The saying, “Laugh now cry later”, is very well known in today’s society and is use to destroy it also. This proverb is being destructively used to approve negative actions, to approve negligence on working hard for tomorrow’s future. This saying is well thought out so people can carelessly wreak their lives. Individuals take this saying into hand to excuse their absence of interest and productivity. The first time I heard this saying was towards the middle of my eighth grade year off the mouth of one of my peers.

They would ditch school and go to dangerous parties, they got in and out of bad relationships, and they would drink and drive. But most of all they disrespected their parent’s they wanted to have fun today and live by their motto.
The sad part of this was that most of my friends that once said “laugh now cry later” din’t get their tomorrow and the ones that did are really crying now. In this process some lost their lives others are in jail some got kids at and most do not have a future. They all wish they could go back and value the things they once had like their family or they desire to have that opportunity to take advantage of the education that was once granted to them.
I personally do not like the saying
