Favorite Quote:
“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

i think the most difficult part about being a teenager is having every intention to be independent but an entire world stopping you from doing so. it’s being invalidated because you’re still just a kid and also creating expectations because you’re too old for that now. it’s responsibility and trust. it’s heavy mistakes and quick decisions, impulsiveness and indecisiveness. it’s confusing although everything makes just enough sense. each second flies by but the days pass so slow. most of all it’s contradicting, it’s a glass that’s both half empty and half full. it’s everything and nothing at the same time.
