Many people will tell you that the teen years can be the greatest years of your life. They can be—but they can also be the most challenging time because you’re transitioning from childhood to adulthood in just a few years. If you sometimes feel down because you’ve got too many pressures, you’ve got good reason to feel that way.
All of these expectations can seem like too much to cope with. You may get down on yourself because you think you’re not doing as well as you should. Just remember that you’re facing a HUGE job, and nobody expects you to be perfect. Although your teen years can be a difficult time, it’s possible that you may look back on your teen years as the greatest years of your life.
Karen advised you well. Take her comments to heart and you will begin to feel better.
