By the age of 13, the reality of life deepens. Adults are unable to adequately explain the horror of the world to #teenagers because they themselves are in denial of the #humancondition.
But for teenagers, who can see it all clearly, the wrongness of adult behavior is a mystery.
From their point of view, adults have been fake and fraudulent and don't even admit that there is a very real and serious problem with human behavior.
Why is everyone so #unhappy and preoccupied?
Why are people so fake?
Why do people kill each other?
Why do parents fight so much?
Why are we going to a party when people are starving?
There's a huge issue in life that nobody is talking about, and teenagers have had to discover for themselves why it was so necessary to ignore it. They've had to work out why adults find the human condition such an unconfrontable, off-limits subject. Eventually they too resign themselves to the reality of #life, but given the truly awful world that teenagers have to resign themselves to, it's little wonder they retreat, become retaliatory and try to block the whole world out, trying their utmost to resist the inevitable resignation to a life of #denial.
BUT wonderfully, adults can now be honest about the human condition, be honest about their fraudulent, superficial existence and explain why it has been such an important and necessary part of the human journey. The relief this #honesty will bring to teenagers (and adults) is astronomical and most beautifully will allow them to retain their zest for life and make the need to resign to the hellish adult world unnecessary.
