My Child your future is doomed if you have chosen to submit to every wrong attitude your friend or peer believes is right.
Once you accept everything your peer interprets as trendy, without running them through the values you were taught at home. to separate the wheat from the chaff, then your future is doomed. Avoid falling victim to the weakness that your peer sees as youthful strength and pride .
If you see and believe that weakness your peer believe as youthful strength and pride, then your future is doomed because you can’t build a foundation on a defective structure. Your peer doesn’t have the experience, the wisdom and the knowledge to tell the difference between what works and what doesn’t. Your peer hasn’t been there before but I, other parents and your teachers have seen it all and are better placed to guide you away from the wrong path.
What others have is not yours. And there is no way they would allow you to turn their home to your foot-stool, so go ahead and get yours by building it from the scratch. The time to begin is now. You can’t begin to build an empire by looking up to those who don’t know how to dig a foundation. You look up to role models who have built empires and cities, for help and direction. Your peer is still struggling to find their rhythm in life. So in most cases, they wouldn’t know how to guide you aright.
Now know this that once you accept a trend that creates wave today and is gone tomorrow, your future is doomed. You know why?
