I remember as a teenager having moments when I felt like things were always going wrong. There were days especially when it felt like everything came crashing down all at once. There were always temptations to throw in the towel and give up pursuing my dreams. However, I’m glad I didn’t.
Lots of teens get depressed, anxious, angry, frustrated due to their life circumstances. Sometimes they resort to extreme measures like cutting, other self-harm, or suicide. However, as bad as it can seem at times, it will get better. Our advice to teens is always: never give up.
Everyone experiences failures and setbacks. Sometimes people experience a lot of them before finding the happiness and success they want. Many famous musicians, actors, athletes, and other figures experiences rejection after rejection and setback after setback before making it big. However, they resisted the urge to give up. Imagine if they’d given up right before their breakthrough!
So, never give up on your dreams or your goals even when it seems like things are at a low point. Seek help from others if you’re having mental health problems and continue to fight for what you love and want out of life.
