I think it’s really fucked up how so many teenagers are alone and sad and having panic attacks in their room while their parents watch TV, and how a lot of those teenagers have had relatively normal childhoods, yet there’s this huge boom of depression and mental disorders, and its just dumb how we’ve turned into a generation labeled ‘reckless’ but really, we’re only reckless with ourselves
This is one of the best posts I’ve ever read
Yesterday in my intro art class we had to draw someone who inspires us, so today, I drew PJ Ligouri because I think he’s an amazing film maker/youtuber and he inspired me to be a film maker myself. Later today, my mom asked me who I drew & I told her I drew a a guy who makes videos (PJ). She gave me a confusing look, & I told her she doesn’t know who he is. She then said to me, “That’s who your drew? Do you know what inspiration is? That’s not inspiration. You probably don’t even know what Inspiration is, what it means.” I just sat there quietly wanting to cry so much, because she has no idea that I want to be a film maker and he IS my INSPIRATION. I just can’t believe my lovely mom said that to me. I was gonna draw my brother, but I thought of my future career. Something I truly want to accomplish in life.
