The Sad Girl

This especially concerns the impact of this on Gen Z and teenagers, who spend considerable periods of time on social media, and who are more gullible to being influenced by films and TV. I will also explain the root cause for why so many people have unrealistically high expectations, and I will talk about steps that can be taken to improve the situation.
Who else spent all last summer working? And who else now barely has any money, and will end up going into overdraft? I remember that on my days off, I would look at travel TikTok.
