A Teenage Life

By: Marlouie V. Batalla


III-Dalton

A long time ago, a child was born with nothing on his mind. A child who gently
sleeps in her mother’s arm, and always cries when gets hungry. This child grew up to
become a great kid. This kid grew up to be me.
Since childhood, I was the happy-go-lucky kid. I really never bothered everything
but only play with my friends. I was so gleeful, cheerful, and always think positively. I
love my friends, and they do love me. But my entire life changed when I entered this
critical stage in life where everything should be systematic. A new chapter in life where
everything calls for desperate measures. Everyone, we’re now leaving Kiddieville, so
fasten your seatbelts, and away we go the TeenTown!
Teenage life is a chapter of our life where we teens should be meticulous in
everything we do. In here, our body grows older, and we can’t imagine the things
growing in our skins as we go through this stage in life. Have you imagined it? That as
we go through this stage, everything changes…physically, mentally, socially, and most of
all, emotionally.
As we go through life, we meet changes. Changes that will make our character
stand above all. What you do now will lay the foundation for your state in the future.
For a short period of our adolescence, we must try to make this the exciting,
enjoyable, and memorable times in our life.
As a teenager, we are in that enviable stage where everything is positioned to go
our way. We are young, full of energy, we feel like we are invincible, totally carefree and
becoming free and more independent.
We will also have a thousand and one questions as we enter this new stage of life.
This is the time when we actually need the guidance and support of our parents and older
people.
We are social creatures and the need for companionship is most pronounced
among teenagers. The company we keep will have a great effect in our teenage life.
Choosing the right circle of friends will save us a lot of troubles, heartaches and possibly
a life of deep regret. Enjoy the company of different kinds of people and develop
important social skills.
It is very rare to find young people who set clear definitions and limits on their
personal behavior. Whether it is drugs, crime, premarital sex, pornography, alcohol,
smoking etc., many young people just seem to go along with the crowd. They easily give
in to peer pressure.
There may be temporary thrills and pleasures but the end result is always the
same- a life of grief and deep regret. It can also be the most tragic and heart breaking for
some.

I never knew what people meant when they say, "These are the best years of our
life!" I still haven't figured that one out but at least I can look back at bygone opinion
pieces and think of myself, "AWWWWE, yeah It was!" in a very genuinely sarcastic
way.
