That depends. I can't spoil here too much, but take it this way:
You have 4 middle school girls, one is like a super famous pop star, envied/loved/hated by everyone, but instead of having guards or other people protecting her, she always by herself deals with her problems, other two are enrolled in a Police like service, fighting crime and saving people, even though they should only save cats help lost kids.. and the last one lives a normal life, hangs out with friends, but occasionally ends up in danger, but always is saved.

And now analyzing it more deeply, first:

As her power grown, people started attacking/hating her, so she distanced herself from others and even though she remained friendly, she didn't made any real friends, till she met Kuroko.

She seems to value lives of other more than her own.

This noble reasons might have something to do with her worship of the "Oujo-sama" class. Also was solitary, Kuroko and Saten were most likely her first real friends and Saten later introduced her own friends and helped her fit in the collective.

In AC she lived an ordinary life, had lots of friends and didn't had problems to fit in society. Fascined by the supernatural, she found lots of Urban Legends and is part of people that explore them. It gets her sometimes to a lot of problems, but always gets away. She changed a bit once she met Mikoto and is now also trying to be "hero like her".
Now:

Her attempts to encourage others and her reckless use of powers made her a lot of enemies, that constantly threatens her. Is extremly inteligent in general and has a strong faith in her powers, but is reckles because of it. Never got seriously hurt or injured others. She constantly abuses her powers and is doubtfull if she would be able to handle herself without it.

Is able to live a "normal" life when she is with her friends, but aside to that she is married to her job (or oneesama)

After constantly being in the shadow of Kuroko and Saten, she is slowly becoming stronger and independent in both of her lives. She is slowly able to make new friends on her own and handle herself in the Judgement job even without help from Kuroko. She has really strong will when it comes to protecting her friends. She is great with computers and might know a thing or two that others don't.

She started trying to help others, though she is not able to do much, at least tries to cheer her friends up. but still remained reckless and does not cares if she gets into danger, but cares for others more than for herself. Her Urban Rumors hunts gave her a lot of knowledge about AC and is really questionable how much does she really knows.
And now from the past and present we can predict the "future". You said, that

So I can suppose you were reffering to the future in which everything remains in the same pace as it is now.

If she does not have any change of hearth and she keeps distancing herself from her friends, soon there will be noone to help her and she will be left with nothing but her powers. She never got herself into any real problems nor ever experienced failure (add to it her childish behavior), If her power was to ever fail, she is a goner. If that does not happen, she will become normal (maybe a bit childish) person when she grows up

She will most likely become part of Antiskills or military in future and will be really good at it. There is a chance for the Mikoto-route, but even that does not gets her a normal life.

If she does not tries to do more than she can handle, she will become one day a great person with a lot of friends and skills. But she will have to make a decision one day - to continue her Judgement job (and become someone like Konori) or make a family (and live a normal life.)

Add to it a stable past and I doubt there will be something she will not be able to move on. But if she does not realize her limits, or learns a bit of responsibility, her reckles actions and the fact she gets into more danger each time, will get herself killed and not even her luck will help her. Aside to that, it depends on whenever she gets powers or not and what kind of life she decides to life, but she will also become a great person one day.
TL;DR…

I understand, thank you.

They really gone through that kind of reality in such young age.

And as Touma commented in this episode, "the academy city never gets boring".

I didn't actually finish season 1 of the anime due to the 'differences' from the source content, so I'm pleasantly surprised by how good episode 1 is. Maybe I'll actually finish the season this time around.

I'm not a major Index/Railgun fan, and I don't know a lot about any of the major stuff after the 3rd arc except for glancing looks at the franchise, but for some reason Railgun is more appealing to me than Index (at least with what I've read). Which is why I hope that at least this arc will be done justice.

EM feilds are not something that is remotely easy to do in your head.
Well, honestly, if I had the power to manipulate electricity I would have paid MUCH more attention in physics classes.
