Becoming a Teen—the ups and downs
Everyone says that high school is tough and that teen years are difficult for people to get through… but that is not entirely true. Yes, the school courses get harder and you have to learn how to manage your time wisely between school and other activities, but high school is a blast and flies by. In reality the emotional and tough part of your life is when you go through puberty… so in other words middle school.
Middle school is one of those awkward stages of life where you go through changes. It is the time where some of us get blessed by the good Lord above and some of us are not so lucky… In middle school you are not only going through all these changes, but you are also trying to fit in and discover more about who you are and how to feel comfortable in your own skin.
Most bullying goes on in middle school… I’m not just talking about the fist fights, but verbal bullying happens a lot too, especially between girls. Girls can be mean and cutting because they are jealous or are just trying to be “popular” or fit in.
From experience, I know how bullying feels and that it hurts. What you need to do if you are being bullied is tell someone!! I know all you girls hear this all the time, but it’s the truth telling someone can really help whether it’s your parents or an adult at your school…speak up! Now, if you are the bully you need to consider all the people you are hurting and how badly words can affect people. I know everyone has been hurt in this world and jut think of how that feels. That is what bullies are doing to other people. I encourage you if you’re a bully not only to stop bullying but apologize to people you could of hurt, you have no idea the difference it could make on that person’s life.
To conclude, I know becoming a teen is an awkward stage of life but stay strong, be yourself, and be nice to one another and you will make it through middle school just fine(: Then once you hit high school you will have the best four years making memories with the people you love.
