i don't understand...
     i feel lonely yet everyone is around. i am surrounded by people who love me but I feel hated. I feel like the only one in the room. How am I feeling lonely when so many care about me? I am so confused.  Why do I feel alone when people are around? I am sad but happy. I am angry but calm. I am lonely but content.  I am talking but thinking about different things. I am worried but happy with the way things are going. Why?  I’m not sure…yet. Feeling alone when people are around…..mmm I don’t understand.

It's called adolescence.

Of course, giving it a name doesn't necessarily make it any less difficult. It merely suggests that, like all other stages in the life cycle, it will eventually end of its own accord. Indeed, when seen in retrospect, it ends much too soon. It should be savored. It must be endured. Therein lies the irony.

The good news? Your parents, your teachers, your heroes and heroines, the celebrities you watch on TV and the musicians you listen to on the radio, all of them and more have managed to survive adolescence. I did. You will, too.

The bad news? Twenty-five or thirty years from today, adolescence will likely return to haunt you yet again. Everyone will say you're going through your second childhood, but the confusion and pain will be little different. Then, as now, I suspect it's the price of growth.

I've often wondered if a caterpillar, tightly enclosed in its woven chrysalis, feels lonely, scared and confused just before it emerges as a butterfly? I know I would.

KimberlyAnn~
Those of us who have gone through those years and feelings, (and all of us have)
know them well~
Ron pegged it right ... he is a wise man~

You will emerge from that chrysalis he spoke of and spread your wings and fly~
