Adolescence is a critical life stage for every human being, it is when we start to find our self, what we really like and who we are; also the stage when we are most concern of what people think of us. If you grow old with that set of mind that people are always watching and judging you then you are never going to truly become your own self. You need to grow of that fear and realized that everyone, even the popular kids that seems to have everything handled, are going through the same.
When I was a teenager my mom would spoil me and give me everything I asked for. At that moment I would think she was the best but now that I’m older it has become time to realize that life is not as easy as it seems and you have to work hard for the things that you really want. Needless to say, I’m thankful for my mom and everything she has done for me, but I’ve learned that the day I got my own kids I will make them work for what they want since day one; this way they will learn to appreciate things more.
