In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Silver Screen.”
but we think and act like they do. we pretend that we’re owed the best of other people when we treat them like complete crap, like their sole purpose in life is to make you happy and not get in your way. it’s a sickening feeling to remember that you’re only the protagonist in your own life and that the world doesn’t revolve around you, but necessary for growth at the same time. i complain all the time about my friends who treat others based on social status, but i do it too. again and again, and it’s a horrible thing to realize. but what if you have to be thick-skinned to make it through school, jobs and ultimately life itself? wouldn’t you just be pretending, just for the sake of not getting hurt? it’s an easy thing to write but when i’m put on the spot i usually make a decision i regret instantly. but i know that if i did the right thing i’d still get flack. a girl can never win.
