Are there many teenagers on this site?

3 years, 1 month ago

I’m 17, and just wanted to know how many other teenagers we have on here. Also, if you’re not, what’s you opinion on them? Anything you regret doing while you were still one?

I’m 32, I was a dick-head as a teen but I suppose I became who I am now because of it, so to change anything is to risk changing who I am. It is a learning process. Teen are young and have less experience in life, I have nothing against that. I never had something like this site as a resource growing up so you are all lucky to have the advantage. You are in a situation to develop in ways us old farts didn’t, quicker and better. But you also have a hell of a lot more distractions that I did not have so be wary of that.

I’m a teenager for about 6 more days and I plan on making a lot more mistakes in my life however long it maybe. With each and every mistake I make I try not to dwell on the stupidity of my action but to learn from it.

But isn’t age all in your head?

Zoe, Age is not such a big deal, young people can be smarter and more mature than older people, even wiser, but unless they sabotage their progress they will no doubt grow into a fuller and much more well rounded and stable individual as they get older. There is a difference with age and I would not go for someone under 27, It may seem prejudice to you but I don’t think so. It is like saying Danny Devito is short, it may seem offensive but it’s true and I don’t hold that against Danny.

I’m 16. The only things I regret (so far) are the things I didn’t do. missed opportunities. But hey,I’ve still got a few years! Just gotta not take them for granted.

21 now, my one regret is not beginning the journey of self discovery at a younger age.

@Caitlin thank you kindly.

@Ray I agree fully, maturity comes with experience whether it comes over a 10 year span or a 50 year span. And age gaps in relationships are somewhat controversial, I pretty open mined when it comes to older/younger partners but I most closely relate to people in my own generation. Not prejudice just personal taste.

I’m 18, almost 19. I regret letting petty problems consume a large amount of time in my teenage years. I made mistakes but they allow me to be a better me. Each year I understand life a bit better and I continue to look forward to the future and the discoveries I will make.

19, turning 20 in January. Only thing I regret was something in Grade 5 xD I’ve tried to make amends, and the person I wronged has said that I have, but it is the only thing that ever appears in my head when I think of things that I regret. One day I will conquer it!

What do you think of studying? Particularly towards the end of school, I’ve still got 2 years to go, do your marks really matter all that much? I’ve never exactly been the most dedicated, getting average marks because of it. Do you wish you studied harder?

@Zoe, you’re welcome :)

@Nick, I wished I had studied harder when I was applying to college, but I’m really happy where I ended up and I think if I actually did get into the schools that I was originally gunning for I would not have met the people I have at my current university and had the experiences I’ve had and value. Grades are not all that admissions offices look at, though. For example, the hardest schools to get into want you to have a 4.0 AND be a superhero before the age of 12. Others are willing to take those with lower GPAs if they demonstrate that they are hardworking now, have good SAT/ACT scores, involved in extracirriculars, etc.

I’m nineteen as well, but teenager has certain connotations that don’t apply to a lot of us. Age in general can only be used as a rough starting point if you’re going to try to judge somebodies experience. Regret is a tricky word cause the past has passed but I probably could have benefited from taking control earlier in life.

I’m 19. So still a teenager for another 6 months. I am amazed at all the posts declaring regret-free life! It’s inspiring if it is true.

I certainly do regret certain things I’ve said or done, but I’m in a place where I can look back on them and realize they had a purpose. In retrospect most things make sense and I can appreciate them regardless of the pain or disaster that ensued.

I believe it is and always will be a process when it comes to regret. Everyone will have regrets. It just a matter of whether you choose to throw them away and forget or dwell on them day and night.

Looking for friends to help me on my mission for self discovery!

I’ll start off by saying I’m extremely shy and socially...
