What was/is the worst part about being a teenager for you? It's a tough time all around I think: with deciding your career, pressures of school and good grades, puberty, peer pressure, etc. What was the worst part for you? Any experiences to share?

Acceptance and being cool enough to some to get that sense of pride in you. And Heaven forbid you are picked on or hated for something because you appear lesser than others.

Yesh and that for some reason doesn't get easier (sometimes) as an adult. There is always that one person that is just rude from childhood to adulthood....

It's been a long time. But, It was hard to be told what I could do and couldn't do, as I felt like I knew everything as was grown up.

I think peer pressure got me alot, but I coped with it by just learning how to say no and stand up for myself.

My toughest part was being accepted as a young adult. I was always to old to act like that and to young to make those kind of decisions. Parents are retarded when you are a teenager. They don't want you to grow up but they also don't want you to act like a baby. It is tough all the way around and does not get any better until you are well into your 20's

i think that the worst thing is just all the pressure and high expectations.. i mean.. school is easier for some then others.. but alot of parents just set the levels so high that when their child falls short, they can sometimes feel depressed and that can lead to harmful behavior.. thinking back probably one of thehardest things was beginning to think like an adult without being treated like one.. i remember feeling like i knew the right thing, but no one "listened" i mean.. inside.. you ALWAYS feel beyond your years.. but you really still are only a kid! and you are treated as such. i think that was most difficult

The fact that no matter how hard I tried, I could not make a friend. It was horrible. Teenagers, and children, can be so cruel. If they don't like the way you dress, talk, smile, etc. you might as well forget ever having a chance of being their friend.

the worse part for me was the pressure i got from my mother, always wanting me to be the perfect kid, that is hard to live up to.
