Education 

"Isn't that the purpose of school? To make me happy with who I am?" whined the self-absorbed adolescent. No, dear child. What adults are paying for the school to do is to teach you skills and information. If your relationships with friends and family don't reflect baseline contentment with who you are (as a growing, changing, learning student), then you have two alternatives: (1) Hire a therapist to explore your emotional problems. (2) Learn to focus on something beyond the end of your nose, which is what, when you start doing it, allows you to be perceived as an adult (whether you start doing it at twelve or at forty). It's not all about me-me-me-me-me all the time. (The world is not just one great big blog.)
