What’s often talked about is Gen Z anxiety. What’s not talked about enough is their resilience. Yes, the pandemic and racial injustice are defining moments for Gen Z, but thanks to the chaotic times Zs grew up in, they’ve built “emotional antibodies” that help them maintain their resilience. Zs are rightly called the “anxious generation,” but they should also be called the “resilient generation.”
Back in February, we found in a Nat Rep Survey of Zs age 13-24:
84% describe their generation as “anxious”
83% describe their generation as “resilient”
This article is a great explainer of the life of Zs so far, their #anxiety, AND their resilience.
