When Bad Things Happen

"Where is the moment we need at the most
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
They tell me your blue skies fade to grey
They tell me your passion's gone away
And I don't need no carryin' on

You stand in the line just to hit a new low
You're faking a smile with the coffee to go
You tell me your life's been way off line
You're falling to pieces every-time
And I don't need no carryin' on

Cause you had a bad day…"
     -Daniel Powter 2005, "Bad Bay"

These lyrics show only give a taste of what its like to have a really bad day. As a teenager, bad things happen all the time. It isn't controllable — there are so many things that are just so dangerous to mess around with. There are all kinds of problems to face, such as relationships, friends, homework, grades, and even family problems. It seems like one after another, problems happen. Right after one problem is fixed, another one starts up again. They seem so aggravating, but the sad thing is, they're unavoidable. Trying to make things better doesn't seem to help; it usually only makes things worse. Setting out and saying, "today will be a good day," makes you somewhat overconfident, which usually results in unfulfilled satisfaction. So what is there to do?

Forget about it. The fact that you can identify with this post ensures that you're normal — that having a bad day is normal. Don't think the world's always against you, because the fact is 99% of the teenage population feels the exact same way. Sometimes we have really bad days, and some times we don't. The important thing is that you recognize that having a bad time is normal and that although it may not seem like it, everybody has bad days; stressing out over them isn't going to help.
