    Can't find an old posting - it contained some advice for young men

    A while back there was a posting made in a thread that I cannot for the life of me track down.
    The posting contained some very wise words for young men (and old) on the value of respect and how to treat a woman.
    Can the poster or anyone else point me in the right direction? I know a couple of teens that could benefit from the wise words written.

    "There is no such thing as “the real world” and frankly, I have yet to meet an adult. Everyone pretends that somewhere between 18 and 25, we all grow up, learn how to do things and act like functional normal people. That is all bullcrap. No one knows what they are doing, we are all bumbling around making fools of ourselves and there is also no such thing as normal. You will find that the struggles you thought you would leave behind in high school follow you everywhere, all that changes are the stakes. Instead of gossiping about who kissed who, you gossip about who divorced who. Instead of the popular kids being determined by athletic ability, it’s determined by money and power. Instead of trying to impress a teacher to get a good grade, you are trying to impress a boss to be able to put food on the table. All the while, you put on a front trying to act cool, calm and collected and wondering why the hell you are the only one who doesn’t have their shit together. What teenagers need to know is that you will never have your shit together and that’s okay so stop trying to grow up and find this magical real world and just enjoy the good things and try to be a good person regardless of age".

    That works a treat considering I am a teenager who is closer to 50.....
