    The worst part about being a Teenager is

    that adults treat you like a little kid and don't think that you can make good decisions for yourself. My Mom is a good Mom but she is really strict and always has to know my business.

    If I ever push you away I don't really mean to.

    When I tell you I don't want to talk about it I do, I just can't find the right words Give me a minute, and if I can tell you; I will. I try to be a struggling mix of happy and who I really am. When I get really quiet sometimes, it's because I have too much to say. I keep...

    So before I start I'm 14 years old and I'm a jersey teen. Whenever you here the word teenager everyone instantly thinks: - they all smoke - they all drink - they all do drugs - they're all obsessed with their phones and text all day - they're all up to no good/ trouble makers...

    I hate being a teenager.

    . People older than us feel like our opinions don't matter and we shouldn't have a say in things. What they fail to realize is that we live in the same world as them and the rules try make and the way the government make things isn't going to affect them. It's going to affect us...

    I am but I don't act like one,

    I speak proper English, I don't swear every other sentence, I don't ware "swag" clothes, I dress more sombrely, I have actual productive hobbies and I have never try to offend people. Teenagers these days are just plain ghastly and need to be disciplined.

    Stressful

    I am 17 years old and I am completely stressed out. I know that many people tend to have issues during their teen years. I really would like someone my age, that understands what I am going through.. basically someone I can talk to. So, I won't always feel so alone :/

    Some are good and some are evil. Some are kind of in between. Everyone has bad things happen to them and they have different ways of coping with them. I was raped a little over a year ago when me and a guy friend of mine were hanging out. The way I cope is frowned upon but...

    Being a teenager means quite a bit of

    responsibility. Going to school, having a job, keeping your relationship with your friends and family. It's tough being at this stage in life. But somehow, almost all of us manage to get through it.
