Overheard a conversation by a young girl on the phone (she maybe 23ish), sounded like a long lost good friend of her was on the other side. The conversation did make me roll my eyes with a sigh. I dont want to judge but it did sound too stupid for me. It included her decision to change her light skin into darker and keep the dark skin because her ex boy friend preferred dark skin girl; that she spent so much for beauty treatment yet the relationship was an epic fail.
Sometimes ago, i attended a small seminar about life motivation. And the young participants asked some questions which the answers were just too plain on the sight if only they would also consider the existence of courage.
Back then, at their age, would i know it all? would i know what i want to do with my life? being who i am, being brave, do what is good for my self, etc? I know what i know now is simply because i have passed those phase of not knowing then i learned. Back then, at their age, i probably did stupid things, getting tan to impress the guy i had crush on; being in such a drama of not taking one job because i wont have time for traveling; driving the scooter for an hour at night just to see the other guy i have a crush on. Back then, at their age, i was lost and stupid too.
So, i tell to my self, when i am around younger people asking me such a simple questions,”patient! be kind! they are young!”
