Teenagers, they live without pain or worries. Or is it not like that? You are wrong. It isn’t only a single pain, it’s a lot of pain joined together. Adolescence, everybody talks about it, kids don’t know it, teenagers waste it, and adults miss it. But who understands us? We don’t even understand ourselves. We judge, criticize but don’t get over things. We follow trends to feel better. Sometimes everything is white, and then it’s black. We wish to have a better physical appearance rather than a talent. We want everything without having to do anything. Who knows what goes on in our heads? Who understand what’s falling in love with an idiot? Who suffers because of love, family, and studies and still has a smile on their face? Who experiences body changes, feels inferior, feels left out, who knows what’s falling again and again? Who has to bear with cranky teachers, who vent in class? Who starts to have responsibilities, starts creating a future, falls in the sad reality that secret super spies or princesses from movies don’t exist, that you have to move forward without disappointing your parents? Tell me who has all this pressure? The one that no adult understands, those who say that they were already our age, that they don’t understand that it’s not like before? For them, we are lazy, get drunk and do drugs. Pain? We all feel it. But the worst pain is deception, disappointment, falling into reality. It’s knowing that if you sleep on the sofa, you’ll wake up there. If you don’t dress properly, you are disgusting. If you wear a hood, you are a thief. If you follow your dream, they’ll laugh at you. If you skateboard, you do drugs. If you have no phone, you don’t exist. If you think differently, they’ll leave you out. It’s not easy to be a teenager, but it is the biggest learning process we are ever going to have in our lives. It’s the experiences we will tell our children and grandchildren. It’s the things that will remain with and touch you forever, and that you only live once. Each time you fall is a lesson, and that’s what adolescence is about, about falling and laughing, because you can get up and know that it will not be the first time you’ll fall nor the last. It’s now or never.
