“THEY WERE JUST TEENAGERS” idk man I was a crazy, stupid, reckless, and unstable teenager but not once did I ever get the urge to kidnap, drug, and rape someone
So what you’re saying is, not all teenagers kidnap, drug and rape? What an outlandish and preposterous idea! Are you really trying to reassure everyone, that you are not like that?! That is a cowardly thing to do and also shows the great lengths you will go to in order to avoid examining your role in a toxic system. *end sarcasm*
Does anyone else see the logical fallacy here? #notallmen
"The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation.
For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you."
