Challenges of being a Teenager

Being a teenager is one of the most challenging periods of an individual’s life. Not only are you learning to be independent and become an adult, but you’re also learning about other people and how to handle negative emotions.

Although these years can be difficult for teens, it is also a time where there are so many opportunities that have never been seen before. This blog will help teenagers stay focused on their goals with advice from experts on such areas as education, family relationships, self-image, finding friends, and dealing with peer pressure.


It is important to remember that nobody gets out of this unscathed at the end; some make it out better than others while still not being able to get over the difficulties. However, there are things that have helped me stand strong during these years and bring my own self-image back.

I know some youth might find this interesting and hope that it can help them too. I am quite confident with the advice I’m going to give out, but to be honest, it doesn’t hurt for someone who has gone through the same tough times as much as I have to vouch for these advices.

1. You will feel neglected by your parents at times but don’t forget how grateful you are that they allowed you to grow up and become an independent person. They treat you differently because of the responsibilities they have taken on when raising you, but do not forget how much love is behind it all ultimately. Be grateful for what you have right now because it can be gone at a blink of an eye.

Know your parents, they are the best ever!

2. Just because your crush rejects you doesn’t mean that there’s something wrong with you. Most likely, they aren’t ready to take on any relationships at the moment, or they are just not interested in you. It’s fine to feel rejected and even get mad about it, but don’t let it get in your head. Find another way to enjoy yourself and move on from your crush as fast as possible because dwelling over it won’t help anyone.

3. You will miss out on a lot of things because of school. This can be hard, since you might think that you’re missing out on everything fun, but there are other ways to make good memories than the ones that are centred around drinking too much or staying up late. Instead, try making new friends in school and get excited about the classes that you enjoy.

4. Do not let your grades be the only thing people judge you by. There are plenty of other passions that you have besides your grades, and they shouldn’t matter when it comes to getting a job anyway. If anything, have fun with what you’re studying because if it’s not fun, then why are you doing it?
