I have a 16 year old senior who has a family of his own, his wife gave birth like last 3 months ago tbh.
And all of these made me think that most teens nowadays consider vices as freedom from parents. Gotta say, when your parents give you the freedom to do anything, that's fun but that doesn't mean that you can do vices!
"Freedom is when you are given the chance to do anything that you find fun."
Permission to do anything is truly cool but when you abuse that freedom, it will become a heavy stone you have to carry. And you never know if this stone will only slow you down or it will break you.
THE AGE OF 16, 17 AND 18 AIN'T EASY, YOU LOSE YOUR FRIENDS, YOU MAKE MISTAKES, YOU FALL, YOU FAIL, YOU REALIZE THINGS, YOU HIT REALITY, YOU LOSE YOURSELF, YOU GO THROUGH DIFFERENT PHASES OF INSECURITY, LONELINESS AND FRUSTRATION, YOU GO THROUGH A HEARTBREAK, YOU LOSE TRUST TO THE PEOPLE YOU KNOW, YOU CRY NOW AND THEN, YOU DO THINGS YOU NEVER THOUGHT YOU DO BUT IN THE END YOU FIND YOURSELF AND YOU BECOME STRONGER AND THOSE ARE STILL THE BEST YEARS OF YOUR LIFE.
