Finding something out about someone that completely changes your whole perception of them. Someone you’ve known for ages and would trust completely… how do you deal with something like that? Especially when they’ve not only hurt you but someone else who’s close to you. Why is it when things start to look like they’re getting better, life goes and slaps you back into reality…
What do you think of when you think “employment discrimination?” The major civil rights victories of the 1960s are characteristically thought of as racial battles. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was seen largely as a victory for Americans of color. The Act was preceded in 1963 by the Equal Pay Act, which sought to guarantee equal pay for women. Both laws include broad, sweeping reform in terms of race, gender, nationality and religion.
“When life gives you lemons make lemonade” heard it again today, but i still don’t understand its meaning; maybe i will in time, still what is life without a few hiccups. Today i was pasted on advice to use for my future, to start saving now for the future that i have to plan for now. Why now though? Why can’t i just live in the moment of today, the here and now; isn’t that more important than what’s going to happen tomorrow or in a years time or even 20 years time?
And if that isn’t enough you get told to enjoy life to the fullest because you never know what will happen tomorrow and to enjoy your time as a teenager because it’s time you’ll never get back and the best time you’ll ever have. But how can you enjoy a time in your life that could single handedly be the most stressful time of your life. Education at high school and college, Friends leaving you and returning, Families falling apart and coming together, having a crush that you do nothing about and wonder why it never flourishes, having your heart broken repeatedly and having that first love feeling over and over again….
Teenage years the best time you’ll ever have and yet we have to waste this time in planning for our futures. How do you balance that with everthing else?
