I'm 18 and I'm still young.

A Story by Rassoul
"

to the young people, be strong.

"
I'm such a young soul, a young soul who has to take a lot of mature decisions at a young age. I have to take decisions about my current and my future life, like school, you've to choose what to study and depends on it you'll have your future job. You're not even sure if your decisions is wrong or right, you just have to decide because your decision will shape your entire future life. Isn't it weird? A person's mature life depends on an Eighteen years old kid's decision, word up.

They tell you what is wrong and what is right, they tell you what to eat, where to sit and what you should do about a lot of things when you're young, and one year later, when you're 'mature' enough as they say, you take your own decisions, wrong or right? who cares, as long as the results will only mess you up.

You've to choose the love of your life, the one who is going to live more than twenty years with you, the one who's going to share every moment with you and you've to decide if this person is right or wrong for you, your call.

You'll get into some relationships, real love or fake one you just have to go through it, you'll have a lot of heartbreaks, it is a normal thing for a teen but you're still young for all this pain. Pain changes people.

I'm eighteen, I'm still going through a lot of stuff to have more experience about everything, so when I take a decision, I hope it's right. I'm eighteen and I'm still young.

You are still young and that's what life is about, making mistakes, chasing hearts that aren't meant for you, feeling pain you didn't know was even a feeling, all this makes you a unique character to the world

life is about making choices, doesn't matter right or wrong, it's about living fully.
you can fix mistakes and you learn from them, you grow .
forget what say and listen to you heart and inner self it will lead the way.
you always surprise me with your writings.

I think you've done a great job of showing us the scramble of worries in a young person's head. Even tho I have learned all these worries are not necessary, when you're 18, it's very real. I remember choosing my college studies -- I picked something I hate (engineering), but when I went to work later on, I ended up becoming a technical writer, which I very much love. So even if you do make a mistake, life has a way of leading you to the right outcome anyway. You'll learn to be less hard on yourself for making mistakes. I never learned anything when life was easy. Your writing is nicely honest & straightforward & full of relatable feelings. I reviewed something else of yours this morning & I laughed when you wrote that it had been created a long time ago (18 months!) Now that I know you're 18, I can understand why 18 months feels like a long time! (((HUGS)))

Yep, you pretty much pointed out the flaws in society.

So true. You can't buy cigarettes but you can join the army or school your entire future careers layout.

We really have a fucked up way about society.

Our future is entirely shaped by our decisions and our character. We have to choose a lot of things, stick to them, and we have to learn that we will mess up in the process. Being young is the most powerful burden because you're oblivious to the future that you spend years preparing for. Exceptional writing.

القصة رائعه جدا و لكن لديك أخطاء في القواعد. أتمنى أن تصححها حتى لا تفقد القصه رونقها. مع ذلك القصة تبدي افكار المراهقين جميعا و هي حقا مؤلمة.

so well written :) decisions are the major part of life and when you're young and 18 as you say , decisions are the life that one is going to deal with. This piece is something every teenager has to give a look. thank you and cheers.
