“School teaches kids irrelevant things, but not how to deal with real life.”
No. Through life we learn from hardships, from pain, from all the stress school brings upon us, we learn what we can and what we can’t take. We learn how it feels to be unwanted, unloved, stupid and useless. We then look at the happy people and think, how did you reach that point? Where did you turn where I didn’t? And they tell us and we learn.
School should have some important lessons, where they guide. It sounds weird yes, but life isn’t an easy road, and school doesn’t make it easier. So instead we find learning from other places, and that can well, be okay, we learn by ourselves. We grow strong with our own help.
Still a little push out the door with a packed luggage, wouldn’t be bad.
