Being A Teenager.



Being a teenager, for some people, isn't easy. It's different for a lot of people my age. But I'm going to talk to you about what being a teenager is like for me.

I have two sisters and two brothers. Both my brothers are moved out and in their own home. However one of my brothers ended up living next door to me. LIKE HOW DID THAT END UP HAPPENING?! Any ways my older sister just moved out so now it's just me and my little sister living at home with my parents. To be fair and completely honest with you I've only recently turned 13, so I don't have that much "experience" being a teenager. So far I can tell you that growing up you gain so many responsibilities. Such as: knowing when your homework needs to be handed in [because that's not your parents responsibility anymore] Also taking care of your phone, room, technology, personal hygiene. See what I mean?

All I can say is being a teenager is a big step into reality. Dealing with things like anxiety and stress is a big part of my life as well. So I think the next few years of my life are going to be interesting.

Welcome!


Hey! My name is Tia. I'm attempting to start a blog all about anxiety, how I deal with it. I mean I know there are many different types of anxiety and the way people deal with it but I'm not going to get to that much detail at the moment. Here's a little background story of me. Just so you can get to know me a bit so I don't just jump in with some random rubbish about anxiety. 

I did originally have a YouTube Channel. Or started one anyway, I ended up deleting all the videos because I was scared loads of people at school would find out and shame me. I found out I was suffering from anxiety at the beginning of Year 7. I started having these random thoughts and they started turning into scenarios in my head. Not long after that I started crying and having random thoughts about how bad life was. It would distract me from my work in school and I would often stop during a lesson and just side-track.

Then I realised I had anxiety. I found out a couple of my close friends had it too and we talked to each other about it and supported each other. A few months later when I went to Wales, with my family on holiday, I was scared to go out to the shops round the corner or the park down the road with my sister. Purely because I had social anxiety as well. I would avoid going out or if my parents asked if I wanted to go to the park with my sister I simply said NO. I hated myself. I hated the way I looked. The way I talked. Having friends, who I knew supported me whenever I needed to let out my stress, was a big help to me whenever I felt down or upset or stressed.

ANYWAYS. I hope you enjoyed this little (BIG) story about me.
