This year I thought it would be super exciting to take part in #Blogtober2017 if you don’t know what that is, then hop along to Hexmum’s blog (Mandi) and you can take a looksie. I have also decided that I’m going to go all Stealth mode with these posts, as i don’t want to spam my homepage with blogtober, but don’t worry I’m still taking part! – You can also click on my blogtober image in the sidebar.
Day 20 of Blogtober is about Teenagers. Can I just say, i can’t believe we’re on day 20 already, it’s gone by so fast. For this one, as the title suggets, i’m going to talk about my teenage years, and why i regret them. I’m pretty sure i wont be along when i talk about some of the stuff thats happened, some awkward, some stupid and some embarresing moments.
Growing up, I’ve always been pretty mature, and have always had a “level head” but I still had that rebellious streak that most teenagers go through. Especially in the emo/scene phase of my life, going out with a large group of friends who were into the same music, dressed the same and had long sweepy bangs.
But what I regret about my teenage years is that I don’t know why I had such a rush to grow up, looking back I wish that I took it easy and never rushed into some things.
Often I wish that I could go back in time and tell my younger self some things about the future, respect and who you’re “real” friends are, because I didn’t have an awful lot of best friends growing up, and feel like a lot of them just used me or took advantage of my kindness, as I would never argue or cause trouble, so I would tend to be the girl that everyone told there secrets, and being burdened with so many secrets that weren’t mine to keep was hard work, and stressful.
As a lot of teenagers, I would be in a hurry to find a boyfriend, just to fit in and “be cool”, but they never lasted and never really caused heartache, as I was still quite naïve and didn’t know what Love was. I don’t know why I was in such a hurry, I know now that there was plenty of time for boyfriends and all that mushy stuff, I mean look at me now, I’m in a very happy committed relationship with my fiancé who I love very much, despite how we annoy each other sometimes.
I also regret my teenage years because it was the first time that I was introduced the whole world of the internet, and there wasn’t as much advice and safety talks on cyber bullying, grooming and all that nasty side of the internet, and obviously there was MSN too, which was great back then but I regret a lot of the stuff said, I was stupid and did some pretty stupid stuff too, but part of that was down to peer pressure and blackmailing.
Won’t go on much longer but, I just want to say that, even though I regret most of my teenage life, I also am happy I experienced it, because it means that I’ve grown stronger and more wise about certain stuff, and without having the internet I wouldn’t have been able to teach myself HTML, and website design, so there was some good stuff that came from it.
Thank you for reading.
