So I had an interesting thought as I woke up this morning about a subject I'm sure most women have pondered over the course of their lives: motherhood. Why are there so many stigmas placed on motherhood? It seems like everyone and our moms want us to get married at the earliest possible moment and every other conversation we have with dad is centered around what we can do to make our husbands happy, never giving that sort of advice to our brothers (if we have any) on how to please their wives when it doesn't involve sex. When people who don't know you aren't asking intrusive questions about why you haven't settled down yet, they're making conjectures on why you should despite whatever level of turmoil it may cause in your life.
I know by now that many of you reading this have probably already seen a million posts talking about how to “survive high school”: be nice, make friends, and don’t follow the crowd, all that jazz.
As a recent graduate reflecting on my experiences throughout high school I can say that it is good to consider the aforementioned points, but there is no definite way to ensure that high school will be the best conflict/boy-drama/friend-drama/general-drama free four years of your life, as there are many experiences after high school, and you shouldn't look for a checklist of things to do that are based on other people's experiences. However, I do want to throw out some general ideas that I think you should meditate on as you enter or finish your high school experience.
