A difference between a teenager’s life and an adult’s life is similar to the difference between a dream and a reality. A teenager’s life represents the plans whereas an adult life could be the execution of these plans. It is a debatable topic that which life is better.
Firstly, let us look at the adult’s life. Adults enjoy independence and power. For example, when a person is independent, he could be less answerable to the world. A person can even decide what kind of work he wants to do. However, as we know that power comes with greater responsibilities. Being an adult is not like walking in the garden. Adult’s life becomes monotonous after some time. Work and responsibilities make this age stressful at some point of time. Even though, having so much money in the bank account, adults hardly spend quality time with friends. In today’s busy life it is difficult to celebrate festivals with the family as each member of the family might be living in different places.
On the other hand, we have teenager’s life which is full of innocence and carelessness. Though in this age the world thinks you are immature to understand anything, this age does not bother about it. In this age everything looks challenging; for instance, convincing parents for an overnight outing with friends and saving pocket money to buy a favourite watch. Once these goals are achieved, they feel they have got everything. Teenagers do not need a heavy bank balance or designer clothes. They are happy with a ripped jeans and couple of good friends.
I believe any age which is full of dreams and hopes is always better. Teenagers accept life the way it is so they are certainly happier than those who constantly find reasons behind everything, which is ever ending process.
