So if you’re a teenager or maybe not I don’t know you clicked on this video and if you’re a subscriber to my channel and you might probably see this as a different kind of video I hope that this will help someone else and you exit this video with a smile on your face.
I turned 17 on July 14 and over the past 17 years I’ve learned a lot of things the first thing I want to touch on is that your teen years are very very very special. It’s this stage in your life when you’re sort of changing off physically as well as mentally. You’re trying to find yourself. You’re trying to find your identity I know it might seem like you really want to be older, to be free and just to have your own life. I promise you that time flies and you won’t notice how fast your teen years will be over. So cherish every moment and don’t live in the future but live in the present.
So the next thing that probably every teen is facing is school. For most people it’s not such a pleasant experience in their lives. I promise you again that time flies and you won’t notice how quick you’ll be a senior and you’ll be done with school at some point. Yyou’ll actually really want to go back there. Something that’s another special thing about your teen friends is what a big topic which I might not be able to go very deep in but I think that the most important thing that you should know is that quality is more important than quantity. It might be just one person who really really understands you on another level or it might be a group of people I don’t know what your case is. I had a lot of stories where I really wanted to fit into a certain crowd and just be like that I feel like in high school. Everyone is programmed in such a way where a difference is not really appreciated or supported. It’s more like judged upon majority of people just do the same thing, say the same things, wear the same things and if you’re not doing that then your title is that weird person. Just try stepping out of the bubble and being yourself, expressing yourself and just not being scared of it.
The next topic I want to talk about is parents. I do feel like there’s a lot of tension between you and your parents because as you’re changing your parents are sort of trying to adapt to the new you and there are a lot of things happening between you guys. Try to understand them in their position. Really all they want for you is the best. Next is that you don’t need to compare yourself with others. Don’t go on someone’s Instagram page, just look at their pictures and wish to beat them because honestly you’re just beautiful the way you obviously in school. We’re very pressured to do well, get the best grades. You shouldn’t really live and focus on your grades and let the grades define you because grades are just numbers. Although they might matter to some extent in reality they are not really as important as your health and as you’re happy too.
Another thing that you should know is that you should find yourself a passion, something that you’re very interested in. I don’t know what it might be for you but you should definitely keep doing it and don’t give up. Lastly it is a big thing especially for me to try to just spend more time in the real life rather than sitting in front of a phone or computer and going with social media. So here’s a challenge for you try to spend one day just without touching your phone. Try this. It wasn’t easy but worked and it was actually one of my favorite days ever. So hope you guys enjoyed this video.
