Must & Should: Important Lessons for Every Teenager

These are tough times. An average teenager fights with so many challenges that it seems more like a struggle for survival than an opportunity to live and explore life. Depression, bullying, sexual issues, substance abuse, body shaming, peer pressure, academic burden, social media and so much more. It’s almost insane out there.

While as a parent my heart goes all out to my teen, I know there isn’t much I can do about it. She will have to learn to deal with all the complexities, all the insanity around her and create her own breathing space. If with my magic ‘momma’ wand I could, I would change the world around for her. But, I can’t. And my heart aches to see her sad. Almost like an answer to my desperate call for help, I stumbled upon this piece of wisdom on the internet. ( It’s almost like the bible for teenagers. If you are a teenager reading this, you must read though the lines, maybe take a printout and pin it on your wall so that you can read these lines all the time. If you are a parent reading this, make sure your teen reads it too. As a parent, there’s nothing better I can tell my child. God bless the writer of these wise lines.

I am slowly learning that I don’t have to react to everything that bothers me. 

I am slowly learning that reacting to things that upset me gives someone else power over my emotions.

I am slowly learning that the energy it takes to react to every bad thing that happens to you, drains you and stops you from seeing the other good things in life.

I can’t control what others do, but I can control how I respond, how I handle it, how I perceive it, and how much of it I take personally. I am slowly learning that most of the time, these situations say nothing about me and a lot about the other person. 

I am slowly learning that I don’t have to hurt those who hurt me.

I am slowly learning that maybe the ultimate sign of maturity is walking away instead of getting even.

I am slowly learning that I am not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, and I won’t be able to get everyone to treat me the way I want to be treated, and that’s okay. 

I am slowly learning that trying so hard to win everyone is just a waste of time and energy and it fills you with nothing but emptiness.

I am slowly learning that sometimes not saying anything at all says everything. 

I am choosing to be the bigger person.

I am choosing my peace of mind.

Because that’s what I really need. I don’t need more drama. I don’t need people making me feel like I am not good enough. I don’t need fights, arguments and fake connections. I need a more meaningful life. A more satisfying life. A more gratifying life. I need a happier life. And I will get one too!
