My name is XXXX, and I am fourteen years old. My life as a teenager is like a roller coaster ride. It’s very happening, lively and joyful. But on the other hand it’s confusing and very demanding too. I am neither a child nor an adult anymore. They call us adolescents.
Me being a teenager
My school is the place where I enjoy a lot with my friends. These days I feel my friends can understand me more than my parents. My parents say that I am not a kid anymore and want me to behave like a grown up. But they themselves treat me like a kid, advising me in each and everything I do. I need some space, and I want them to believe in me fully. It is really confusing to when to behave like a child and when not to.
I enjoy spending time in front of the mirror, worrying more about my looks. My friend’s views mean a lot to me these days. I feel more comfortable discussing my physical and psychological changes that I am going through with my friends. It gives me a little fear when I think that this is the time to decide about my future. In few more years, I will become major and will have the right to vote.
I am eager to cast my vote in the coming elections. I have already started to learn driving. Four more years and I would get my driving license. Then I wouldn’t depend on my parents to go anywhere. These days I have started to watch news channels to know the current affairs. I am given the option of choosing the career which i wish to pursue. There are many distractions available but I don’t want to get diverted from my goal.
As a teenager, i find it difficult to differentiate between friendship, love and infatuation. At times like that my parents give me friendly guidance. I don’t want to make any serious mistakes, for which I would have to regret in my future. I am enjoying the sweet days of my teen, which I know am going to cherish and relish in my old age.
