On Early Pregnancy : The Battle Between Heart and Brain
THE battle between heart and brain has been a good topic of discussion eversince. This subject ignites different opinions and point of views from people. Which should you listen to? The thumping and erratic beat of your heart or the logical whispers of your brain? I guess you can choose both. It's okay to follow your heart without discarding the logical side of your brain. You can fall in love but you can't allow it to blind you from making logical decisions. You have to always be careful of your actions because the consequences can be too much to handle. It can change your whole life entirely.
Early pregnacy is an issue that keeps on getting worse generation after generation. Some teenagers were left with no choice but to face the life of parenthood instead of seizing their youth life and the endless opportunities ahead of them. Some young men runs from their responsibilities leaving the innocent young girls to face the consequences alone. It's too hard to handle especially when their parents have worked hard to send them to school and are expecting them to be the hope of their family. It's a stressful and depressing situation which even results to abortion and suicide.
I understand that humans have sexual needs. But there is a right time for everything. I am not against premarital sex but if you're too young to indulge in such act, think twice. No, not just twice. Think again and again and again until you realize that sex was not designed for young people who are still not capable of its possible repercussions. I understand that when you fall in love, you lose your senses. Love, no matter how beautiful, can be blinding, deceiving and misleading. It can make you make reckless decisions and will make you forget about what's right and wrong.
Eyes on your goal. Never forget about it. Think about the things that fuels you to study hard. You want a bright future for yourself and for your family. Again, there is a right time for everything. Love and lust can wait. You cannot let it ruin your future. Yes, there are a lot of young parents who were still able to be successful despite having a baby at an early age. But not all can handle it. Not all can achieve their dreams while taking care of a child. A child is a blessing, yes. But it's a blessing that should be claimed or received at the right time.
Enjoy your teenage life. Study, find a part-time job that can help you financially and will make you learn more things, travel, buy the things you've always wanted, meet new people, explore, enjoy! You don't have to be stuck at home taking care of a child at a young age. You still have to go through a lot of things to reach a certain level of maturity that will make you prepared to become a parent.
Think wisely. Always.
