Genre: Relationships- real stuff
Making friends, keeping friends, peer pressure, those toxic people that just hurt and gossip- how do we handle them?
How do we handle the garbage of social media, it many ways it disempowers us so much and then why am I so different to my mates, am I weird or do I just have a different personality?
Sitting in the library I watch and see all these issues unfold before me, thankful that I am past this stage but aching because I remember how it feels.
