If I could go back I would not work from the ages of 14-18. The most carefree time of my life, spent slaving away in a store for pennies. Now I’m on the brink of graduating univeristy and the monotony of school/work life already has me depressed.
I’m 21 and already crushed by the system. My mental health is deteriorating and I have no social life. If I could have forseen my future back when I was 14, I would have spent time actually enjoying life.
This is a cautionary tale to teens who read this. Do not work unless it is an absolute necessity. Life gets real, real soon.
