Looking back on my high school and college years, a feeling of misunderstanding pops up into my memory. I didn’t feel like anyone understood who I was or what I really needed. No matter what my family or friends said or did, I was still the one misunderstood. Whether that was the case or not (it very well could have been all in my head), it still feels so real to me.
So in the second installment of Tough Topics, I’ll be talking about why it is totally normal that you do or have felt this way.

I believe that one of the main reasons why many high school and college students feel so misunderstood is because of the pressures put on them by society. Why do adults ask them to constantly what they want to do with their lives? Who is supposed to have that figured out at 15? I’ve changed my career path four times already and I’m only 25! It’s not realistic to have it all figured out.
And you know what? I put so much stock in the fact that I wasn’t understood by others when I myself didn’t even understand who I was.
So how can you move through this time in your life and make it out alive?
