"Youth Is wasted on the young"
“Screw you, jealous bastard”
Throughout my youth, I can say that I’ve loved, I’ve lied, I’ve hurt, I’ve lost, I’ve won, I’ve trusted, I’ve made mistakes, but most of all, I’ve learnt.
I honestly don’t see the future as something we should worry about. Just live our lives to the fullest and deal with it one day at a time. Leave the worrying to our parents, because after all, they do it the best. =)
Many a times, the society labels the youths as “rebels”. But then again, youth or not, aren’t we all?
The real question to ask is Are we SMARTER rebels? Because I think we are. The new generation is made up of a generation of innovators so it’s a no brainer that we’re going to be even ‘better’ rebels that the generation before. Not that I’m saying that rebelling is a good thing, hey, don’t take me wrong, but it’s a matter of fact that as time goes on, the nation will rise to be better than the previous generation.
To say that I’ve never rebelled would be pure bs. I mean honestly, who has never rebelled? A good example would be when I had a few drinks and went pass curfew. After getting home, I had myself hand phone-less and internet-less (no thanks to ideas on parenting books). The next day I sneaked out and got caught again. In the end let’s just say that I had to face the music and it wasn’t my definition of fun- in fact, it was the opposite. But I learnt my lesson, and I guess I can submit to authority more easier now (not that I’m miss goody-two-shoes either)
Have you ever came across a situation where either one of your parents would go
This is usually followed by a long and VERY detailed story about how extremely hard their lives were or how they had to suffer to get money or how they had to endure so much hardship to get to where they were. Come to think of it, our parents are such drama queens!
Anyway, here’s something our parents don’t know. If our lives now were the same as theirs when they were youth, we’d be in shit holes, because it would mean that the country hasn’t progressed much. (Making sense aren’t I?)
The whole statement about how our parents had much harder/easier lives than us doesn’t make sense to me. Why? Take this for example:
They didn’t have 300,000 children fighting in other’s wars.
There weren’t 250 abortions happening every 5 minutes.
But then again,
Our parents didn’t have computers, the internet and phones
Not all of them were allowed to go to school, or get any type of proper education
Gender and skin color discrimination was still widely happening.
So in my opinion, both us and our parents had the same amount of struggles growing up- just in different ways.
And that's all i really have so far.So thanks for reading. And stay tuned for more.
