Dear older me ~

I’ve noticed that most old people are really conservative about lots of things.

But they were young people once, weren’t they? they were 17 once too.

They were once open to question religion and politics.

They were more accepting of differences, most of the time.

I bet if they met the right people, at the age of 17, i bet they’d be more accepting of gays, even if during the 70s.

But now they tell us that they were ‘dumb and oblivious’ when they were young. They tell us that once we grow older we’ll change our minds and know the real world.

But dear older me, please don’t ever change your current mentality. Embrace whichever sexuality you want. Don’t look at young people with their trends and think ‘my generation was better and the rest is just, bad’

Just….stay.
