Helo everybody, I've been noticing something for years,
Why it has gotten me at wits end now is because i am 17 years old now . and what it is is not living in the moment, or in other words, enjoying our youth like we are meant to be
It's hard to enjoy and live in it when you are being told to grow up, to act or certain way or youll fail -or anything similar. Maybe there are some instances where we have to and that is fine smilies/icon_smile.gif but remember who we are , we are young and it's so vital to enjoy youth, i'm sure many of you know this. Also remember the time you spend with people because life is so fragile :/

there is this story called the little prince..

The little prince was from this asteroid and it was tiny. It had 2 little volcanos and a rose which the little prince loved and cherished and thought its kind was the only in the universe. The little prince then left and came upon this planet called Earth. He was disturbed to see that there were thousands of roses and came to thought that his rose wasn't as special as he thought she was,as now there were thousands maybe millions in existance. He continued his journey and met a fox who he asked to play with. The fox said, "I am not tamed" ..."What does that mean--tame?" The little prince asked. "It is an act too often neglected," said the fox. It means to establish ties."
"Just that," said the fox. "To me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you, I am nothing more than a fox like a hu ndred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world..."

"I am beginning to understand," said the little prince. "There is a flower... I think that she has tamed me..."
But if you tame me, it will be as if the sun came to shine on my life . I shall know the sound of a step that will be different from all the others. Other steps send me hurrying back underneath the ground. Yours will call me, like music, out of my burrow. And then look: you see the grain-fields down yonder? I do not eat bread. Wheat is of no use to me. The wheat fields have nothing to say to me. And that is sad. But you have hair that is the colour of gold. Think how wonderful that will be when you have tamed me! The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you. And I shall love to listen to the wind in the wheat..."
And then the little prince went away to look at the thousands of other roses when he realized that his rose was precious because the rose was his..and thats all that mattered...
many times friendships arnt mutual symbiosis's, they are chaotic.
When i was little i had an idea of what i wanted in my teens life,which was fairly simple, just a small close group of friends ,like family, w'e'd live in the moment, but ideas can be easily crushed. Now i'm 17 and i wish i was 12 again because the people i chose to be around didnt have the best intentions. Those are years i will never get back. I think everyone comes in this world an inately loving creature, dont let anyone try to do otherwise. I came into this world inately loving, i'll spend my life loving, and ill die loving. Time is so precious...lets live in this moment and pretend like we own it : )
