Something most of you don't know about teenagers is that we are so fucking complicated. Adults often forget how it was to be a teenager.
But even when they still remember being young, they do not understand our generation. Their teenage years were a long time ago, when the world was easier.
Elder people often complain about our "hopeless generation" and how we will destroy our world. But the funny thing is, they were thesame "hopeless generation" back in their days.
Our hopeless generation has a lot of problems. We are depressed, stressed out, broken, lonely. We are tied in the social net.
It has us and we are not even trying to escape it, simply because we like it. We like it to be prisoners of the system and social media.
We like it, because we are constantly trying to fill this loneliness, this empty space in our lives, with something that brings us joy and "friends".
But honestly, without social media and this "community" we will probably kill ourselves. Not because we are addicted to it, but because we would be so fucking lonely without it.
I have tried it, believe me when sati isn't fun to be lonely.
One day I have decided to stop texting my "friends" just to see if somebody would even check up on meow simply text me first. And I honestly didn't expect the results be that miserable.
Nobody texted me for a whole month. I didn't matter to anyone for 30 days, just because I wasn't "online". I have never felt that lonely in my entire life.
After that month I have understood how many dead plants I have been watering all this time. All those people, all those who I called my friends, were just fake.
Im not saying that they are bad people, no, they were awful friends to me, that's all.
This experiment has changed my life. I became more independent, more used to loneliness. I have even started to like it. But don't get me wrong, this "life changing" wasn't beautiful at all.
I have had anxiety and have been depressed, but eventually it was worth it. I became a better me. I have realised, that the only person I need - is me.
As my mother always says: "Whatever happens, happens for good"
