We live, we breathe, we overcome problems, we face challenges everyday of our young adult lives, and we are human beings.

As teenagers, we grow and we live and we explore our lives. We face the toughest mental challenges, for example, searching for identity and our place in the world. These can be hard times for all.

These challenges are not easy to overcome. There are times when a tiny bump in the road can seem more like a hill. There are times when our problems can seem more like a circle, forever in motion.

Personally, challenges do help us, as teenagers, to grow and develop into mature young adults.

These challenges and pressures are hard to overcome, though when we reach our potential and gain success from finishing what we started, we feel enormous weight lifted off our shoulders. We gain courage and feel good about ourselves; we are inspired by our success and inspire others with our success.

Life is not perfect, one of the biggest challenges of all in fact, we seek advice and compassion from other people, friends and family, to help us through the tough times and through our greatest fears.

The experiences we make for ourselves and the experiences given to us by other people are sure to help us through the hard times because of the fact that our minds are forever changing.

The fears and emotions, overcoming depression, reality checks, identity searching, finding a place in the world and even the little things like doing well in school and exams are all pressures put on us and problems and challenges we have to face during adolescence.

When we succeed, we feel good, we emit this sense of happiness that can spread and inspire other people to do the same.

We all grow up, we all have our problems but the more we overcome, and the more we see that reality is not such a bad thing after all.

All of us grow up to be better people, there's no doubt about it, and it is through these challenges and experiences that we are able to do so.

Our sense of belonging increases when we actually go out into what seems like the big bad world, looking for challenges. The vibes and thrills that we get could light up the world on the very darkest day.

You can learn a lot from yourself and other people. You really have to believe in yourself, know you can do it, know that you are a special person and know that whatever you do and whatever reality throws at you, you can overcome it.

It all comes from inside your heart, your compassion, the love you feel for yourself and the love that you feel for others. It all comes from the inside.

Challenges can be good things, challenges can be bad things, but what each and every one of us can do is help a friend in need and most of all help yourself.

Life is positively wonderful and exciting, even with all the ups and downs and in betweens. After all we are here for a good time not a long time. Enjoy it while you have the chance.
