Growing up is hard.
You know that.
You are surrounded by the things you want to do, and the things that will be important in the future, but you never seem to have a clear grasp on what those things are.
You feel like you need to have the answers, but they never seem like they will ever arrive.
You’re in a weird place where the world you live in is always going to be the same, but it’s not quite the same anymore.
You’re constantly on the edge of your seat, constantly searching for the answers that might not always exist.
You don’t always know what to do with the answers you do have.
I think growing up is a really hard thing to do.
Growing up is tough.
You think you know the answer to everything.
And you’re not quite sure how to get through life without making a big deal out of it.
The most important thing to remember is that the world is going to have to accept you for who you are, no matter how hard you try to change.
It’s going to take time, but the things I’ve found help me feel less alone and more loved: Acknowledge that your life is important.
Don’t be afraid to take risks.
You’ve got your life, so take the risks you want.
It’ll help you feel better about yourself and less alone.
Love yourself, and let your heart beat.
Your heart is the most important organ in the body, and you need it to beat.
You need it because your brain doesn’t work without it.
Don.t give yourself permission to be afraid of what your heart is doing.
It is the only organ in your body that controls your breathing.
Focus on your life.
You may not feel like doing it every day, but try to do something each day that will make you feel like your life matters.
I think that’s what we need to be doing: Make a list of all the things your life has made you unhappy about.
List the things they are that you feel are holding you back, and talk about them.
Don’t let your parents, friends, or anyone tell you that you’re worthless.
When you’re feeling stuck, try to find a new way to get around.
Try new ways to work.
Talk about what makes you tick.
You may think that there are lots of people out there who are struggling with growing up, but there’s not really one way to grow up.
You can be good, but your best friends and family aren’t really.
And even if they are, you probably have to find the best way to deal with your feelings of emptiness and loneliness.
If you want, you can go to a therapist and find someone to talk to about growing up.
There’s really no one way that growing up works, so it’s up to you to figure out what works for you.
I think that we can all learn from each other and share some of our own experiences growing up that could help us figure out how to do the same.
