Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Please, don't do things for attention

Just ranting...
Romanticizing mental illnesses, anorexia, abusive relationships, seriously, what is up with that? Suicide is not beautiful, scars are not pretty, mental disorders really aren't that special, in fact, they are more of a hassle to maintain. Being a "weirdo" seems now is a way for the younger crowd to generate some sort of status, "I'm pretty, I think, but I am broken in the inside and therefore everyone should be trying to get to know me and my angst, state of t...he art behavior."
I always resented people who've accustomed their need for attention into a personality.

It's a dang lie, ya hear. I mean, I was going to be super talented and successful when I got older, you know because people who are talented in any way tend to have all these "negative" characteristics. though, I always hoped feeling depressed when I was younger meant I was going to be super talented and successful when I got older, you know because people play the part of being deep and complex, "woe is me" but are gifted and understand life.
I think, as a teenager, associating those feelings gives you a rush at times and feeling 'special'.
The reality is that when you just lay down on the floor and use your shoes you just took off as a pillow because nothing else seems worthwhile, it's hard to see the magic out of life?
