conversation.
In fact, Filipino Film Director Marlon Rivera takes this behavior as something that can turn them into better version of themselves.
He even wrote an inspiring message on Facebook where he shared some observations and useful tips that can help millennials.
“Own the snowflake! Be offended when you see wrong then activate your inner Elsa to demolish outdated systems and build your own. DIY it! Bash with a purpose… Call it indignation. Big word but you’re already ahead in that game,” Rivera said.
“I observed you have more empathy for minorities and you’re also more likely to speak out and up for those groups. Collab on things that matter to you, and with just a bit of effort extend that to what matters to others. Don’t worry, no need to work 40 hours a week, you think fast naman and thrive on flex time,” he added.
The director also noted that having an interdisciplinary mindset can aid millenials and Gen Z’s to decentralize the government while they pursue some other passion.
“I’m sure you’ll find a way to decentralize even the government thru chat groups while you’re pursuing some other passion. Unfortunately, passion and work will not be one and the same for most people. Live with it. You can do all of that because you like to do all sorts of THAT sabay sabay. Look into interdisciplinary mindset, I think you will love it. You’ll be more adaptive because you have more lenses to view the world,” he said.
But more importantly, in the last part of his message, Rivera told the young generation to “think of the bigger side to solve the ills of the world” and take care of their mind, take care of each other, and take the lesson from the lockdown that “we are all connected”.
Rivera is one of the Philippines’ most respected directors and is noted for his acclaimed works such as “Ang Babae sa Septic Tank”, “Ang Huling Henya”, and “My Little Bossings” among others.
