Synchronize To The Stereotype? (Hell NO!)

Mon, Sep 26, 2011 at 12:24 PM By: Maiden of Malice

People fascinate me, they truly do. You have the children: refusing to listen, willing to compromise (well, most of the time), eager to gain knowledge, and constantly giving you reasons to look at things differently and think, "Why DOESN'T this matter?", and you will find more often than not that they teach you more than you could teach them. Children think, they listen, they believe. Why can't the older generations?
And then you have the typical teenager: seemingly bipolar, hormonal, constantly looking for ways to fit in AND be unique and 'colorful'. They find someone they think they will be with forever, only to realize, "Hey....I don't give a shit about the person I'm with..." and so they move onto the next victim. Meanwhile, the poor guy or girl sits back and thinks, "What did I do wrong?", or "What's wrong with me?". They're put through trial after trial, until eventually, they believe that they are unworthy of even trying any more. And with this, the adolescent becomes an adult...
Now, define adult. Physically bigger? More emotionally stable? Intellectually decided? Financially and/or romantically set? Pick your poison, honey, because I personally think that it's all bullshit. You are not what people say you are: you are who you believe you can be. Set your goal, make sure it's what YOU want and what YOU need. The future you live for can only be seen through your eyes, and the air you breathe is what fills YOUR lungs. If there's no air, how do you breathe? If there's no color or personal definition to life, why be here? The end is always the same for all of us, but how we get there is unique. Do not live to die, die to live. Inspiration, motivation, determination...the sickness is spreading....

"If it all amounts to nothing, why, then, am I standing in this line..."

    O well you are welcome no problem my schedule change at work has made it interesting to have time for much commenting here but tryin to get here more. Yea sex drugs n rock n roll lol ahh those were the days. Some people grow up some dont n some hold onto such things as drugs like a blanket crippling their potential to be who they wanna or coild be n its sad. Not to judge anyone at all coz we all get thru our day however we can but some should let things go bein clean has much potential most dont realize or care to try lol. But yea there lots people are missing character wise even before the newer generation even in my own generation to be honest but all in all it balances out mostly n thats what makes the world go around. Peace Maiden may ya grow even wiser.

    Haha! Thank you so much! I'm so glad to know that there are actually people out there like you who agree with me and the way I see things. My generation is falling apart and I think that it's about time to straighten them up, wouldn't you say? All people care about anymore is sex, drugs, and crappy music. Anyway, if you'd like to talk more about the insanity of people today, here I am! (Thanks for reading and commenting, it made my day.) :)

    Hey Maiden very very true n im totally shockd u posted this on Monday n n not a soul has commented Really!!! Figures. I too am phisophical n analistic so totally get n agreed what ya sayin. The ones who suppose to be grown act like children. As children we are born insitful n intuned n most people grow out of it n ignore the natural way we are n become ignorant instead of smarter. Great n impressing for a young mind not many are so together anymore. Teach the ignorant is hard to do lol
