Humans of State High

“I miss the simplicity of it, of childhood. Just being able to be stupid and reading books that have no meaning. Just the really small things. Not having to put so much thought into everything. Especially in school. It’s what I remember the most. Now school is about college… ’m scared that I’m not going to find something that makes me happy. Because I can work as much as possible to be financially stable and I can check off all the boxes. But what if I get all those things and I’m still not happy? I have to balance having a stable life with being happy. The whole thing with checking off boxes, it just didn’t feel right for me. I seemed happy, I was in clubs, I did many things. I don’t know, I feel like I’ve always been the type to just suck it up: Appearing put together and appearing how people would want me to or like me to. But it comes to be ‘what’s the point?’ if people like you and you don’t like yourself?” (1/2)

“I have a very broad fear of social standards? Norms? It’s one of those things where not everyone cares, but people will judge you or hold these ideas of what you should be doing with your life and a timeline. Why care? There’s no reason behind it. There’s so much judgment. There’s no basis for it. Social judgment is the only thing driving some people, I’d change that about life.” (2/2)
