"You have this one life. How do you wanna spend it? Apologizing? Regretting? Questioning? Hating yourself? Dieting? Running after people who don’t see you? Be brave. Believe in yourself. Do what feels good. Take risks. You have this one life. Make yourself proud."
SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT
So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time? Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.
I will never not reblog this
"…but teenagers have no reason to be stressed."
i get anxious for people who fall asleep on public transit. like where is your home? how many stops have you missed? this was not a time for a nap
You know what I hate?
That every time I have to buy a bathing suit or lingerie, I cry. Society has literally drilled this image of what everyone is supposed to look like naked, in a bra, in a bathing suit. And now that image is tattooed in my mind. I can’t get past the clothes and look at myself for who I really am. And it fucking infuriates me. One day we are going to be scared about what we look like in a garbage bag.
That’s how fucked up society and advertising is.
