So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time? Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.
I was at Walgreens buying my brother a birthday card. An elderly woman was also in the aisle. She said “can you believe they have wedding cards for two men and look even two women!”
But she then said “I’ve seen so many changes in my 80 years, it’s wonderful how things are moving forward.”
[internal tears of joy]
She then mentioned that she didn’t know any gay people but that everyone should be treated like they would want to be treated. I smiled and said “you know one now” and pointed at myself. She smiled, patted my shoulder and said “now I do”.
At the start of the year I made a post about how i wanted to lose weight to start a wrestling school. I’m here today, still with no gym expereance, but 33.2 pounds lighter. I’m still gross looking. I’m getting a ton of hate for posting this pic on my accounts. But I don’t care. This is NOT the final product. The harsh criticism is like a teacher reviewing a stimudents rough draft to me. It hurts, but I don’t let it effect me because I KNOW that this is only going to improve over time. Unfollow if you must. I wont miss you. I’m proud of my progress so far with no gym or equipment.
