25 Things Millennials Used To Tolerate But Now Find Unbearable
If there’s one thing that reduces with age it’s tolerance. When we came onto this earth, we had such high ideals influenced by the likes of MJ thinking, we’re going to save the planet etc.
However, with time, our values and our principles have changed significantly. One Reddit thread asked folks born between 1980 and 2000 to mention what they discovered they liked less as they grew older. Netizens did not disappoint, revealing a host of interesting answers from which we’ve shared the most relatable in the gallery below.
#1 Social media sites like Instagram and Facebook. I used to check them and post often, now I rarely get on my profiles.
#2 Getting drunk. Having my Saturday or Sunday gone is a miserable existence.
#3 People. I hate other people. We’re so selfish and annoying.
#4 Bending down to pick stuff up.

#5 Music with lyrics. I’ve grown intensely fond of orchestral music, and the bands I was so fond of as a teenager have just become trite and boring now
#7 The news. I’m getting older and I have a daughter now, I just can’t handle all the doom and gloom. It hurts my heart.

#8 glorifying “the grind.”
#9 My body and my choices in life
Artificially flavored and colored foods and drinks. I’ve been bartending for my entire adult life, and I used to make a lot of fresh fruit syrups and tinctures. But after a while it got frustrating because all my customers seemed to *prefer* the fake pucker flavors over my fresh ones. Never made any sense to me. It’s gotten really weird to see people in my bar taste-testing different hard seltzers we get in. I always joke when people ask for recommendations on them that “this one’s artificially flavored strawberry, and this one’s artificially flavored watermelon, and this one’s artificially flavored cucumber”. But nobody else ever seems to care that it’s all fake c**p.
#11 Staying out late. I’m good with the occasional night out, but more often than not these days I’m happy to be in my pajamas and on the couch by 7:30.
#12 Society and it’s lack of compassion and empathy for others…and the fact that everything has to be made into a joke of some fashion, as if things can’t be taken seriously. Yeah, I don’t like that.
#13 Facebook, it’s gotten old. Even the memes aren’t really funny anymore. It’s the same boring, repeated self centered jokes about mental health issues, dumb reels, people vying for attention, it’s just annoying at this point lol
I used to love mental health memes but they’ve just gotten stale I guess? It’s almost like so many people just make mental illness their personality and try too hard to be edgy, and it gets old
