Lighten up. Seriously. You’re not even adults yet. Life gets better, but it’s not going to happen if you sit on Tumblr all day reblogging ‘deep’ images that describe your ‘feelings’.
And don’t even think of giving me the ‘But you don’t know what I’m going through’ crap. I doubt that even half of you have it as bad as you think you do. Jesus Christ, look around you. You’re alive, you have your health, friends and family, you are rich enough to have a functioning computer so you’re not living in poverty… Life is not that bad. Seriously. So what if you had a bad day at school? Tomorrow is another day and it will be better, but only if you allow it to be.
So what if you’re single? You’ll find someone eventually. But you’re not going to find someone by reblogging an image that says you fee abandoned. By who, for God’s sake? Maybe you should try and talk to your parents, instead of complaining on the internet that they just don’t understand. How could they? You never talk to them! All you ever do is sit in front of that screen feeling sorry for yourself!
Who cares if you don’t look like a supermodel or an actor? You can sit around all day moping about the fact that you don’t feel as pretty as they are, but the thing is, that’s not going to change. You’re still going to be you. Try loving yourself for who you are. Instead of gawking at pictures of famous people, take pictures with your friends when you’re having fun. Those are way cooler to look at, anyway. And in a couple of years you’ll see that the awkward kid has made way for a confident adult.
You wonder why nothing interesting ever happens to you? It’s because stuff happens to people who go out and do things, alone or with friends. Instead of talking to each other on the internet, meet up and have a couple of drinks. See each other, face to face, that’s when you get to know your friends. And don’t tell me that your only friends live miles away and the only way you can talk to them is on-line. That’s bullshit. There’s plenty of people willing to hang out, and they’re just a phone call away. Go have some adventures, damn it!
And I bet school sucks. Sure it does, it’s school, it’s supposed to. But you’re going to wish you were back there when you finally get that diploma. You’re going to realize that those were some of the best days in your life. Just don’t be that typical emo kid you see in every God damned teen movie. Life is not like that. Life is not movies. Instead of hiding in the back of the class because no one gets you anyway, try hanging out with classmates, because here’s the secret: you’re all insecure little kids, hoping to find a couple of people who will accept them. As soon as you realize that, maybe those other kids aren’t as different as you think. Think about it…you all hate school, you all have shitty parents, you’re all part of the next misunderstood generation. The least you can do is team up and have a good time together.
Because seriously, life doesn’t suck as bad as you think, or maybe even hope it does. You just need to open your eyes and focus on the good parts. Otherwise, you are going to die old and lonely. And you’ll have no one to thank for it but yourself. Live, for God’s sake.
Just live as much as you can, as fast as you can, and as hard as you can.
