Dear Teenagers, Here’s What You Need to Know About Comparison

Dear teenager,

Have you ever struggled with comparison?

I think everyone does at some point in their lives.

I’ve had my own share of struggles with comparison and I wish I knew all the answers. But I don’t, and I don’t think anyone does.

Put Technology in its Proper Place (Teens in a Tech-Savvy World part 2)

As a younger child, I didn’t play video games, I rarely watched cartoons, and I didn’t have an iPad like most other kids I knew.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve grown used to more technology in my life. I have an iPhone, I watch TV shows on Netflix occasionally, and I’m currently writing on my family’s shared laptop.

Since I’m older now, and as our culture has developed even more, everyone’s lives have become more thoroughly saturated with the influence of devices and screens.

10 Tips to Break Your Technology Addiction (Teens in a Tech-Savvy world part 1)

You rub your strained, exhausted eyes and check the time. You’re shocked to discover that half an hour has already gone by since you first settled down with your phone, but you don’t want to pull away from your YouTube videos or mindless Instagram scrolling. 

You’re upset at yourself for wasting so much time, but you’re inwardly racking your brain for an excuse to stay on the couch and avoid doing the chores you should’ve done hours ago.
