Oh teenagers. She’ll realize when she’s older not to blame outside influences for the changes happening in her own body. When I was younger, I had a legitimate mental disorder (still do!), abusive parents, and massive anxiety. What I know now is that even with all that, I, like other teens, was a hugely unnecessary drama llama. The world will not end if he doesn’t love you. I know that now. Back then, not so much.
But hey, young ones, I’m only 24. Understand that “accepting that most of [you] will be unemployed”, is not only defeatist, it’s a different type of entitlement. “Don’t expect me to look for a job, there are none. Look at the world you left me.” Baby boomers did fuck up the world quite a bit. But no other time in history have humans lived so long and so globally. None of us knows what we’re doing, and we will all leave bodies behind us when we get old. I’m an adult and I’m in the same generation as you. I have a job, I have a life, and I saw 9/11 broadcast into my elementary school. No matter what happens, the human mind can and will endure. Rise above the past.
