Too FastI admit that i grew up too fast. When i was younger....maybe 14 or 15 (the worst years of a teen's life to me) I wanted so badly for someone to like me, to think i was pretty. I wanted to be popular and feel like i belonged. I realize now that every teenager wants that but when you're that age it seems so urgent and thats why i believe most kids grow up too fast.
I lost my virginity at an early age. For me it was early at least. 16 was too early for me and I just wanted attention from the opposite sex. I regret it now, among other things. I continued that promiscuous lifestyle for a while. Thank God I never got pregnant or contracted any diseases.
Then there was the drugs and alcohol. I was hanging around people much older than I was. I was impressionable. I just wanted to fit in. I still continue to use drugs, pot and alcohol mainly, but not like I used to. It used to be an everyday thing, or at least every other day.
I'm not that old. I'm only 23 but I know what it's like to grow up too fast. If I had the choice I would go back and change some of the stupid mistakes I made. I wouldn't be so gullible but I guess those mistakes are what make me who I am today. A word of advice: Just take it slow. Keep your priorities in order. Don't get caught up in the "glamorous" lifestyle of drugs, sex, drama, etc. I wish I could go back and take it slow.
