    Crisis is the default during teen years. When you're not in a crisis it's your mid-teen non-crisis.

    There's so much pressure on you to have great teenage years. Society basically tells you that if you're not getting laid 24/7, don't come up with the best killer idea for a website and don't party every weekend you're wasting your prime years.

    Except that your teenage years are crap, characterised by a lack of love life, fluid friendships with people who you likely wouldn't choose to be friends with if not for being in the same physical location as them and hormones which are overwhelming and often did their best to embarrass you or make you ugly. And despite all this, everyone you interact with feels the same way but thinks they're an adult despite having the emotional intelligence of a child.

    You lurch from angst to angst and the horror of it all isn't truly realised until you can look back on it and say "I was such a **** back then" non- ironically.

    Does it though? I wonder if this is essentially a fiction within a fiction. Or a myth about a myth.

    I mean, as a teenager I remember noting how this was how teenage years were portrayed in fiction, but I never actually felt any pressure in real life to conform to this sort of depiction.

    The reality was more like Stephen's second paragraph.

    This was exactly how it was, and I knew it, and my general impression was that everyone around me felt the same.

    I don't really think so tbh. I only have academic pressure and I'm fairly certain not everyone has that. I wish to not end up a ****tard who clicks PowerPoint presentations for others but that must be universal surely.

    When you are young you think that adults have mostly got it together by their 30's.... when you hit 30 you realise that you don't have it together... when you hit 40 you stop trying and accept you will never have it together.
