"I'm usually wrestling with these feelings for the entire day," Yu said.
Working at an international pharmaceutical firm, Yu looks older than she is and her heavily made-up face always has an exhausted look.
"Since I have been promoted to a managerial position, I lose my temper with my parents and husband more frequently just because of some trivial things," she said, adding that slight wrinkles and acne on her face have irritated her even more, and even luxury cosmetics cannot help her.
"I have to work six days a week and don't even have extra off time when I'm sick," she said. "I have to push myself to become a workaholic since the competition in my company is really fierce and I also have to pay a 5,000 yuan monthly mortgage, besides saving a certain amount of money for my planned baby."
Life is like riding on a rollercoaster for Yu and many other members of China's post-80s generation, the first generation born after the introduction of the family-planning policy and the group to benefit most from the country's opening-up policy and its booming economy.
Being the only child in their family, and without much to trouble them during their youth, most of them were taken good care of or even spoiled by their parents and grandparents.
Having such a relatively carefree youth - when this generation reached adulthood and had to cope with soaring prices, the high cost of raising children and intense competition in the workplace - they suffered a rude awakening.
According to statistics, the population of China's post-80s generation is over 200 million. The media usually refers to them as "slaves" to property, credit cards, children and marriage.
According to the "White Book on the Health Condition of China`s Urban White-Collar Workers", 76 percent of white-collar workers in China`s major cities are in worse than average health, with nearly 60 percent being over-fatigued.
The survey showed that nearly 80 percent of white-collar workers in China suffer from irregular sleep and diets and feel tired every day. In addition, more than half feel irritable, 20 percent feel lonely, and more than 70 percent are unhappy.
Members of the post-80s generation, who generally have a good educational background and also have profound insights into many issues,should be confident about their future because of their talent and potential.They shouldn`t underestimate their own capabilities and constantly bemoan their fate. Meanwhile, employers can take some measures to help relieve the pressure on their staff, but what`s more important is that employees themselves should learn how to manage their emotions and deal with stress.
80后普遍有着良好的教育背景，对很多事情都具有深刻的洞察力;对于自己的未来，他们应当自信才对，因为他们拥有智慧和潜能. 他们不应低估自身能力，也不要自怨自艾，哀叹命运. 雇主们可以采取一些措施来帮助职员排解压力, 但更为重要的是员工们要学会控制情绪，对抗压力。
