I made a political cartoon for English class about issues in school
It focuses on how teens are expected to make career defining choices with barely any experience, and also how parents often take so much authority that their child’s decision is not actually their own
If this gets some notes then I’ll make a colored version
thank fucking you. this defines me a few years ago really accurately
story time! At college some of us were talking about tattoos we want. Our teacher said “you don’t want to get a tattoo at eighteen because you might change your mind.” I said “I had to decide my entire career path when I was fourteen when I chose my GCSEs. I think I can decide on a bird on my wrist at eighteen.”
Yes, it hurts now, but remember that you’ll laugh again; that rainbows appear when storms have passed, and that our joy comes in the morning… Maybe you just need to rest, and let your heart heal. When you have cried all that you can cry, and your tears have dried, you’ll feel a stillness to it all; then you’ll get up and make yourself a cup of tea, and the sun will shine on you as you close your eyes. Learn to breathe in deeply, then feel the beat of your heart, and know that you are not really broken; that one day you too can know what it means to love without loss.
