Well a couple blog writings have been posted by others on “what advice they would give if they had a child” well that is all and good but what about advice you would give to a child or teen for that matter who isn’t of your blood or body? Well that is what got me thinking about what advice I would give a young person who I might or might not be related to.
So here goes my take on the matter at hand…
Your folks might not understand you anymore then you understand them, but regardless they are your folks so put up with them for better or worse of it you only get one set of parents (bio parents).
Brother’s and or Sister’s can be a pain yes, but if you didn’t have them you would miss them.
No siblings? well can’t miss what you never had but yes you can always wonder what it would be like to have a sibling that your friends keep talking about, best that you can do is enjoy their tails and be thankful that its not you.
Waiting for marriage to have sex is neither right nor wrong – its your personal choice on the matter. But having sex just because you wont to keep the person in your life, or because you feel pressured to have sex with that person is not a good reason to have sex.
Get that education, high school might not appeal to you but the world if full of those who are high school drop outs, get that education – go to college and/or university you won’t regret getting the higher education in the long run.
There is no need to hop from one relationship to another, be happy with yourself. Be an independent person, it will help you grow as a person.
Marriage isn’t everything – don’t settle for someone who you can’t imagine waking up beside every morning for the next 50 plus years.
Good friends are hard to come by, but when you find one its a lifetime deal so cherries every moment you have.
A child will not solve anything in your life, it will not love you more then any one else, it will not fill that little part of you that you feel needs filling.
A child is not for everyone, because not everyone should be a parent, think long and hard before making the choice to bring a new life into this world. Remember there are many children already born who need a good and loving home.
Your worth is not determined by who it is you are in a relationship with, but by your inner self.
No one deserves to be treated as second class anything so try to treat others as you’d like them to treat you.
Look to the future, remember your past but live for today because tomorrow is in the future and hasn’t yet come.
There is nothing wrong with not following the crowd – being an individual isn’t a bad thing by any means, but being able to work as part of a team can be an asset.
Enjoy life, you get what everyone gets, you get a lifetime.
