Young Adulthood

Posted on January 23, 2018 at 1:30 AM

When you are a teenager, you have more freedom than when you were a kid. You are on the road to becoming an adult. The adults around you are beginning to trust you to look after yourself and to make your own way. More and more, you will make decisions for yourself about the things that are important to you.

With this freedom comes responsibility. What happens to your body and how you look after it is only part of the journey. You will encounter many new situations and new ideas: there’s love and sex, how to keep feeling good about yourself, and how to get on with people.


During this stage of your life, you will feel happiest and grow to your full potential if you remain true to yourself and true to your own personal goals and desires.

Don’t forget that there are people around who care for you, like your parents, teachers and school nurses, who’ll be willing to listen and help you along the way. You’ll make it through adolescence one way or another, but you don’t have to do the hard bits alone if you don’t want to.

I precisely wanted to appreciate you yet again. I'm not certain what I would have carried out in the absence of these aspects discussed by you over my question. It truly was a very scary scenario in my position, but witnessing a expert way you handled it made me to weep over delight. I am just happy for your service and then have high hopes you recognize what a great job you have been providing training people today using a blog. More than likely you've never met all of us.
