New Week- Opportunity

There comes a point in your life where you say to yourself, “enough with the bull, I gotta pick it up.” I know I always rant about how being young shouldn’t mean anything, but it’s always a subject of conversation because it’s the truth. The most irritating thing in life is not getting the same opportunity as someone half way through life already. It’s not your fault you were born in the year that you were born. Opportunities and motivation in life shouldn’t be based on age, but rather on your willingness to put in the work that is needed. You can’t have “experience” if no one is willing to give you the chance to GAIN the experience that so many businesses require. Life is a never ending battle of inequality. African Americans had to fight for their rights. Women had to fight for their rights. And it seem as though in today’s society, the youth is constantly fighting for their rights. How is it fair that someone at the age of 23 who’s willing and able to be successful and push themselves loses in the battle for a position over someone who’s let’s say 42. And why would they lose the battle? Because companies see someone who’s older and think “they probably have more experience, they could probably do more for us.” Sure, that could SOMETIMES be the case.. But not always. Wouldn’t companies want to bring in someone fresh and young, to continue on with the company? I guess not. My point is, is that it shouldn’t be this difficult for young people to get their foot through the door in this big world. Hello, land of opportunity.. Give us that opportunity to prove ourselves worthy.
