What's really sad about the generation today is that, young girls who have been into pre-marital sex are more hailed than the few who have managed to remain steadfast with their purity and being pristine after all the pressures in their surroundings. That is why parents should choose wisely where to expose their children. In the house and community and most especially in school where we all start to learn how to socialize and find out something on our own with the absence of our guardians. I have always mentioned how I'm saddened by the thought of how the multi-media have influenced the youth, you know, the negative side of it.
I feel like my soul is always assigned to different kinds of environment as I meet different kinds of people of different age, attitude and in different situation, I always try to just be myself. Observing people and their demeanor is one of the most interesting facts to do while we live. My latest encounter with a colleague who is about to reach 30 is one interesting experience. In his age, suffice it to say that he’s “too old” to be collaborating with his younger colleagues. He has a dark skin and can easily be recognized as older than all of us. He has two little girls and a wife. We usually expect people to have more wisdom and experience if they are older than us--and someone we should look up to. But to my disappointment, he would usually strike a conversation about how he treats his wife and his seemingly unconventional relationship with his kids. I think it's really pitty. I don’t wish to be judgmental and I usually try to maintain an open mind when dealing with different personalities. I just thought he'd show and brag about the right things a man or must I say a husband and father should, or am I just really clueless when it comes to that point of how guy-talks are going.
There’s another person I met only several months ago. He is part of the group of friends I was able to associate with most recently. He has the size as big as Jollibee, a stereotypical high-standard gangster (or is there any word to describe it?). It has been months that I have been with this kid thus I was able to recognize a type of behavior associated with teenage punks. I have found out and learned more about the facts of a stereotypical person from his person, and how he would perceive things, how he would act or respond and treat people according to what he sees. So unfortunately, I was astonished with what I recently found out about how he would rather stay out of jest to young ladies engaged in pre-marital sex than somebody who have managed to keep their vows and boundaries ahead of them. I have always believed in upholding my self esteem and self respect, and to be someone to be looked up to. But I would constantly hear a criticism; I call it discrimination from him about me being picky to men or guys. He would also unload some very unpleasant reactions about my belief as a woman. I am not the type who will easily cave in to his uncanny standpoint. Any woman with a weak principle would be pressured to accept hook, line and sinker what they brag about in order to be considered as “in” in the society at the expense of your dignity as a woman. I am not talking about people I know who have been into pre-marital sex or who have experienced unwanted pregnancy. I am referring to some isolated incidence. I know why some of these things are trending and happening.
Yes, I am a free-spirited, bubbly and predictable as you thought I am, but I am certain that there are beings like me you might encounter in your future journeys too. I want to emphasize that I am peculiar when it comes to issues about relationships. I hope we will all learn to respect each other because we all have different thoughts and have adopted different beliefs. Each individual we meet is unique but I must conclude that the stereotypical ones could be spotted as well. The rest of my thoughts that I could possibly share and explain are still unwritten. And if by chance that the guilty people would read this, I hope you'd learn to know someone further before you classify them.
However, I thank these people of a kind and God by placing me in such unique mission. Their perceptions gave my thoughts interest and made me want to learn more about mentality. And I hope one day, that things will end up according to their perspective.
