Sometimes people try to fit in with whatever is “in” so that they could be fit in. And sometimes while doing that they lose who they are. So at the end of the day if you try to be something you’re not will just end up losing yourself slowly.
I really liked this because I do not want to look end up being nothing at the end of the day. I would to be something I am proud of, even if others don’t think it’s worth their breath. I want to be able to be on the death-bed and say I lived the life I want to live and I have no regrets.
“You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.”
Sometimes I feel like I’m living in a nervous life. I get so nervous to do little things. Talking to new people scare me. I feel like I’m just going to embarrass myself and melt into a puddle of embarrassment. And this quote is talking about just do the things that make you scared and nervous, that gives you butterflies on you stomach cause after a few seconds you see that’s probably not that bad. And if it is you get to say you did it.
“Nobody ever listens to a teenager. Everybody thinks you should be happy just because you’re young. They don’t see the wars that we fight every single day. And one day, my war will end. And I won’t die. And I will not tolerate abuse from anyone. I am strong.” – Freedom Writers
I feel like a lot of teens relate to this. A lot of people don’t really listen to teenagers because they feel like teens should be having the time of their life cause they don’t have a lot of things to worry about. But people don’t understand that there is so much pressure put on us, at school and home. Teens are also so considered young adults but I don’t think some people consider that teens sometime just need someone to listen to their problems, to listen to what they are going through cause some people feel like it’s not a big deal, that it will just pass. They are probably right that it will pass and it isn’t a big deal but to just be able to let it out is nice. People don’t really let teens speak and when they do they see that we do have something to say, that we have gone through things and we are fighting our own battles. We’re teenagers we don’t know the road ahead of us, I don’t think anyone does but us teens are learning how to get through life and learning where do we want to take our life.
