Everyone tends to adapt and conform to what other people think is cool. Sometimes it’s hard to try and stand out though because others who think they are better than you are constantly judging, even though God created everyone as equal.

Injuries cause extreme pain, limit movements and depending on the severity, can require a large amount of time for rehab. The majority of regular people will have a negative response to any kind of injury. In the case of the athlete (especially at the professional or collegiate level) injuries can be devastating. There is no universal model as to what mental response an athlete will have when an injury occurs, for the most part these emotions are negative (Brehm, 2008).

Social isolation, poor housing, unemployment and poverty are all linked to mental ill health. So stigma and discrimination can trap people in a cycle of illness.

We have to learn from our mistake, do better and make sure it does not happen to us ever again. Making a bad or wrong choice has a solution of going through depression or regret later on in life. Especially, if you are a crazy, reckless and careless teen that is just worried about being popular, partying, and wasting a perfectly good life. Us, teens have been told that we are the future of this country and that our daily actions and choices can help us or destroy us in many ways. I tend to notice a lot about people’s life and I see their struggles with everything they choose to do without thinking it through.
