Why Do People Change As They Get Older
The brain is the most misunderstood part of our bodies, even with today’s technology we do not understand nearly well enough how the brain really functions. I find it very interesting how the majority of people’s interests and lifestyles are very similar according to their ages, one reason for this without a doubt is your brain chemistry changes as you age. Your brain stems age just like your bodies age as the years go by, the brain stem cells regeneration declines as we age. Some of the ways the majority of people change as they become older are amazingly similar for most people, stop and consider different ages in your own family and how different each age group’s interests and personality are. One thing we all share is living with anxiety, this article is focusing on how our anxiety changes from childhood to the terrible teens.
Children To Teenagers
It is only natural life becomes so much more difficult from childhood to the terrible teens, many people use the excuse for the crazy moods teenagers experience on hormonal changes. This might have some effect on how teenagers experience life, but I have a theory the medical professionals have never suggested. My theory is teenagers lives are so crazy because their anxiety has become more severe since childhood, I know from my own experience my anxiety levels became much more severe and also I developed more anxiety disorders during this time in my life. Anxiety and panic attacks started happening for me more frequently and lasting much longer, other things I can remember during this part of my life are.
Higher Level Severity
Needed Daily Routine
What The Teenager Is Experiencing
My parents often told me these are the best years of your life, enjoy them while you can. I have news for any adults reading this article with teenagers, anyone who survives their teenage years without any severe emotional damage is one very lucky adult. Adult anxiety is nothing compared to what you experience as a teenager, these are the years you are under the most peer pressure of your entire life. It is true anxiety often does not debilitate people until they are adults, but the reason for this is how well you get through your teenage years. There is not enough space in this article to list all the symptoms teenagers experience, but I will attempt to share with you the ones which were the most severe for me.
New Experiences Major Trigger
Physically Feeling Sick
Muscle Aches & Pains
Mood Changes Out Of The Blue
If a teenager does not learn how to deal with their childhood disorders they will experience them during their teens as well, the symptoms will usually be much more severe. Some even experience new disorders, at this time their brain chemistry is changing especially the part of the brain which controls their emotions. Unless they have a very close bond with their parents usually they will not share their feelings and thoughts with them. This is the reason why parents need to catch their children’s emotional issues early in their childhood, this often prevents major issues during this period of their lives. When they have good coping and relaxation skills they will adjust much better, why I stressed childhood anxiety in my article last week.
What Are The High- Risk Factors
Did you know some people are higher at risk than others for the severity of their emotional issues during this time in their life, no wonder my emotional health was such a nightmare? Anxiety is high in both sides of my family, explains why my father was so abusive which had an enormous effect on me. I have been told this was my trigger to jump start my childhood emotional issues, I am not blaming my father for how he was and I have forgiven him knowing it was not totally his fault. By the way, my father has become very mellow in his old age. My mother also experiences emotional issues, she is more of a worrying and not the abusive type. Needless to say maybe but my three younger brothers also experience emotional issues, oddly we all seem to experience our own personal symptoms.
Extra Sensitive Personality
High Stress Lifestyle
Poor Support System
What Can You do
Despite my own high-risk factors I have improved my own life and emotional issues, it has taken me most of my life to learn to cope well enough to function in society today. I am writing my heart out in these articles in hope to help as many people as possible, between people struggling themselves and people who love them possibly my articles will reach the ones who needs my help. If you have a child or teenager who is experiencing emotional issues, you do not have to feel helpless. There are more things you can do then you might realize, these are some of the things which would have made a huge difference in my life so add them to your life as much as possible.
