I see a lot of depressing things on this site. Post like “I want to end it” or “I’m giving up”. In light of that, I’m sharing something I wrote a while back. Not sure if anyone’ll ever see it, but hey.
Adolescence is a twisted road of emotions, hormones and stress. Sure, it won’t last forever, but sometimes it feels as if it’s taking about that long for the roller coaster of uncertainty to end. It’s frustrating, really. Especially when you’re someone who hates themselves, as well as all of the emotional theatrics, and is “pathetically hopeless when it comes to the whole issue of ‘love’”. And then, when you look back and realize that you really aren’t any different when it comes to being emotional and dramatic, it just makes you hate yourself and the other things that much more. It feels like being hopelessly trapped. Which is another statement that may seem overly dramatic, and again, make you a bit more angry with yourself. Sometimes it can’t be helped. Being a hormonal teen is horrible but temporary, and there are a plethora of situations a person could be in that are worse than this. Just remember: It gets better, but only if you want it to.
