Being a young person nowadays is filled with difficulties. While some things may be easier than the previous generation there are many greater challenges for them.
Decisions about Careers
One of the most important things in the life of a young person is to make a decision about what career they want to pursue. The biggest difficulty, in a lot of respects, is the fact that they are so young and that such decisions will affect their life so much. Furthermore, what they choose to study may also influence these career choices and people can make mistakes by choosing areas of study that are not right for them.
Once they feel they have addressed the career problem there is a question of trying to find somewhere to live. As many people are aware the cost of living in urban centres has increased, enormously. This can make it difficult for younger groups to find suitable accommodation, often due to a lack of disposable income. They may even be forced to remain longer in the family home than they want. This, in turn, has an effect on the plans that they have for their lives, like developing their career or perhaps starting a family.
Which problem is most challenging?
Accommodation is perhaps the more difficult one to deal with, in the sense that a young person has no control over that cost. Even with career decisions there is enough personal input to feel that it is your own choice. This is not the case with accommodation and it perhaps is one the most key challenges to all young people today.
