Adolescence is the unhappiest time in most people's lives

From around 11 years old to approximately 18, people live a very specail period of their life. Usually, this period of time is called "adolescence". Some people think that is the unhappiest time in most people's lives. The reasons are as follows. Firstly, teenagers are known to be moody, insecure, argumentative, angst-ridden, impulsive, impressionable, reckless and rebellious. Secondly, teens have odd sleeping patterns, awkward growth spurts, acne and various unhealthy habits. Finally, they often fail to see the consequences of their actions and take more risks. All of these cause the problems, and make people's lives unhappy. However, from a biological perspective, adolescence should be the best time of life. Most physical and mental functions, such as speed, strength, reaction time, and memory, are at their peak during the teenage years. It is the time when foods taste best, appetite is heartiest, sleep is sweetest, and music is most seductive. The impact is not purely physical, for it is also in adolescence that new, radical, and divergent ideas can make the most profound impact on the imagination. Therefore some people believe it is the happiest time in their lives. People’s views vary from person to person. No matter , what difference, we all have to experience the adolescence as an average person. I believe that the earth will be stronger after raining days. So, why aren't we delighted to welcome the adolescence? Because, tomorrow, the sun also rises, as usual.
