Lol Hard? Life is always hard...some teens are just stupid & care for popularity drugs & sex which makes there life much harder teens think they have it hard yet they don't I mean all you have to do is go to school get good grades not like you have kids to take care of mortgage to pay along with utility bills I don't but I can see what parents go through & kids don't take that for advantage so its there fault & that's why it seems hard there's a whole new world out there so teens you should get ready & start making smart choices cause later you'll end up regretting them

It's not. It is only an illusion that you yourself create. But if you think that life is hard as a teen, then you have a very bumpy road ahead

Life is hard if you take it seriously. Stay on the positive side of life and you will find it easy to deal things in life and find comfort.

Because they are almost adults, feel grown up, and still don't have all the power and privileges of adults.
And because other children are cruel, bullies and judgemental people make them feel bad.

Life is always hard. But, teens these days feel the need to grow up faster than necessary and take on things that they are not capable of effectively handling. Like sex and unplanned pregnancy. Kids don't make good parents.

Raging hormones... they make us exaggerate situations. Also teenagers are still going through their first experiences with everything... we are still learning the hard way!

I know teen years are hard both for the young adults and the parents.It is a time in your life between the last of your childhood and the start of a long life.Parents have to let go some and teens have to make decisions that can affect the rest of there life.You are learning life's mistakes but your under parents shelter still to catch you when you fall.I would do this write a 5 year plan down,grades/sports/job/college/when you want to get married/children.Set some goals you want to reach and look at that plan once in awhile see if you are following your dreams.Set your standards high,enjoy your teens you only get to be a teen 7 years the rest of your life you are a grown up.:)

I have no idea.. But I do know that people DON'T make it hard for themselves. Most of the time, it's other people giving them a hard time.

trust me adults have it hard too, baby's have problems when they want their mommy, teens have problems with school, peer pressure, relationships etc. adults have problems paying bills, taking care of kids, food shelter clothes cars problems at work, marriage issues etc and old people have to worry about falling, memory loss health problems and making wills and picking burial plots planning for their own demise because they know they won't be here long, we all have our problems just make the best of it and hang on for the ride because its a roller coaster.

The way that you view your world is changing. As a child and then an adolescent, your views were pretty much echoes or mirrors of your parents'. But now you're beginning to think for yourself, and figuring out this world is difficult. Add in your amazing bouncing hormones and a new appreciation for the opposite gender, and you have the perfect storm of teen angst. Believe it or not, there will come a day when you look back on these years fondly.

It's hard because your getting older and wanting to be independent yet your still a kid you can think back to when you were little and (for most unfortunately not everyone) life was perfect your only care in the world was what to do if you couldn't go outside and play. Every one was nice and you were protected from the evils of the world. And now the world has changed and you have gotten older you are starting to see what you were protected from and you are being prepared to enter the world as a (hopefully) well functioning adapted adult that knows how to properly handle each situation as it is presented to you. I honestly think teen hood (and high school) is quite far the hardest of your years you make it thru it and you will be strong enough to take on the world and achieve you goals and dreams.

Look at me now has the right answer!
What a teenager doesn't know yet is that there are cruel bullies who will cross your path outside of school. As an adult, you will be faced with even more challenges than you are now.
The very best thing you can do to learn how to deal with difficult situations and people is to read.
That's probably not what you wanted to hear but why struggle by yourself?
There are thousands of books written by people who have already felt the way you are feeling AND you can learn from them! Check out the self help book section.

Im sorry, but you probably dont even know what it means to have a 'hard life'
What happened, someone say you look funny? Your teacher get mad at you for not doing your homework? Your parents say you arent allowed to do something?

I think u went a lil over board with your comment bc we never know whats going on in someone's life. Try being a lil considerate this is a child and as an adult your a role model?

Lizzaboo- i do not know what is going on in they're life, but, i did have a hard life and ive heard plenty of people say 'oh lifes so hard because i cant go out tonight' for that i have no compassion.
If they actually do have a hard life, im sorry if i offended
But just going off the vagueness of this im assuming they have a trivial problem.

Again, i did not mean to offend

No offense but most teens only think they have a hard life! That goes for most adults too.... Put aside ur teenage drama, and think about the kids, teens, or adults that are going thru real problems making their life hard, like cancer or chronic health problems and have to miss out on everyday life experiences like that because of the real stuff they go thru

They are trying to find themselves. It hit me in about 8th grade. This includes what kind of people they wanna hang with (no drugs!) and what kind of person they think they wanna be when they grow up

Life is what you make it hunny. Get a tablet and write down all the things that you feel make being a teenager hard. Then, one by one, see what "you" can do to change things and make them easier. Some things you just can't change, we adults call this the "REAL WORLD"!! But like I said, try this technic because life is what we make it.

Its not difficult, its the teenagers who make it difficult for themselves. Yes there is a lil harmone change thing but its not hard to overcome that. Rule of life be yourself and dont try to be what you are not. We make our lives difficult by not being ourself and pretending to be something.
