5 Negative Aspects of Teenage Relationships
1. Castles in the air, guys are mostly players:
Well, hormones are just another ball-game which can turn even the best into the worst. During the teenage years, relationships often lead to the building up of marvelous castles in the air as girls tend to believe that things might just last forever. Guys, often take things lightly and end up hurting people, which can often hurt most of the people around them.
2. Shift towards addiction:
Alcoholism and drug abuse often end up becoming a life post the painful breakup. As the relations don’t end up so well, teenagers end up going towards drugs as a way to find peace. It ends up hurting their lives even more.
As technology is progressing, crooks are finding better ways to harass the other person. Teenage is when the thought process gets clouded, and often wrong people are brought into life. We might never know the intention of the other person and this is when the risk of cybercrimes increases.
4. Getting hurt for the longer term:
The pain which is inflicted at the earlier stages of life can often hurt us in the long run. Some cuts are too deep, and are too harsh, that it can mutilate us for a very long time. Even future implications can be too murky, so it is better to stay away than hampering the future.
5. Career goes right out of the window:
The prospective career just goes right out of the window. Teenage is when a career should gain priority instead of matters of the heart. In the longer run, we must remember that it is the career that counts.
Relationships need the right time for them to be successful. Once when both are matured, settled, and can give enough time to each other, is when the relationship blossoms.
