In the begining

My name is................I'm 17, soon to be 18. Currently studying for my leaving cert, which is made out to be the biggest thing you will ever do. So I am always under the pressure that I "should" be studying. After school I want to hopefully become a youth leader.

I remember when I was younger and everyone would say that the teenage years are the best of your life, and it kind of makes me worry because as much as I am enjoying them, I can't help but wonder.."so these are the best?" I look around every day at all the damage that is done in the lifes of people my age and it continues on with them. I think that they are the most vunerable years and the most frightning. Things stay with people for life if they arn't sorted and emotion that is hidden becomes bottled. I would really like to help girls like me and boys my age when im old enough and hopefully wise enough, because my youth leaders have really made an impact on my life and I feel it's important for the future.

I guess I really don't expect anyone to read this and i'm not saying my name which is why I am being so honest. It's normally not something I would be comfortable doing other than with the people that know me most because i'm not scared they will judge me. But that is everyones fear, which is why they judge others. It's always easier to be angry than vunerable.
