Can’t We All Just Get Along?

18 12 2008


starryI was a teenage girl once. I hated it. I feel for teenagers. Sometimes I believe they have it harder than some of us…Except those that interact with them on a daily, hourly, nano-second basis. I feel for us too. But I wouldn’t wish to “re-do” that part of my life for a gazillion dollars. I wouldn’t wish that period of time upon my worst enemy. Why? Because teenage girls are vicious. Don’t get me wrong, I believe there are some very good-hearted teenage girls out there. But I also believe that there is a viciousness in every person, and it’s simply more predominant in teenage girls. I wish I could somehow infuse my knowledge to some of the girls I interact with on a daily basis. I wish I could get them to see what’s worth spending their time and energy on and what is a waste of their precious spirit. They are delicate creatures, these teenage girls. They are a curious, precocious bunch. I love them, but I wouldn’t want to be them. My heart goes out to them and I wish them nothing but the best. I only hope they know…..
