Best Days of our lives ?

we have all  heard on the news about the suicides of Homosexual teens in North America and the “It gets better” Anti bullying movement. I recently saw a video created by the Vancouver Mens Chorus and in it a few of the experiences some people had at high school.
it got me to thinking about my high school experience. i was never bullied at high school for any reason. what i remember most of all is how many people told me ” you will look back and realize that school days are the best days of your life ” well i am about half way through my life and i am still not looking back in agreement.

let me get this straight i was never bullied , picked on or any thing else, i did kind of enjoy my time at high school but i have never looked back on it and thought how wonderful it was in fact quite the opposite the the more i live my life i realize what a horrible experience high school actually is. in yourself you feel that you are an adult but you have no rights as an adult , you rely on your parents for nearly everything from what time you have to be home to you income form your allowance .you are never really in control of your life because at anytime you could have to cancel all your plans because you are grounded . So for me although i did enjoy High school at the time i would never want to repeat it , go back or even look at it as “the best days of my life” in fact life only seems to get better the older i get.

in conclusion adults telling kids “these are the best years of your life” to kids that are already having a hard time and feeling lost can only send them over the edge .

It Gets Better!
