    My question is, will it get easier? I know i’m only sixteen, but my pain is unbearable. no one may understand what i feel, what i go through everyday, but i just need to tell someone that it’s killing me. I don’t know how much more i can take. I probably won’t do anything stupid. Not because i dont want to, but because i know my actions will affect others. I may not understand why anyone cares, but they do, i guess.

      Yes and no. The pain of the smaller things ease, school, boys, parents, but years build on responsibility. Hang tight, because life is such an awesome trip! Life gets so much more awesome than you can imagine, and there is a HUGE, big wide world out there for your taking.

      16 was the most terrible year of my life. I grew up that year. Family shattered, world shattered, trust in people shattered. The shrinks didn’t help. The drugs didn’t help. The friends…not much help either. But I can say that with all that pain, I am the happiest person I know. You live. You learn.

      Would I want to redo that year? Hell no. Not for love nor money. But I wouldn’t take all those growing pains back for all the love and money in the world.

      Chin up, buttercup. I don’t know you, but you are fantastic. Just because you feel. Live, learn, and turn the pain into something fantastic and your own.

      It gets better. It’s called 18. Do yourself a favour and throw yourself into.your studies. Get As. Make a list of every job you think you want to do. Find.out the courses you need to take to get into those Jobs. See the part about the As? Do that. Apply for every scholarship you can. Make a list of all the things you want to do or would be fun to try in this life time. Make a list of all the places you would love to travel to. Get a part time job. Save at least half of your money. You have two years. You have just given yourself a plan of action for the next two years. Oh and exercise. You need to be I. Good shape for wherever you end up traveling. When you are 18 and have finished high-school move away from home…don’t get a credit card. Get a charge card. Earn your money the honest way. Don’t use drugs or booze to escape…use a calculator. It will help you figure out how long it will take you to save how much money you need to fund your dreams. There’s a lot to live for…its called life. At 18 you are legally allowed to live it the way you see fit as long as you are law abiding and pay your taxes. Hope that helps.
