I beg to differ, the best years of my life were the years from childhood.

It seems like it only gets worse everyday. I'm still in the teenage emotional stage... it's really bothersome.

Psh, forget pregnancy. Now menopause, there's the real emotional train wreck.

In all seriousness though, I don't know that my emotions were too much different when I was a teenager, compared to now. I'd say I'm a little bit better about dealing with them, but that's about all. I've always had anger issues, and it's no different now than it was back then, insofar as getting angry is concerned.

Agreed. There really is nothing like the realization that you aren't responsible for a damn thing that goes on in your daily life. On the other hand, a paper route cut my childhood short; frikkin' jobs...

uhm. The only different I can note in myself over the last 6-7 years is myself falling into a bigger and bigger hole of cynicism....

However, I do try to stay positive in any situation. I just have very low expectations to begin with...

Anyways... Humans are interesting because we have emotion.

I still don't understand why people consider your teenage years to be your golden years. Is it because you have no responsibility? No commitment besides your basic schooling? As far as my years went, they were sorta the most horrific times I had.

I'd shoot myself instead of reliving high school.

Personally I share your opinion but I think that depends on the individual; there were people who did have a good time in high school and also those for whom it was torture. It's probably just a matter of how well you fit in and how difficult you found studying to be.

Who said that ? For most people teenage years is (generally) more the most difficult years of your life than the contrary. For example, in teenage years your body grow and change and it's not always easy to handle (puberty etc...).

For me the golden years is more around the 20-35 than 12-20.

Agree
Most of the time you need to keep your cool whenever you feel like you're life and surrounding are changing, it still happens with me even reaching this age. Everyone needs to adjust themselves again and again, but your character and principles are what matters the most

Hm, well, the heightened emotions of the teenage years can be both a boon and a curse. You're changing a whole lot, your head's always in turmoil, and life can be hell just from things that adults would find trivial; yet at the same time, as some guy said it, "I've never made friends like I did when I was 12." There's the kind of reckless abandon in youthful actions that self-aware and often cynical adults just can't compare.

I personally feel like I've wasted much of those years being too shy and too "responsible" for my own good, and I'm just, well, look at my age!

(IMO)The best years of your life are your older wiser ages. At that point, emotions are nothing but "sticks and rocks". Yeah, It depends on the individual. But I think the usual trend is age=experience=wisdom=calmness="peace-like" emotion. Compared to that, teenage years are the exact opposite: its the period of emotions. To have none, is to *not* be a teenager.

True true, I think everyone experience things differently :/
But it just that normally teenage age is when you're at your full rebellious & wild state
It's basically where all the fun started
Or not

Depends

Mood swings anyone? I was angry all the time not too long ago, but I've been pretty happy with myself for the past few months.

At 13/14 i was mostly confused, dont remember liking being in the center of attention or immature

15/16 am here right now, not angry at all, unless you wake me from sleeping before i get up XD



@Lilithium: Teenagers = partys,geting drunk,braking rules, being wild thats why some say that, but from my point of view they are the worse years ever .

Pfft; happy to have been the exception, I was on my own at 16, thankfully; married my hubby when I was 19 and had my son at 20, which is also when we bought our house.

I got all my stupid teen angst crap out of the way back when I was 12-15

I would never want to return to my childhood, but I seem to be in a very slim minority with that sentiment.

There are people with no emotion, actually. Parts of their brain are lost due to a traumatic accident or a necessary surgery, and it completely impairs their emotion. The results are actually quite interesting. We'd all think that with no emotion we'd likely be more effective overall, as we'd be less bothered by things and perhaps more rational. However, that's not the case. In one case that I read about, a man who had lost his "emotion center" of his brain ended up getting fired from his job because he was totally inefficient. He apparently could no longer prioritize tasks - he couldn't determine whether making coffee was more important than submitting a report that was due in an hour.

Why? Emotion factors into more elements of our life than we take notice of. We know what to prioritize because we feel the fear of making errors. We can sympathize with and understand others based on emotion. Our entire foundation of motivations and interactions is largely based upon emotions, if you think about it. It's rather interesting.

Teenage is the stage to experience lots of things, some can handle it, some can't. With the pregnancy and menopause is the same, but the difference is that in those stages is probably that the woman has reached a high level of matureness and that helps to make it more bearable ( well, in some cases).
true women can't physically function right without feeling emotions because many are stimulated by hormones, without those well you can kiss the human race goodbye pretty much

Try thinking about if we didn't have any emotional changes through adolescent and teenage years. Now THAT will be a mess.
