“The 6 Decisions That Shape Your Future as a Teen”
Welcome! I’m Shawn, the author of this article, and I’m glad you’re here. This isn’t going to be your typical boring audiobook – it’s different. It’s specifically for teenagers, addressing your life, your problems, and your experiences. This article revolves around one important concept: the six crucial decisions you make during your teenage years that can shape your future.
Let’s get straight to the point – these decisions are make-or-break moments, so it’s essential to choose wisely and not let them go to waste. However, even if you do make a wrong choice, it’s important to remember that it’s not the end of the world. Simply get back on track swiftly and start making smarter decisions for your future.
Being a teenager in today’s world is tougher than ever. While our grandparents may have had their own challenges, we face a completely different set of obstacles. From media overload and party drugs to internet porn, date rape, terrorism, global competition, depression, and heavy peer pressure – it’s a whole different ballgame. Although I no longer fall in the teenager category, I remember the ups and downs I experienced vividly.
For me, most of my problems began right from birth. When I was born, the doctor was perplexed about where to spank me because my cheeks were so fat. This became a recurring theme as I grew up, and I was constantly teased because of my “muscle cheeks” – as they jokingly called them. It’s funny now, but back then, it was difficult.
As I entered junior high school, seventh grade was a year I’d rather forget. However, the memory of an eighth grader named Scott picking on me still remains. I don’t even know why he chose to target me, as we had never met before. Perhaps he saw an opportunity to prove himself by bullying someone. Every day after my algebra class, he and his friends would wait in the hallway, challenging me to a fight.
Filled with fear, I tried my best to avoid him. One day, he cornered me and called me hurtful names. When I didn’t respond, he punched me hard in the stomach, leaving me breathless. I was too scared to fight back, and after that incident, he left me alone. But the humiliation and feeling like a loser remained with me.
By the way, it’s worth mentioning that I’ve grown bigger than Scott now, and although it’s just a joke, there’s a part of me that still wishes I could confront him. But that’s a story for another day.
