I get frustrated with some of the teen age students… and some teens in my family as well… I try to get them to understand….
That we only deserve what we earn and we earn what we get.
If you rape a girl ( or guy), you earned the title of rapist and you deserve it.
If you slack off in school, you earned the failing grades, and you deserve it.
I get so … angry… yes, screaming mad…. when teen agers act like the adult world owes them everything on a silver platter, and then act like the adults should wipe the drool from their chins too. UGH!
I know that the concept of earning, and deserving can be hard for teens to swallow, but dang it all to you know where… I work hard for every material possession I have, I work hard for all of the intellectual possesions I have (knowledge) and I work extra hard for all of the relationships that I have and am involved in. NO ONE owes me anything. I earn what I deserve and I deserve what I have earned.
If you cause drama, you earn the title of Drama queen, and guess what?, you deserve it.
If you are a freakin slob, you earn the filth and you deserve it… do not expect some one else to clean it up.
Even some adults never quite get it, we only get what we deserve and nothing more. Sometimes we do get less, but never more than we deserve.
