I think typically the stages of life go something like this:
Childhood is a time of innocence and naïveté. You can do or be anything you want as long as you set your mind to it, your parents know everything, and the world is a generally nice place with generally nice people.
The teenage years are when your rose tinted glasses start to crumble, and your child-like hopes and dreams are crushed under the cold, hard weight of reality. You realize that the world and people are messed up and cruel, and the responsiblities of adulthood that are rapidly speeding towards you aren't ready for and don't want to deal with, but you have to anyway. These types of soul crushing thoughts lead to what is commonly referred to as teenage angst.
Adulthood is when you come to terms with the fact this world sucks, but you have to live in it anyway, so you suck it up and deal with it. As long as you're here you might as well make the best of it. And my gosh were you an idiot when you were a teen. You need to call up your parents and apologize for all the crap you put them through.
That's how I see it anyway.
Pretty much. Although I always was a bit more chill through my teenage years maybe because I knew exactly what I wanted in terms of future (because I knew what I wanted for a job).
I guess everyone deals with this kinda sutff in their own ways. Like one of the reasons why I got slight overweight is that i drowned all my depression in choclate and other sweets aswell as the virtual world cause the real one sucked massive a**.
Nowadays I'm a lot more chill about stuff (although I need to get of my lazy a** from time to time) and came to terms with what went wrong. And again I sucked up my depression because of the fact that the cause (aka Bullies) went away.
Anyway back to topic it's a phase I will go away just don't try to hang yourself up about it.
