How Would You Describe Your Teen Years?

I was a very rebellious teen. My mother was off the wall!

My teen years went reasonably well. My only issues had to do with my parents constant battles. I could usually put them out of my mind to enjoy the day - but going hope could be unpleasant.

I have very few good memories of my teen years.

It was good for the most part. My family was awesome and we did a lot of awesome things and took many vacations. My boy friend at the time made it hell.

I'm going with my teen years were horrible. I developed a mental disorder around this time and that was "fun".

It was a lot of bad. My eating disorder almost killed me.

A lot of good memories, but mostly bad ones.

I should have taken the GED in 8th grade so I could have avoided that hellhole ... I would have been able to pass it at 14. Despite having my small groups of friends (depending on which high school I was at - I attended three during that time), high school was a neverending carousel of hell with burnt-out teachers, bullies, and inane bullshit. Home was okay once my ex-step-father finally ran away (I was having to sleep with a baseball bat next to my bed because of his emotional incest crap).

If I had to go back with what I know now, I'd go to the day after high school graduation. Many mistakes and lack of action during that time fucked me up throughout my 20's, and it'd be interesting to go back and get my shit together and see where I would end up.

It was a mix, but looking back, it was also a cakewalk in comparison to my modern life.

My teen years were a complete nightmare and I try not to think about them much.

I have mainly bad memories of my teens, I was diagnosed with depression aswell as just having the normal hormonal moods. That along with having an ill parent made it hard.

Solitude from 14 on. Ended up on the wrong side of the class politics in middle school, accidentally made an enemy of the vice principal's kid, who just happened to be a classmate of mine in almost every period. Transferred out, did school over the internet until college. As I'm only 20, my memory should be perfectly clear... but it isn't.

I remember bits and pieces of the conflict I had with other students. The last straw was when one of my class notebooks was stolen by an absolute trollop right before finals.

It actually affected me more than I like to admit. Made me almost unwilling to form emotional attachments to other people, and I absolutely hate being touched unprovoked, save something like a playful punch. Outside that, the only living thing that dares make sudden physical contact with me is my cat.

Had some minor parental issues as well, and I remember I would spend hours thinking of ways to get out of this place, what became a twisted mockery of home.

I am glad things have gotten better for me, although the effects linger.

Unpopular and invisible in school, depressed and mostly unhappy were my days. Found myself in an unhealthy relationship at 18 and in the military at 20 thanks to the Vietnam war. It probably saved my life by giving me structure and something I could focus on. I would NEVER want to go back and relive those days except where I met my best friend, still, after 48 years.

For me I had less than stellar teen years. I went into high school pretty happy and then I don't know what really happened. A lot of betrayal from my 'friends', really. Some borderline abuse from one of them.

Once I got into college things looked up though.

There were a few happy memories though and I'm glad to have them. I don't really regret those experiences though, they taught me some valuable life lessons.

Full of bad experiences. Hopefully I'll be able to help teenagers in the future based on this experience in the future.

I just left my teen years, and they were pretty bad. A lot of drama and emotional turmoil that has definitely shaped how I view people now.
