Who I Am Hates Who I’ve Been

Life is hard. If it’s easy, you’re doing it wrong. There is always pressure and stress around us. It’s everywhere. A lot of people say that teens don’t know what pressure or stress is, but they’re wrong. If what we feel isn’t stress, then what is?
Lately, I’ve been looking into the mirror and catching myself wondering. I’ve been wondering about a lot lately; about who I am, who I’ve been, what I want. The scary thing is, I’m not sure anymore. I don’t think I ever was. I have never drank, never done drugs, or had sex. Surprising for teens now a days.
I want everyone reading this to know that you’re not alone. You and I feel the same way. You and I both know that we got ourselves into this, now we have to get ourselves out. This doesn’t mean we won’t fall or need help. This doesn’t mean we’re weak. This means we are strong, we are brave, and we ARE above the influence.
