Ask a teenager and they'd all agree that it's hard to be 14. When minds were full of confusing thoughts, actions were all about attitude and arrogance and love was one big question. Almost anyone who has been 14 would agree that it was the best and worst of times. When life had no pressures, love never involved infidelity and responsibility just meant to be obedient.
