“Society killed the teenager.” Sadly, society nowadays has killed a lot of teenagers, because of weight issues, bullying, looks etc. Some people judge each other for being the same but when someone changes they still judge them! WHY?! Why do people do this, do they benefit anything out of this, gain any friends? What’s the point? The people in our generation don’t help either, they shaped this society to the way it is, which is really annoying.
People are so judgemental, they pick on the little things and make them a whole lot worse. This sometimes results into bullying, check out my blog on bullying: https://natalayacooke.wordpress.com/2014/02/15/bullying/. There is always that group of people who will never stop judging people and they’ll always get a kick out of this, it’ll seem so hard to stop them, but what goes around comes around. You don’t have to worry, the people or person judging you is probably jealous of you and they might be insecure about themselves, so you don’t have to worry about the people.
The media is also another reason of the society today, television, magazines, advertisements etc. All these pretty faces, slim bodies, “no make up”, flawless skin and hair, there’s too much to list! Mostly girls are ruled by these things and think they don’t amount to anything, but you do! You’re beautiful, just the way you are and you don’t need change ANYTHING about yourself, if anyone wants you to change anything about yourself, say… No, I may not be perfect but this is the best you’ll ever get, so you either take it or leave it! It might seem a little diva like but who cares they should know that and they might realise something. Some girls think they need to change their appearance or personality for a boy, so that he will go out with her. There is no need for this, if he can’t appreciate you for who you are then he is not worth it.
Older generations would probably associate our generation with drugs, crimes, underage pregnancies and more. Which I think is wrong because some of us are actually normal, we might be obsessed with Tumblr, Instagram, Youtube, food, sleep but wouldn’t you rather that than a grandchild when you’re in your 40s? Teenagers have really changed in the last 20 years, we get judged for this and some people think that all teens wear hoodies, trousers half down our bum, smoking but not all of us are like this so why is everyone else judged like this? Not all of us are bad like this and adults have got to understand this.
Lots of different things have influenced the society which has changed a lot of teens around the world, how they see things, their looks, friendships everything about them. Something so little can result to something so big and can have a HUGE impact on other people. Think about what you say because you don’t know how it might affect someone else.
