Entry 2 : Love shouldn’t be biased
Relationships in high school have always been deemed to be having a negative aspect on the lives of students. Why is this so? Do relationships really put a strain on the lives of our students? Often times, the public seems to magnify the faults of teen couples by condemning their immaturity and their inability to rationalize as well as handle the responsibilities of being in a commuted relationship. However, when couples excel together and motivate each other to succeed, the public doesn’t give them credit or applaud their success. Why is this so? Is it truly wrong to be in love at a young age? The cold hard truth is that the public sometimes can be rather biased. They want teenagers to be responsible when it’s convenient to them and shun them back into being kids when they feel threatened. Teenagers are often labelled as the future of the nation and the core of the nation’s progress. We are always looked upon to be rational and to be well-rounders to live up to these expectations. Nevertheless, the public does not give us the same treatment when it comes to the subject of relationships. If we are deemed to be truly responsible and rational, we should be able to practice a healthy relationship without being carried away. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not advocating that all teenagers should be in a relationship. My point is that we should change our perception and not look down upon teens who are in relationships and advice them to be committed to their partners and not being carried away by being manipulated. We should teach them to be responsible and mature adults who are capable to sensibly pave their way through the hurdles that they may face in their relationships so that they learn and become responsible adults.
