I'm 18 and I'm still young.

A Story by Rassoul

to the young people, be strong.

I'm such a young soul, a young soul who has to take a lot of mature decisions at a young age. I have to take decisions about my current and my future life, like school, you've to choose what to study and depends on it you'll have your future job. You're not even sure if your decisions is wrong or right, you just have to decide because your decision will shape your entire future life. Isn't it weird? A person's mature life depends on an Eighteen years old kid's decision, word up.

They tell you what is wrong and what is right, they tell you what to eat, where to sit and what you should do about a lot of things when you're young, and one year later, when you're 'mature' enough as they say, you take your own decisions, wrong or right? who cares, as long as the results will only mess you up.

You've to choose the love of your life, the one who is going to live more than twenty years with you, the one who's going to share every moment with you and you've to decide if this person is right or wrong for you, your call.

You'll get into some relationships, real love or fake one you just have to go through it, you'll have a lot of heartbreaks, it is a normal thing for a teen but you're still young for all this pain. Pain changes people.

I'm eighteen, I'm still going through a lot of stuff to have more experience about everything, so when I take a decision, I hope it's right. I'm eighteen and I'm still young.

Our future is entirely shaped by our decisions and our character. We have to choose a lot of things, stick to them, and we have to learn that we will mess up in the process. Being young is the most powerful burden because you're oblivious to the future that you spend years preparing for. Exceptional writing.

القصة رائعه جدا و لكن لديك أخطاء في القواعد. أتمنى أن تصححها حتى لا تفقد القصه رونقها. مع ذلك القصة تبدي افكار المراهقين جميعا و هي حقا مؤلمة.

so well written :) decisions are the major part of life and when you're young and 18 as you say , decisions are the life that one is going to deal with. This piece is something every teenager has to give a look. thank you and cheers.

Well captured, and accurate. Here's a little secret from a 20 something who recently went through this: yes you have to make decisions, but what you decide isn't set in stone. Choices will change and you'll find yourself in crazy places doing things you never even knew existed. Enjoy the ride, it's about to get wilder.

You've summed up the confusion and problems of our teens in such tiny paragraphs! That's admirable. I liked this story.

I remember feeling just like this at 18. I'm 24 and I still feel this way. Its these years where you are expected to act like an adult when you don't even understand what that means yet. You are trapped in a state of being too old to be a child but too young to be taken seriously as an adult. Growing up was something no one was prepared for.
I think if you cleaned up your writing here you would have the beginnings of a short YA novel.

As teenagers, pressure is there from all sorts, school, family, friends, love life, etc..
But we also learn with anything that comes at us in our teenage years and have it as a memory, either good to remember or good to learn from.

I really liked your piece, reminded me of my teenage years, and oh boy what a ride has it been!

Thank you for sharing Rassoul :)
