Imagine a library filled with every book in the world, none of them have titles on the cover and the pages are blank, but when you open one you are instantly transported to the world within the book. You get to live the story as any character for as long as you like. And when you come out of the story, almost no time has past in the real world
You need to stop waiting for your phone to vibrate. You need to stop waiting for your phone to ring. You need to stop staring at the screen waiting for his name to pop up. You need to stop visiting his Facebook page. You need to stop looking at his pictures. You need to stop showing that you care. You need to stop thinking about him. ’Cause he’s not doing any of those things for you.
You’re all I think about, you’re all I wanna talk to. I constantly check my phone hoping that I got a text from you. You’re the first person I wanna talk to when I wake up in the morning and you’re the last person I’d want to end every night talking with.
12-year-old girl:I don't want kids when I grow up.
Society:You'll change your mind when you get older. You're only 12. You're too young to know what you want.
16-year-old girl:I'm pregnant.
Society:How could you be so stupid? Do you know anything about safe sex? You should be ashamed.
20-year-old woman:I'm a single mother with an infant son.
Society:You should've gone to college first. You need a stable career before you can support a child.
33-year-old woman:I'm married and my spouse and I both have stable careers. I have two young daughters now.
Society:You're not staying home? Who's going to take care of them? You're just going to put them in day care while you work? That's selfish of you. You can't expect to raise decent kids with a full-time job.
45-year-old woman:I just had my first child.
Society:Why would you have a child when you're that old? Do you realize the health risks of being pregnant at your age? When your kid is a teenager you'll be a senior citizen. That's inconsiderate of you.
60-year-old woman:I haven't had any children.
Society:Your life must be so unfulfilling. Is there something wrong with you? Why didn't you want kids? How strange.
