Stuck in the Middle

This place sucks.

These people are dumb.

I’m going nowhere fast.

When I was a teen, I’d hear adults tell me that I should enjoy my youth and that high school could be the best time of my life.

My innate feeling was that they were delusional. All these years later, I know that my instincts were right. Even if someone thinks that’s true, it’s almost cruel to tell that to a kid.

What I wanted to hear was just a little truth.

Maybe something like, “don’t peak too soon” or “nobody has the answers.”

If I had only heard someone say, “we’re all struggling” things would have been a lot easier.
