The Struggles of a Teen

Updated on December 5, 2015

We have all heard of puberty and we have all gone through it or yet will. We have all gone through self doubt, sassy stages, anger issues and much more when we were teenagers, and for those kids who haven’t yet reached that stage, well aren’t you kids in for a ride…

Your teenage years might seem to be the most exciting years of your life because in those few years, you will make so many experiences. For example, meeting new people, understand the meaning of friendship, falling in love, being in a relationship, getting your heart broken, saying goodbye, and on top of that, you need to stay focused on your academics. It’s tough being a teenager. All these new experiences, all that school work, and just for that extra bonus from satan, puberty. Yes we all remember going through it. All of a sudden you develop an attitude, you learn how to talk back to your parents, you will get into arguments, your hormones are totally confused and don't know what you are doing, but in the end, we come out a shaped human being who has their plans sorted out.

With Puberty comes age and with age come more problems and responsibility. Why do our parents expect us to grow up and become more responsible when they themselves deny their age and still act like they are in their teenage years? We all want to stay young because those were the days that mattered most to us. We didn't have many responsibilities then, we had little problems and we could do whatever we wanted without worrying about taxes, bills, money, work, and all that other stuff that comes with being an adult.

Even though sometimes you might think your parents are being completely irrational, and sometimes think to yourself “I can’t wait to move out”, trust me, they are not being irrational. I guess they have a point because they don’t want us to live on the street, but actually become successful business people and live the life of our dreams. But will all of us ever reach that dream life? No. Not all of us have the same opportunities, not all of us take risks, and we are all different, but we all have the same dream. We all want to grow up and have a nice car, a dream villa, a credit card that won’t run out. Sadly, it only hits those who work hard, already come from wealthier families, and those with a lot of luck in life.

Parents can put a lot of pressure on their children during their teenage years, and trust me, I would know. But you have your own dreams. No one can shape those dreams for you or take them away, because they are only yours. Your parents only want to guide you in the right direction. And as for me, I’m in my last year of High School and even though I still get into arguments with my parents over my life, I always think, they only mean good. My parents don’t want me to grow up and have one door slammed in my face after another. They want me to walk into my own life and safely know that, with effort, all my doors are open in the future.

Thank you Mom and Dad

      Yes, you have your own dreams, and one day you will truly fly. Nice Hub. The voice of Kahlil Gibran may help you. He wrote the 2nd most translated work in the entire world. After the bible. Read The Prophet, if you haven't yet. It's worth a read. Much Love, young Journalist.
