Edit: I made this post during a very rough time in my life. I needed serious help and a lot of people were telling me that everything was okay simply because I was in high school. I made the mistake of making this post vague and open to misinterpretation!
Here’s one of the responses I’ve made:
“It’s not okay for an adult to trivialize a youth’s problems. They should give them empathy while also reminding them that not everything magically gets better when they leave high school. Adulthood is full of new and hard responsibilities, but that doesn’t mean other aspects of life don’t get better. Teenagers are at a turning point where they are both children and young adults; they are treated as both depending on the circumstances, which can be confusing. Please don’t tell a youth, especially one in a tough position, that everything is just going to get worse in life. That will only make them feel like all hope is lost. Give them the pros and cons of adulthood and the future; don’t just laugh at their problems.”
