Teenage years are usually characterized with highs and lows, joys and pains, disappointments and successes. Sometimes, the unknown hits extremely hard and in that bizarre moment, finding the inner stability to return to normal, tends to be an experience to learn from. Experiences can help you row your boat through the storms of adult life; typically the storms of life can come in different handy forms, some storms fiercer than the others but, like the saying goes, ships don’t sink because of the waters around them, ships sink because of the water that gets into them.
Hence, no matter what you find going on around you, as disastrous as it may seem, never let it weigh you down. No matter what life may bring, remain consciously aware that our reactions are our responsibility. Dealing with my feelings in the face of unpleasant circumstances has remained the hardest thing for me.
Consequentially, that brings me to the best things about being a teenager – temperance for adventures, being driven tirelessly by the excitement of the unknown, the wonder of where I will be in 5 years, and what country I will travel to.
The one major thing that remains a constant in my mind’s eye is my education. So far, I have been able to choose between the subjects that I do not really enjoy and the ones I love passionately. Being a teenager can be the most nerve-wracking thing because as a student, I am committed to always improving which does not always happen as planned, sometimes I fail but coincidentally that is the excitement of it.
My quest for knowledge has allowed me to meet new people with the same interests, which sometimes leads to new meaningful friendships, so the point is paradoxically the cliché of the unknown is the best part of the teenage-hood. If I was to have a younger teenage sibling and they would want my advice, I would say – please don’t read too much into what other people think about you. I know that this is extremely easy to say and extremely difficult to do. I’ve been there and done that. At one point in my life, I let what other people thought of me control me, and eventually, I became that person. I wasn’t the person I wanted to be, but instead the person everyone thought that I was. Control who you are and who you become. Even though you can’t control people’s thoughts about you, you can be happy with whom you are, and this positivity will be reflected back to you through their thoughts. (I’m not sure this sentence fits here. We can’t control other’s thoughts of us as you said a couple of sentences above. Maybe end this with …you can be happy with whom you are and carry with you positivity in that.)
Remember that your friends sometimes will change; some will turn their backs on you and terribly hurt your feelings nevertheless choose to be responsible; don’t become angry when that happens. Don’t let people walk all over you, stand your ground for what you believe in and know when it is time to let go of people who no longer make your life better.
And, above all, remember never to give up on your dreams, no matter how impossible they may seem, and always believe that your dreams can come true.
