Let’s face it – the sad truth is that teens tend to stress out about some pretty minor things. Even sadder is the fact that we were all teenagers once, and we all had these petty problems constantly drilling holes into our heads.
Yes, being a teenager was and continues to be hard, but perhaps if teens would choose to spend these golden years in a more carefree fashion, their pre-adult brains would be so much more at ease. However, teens simply cannot look at the bigger picture it seems, which means that the previous notion of carefree thinking is a dud.
Maybe it’s just a natural part of life that we all have to go through? So, let’s explore the top 5 most ridiculous concerns that teens have, shall we?
5. Acne & Breakouts
Yes, there’s nothing more mood-tainting than waking up to discover a round, red pimple greeting you on your nose. But teens; put it into perspective – a spot or two is not a serious life problem!
4. What To Wear
Whether it’s for a disco or a day trip, teens need to chill out about their rags. In time, no-one will remember that designer label you spent a fortune on, because they were probably too obsessed with what they were wearing themselves anyway!
3. What Everyone In School Thinks Of You
Here’s the thing; in a few years you won’t even know most of these people anymore. Therefore, their opinions of you don’t matter long-term. So just focus on what your friends and family think of you – not random strangers in your school!
2. Having A Hot Body
You’re still going through puberty – please don’t fret about your hip circumference or anything similar. And I know you’re comparing yourself to models or actors in teen movies – bear in mind they’re a lot older than you and fully developed!
1. Getting A Boyfriend/Girlfriend
Yes, sadly this is the no.1 concern for many teens. The truth is that most of the time, your teenage boyfriend/girlfriend will not be your adult boyfriend/girlfriend (although there are exceptions.) Just remember that teenage love is painful but temporary! Don’t fret!
So there you have it – the top 5 most ridiculous teenage concerns! Don’t worry teens, as you get older you’ll realise that these concerns are minor and bigger things in life will become so much more important!
But in the meantime, we’ll all forgive you for being worried about these things. We all were once; and the sad thing is that the older you get the more you begin to forget what it was like to be a teenager. Don’t fret about being liked, breaking out in zits, your new item of clothing, your developing body and your potential love life.
Just focus on being you and having fun, because before you know it you’ll wake up at 30 and realise you have to figure out your whole life. Right now, the world is your oyster. Enjoy the power and freedom you truly have.
