|ADOLESCENT INSECURITIES IN ADULTHOOD|
|You Again? Moving Beyond High School Insecurities
Julie Hanks, LCSW
Owner & Clinical Director
Few people feel neutral about their High School experience. You either loved it or experienced it as pure torture. Or a little of both. In the hit movie "You Again", an exaggerated comedy about coming face to face with the women who bullied or betrayed you in High School, audiences reflect on their own High School experiences. Whether you were popular or picked on, prom queen or band geek, the bully or the bullied, you've probably experienced some insecurities and heartaches of your own during adolescence.
First love, first betrayal, new freedom, shifting hormones, and changing body make adolescence a time of insecurity and uncertainty that can resurface throughout adult life. As you shifted from family focus to peer focus, attempting to establish your own identity, adolescence experiences and emotions were potent then, and now. If a colleague gets a promotion at work that you think you deserve, it may dredge up the disappointment of not winning the student body election. Finding out that a trusted adult friend has broken a confidence may remind you of an earlier betrayal of trust when your high school so-called "best friend" spread a rumor about your throughout the school.
WATCH VIDEO & READ Julie's recommendations for keeping these adolescent insecurities in the past.
