It’s not easy being a teenager. From peer and media influences to parental and societal expectations, teens today experience pressures and stresses that previous generations have never had to deal with. More than ever, teens need to know that there are people in their lives who understand what they are going through. They need to hear that they are doing a good job and they have what it takes to succeed.
This book provides teens with positive words of encouragement and inspiration to let them know that everyone goes through hard times, but those times won’t last forever. It urges teens faced with a change or a challenge to look inside for the strength they need to keep going. It reminds them that it’s okay to be different, because it’s those very differences that make them unique and special. These reassuring messages will help teenagers find the courage and confidence to make the right choices, to accept themselves for who they are, and to keep believing in themselves and their dreams.
