The pressure of being a teen.

So starting into your teens is nothing new.. everyone has gone through it.. what makes it weird..?
the agony of acne and boys (and girls if you're a boy) and all the madness of school , peer pressure, being liked, standing up for what u believe in even though it isn't really your thing... All people who pass their teens and 20 years later when they have kids themselves say it is just a breeze, a passing cloud, nothing that significant. But ask a teen like me.. what it really means like to be a teen and we could fill pages in a book...

My story ain't so different either. I come from a so-called middle class family with a deep history filled with skeletons, some you wish never existed at all.I was another "geek" the so-called term labeled in your head if you plan to study rather than get drunk and party like a wild animal.

Being a teen, You get your heart broken . back stabbed by the people you trust yet.. you don't dare to say anything to anyone since the only reply you'll get is. " hey.. it's your life...!! stop being a complaint box and live with it" We've cried our heads out in school restrooms and jumped like  monkeys in the corridors if something great happens.. we've all been through it.. hell.. the whole world has.. what's new..

Everyone is given a chance to prove themselves in this point of their life.. most don't.. referring to people who live in a land of make believe... who think life is perfect and it will stay that way.. I'm referring here to people like me who have been labeled a failure by their parents and been given an option of fighting it out to break free from the restraints or get buried six feet below. So to all the people think teenage is the best time of your so-called life.. great for you. but the story isn't the same for half the population around the world.
