Being a Teenager Isn’t Easy

You look around and your friends are having fun, forming relationships, and doing well in school. They are so confident and seem to have it all together. And there you are, feeling alone, lost, or left out. Life is just not a lot of fun. You may ask yourself why is it such a struggle or if it will get better. Will I ever fit in or have true friendships and feel good about how I look and who I am?

Stress at Home and School

Balancing home and school stress is difficult; not to mention the pressure of social media and the world which makes you feel you need to be “perfect.” It feels like you’ve failed before you’ve even started. You may compare yourself to others and wonder why they are having a better time than you. You may never feel like “enough.” All this stress may have you feeling like you can’t do anything right and is leaving you feeling lonely and confused. What should you do and where can you go from here?
