#8: Keep Moving

“If you are going through hell, keep going” – Winston Churchill

As a teen you will encounter new situations and challenges, and it will be easy to get discouraged or overwhelmed. A small misstep, a slight from a friend, bad performance on a test … any of these may cause you to doubt yourself, or worse, stop trying and wallow in your misery. Your emotions are still developing and are sensitive and volatile.

No matter how hard things appear, remember the sun will still rise tomorrow. And a new day full of possibilities will be yours again. Your challenge or hurt, however insurmountable it may feel today, will get easier to handle. With time, you will wonder why you worried so much.

Develop the faith and confidence to keep moving. No matter what the world throws at you, this is one very powerful thing you can control.
