Well I’ve not lived very long, 14 years to be precise. So I don’t know much. I haven’t been through enough to say, but I know for sure that high school has undoubtedly been more difficult than any other phase of my life thus far.
Losing friends happens to every ‘high schooler’ on the planet and the thing is it’s not just losing a friend by no communication or by just gradually growing distant. It’s always painful, it’s always ugly and it makes us sometimes feel like bad people, it’s not just friends we lose but a lot more. Sometimes I feel like the hardest part about losing someone who was once a friend is having to see them every day. Have you ever felt like that? It’s sad to say that in life, friends hurt me more than everyone else ever could.
In high school, do you ever feel like your being watched? And that you must do everything right? If you slip up once, everyone hates you and it’s never that big a deal, but everybody is against you, and all you did was slip up once. It’s almost hard to be human.
Assumptions are so very hard to deal with “I did not say that” I’ve had alot of people talk to me about that. It’s too much, and it happens all over the globe my message today is, we as people cannot listen to a third of a conversation and assume that we heard the whole thing. If your not sure what someone may or may not have said about you, ask … It’s not fair to make people feel inferior to you, to make them feel bad, you do not have to be mean, as a reader of my blog I want you to know that no matter who you are or what you’ve done you are a human being and all human beings deserve love, deserve to be treated like the beautiful people that they are.
Talk don’t yell, understand don’t jump to conclusions, ask don’t assume, love don’t hate.
My point is that many people who are in high school undergo the same things, same scenarios, even worse. But the sad truth is that your probably going to leave high school and have it bad in college, university and so on. I know you’ve heard that before and it is true but just because life is difficult all the time does not mean your problems now are not important.
In high school and just in life sometimes, people begin to hate you for reasons you will never understand or for something they believe is true, but not everyone will like you. We just need to accept that.
Don’t allow yourself to be blamed for something you know you did not do. Just dust off and keep walking.
Be brave little one.
It’s okay to feel bad, but don’t let it break you. Don’t let what other people say define or bother you, no matter how hard it is. It’s only for a little while. Focus on being the best version of yourself you can be, focus on what’s important to you and what makes you happy, focus on what is working out for you, focus on the few people that care about you. And remember to love regardless of what anyone does to you. You do get what you give back.
It is fine to walk away. Its ok to leave poisonous people, you are allowed to say no without explaining why. You can quit something if you dont really love it you are allowed to start over with someone new you are allowed to fail and try again.
And it’s alright to not be friends with someone ok? Do not keep someone you think is toxic. It’s hard but all the better choices are hard. Make like Elsa and let it go if it’s bad for you. You do not have to feel bad about it.
So how about we all just show some love, peace unity and R.E.S.P.E.C.T. (You know the Aretha Franklin song?!)
The hoodie I’m wearing is from Dashiki Pride. It is beautiful and comfortable just enough to make you stand out.
