if I offered you $20, would you take it?
How about if I crumpled it up?
Stepped on it?
you would probably take it even though it was crumpled and stepped on it. Do you know why?
Because it is still $20, and its worth has not changed.
The same goes for you; if you have a bad day, or if something bad happens to you, you are not worthless.
if someone crumples you up or steps on you, your worth does not change. You are still just as valuable as you were before.
Teacher: "Can you please tell the class why you're so late?"
Me: Someone told me to go to hell
Me: Couldn't find it at first
Me: But now I'm here
"Teenagers are irresponsible. Teenagers are too young to understand what the “real world” is like. Teenagers think carelessly and lack control and maturity. Oh you’re seventeen? Sorry, you’re unqualified to vote for the new leader of your country, but here take some college applications and here’s some study guides to the SAT test that’s mandatory to take and pass to get into a quality college. Oh your GPA is a 2.8? Yikes, you better prepare yourself for a bumpy future… How could an age group that’s looked so down upon in this society for being reckless and immature be expected to make the biggest decision of their life so soon? One day, we’re too young to go to a party with our friends but the next we’re filling out applications to our futures? Our minds are still indecisive and growing at this age, making a confident decision on what we want to do with the rest of our lives until we die is extremely stressful. Thats what a lot of adults seem to forget. There is so much pressure on the average teen these days it’s unreal. So much is expected from us, and if its not perfect, we’re told that we’ll never amount to anything. Sure, the school work is nothing compared to the average day in the real world and I understand that. But its just the fact that we take so much crap from adults about being too young to know anything, then are expected to make one of the biggest decisions of our lives at such a young age. Its not logical and its not fair. Nobody wants to drag themselves to a job they hate every single day because the school system forced us to choose a career in our teens."

My heart didn’t break into a thousand pieces after he left. Instead, I realized all the things he didn’t do. He didn’t want to hear my stories. He didn’t ask me questions. He didn’t smile when I was talking to him. He didn’t hug me out of the blue to make me feel good. His hugs were always a preamble to something else and after he was gone, I wondered if he ever knew me at all.
