What are your thoughts and feelings about depression, loneliness, heartbreaks, being different from your peers, and having to put up a front? How do/would you deal with some of these issues?
I feel that depression, loneliness, heartbreaks and being different from your peers are a part of daily life of a young teenager. These are all factors that shape our behavior and attitude towards life. However, i think that it is actually how we react against these problems that shape us. For example, a lonely person may feel sad that he is left alone by others and are trapped in their own social circles, while some people may change for the better good in order to expand their social circles. This shows that some people will rise up in the face of adversity and continue to move on in life, while some people are unable to continue and are stuck there forever, trapped within the limitations that they had unknowingly set for themselves.
We should not put up a front against our dear ones, as they would be able to help you or relieve you of your stress. It also enables other people to understand us more easily, and improve our social life. It is also understood that not all people are able to fit in and make many friends, therefore, we should be content for who we are and what we are, and focus on improving our own lives instead of trying to imitate another individual's personalities and traits in order to accomplish our motives.
I deal with those issues by relaxing and spending time thinking on how can i overcome them
