I work with teenagers every day, and I what I have discovered is that a great deal of the emotional trauma in their life comes from faulty expectations. Teenagers expect too much from others, especially their peers. Dear young people, stop expecting anyone else to make you happy. I promise you’ll be much happier if you do.
Oddly enough though, teenagers will at the same time settle for far too little. They often allow others to disrespect and pressure them. Young people please, do not allow others to treat you badly. You deserve better. Hang out instead with people who bring out the best in you, and you be the kind of person who brings out the best in others. Follow my advice and see what happens.
Take Away: Teenagers are happier when they don’t expect too much, or too little from others.
