The Global Times quoted a 23 year-old graduate named Xiaoyue, who identified as a Zen-generation member, as saying her attitude to life "is a bit different from pessimism.”
She added: "I feel it tiring to compete with others or strive, for whatever it may be in life. We just don't have big ambitions; we don't want to be number one. We are happy with an average life, and we are optimistic.”
Xiaoyue - Position - Favour - Life - Service
Xiaoyue said she turned down a well-paid position in favour of an easier life in the civil service, and stayed single to avoid "troublesome" relationships, according to the paper.
