GOOD MORNING WORLD
I cannot for the life of me understand how bad you must feel in your soul to attempt suicide. I mean I’ve felt terrible on occasion. Goodness knows I do remember the terrors of being a teen. Even then when I was at my lowest suicide was not even part of my lexicon of words.
Perhaps that is part of it. Is it possible to be exposed to too much? This young girl is not atypical. She has been exposed to more’ stuff’ than I can even imagine I believe. Not everyone is born of a famous father and lived in ‘Neverland’. Yet many young people are exposed to more than they necessarily need to live a good life. So are we adults. Our filters however are more solid.
That too is a part of it. Young people and teens do not have necessary filters to make qualified judgments in times of stress I do not believe. WAIT!!! WAIT!!! Not all, please note, I believe some may be mature enough to make smart decisions in time of stress. If a young person does not have a support system of any sort then they have no real filters upon to which they can put their stress.
Imagine a filter is a real tangible item that you can actually touch or hold. This filter can be place over the top of a sink. What you need to deal with can be drop through it. If there is a solid support system this filter will keep the solids on the top and all the rest will wash away. It is like a colander that holds the ripe strawberries and the water washes away the dirt.
Imagine if Paris Jackson had been raised in a different family with values and morals and faith. I am thinking that the chances of her taking these actions would be lessened. I am not saying they would be gone completely. I am saying with solid filters the possibility is much better for a child to grow into adulthood in a healthy fashion.
I am going to have to ponder this filter idea more. There was a ‘cartoon’ on facebook today that I did not pay too much attention to except to acknowledge it by reading it. It said that teens were taught about all sorts of sexual information in school and given condoms and that guns and the Bible were left out of learning. Perhaps this says much about filters?
…..ONWARD TO MORE MISADVENTURE…
