One of the problems with our teen years is how much other people’s opinions matter to us. If someone tells us we are ugly or fat or not cool, it makes us miserable and can leave a scar for life. I know people in their 50’s and 60’s who are still carrying around messages they were told by others when they were 15 or 16. “You can’t sing. You can’t dance. You’re stupid.”
It will give you great freedom to enjoy your teen years and your whole life in general when you realize that “it’s their problem,” they are coming from their lower mind and all the influences they had in their lives. They are coming from fear.
When you realize this, you will be have much more fun. It’s also a good idea to start understanding who you are as a Soul. Don’t put it off until you are completely grown and enjoy your life now!
