Have you ever heard someone exclaim "Well, I never asked to born!"? The reason I've been thinking about this is that things aren't turning out too well for me, what with failing one of my college classes, I can't afford to get my best friend something really nice for Christmas (much less see him), and I don't think the way most people around me would like me to think (alongside other problems). When this kind of stuff happens, I usually think of the titular quote because if I hadn't been born, which isn't my fault, then I wouldn't be like this (or even be able to be like this*
But it wasn't until around yesterday that I thought "Hey, this is probably/might be very unwarranted of me and other teenagers*
since our lives have turned out much better than others' have in the world; we could be much
worse off, and we're complaining?
" (Note how I said probably/might be
, I'm still dangling between both opinions.)
So, do you think "I never asked to be born" is a legitimate complaint or not? Also, please don't tie this into an abortion thread (we have enough of those already) or a blame game. Keep it civilized.
