Title: Some people think that the teenage years are the happiest times of most people’s lives. Others think adult life brings more happiness, in spite of greater responsibilities.
Discuss both these views and give your own opinions.
The issue of which brings more happiness, the adult life or the teenage years, has been provoked and engaged in a great many audience. People are being trapped in a dilemma. Some consider the former as the happiness times of most people’s lives whereas others prefer the latter. My personal perspective is that not until one is well into adult phrase with the psychological and physiological maturity can one get aware of the interpretation of life.
On one hand, having moved from adolescence to adulthood, people obtain rights of fully independent choice on their individual development paths. As is known, the primary mission of an adolescent is to accomplish his education with every periodic goal set, which, from psychological performance, leads them to vapidity. In the mean time, there is no need for a grow-up to get through any paths pre-established yet not confirming to their personal preference. The occupational choice is a good point in case.
Moreover, highly socialized in terms of self-consciousness and self-control, adults tend to make more reasonable decisions while younger people don’t specialize in managing their impulses. Consequently, the youth cannot avoid regretting what they have done and turn out to be disappointed. Besides, teenagers being emotionally immature is not only adverse to the moral values` formation but also denies them the rights and privileges of adults. That is, they have to depend on their guardians unwillingly who are obliged to care under some certain circumstances.
On the other hand, adults` privileges come along with responsibilities that they have to answer for all the consequences resulting from their actions, thus enhancing discipline and self-restraint to some extent. Yet the minor have more freedom to cultivate their potentials. What’s more, teens would suffer from financial burdens if they supported the family as most adults do. They can indulge in the novelty of the world, the pursuit of excitement and so on as they wish, even if the happiness is temporary and subjective.
Ultimately, despite all the responsibilities and obligations, I consider adult life brings more happiness due to the independence and physiological maturity as well as high socialization.
