Being a youthful person is in that age bracket where one thinks that this is the time to enjoy life at its fullest and with no limits. However, what many don’t think is the consequences that follow after whatever one engages in.
Look like for this case, a youth may result to drinking which first starts like fun and then one becomes addicted thus heavy drinking. There are those who cannot do without drinking alcohol in their day to day lives. The addiction is so much that some feel sick if they try to abruptly stop drinking.
At times to save the situation there are those who are taken to rehabilitation centers for them to rekindle their normal life. Even if alcohol addicts get the assistance that they require to reform, this still takes some time for them to get well completely. So through this, they will lose a lot of their precious life and remember; time lost is never recovered.
On the other hand, you may find youths who think that enjoying life is well cemented by having many girlfriends and engaging in sexual activity. This may result into a young person having children that he will have to cater for later in life since they also have a right to education and getting other necessities.
This is something that can be avoided by keeping your mind sober you as a young person, and having something more worthy in life.
So I think as a youth, it’s important to sit down and consider whether a certain path has positive or negative effects. Listen to your elders for they have more experience in life and so it’s obvious that there is more to learn from them.
Remember, how you behave as a young person is a determinant of your future success and don’t wait to ever follow the path of ‘I WISH I KNEW’
