I have a sore throat and my mother plans to cure me with tea. I can’t drink it though because it’s burning my tongue. I really want to give up on drinking it, but I have to master the fine art of drinking tea. Drinking tea is my duty as both a resident of a British colony, and a citizen of an Asian country. I have to get this right. This is so important to me, guys.
EDIT: in the process of writing this, my tea has cooled enough for me to drink. *insert British expletive of delight here*
Patience isn’t just the ability to wait. Patient people understand time and how it relates to them. They understand what they like spending time on, and what they think is a waste of their time. Most importantly, patient people understand that there is more to life than what they personally look forward to. Patient people are ready to change their plans to accommodate other people’s needs. Basically, patience is knowing when and how to share your time with other people.
Sometimes, I wonder how interesting my life story will be. I wonder how well I’m going to be able to tell my story. And I wonder if there will be anyone there to listen. It’s probably not that big of a deal, but if I can’t get anyone to pay attention to me now, I can’t see it happening in the future.
I’m getting more and more concerned with my appearance. I probably should have gotten used to how I look by now, but it feels like the longer I spend “improving” myself, the greater the pressure I have to make myself more appealing. It feels like I’m losing my chance to enjoy life because only attractive people can enjoy all life has to offer. I want to tell myself that I shouldn’t be handicapped by aesthetics, but that’s not really for me to decide.
Adolescent Egocentrism governs the way that adolescents think about social matters and is the heightened self-consciousness in them as they are which is reflected in their sense of personal uniqueness and invincibility.
Adolescent egocentrism can be dissected into two types of social thinking, imaginary audience that involves attention getting behavior, and personal fable which involves an adolescent’s sense of personal uniqueness and invincibility.
