People are always complaining about something or other. A certain level of complaining is acceptable, shit, it’s human. We all do it. But sooner or later, we should realise something - and the sooner we realise it, the better: complaining isn’t going to get you far.
If you’re frustrated with getting bad grades, work harder, get a tutor, ask your teachers for advice, go to the library. You’re not dumb - just lazy. You might not get it the first time, or the second time, but eventually you will understand. You just have to be willing to work harder than everybody else. Some of the things you’re forced to learn at school might seem useless but later in life you find out it’s not really about what you were learning, but how you were learning.
School develops analytical skills which are crucial for surviving in the real world (I’m only speaking for the British education system here, I’m sure it’s a little different for other countries. e.g. I know that the Hong Kong school system has a strong emphasis on repetition and memory, it’s gruelling but they become smart bastards over there!) School is where you learn to build relationships with your peers, interact with adults and become disciplined. Sometimes it sucks but if you learn to play the game, then you can beat it. The only way to have the upper hand is to equip yourself with a superior level of skill - do what you have to do to do what you want to do.
If you want to be fitter, stop sitting at home on the Internet looking at pictures of people who are fitter than you and bitching. Go for a run, get a gym membership, take the stairs, walk even though you can drive. Quit stuffing your face with pizza every day and eat some fucking vegetables.
Instead of pining after someone for ages, just fucking tell them you like them. Maybe they’ve been crushing on you too and was just waiting for you to make a move. Make a move before someone else does. The worst that can happen is rejection and you wouldn’t have ended up together anyway cause the only interaction you had was Facebook stalking. If you’re always complaining about being alone, you’re probably alone because you don’t shut your gob about it which is a major turn off. And don’t be the wanker who forgets he has friends after you get a girlfriend. They’ll probably still be there long after she’s gone.
Stop bitching about your friends behind their backs. Bloody hell, if you hate them that much then you should find some new people to hang out with. But take a look at yourself first. Put down your ego, your pride, your dignity and fix your relationships.
Feeling sorry for yourself? Go do some volunteering work instead of wasting time sitting around having a pity party. Need extra cash? Get a part time job. Watch less tv, read a fucking book, persevere, let go of your petty grudges and bad habits. Getting high every weekend isn’t making you any smarter. Sleeping late and drinking too much coffee isn’t going to make you live any longer. Get it together, goddamnit. You can only stay out for so many nights drinking til dawn before it takes a toll on your body (and your wallet). You think alcoholism is cool? No, it’s fucking stupid. Alcohol is supposed to be enjoyed, not thrown up all over the street and your bathroom.
If everybody changed themselves, the world would automatically be a better place. That’s probably not going to happen because most of us are selfish twats. If you’re unhappy about the way your government is running things, vote. Speak up, mobilise your friends to do the same, and make informed choices. Go into politics. Be part of the crowd that has the power to change shit. Reblogging political posts on Tumblr might be funny, but pretty much useless.
“Change what you cannot accept > accept what you cannot change.”
There are a lot of things you can change, and some you can’t. YOU are in control of your actions. “Dreams don’t work unless you do”, right? It’s all well and good to want something but how badly do you want it? Are you willing to work for it? Because most of the time life doesn’t just hand you what you want on a silver platter. Sometimes shit happens. Life deals you a shit hand. You won’t be the first or the last person to be in a shitty situation through no fault of your own. Deal with it. Sometimes we’re in a situation because we put ourselves there. Most likely, we can do something about getting ourselves out of that situation. You’re probably not an idiot - so stop acting like one.
Okay, rant over.
I’m pretty nice most of the time but sometimes this fuckery pisses me off. I’m writing this because I probably had heard all the clichés before and ignored them. I wish someone had grabbed me by the shoulders years ago and told me this, maybe even yelled it at me, so I would take notice. I wish it didn’t take standing in a doctor’s office thinking I was going to die to wake up and get it together.
When you’re young, you think you’re gonna live forever; you think you’re invincible and nothing can touch you, but that’s not true. I wish I could chase back the years I lost, but time is the greatest thief. How much precious time are you wasting? Stop fucking dilly dallying.
So yeah, you can do this, if you really want to. Mind over matter.
Sorry about the swearing. This was only supposed to be two paragraphs long but apparently this shit gets me worked up.
