My White Friend After Graduation…

So, after graduation I had a mini quarter life crisis. At first, I felt overwhelmed by the thought of not knowing exactly what I wanted to do with my life or how I would get to that point. Don’t get me wrong, I am relatively successful in my own right for a multitude of things, but career wise…I was stumped. Nothing screamed to my soul and that terrified me. 

So, I discussed this with a fellow friend of mine. See, we both graduated from the same high school with state and school honors. So…we related to one another. Well, almost. I realized that the reality of the real world and not being sure of a career didn’t bother him at all. 

I realized, it was because…he’s white.

No offense to him, but America was designed for him. It was designed for him to settle into mediocrity within his life and still be seen as better than an educated black man or woman.I also realize that he, along with many of my other white friends, tend to enjoy life regardless of the obligations they may have. 

This comes from the social stigma.

Black parents have taught their children how to survive and thrive, while white parents…are teaching their kids how to live all along. There is a sense of worry and priority that comes with my blackness that doesn’t affect my friend at all. He is carefree and living life.

But..that’s life, right?

SN: I know what I want to do now…THANK GOD. Lol.

I deleted Facebook…and Snapchat…and uninstalled Instagram

All in an instant. I believe it was time for some soul searching and technology detoxification. I vent on tumblr so…I needed to keep this one. But nonetheless, it’s been 5 days without all the tech and I feel lovely.
