When you were a teen...

When you were a teen, what was your biggest issue in life? Was it fighting with your parents, doing drugs, having unprotected sex, trying to fit in, etc.?

My issues were definitely fighting with my parents and dating horrible boys that were too old for me.

My parents were the root of a lot of my issues.

My issues revolved around my parents and sister fighting about their issues all the time while I sat stewing in my own depression.

The female side of my family provided a lot of problems - still do, in fact, but now I know how to handle them - and school. I was quite gifted, sure, but I hated school and so I rarely went, and when I did I hardly bothered going to classes.

When I was a teenager my biggest issue was lack of maturity. Despite some difficult parents (doesn't everyone have difficult parents?) boy trouble, hating school etc. I'm not going to blame it on anyone else. I wasn't an adult yet and certainly wasn't a child.

Being a teenager sucks. Once I got into college, started actually being taught things I cared about and matured more things got somewhat better.

My mom and I fought a lot, but as I look back now it was because I was a bit of a difficult teenager. Other than the whole "can't wait to get out of high school and start my life" thing that most teenagers have, I didn't really have much.

My parents were my biggest issue. Next in line was my sister, followed by the idiots I went to school with. They had no issue separating me from the herd and pointing out all of my physical flaws and that they had more money than I did. I isolated myself and then dropped out at 16. I got my GED nine years later.

There was a lot of emotional and physical abuse that was happening in my home growing up. I had to grow up very quickly after I became responsible for taking care of my siblings, especially my sister. My Dad was a huge issue in my life because he was abusive and controlling and made my life pretty miserable for many years.

I also dated a lot of boys, some of them were not good for me at all.

Stupid friends that I shouldn't have hung around

I didn't have a lot of friends, and I felt very isolated at times.

I didnt have friends, it probably didn't help that I was the weird kid. I was in a really ghetto neighborhood and was a mexican who acted white and liked ufos and science instead of gang related stuff. It didn't help that I was zoned out all the time, I had insomnia really bad. I was going to therapy for it and fighting them on being knocked out at night. Needless to say I was very odd compared to everyone else.

i had weight issues. i actually was a good weight & size. i was 5'2" (stopped growing at that), weighed 115, & was a size 8 except jr. yr when i dropped to a size 6. i would gain 20 or so lbs in the summer, then lose it all during the 1st 2 or so months of school b/c of marching band. but i always obsessed over how much i weighed. i still struggle w/ it just b/c my weight fluctuates so much over such short periods of time.

Depression and hardly any close friends.

I was also a gamer nerd too. DnD, Wod, Shadowrun...NOT computer games.

My big issues were my overly controlling father and being picked up at school to the point where I needed therapy. Didn't have issues with boys as I wasn't allowed to date, but they did beat me up from time to time, even jumping me when i was on the way home.

Total misfit. Didn't have sex until my 20s. Lame.

I'm currently a teen. My biggest problems are extreme depression and anxiety. Because of the anxiety I have literally no friends, which doesn't help the depression. I'm only in contact with my dad, who is unemployed and does not care about me. And to top it off I've got back problems which ended up causing me to have to drop out of highschool and have me terrified that I won't be able to walk by the time I'm 30.

Sorry for whining :/

Fought with my dad, but my mom kicked him out. I had a ton of self image issues, so I guess that was my biggest issue.

Being bullied and then dealing with it. It stopped when I went to High School but I still see men as people from Mars - too late to have normal friendships with them.

Being bullied so much that I had to find ways of NOT killing myself nearly every day.

Not to mention the emotional incest from my ex-step-father (who finally left when I was 17).

I would agree with you. I could speak of many issue's I had, but always stemming from the common root theme of my parents.

I was recently reflecting on my teen years with my father. I was a bit of a wild child, in trouble often. Of course, we all feel at that age that our folks are the root of all evil. I laughed, and told him he shouldn't have tried to cramp my style back then. We wouldn't have had issues!

In my early teens I hated my mom and she was my biggest issue. In my late teens it was mostly about my self-confidence and my dad.
