This world is hard

We all know what life was like when we were growing up. It has been different for everyone of us. We all had good times and bad. I feel though however that this generation coming up is having it the worst, well worse than I personally did, and I didn’t have it great. I got myself into some trouble as a teenager/young adult, not as much as I should of.
The world now scares the hell out of me. I can not believe how open the world is about drugs. How easy people can find it these days, they don’t even have to try, before we had to seek them out so you had to want them, now its so popular that people don’t have to want them to have them offered. I am sad for the kids these days they are going to have an uphill battle to stay away from that crap. Now that marijuana is becoming legal(ugh) there are new and scarier drugs taking its place. People who do drugs to do something dangerous and “cool”, which is far from cool, will not want a legal drug, are you kidding me? Drug dealers and pushers have to find a new product to sell to kids. I am very livid, I personally know that these struggles are hard to overcome and I thank God everyday that I did overcome them. I just pray that the generation with all of our kids will be able to too. I am asking God why is it so easy, why are you challenging our kids to be stronger, or are you challenging the parents of these misguided kids?
There is so much social media these days there are hardly any secrets between anyone, the kids who do not want to talk to their parents but they will tell the whole world some things. I am grateful for that, for it can save someone from themselves in a dark time if that is their only place to vent and have real emotion. I remember when I was a troubled kid I kept a journal not that it was many years ago but there was no facebook or twitter or instagram or tumbler or….. wordpress…. to divulge all of our personal information, I had to do what everyone else at that time and before had to do, we had to stuff it down. So, I am grateful for the outlet for others and myself, once I get this out then maybe I’ll be able to sleep. On the other hand I am having a hard time trying to keep up with all these outlets, and I know by the time that my own kids are old enough for this kind of stupid mess I will have a few more to keep up with.
Thanks for letting me share…
