STUDY: Average Millennial is Insecure and Feels “Inadequate” 130 Times Per Year

A new study has troubling results for self esteem among the millennial generation.

The study found 8 in 10 millennials feel they are not “good enough” compared to peers and older generations.

The study also found, the average millennial feels inadequate nearly 130 times per year.

For the social media generation, constant pressure to make enough money, exercise and finish daily chores have left many of Gen Y feeling insecure and sleep deprived.

Per StudyFinds, a new survey consisting of 2,000 millennials (ages 22-38) has revealed some troubling statistics regarding how young adults see themselves in comparison to both their peers and older generations. An astounding eight in 10 flat out believe they are not “good enough” in virtually all areas of their lives.

Furthermore, three quarters of the survey’s respondents admit that they constantly feel “overwhelmed” by pressure to succeed in their careers, find a meaningful romantic relationship, and meet others’ expectations.

Another seven in 10 millennials say that daily chores like going to the gym regularly, maintaining a presence on social media, and making enough money are among the top reasons why they feel overwhelmed from time to time. In all, 80% of respondents even say these worries have negatively impacted their sleep and 79% admit that their overall mental health has suffered.

The survey, commissioned by plant-based food producer Alpro, found that the average millennial feels inadequate roughly 130 times per year.
