It shouldn’t take for you to have a child or for something hard to happen for you to realize what life is. People take things for granted, thinking it’s funny to not be the Adult you need to be until things get hard. Being an Adult comes with responsibilities like going to work, taking care of your family, doing what you gotta do to survive. What you do on a daily to enjoy life, do that on the weekend. You don’t know who looks up to you and what they are thinking.
Half of these children want to be like the next or those around them. I can’t fathom the thought of others already down talking us because of who we are, and we’re giving them a reason to talk. Our children today need their families, need that love, without that love, I feel like it’s a hurting towards who they’re meant to be. See some say “F*** their dad/mom,” because they weren’t always around, but don’t do that to your next generation. If that’s the case, y’all need to start using condoms, which you should be doing anyway, just nasty.
Being an Adult comes with a lot more than you realize especially when you’re doing it on your own. You learn better independency though, I’ll tell you that much. Learning how to budget, what pill comes first, and how you gonna get to the next place, on top of your work, SHEESH! It is a lot, and yes you only live once, BUT let’s set a good example for our children.
