A time of phenomenal change
The teenage years can be tricky to navigate.
Phenomenal change takes place in a relatively short space of time, across all areas of life: physical, emotional, intellectual and social. The external and internal changes experienced can be stressful, disorientating and overwhelming: hormonal fluctuations, shifts in parental and societal expectations, increasing school and peer pressure, a changed perception of body image, pressure to make longer term choices.
It's easy to feel misunderstood and to react awkwardly or uncooperatively as a result. It can be a struggle to articulate innermost thoughts and feelings. The teen brain is still developing, so decisions made may not produce the best outcomes; they can lack a measure of judgement.
Understanding how to negotiate this important period of time can spare some of the pitfalls, struggles, emerging insecurities and mental health issues.
As a teen are you...
Struggling to find a place amongst peers, within society or the community?
Stressed, disorganised or time poor?
Feeling a weight of expectation from teachers, parents or community. Or pressure from peers?
Lacking inspirational role models and mentors in life?
Glued to tech most of the time?
Emotionally volatile? Anxious, depressed, frustrated, snappy, angry, disobliging, resentful…
Tempted to escape feelings by adopting unhealthy patterns with drugs and alcohol?
Experiencing online or offline bullying?
Engaging in unsettling behaviour?
Generally fine but finding it tricky to negotiate life changes?
When you catch yourself engaging in critical self-talk, take the comment and reframe it in a positive way.
