I feel like I am trapped inside a high school box sometimes. All the drama that we all despise in high school, all the senseless and stupid things we worried about still continue afterwards. And all I can think about that is WHY?! Why do we still get caught up in teenage drama, why do we care so much about other's accepting us, why do we feel the need to belittle others for our own personal gain? Sometimes, I feel like people never really get past their childish insecurities. Everyone says that they mature and grow as they get older, but how many people prove that wrong when they keep repeating the same stupid actions over and over?
To all the adults out there that still act like this, grow up. You are only being an example to your children, to our future generation, and guess what? The future generation isn't looking so great. At least not from the view I have. So, teach your kids some proper values and how to treat others with respect so that we don't keep breeding stupidity. Eventually, we're only going to have stupid left if we keep it up with this trend.
All I can say is be who you want to be and don't let others make you feel like shit for doing so. Be aware of others not because you base your self-worth off of their opinions but because you care about how you impact your surroundings and are smart enough to realize that your daily actions have consequences. Don't talk bad about others because you never know what they have gone through, are going through, or what they are capable of accomplishing in their life. Don't play games with people and disregard their feelings and don't let your insecurities rub off on others. Just because you are unhappy with you doesn't give you the right to take it out on others and to bring them down to your level.
I'll just leave you with the golden rule because it seems like a lot of people have forgotten it lately:
"Treat others how you want to be treated."
It's really simple and unfortunately some of us will never comprehend it.
