Please don't say that I don't know what it means to be stressed because I absolutely, 100 percent do.
Just because it is a different type of stress that you may not understand or physically see, it does not mean that it is not there.
When you tell me that I do not understand what you had to go through in your life, you are right; I don’t. However, you don’t have to experience the pressure that we have on us today, and it only increases with you telling us that we are no good, always head deep in technology, privileged and have no idea what it means to be stressed or have to work hard, or that we can’t do anything on our own and that we think that everything will just be handed to us.
The lack of confidence that kids, teens and young adults have today is only increasing based on society’s image that is pressed upon us to look and act a certain way. The increase in bullying — not just physically but cyberbullying that can come from anyone at any time. The increased pressure to do well in school and be as involved as you can because college and future employers only want the best of the best, so if you’re not the best, then you're screwed.
Then, you have to balance three hours of homework with those extra-curricular activities and find time to eat and sleep enough all so that you can do it again the next day.
