Let’s talk about relationships. I’m going to refer back to my short excerpt “People are Like Flowers”. Humans are like flowers. We grow and go through different phases. In relationships, we go through phases as we age.

Elementary school:

“Ewww, boys have cooties.”

Middle school:

“I like you.”

High school:

“I hope we stay together forever.”


“I love you.”

This used to be the common phases we went through, but now it has changed. There are children in elementary dating. You have kids in middle school saying they love each other and then they break up the next day. High schoolers who go through about 10 relationships in 1 year. What ever happened to true love? People want to grow up so fast nowadays. There are 13 year olds having sex and looking more and more grown each day. And all this growing up, makes you want to do it yourself. You feel like in order to fit in you have to do what everyone else is doing. But, you don’t have to. Just take things at whichever pace you feel comfortable with. If you dont, you may end up doing something you regret. Just do you, not what everyone else is doing.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
