“A baby will grow to be an adult one day but that baby will never stop being your child” DK.
Most adolescents feel trapped living a life that doesn’t belong to them but again that they don’t know how to escape from. Teenagers go with the crowd only to realize later on in their adult life that they lived a life that wasn’t for them, leaving them with regrets and a sour taste of the most glorious and potentially most beautiful years of their lives. All teenagers experience a stage called Pathological Narcissism, and while they may appear to be “okay” and act like they have it all under control portraying a selfish, self-centered egocentric image, the reality is that a lot of teens are nowadays crying inside. Adolescents are fragile individuals, who might appear as though they’re pushing you away in their silent attempts to draw you closer, all your child want is for you to be closer and understand.
Giving space doesn’t necessarily mean “go away”.
