Sometimes life seems to come at you all at once. Or, it’s just one uphill battle after another.
In your teen years, more challenges will come along and shape who you are. Becoming that person and gaining independence is the end result, but sometimes just surviving the day can be difficult. Situations that involve parents, family, drugs, school, friends, violence, and suicide are all too common in daily life. Intense feelings of anger, frustration, loneliness, anxiety, and depression can be normal. However when such strong feelings persist and affect your ability to keep up with life, it may signal a problem that needs more attention.
