Besides being a reality series one MTV the Real World is a concept created by societys. Kids are always being told that they are being prepared for the "real world", but they do not always understand what the "real world" is. The Real World begins after high school/college depending on the person's situation.
The Real World has two parts. Children are very innocent. The Real World is understanding that the world is not a giant piece of candy. The world is very beautiful, but one must also understand that there is an endless amound of suffering. There is violence, rape, theft, drugs, abuse, greed, pollution, and corruption.
The Real World is basically just being an adult. It is being able to go to work every day, It is trying hard to move up career wise. It is not easy for most people. It is being able to manage bills, stress, and understand that life is not always fair. America has this myth that if a person works hard than that person can be whatever he or she wants to be. That is not always true. In the Real World some people work hard every day of their lives and never escape the social class that they are in. A person just has to keep trying. The Real World sucks ass.
