Drugs;- This can be real drugs to even prescription drugs in order to overcome an issue
that they are not able to deal with or control. Drugs can be introduced as a solution from
friends, relatives to family because they think they found help through them. Let it not be
an answer to your problems because I will let you know its distraction, if you can stop
please do, there is help and if I have not started using them please do not. You do not
want to get to a point where you can not think by yourself but with the help of Drugs.
Alcohol;- At eighteen you are able to find yourself or put yourself in position or places
where it would be available and with no control, with peer pressure you are definitely
going to drink and this can be a bad experience that you wont do it again or it could the
best experience of your life that you will want to do it again and again, when you can and
that can end you up in becoming an alcoholic maybe or in a very bad situation with this it
could be friends and people loosing their lives.
Bullying;- Here you can be the bully which could be okay to you but think if it was
happening to you that you were the one being bullied??? A question you should ask your
self? If you are being bullied this can be a sad thing to go through for you and your
family, it is how we come face to face with this issue. Hey I would say it’s a sad situation
and could lead to regret and death. I assure you no one wants to live a life of regret or as a
bully so lets be nice to one another!
Lack of a JOB;- This is a tough issue mostly if its hard to get a job since you just
graduated no experience and no vacancies, while as a young adult you have goals that
you would like to achieve maybe get a car, college, and maybe move out Yeah! But no
that will not happen without the Job.
Family Issues;- These can be from sibling rivalry, divorce or separation, or as a typical
eighteen year old you just do not want to follow the rules mmmm that is what we call a
normal family and all I have to say is that is going to be there in fact it was there before
you turned eighteen. Its just that you can now make sense of what is going on around you
very funny but very true.
Depression;- This is a serious medical illness, its not something that you have made up
in your head. What you need is not to ignore and think it will pass. There is help and
treatment, so please let us get you the help You need!
It happens to most eighteen year olds and you are not alone. So please don’t be!
Stress;- It’s a common thing that young adults go through but really I am going to say if
you are not paying Bills and you do not have a Family to take care of stop stressing and
get constructive cause I will call that being Lazy….. did you see how I brushed it off to
being Lazy yes its because you are Young to be Stressed!
Pregnancy;- Yes this can be a big issue depending on your determination, it can be the
end of your dreams or it could be the motivation to fulfilling your dreams as tough
independent person with responsibility. So here am not going to encourage it but I will
encourage the positive look out of it.
Peer Pressure;- Yes this is our friends, close encounters and those that could influence
our thinking or judgment on making decisions on what to do. This may be doing
something right or wrong. So here we really have to think hard and ask ourselves how it
is positively or negatively going to affect your life. I can give you a scenario where your
friends tell you hey come lets hang out we are going to play in the park and or yes that is
fun and you go, however later there is an idea that let’s go break into that store a get the
cool stuff that is in there maybe to sell or even use. Here is where your judgment comes
in and you got to think hard on what you got to do!
Dating Issues;- Yes we all know by then you all have to have someone and it can be a
challenging issue because it can be one who is older or younger but its how you go about
it. It can be challenging to you and most of all to a parent who has to see their young son
or daughter is dating and with this feeling there are going to problems and friction.
Rejection;- This can be through applying for a job that you want but you are not offered
even though you keep on trying, making friends, or anything that you want to be part of
but its not happening as you want.
