Depression is such a strong thing these days. I'm depressed and I am one of the lucky ones, I have a job and a boss that looks after me yet I still can't still beat it.
Because of people insulting them .And they just have low self confidence. Andd I think if they had more self confidence they would be more happy.
Being a teenager in this new generation, I think it's mostly because of self dissapointment and being bullied by judgmental peers. I myself haven't been bullied much but the times I have it feels like you are the dirt under their shoe and that no one in the world likes you, otherwise they would have stuck up for you and remained your friend. I am not a victim of bullying though and either are any of my friends (that I know of) because we all respect each other and stay in our tight group of friends. Depression is really sad, especially when I know people who are my friends who feel so alone in the world. I mainly think teens in this new generation are depressed because everyone is examined under a microscope these days and they started doing that to themselves and they didn't like what they found.
Things just go wrong in life. Theres more drug and alchol abuse and gangs. There are many cruelty things like how the one Boy suicided because his room mates vidoe taped him having Sex with another boy/guy/man. Things just go wrong and we don't know what to do with ourselves...we just don't know what to do...
Problems at school, friends, no friends, life at home, etc.
They try to fit in but then some people tell them that they really don't and they do everything they can to be like the "cool" kids
Blame bullies and the media :) People are bullied every day and the media does not help since the body image is always thin which is in.
