My Feelings Growing Up

I might mention my psychological trials during adolescence. All my life I had felt loved and wanted. Being the oldest grandchild, I received lots of attention from my grandparents and all the family, but adolescence being what it is, when I reached that age, I was terribly unhappy much of the time. My music always kept me doing interesting things and adulation from the community, but adolescence was something else. I never told anyone about my feelings, and my Mother would have been the last one I would ever confide in. I feel that students are lucky now because most schools have trained counselors on the staff that the young people can go to with their problems. All I needed to do was have someone I could go and ‘spill’ all my feelings. But, there was no one. But, I survived.
