I wonder if a lot of people share the same perspective I do when viewing the world. This “thing” we’ve created called Society, is so deranged and fucked up these days, that people believe it has “killed the teenager.” But think about that statement. When a child grows up through the ages of 13 to 19..hell even 21, they’re still a fucking teenager.
Our world is so deranged and fucked up because our Society (created by us), or WE, have merely changed the mold of what it is to be a “teenager.” It seems that certain, ridiculous standards must be met in order for individuals to just feel like they belong. You must sport a certain look, act in a specific sort of fashion, and love certain people…all while encountering and overcoming the obstacles of sex, drugs, and an all-time high level of peer pressure….in an attempt to gain what?
Happiness. And as the years go by, the pedestal upon which Happiness sits, rises further and further out of our reach…not just for teenagers, but everyone!
We all want it. But unfortunately, not everyone is going to win the fight for it.
But I’m definitely up for a challenge.
Survival of the fittest, motherfuckers.
