Real Talk 15: Letter to the kid who eats alone

Yo kid who was eating alone,

You rock. You absolutely rock.

When I was in high school, I feared eating alone. I was insecure. I feared being lonely. I also feared what others would think of me if I looked lonely. I’d admire other kids who would dare to eat alone.

You aren’t like that. You’re awesome. You’re so fucking sure of yourself that you know you’re just eating a meal and giving your body the nutrients it needs.

You don’t give a shit about what others think. You’re focused on your own food. That’s great.

You’re young, so maybe you think the world is a weird, scary, confusing place. Maybe you already think that us adults know what the hell we’re doing with our lives, as if we’re perfect.

You know nothing of the adult world, where guess what? Many of us don’t dare to eat alone. They think it’s weird. They get insecure because of this.

You’ve no idea how far ahead you are with that innocent mind of yours. In a way, you not knowing shit is a great thing.

Such innocence, which I hope you have for the rest of your life. Fuck you world and responsibilities, which don’t even help those who don’t dare to eat alone.

So continue eating alone kid. That’s great. Fuck what your friends think. I hope you have friends of course. Maybe you can share that awesome innocence with them. I hope none of you spend your time glued to the phone too.

Continue eating alone you. You’re doing great.

Do you want more honest-as-fuck stories like this?
