Is it normal i don't think being a teenager was that great?
I constantly hear people glorifying the teen years and high school, and see movies and hear music about it as well. Teenage love/first love seems to be a common theme, as well as prom.
Am I the only person who didn't think high school and being a teenager was nearly as special as the media and a lot of people like to portray? It was mainly insecure children being rude to each other for no reason, stupid head games, and the awful age where you care way too much about what everyone thinks of you. My first love was pathetic and there was nothing special to remember or cherish about it, and prom was extremely overrated and boring. No hate towards anyone who had a much better experience or the teenagers anticipating all of these things, but I guess I'm just hoping I didn't actually miss out on much.
