I can't relate to people my age anymore - RANT Watch
Can people no longer have decent conversations? Like everyone I talk to always looks like they are dying when in reality, they are just whining about the fact that they have to sit exams. Either pursue academia or don't; I don't and the world doesn't deserve to listen to you sobbing because you can't handle it. People give me so much anxiety with their nonsense. Like breathe. I honestly get so worked up when I am around people who exaggerate about their problems in life.
What are your opinions?
Most people find exams stressful and difficult, but they sit them because they know it's their responsibility. They whine and complain because when they're struggling, it's cathartic to do so. In fact, it's also validating if they find other people who feel similarly (school struggles are especially relatable). People like exaggerating menial struggles. They find it funny because it's irrational and upbeat. It may not make sense to you, but that doesn't make them indecent, invalid or unfunny. It just makes you incompatible with them in that respect.
You're going to struggle if you pay so much attention to things that obviously irritate you. When you encounter such a person, acknowledge that they differ from you and leave it at that. Ignore them and move on to something more worth your energy. People have different humour or style of conversation. In my opinion, the most beautiful part is that you don't have to like theirs and they don't have to like yours.
