| FML has become a popular acronym for “**** my life”. Today’s teenagers say this new phrase far too often. “I had a pop quiz today and I wasn’t prepared, FML.” “My boyfriend broke up with me, FML.” “I stubbed my toe, FML.” “My hair looked like **** today, FML.” |
Yes, all the above instances just positively stink. But teenagers need to be aware that there are people in their VERY OWN SCHOOL who live a life so much worse than their own.
That pop quiz? You aced it and it brought you from a D to a C, congrats, you are now passing! Your ex-bf? You had some great times, so cherish them. However cliché this may sound, there ARE other fish in the sea. I guess he just wasn’t the one, whether or not you want to accept that fact. Your poor little toe? Nothing happened. You had a bruised toe for a week and then it healed. Heck, maybe it even fixed that odd deformity you shamefully hide. Your sh*** hair? A person is their toughest critic. But you know that somewhere, someone would kill for your hair. Admit it. You’re a teenager so you’re conceited and you know your hair is awesome.
So next time you even THINK of saying “FML,” consider those who have studied but always failed, those who have never had a boyfriend, those who have/had an abusive boyfriend, those who have broken bones, those who are anemic, those who break bone after bone, those who can’t walk, those who have no hair. Consider these and think “Is my life that bad? Does it stink THAT much? Should I **** my life after I dropped my phone?”
No. Be glad you had those moments, be glad you’re educated, be glad you have the toe to stub, be glad to have hair, be glad to have an iPhone. “Don’t get mad, get glad” is not just a popular slogan for trash bags. It’s a saying that should pertain to your life. Don’t think “S***, I just broke a toenail!” but rather think “**** I’m so glad to have my little toe, however the nuisance it may be.”
Your life, your problems, they are NOT worth the phrase “**** my life,” but they might be worth a phrase more along the lines of “fudge cracker.”
