I feel that everyone would go through depression, loneliness, heartbreaks, experience being different from his/her peers and have to put up a front. However, it is how we manage and conquer these issues that determines how much we are affected by these issues. Some of us take this as the norm and move on even after facing it, however, there are others that are stuck and admit defeat in the face of some these issues.
Depression comes about most of the time, when a person does not accept himself/herself. But by just launching into a state of depression, nothing will be solved. Heartbreaks are a major part of teenagers’ lives, and so is loneliness and being different from your peers. The need for best friends and to fit in always will not be achievable for many, and thus we need to learn to be contented and to accept that everyone is unique in their own way.
There is no one fixed solution to dealing with this problems, but I know that I am special, and I will not surrender when faced with these issues, because it is all part of life, all part of the process for us to strengthen and to improve.
