My sister gets to go on an overnight trip with her friend and her friends family. Shes allowed to no problem and shes 14.
Here I am, almost 20 years old, and I dont even have the same privileges as a fucking grade 9. If I asked anything similar (and I have asked, believe me, even as recently as a month ago) its an immediate no. What the fuck…
has made me lose confidence in my abilities more than anything else. That needs to end this year
My parents have always worked very hard for what they need and its something I’ve always admired about them. But as I got older and actually noticed how miserable they could become sometimes, I realized that they were so miserable because all they did was work hard, and never really do anything. I told myself I didn’t want to be like them.
But now I can see the process has already begun. I see many other people my age going out, having fun, going on vacation, and just living life in general. I work as hard as they do, possibly harder if you consider I dont exactly take time out of work to go have that fun. But I don’t get these same rewards. I work until I break, for money that I don’t spend, for the dreams of trips that I will probably never take, all the while just growing to hate everyone with privilege.
I’m 19 and have already become a slave to the workforce, how depressing is that, where exactly did I miss the lessons on how to have fun
