Teen Angst: Is It Normal?

Most of the time, those rapid and intense mood shifts are a normal part of adolescence. But sometimes, mood swings can signal a more serious problem. Causes of Teenage Mood Swings Mood swings during adolescence are partially due to biology.

The teen years are often painted as “the best years of your life,” but let’s face it, they can be plenty rocky. Some teens up to 1 in 8 develop depression. Watch for.

If you’re the parent of a young teen with intense mood swings, researchers have good news. Those emotions are probably normal and should calm down as your child moves through adolescence. But if. The major causes which can lead to irrational mood swings in teenagers are: Irrational Mood Swings in Teenagers Caused Due to Changes in Hormones Being a significant time of change in every teen’s life, puberty starts in American girls at around 10 – 14 years of age while in American boys it is a little delayed at 12 – 16 years.

It’s perfectly normal for teens to be moody, irritable, overly sensitive, and withdrawn. After all, this is a developmental period where both their mind and body are growing rapidly and the changes are physically and mentally taxing. But, as a parent witnessing your teenager’s mood swings, it’s common to worry that they may have depression.

Teenage mood swings are known to occur and that’s very normal. I see my teens going through such mood swings too and it does get me angry at times, but because I know it’s a passing phase, and something all parents have also gone through, I understand and let it be. “An important message to teens, parents, and teachers is that temporary mood swings during early adolescence might actually be normal and aren’t necessarily a reason to worry.” But for some teens. Fact Checked Determining normal teenage behavior is often a daunting parental task because teenagers deal with rapid developmental changes causing mood swings, odd behavior and emotional confusion. The teenage years are a time of turmoil and stress for some.

Any notable deterioration in behavior or mood that lasts two weeks or longer, without a break, may indicate major depression. Children and adolescents can also suffer Dysthymic Disorder, or minor depression. In this type of presentation, symptoms can appear for more days than not, for at least one year. Domains.

The difference between teen moodiness and a teen with a mood disorder can be assessed by three factors: trigger, intensity, and length. It’s normal for teens to be moody for an appropriate reason. The reason might be a breakup, grounding or.

They are torn between being a young child and being somewhat grownup, and much thought and sudden mood swings are really very normal and nothing to worry about.

  • داکترصاحب محترم. شما واقعا عالی هستید. اگرمیتوانستم یک کتاب درباره شما مینوشتم. یک جهان تشکر ازین ویدویوی اموزنده شما. بسیار موضوعات زیاد را درمدت ۵ دقیقه تشریح کردین. بسیار عالی. امیدوارهستم که ویدیوهای اموزنده در چینل یوتیوب تان به نشربگزارین. بازهم تشکر

  • So how do I know then it’s depression or just a mood swing?. I maen I’m supposed to feel sad.. some times..but like. Idk I’m just confused.

  • Anyone else with a mom that doesn’t believe in mood swings and teen angst and even if u show her this vid she’s gonna say don’t make anything an excuse to be sad for no reason

  • Apperently since I’m 16 I feel like an adult handling life problems already..and I’m mostly angry from time to time but it’s not easy to keep it at low level.

  • 1:09 In my personal experience of mixed episodes, it’s not feeling simultaneously elated/happy and depressed/sad. It’s having racing thoughts and lack of sleep (like mania), but the racing thoughts are negative, unpleasant, uncomfortable, and anxious. It’s like the worst of both worlds.

  • I appreciate this video. Thank you.

    However, it also hits me hard. Ugh… Bipolar disorder is so difficult to understand, even when you have it. Explaining it to others is even harder… My bipolar started at a very young age… ��

  • honestly, i’m already 18 and already know most of this stuff but seeing these videos explaining it reassures me a lot because it’s easy to forget how normal this whole deal is and that it’s not just me making stuff up…

  • As a teenager with clinically diagnosed depression and and generalized anxiety disorder i think we really need to stop confusing regular teen angst with actual moderate-to-severe mental health disorders. As a trans dude, i also expirience really bad dysphoria quite often and I belive that’s also something that really shouldn’t be minimized by passing it off as teen angst. When you see a teenager expiriencing mood swings or general sadness, anger or apathy quite often, whether you’re related or not, check in with them. Make sure they’re okay. It’ll help a lot. I really dont want to offend the creators of this video,but watching things like this just makes me a little pissed off because, to be honest, I’m a person who expiriences a lot of self hatred quite often and, although i know it’s not supposed to be, this video almost feels like it’s kind of appropriating those feelings into something normal. If you’re experiencing any depression symptoms, please go see a therapist. It’ll help you millions.

  • I don’t think I have depression but I think it’s more of gender Dysphoria. I was handed a paper that was required to go home to make sure my information was still correct, female didn’t look right to me, it made me feel upset, anxious and self conscious about my gender. My mom passes it off as hormones and my dad actually bothers to listen to me. It also sucks to have a mother who doesn’t support my interests and hobbies and who probably wouldn’t support me much if I told her.

    I’m just in a crappy situation with my life at the moment.

  • the counslor saw my sacrs and cuts recent one and she called me down to the office and i pass out go to the hospital and of corse with my freekin luck they saw all my scars all of them and theres millions best part my parents knew and dident care

  • I couldn’t have that emotion because I was abused by my stepfather so fear was more prevalent in my childhood depression and suppression was more like it

  • A good hearted person you are as you seeks to heal the brains �� of others & being u urself a teenager, currently I’m 16 & I too sometimes agonise from agitation but now as I’m been learning, fostering I know how to ensnare well being CALM, serene!! It’s all personal deep rooted to ourselves!!

  • I totally relate to you! Never even knew there are people that feel happy or fine when just doing nothing. I also never know how to say how I am feeling when somebody asks. The more I question how I feel I feel even worse.

  • I could talk to my self and start laughing at my jokes then laugh at myself pretending to explain to someone who’s not even there.

  • She explained nothing in this video, she makes me want to kill myself, holy shit.
    All she did was name 4 disorders, and how to fix them in a scientific way instead of actually taking
    her time to make her script understandable for the average person.

  • I’ve had most of these symptoms but was diagnosed with ADHD and now borderline.. can you make a video sharing the differences between adhd and bipolar mania?

  • I was depressed in high school. Even in Elementary school I had anxiety. I believe that I had Bipolar 2 then. I’m 47 now. Thanks for the video!

  • I talked to my friends, to my teacher, to my parents and to the school’s psychologist. They all didn’t believe me and my friends left me since “I’m always talking about my problems”. I just don’t know what to do now, I mean, I’m feeling like this for nearly two years but I thought “it’s just a phase” (what everyone said at that time and also said when I talked to them).

  • I remember trying to open up about my depression to my head of year in high school but they kept telling me to “grow up” and to “get over it coz I was being ridiculous “

  • Thanks for this video. What really concerns me is that not only is teenage depression and anxiety on the rise, but there doesn’t seem to be anywhere online to really talk about like there used to be with message boards and newsgroups. The community tools on YouTube and Instagram just aren’t up to the task.

  • AT LEAST 1 out of every 10 people deal with #MentalHealth issues, so even if you don’t it’s a guarantee that you know someone who does. #YouAreNotAlone! ��
    https://youtu.be/aaYuXR5X9ro

  • Watching a lot of videos like this I realise I do have a really good life. I am very fortunate to say that and to not have depression or anxiety (as I know of) or any other mental health issues. I don’t know exactly how to deal with people around me as I don’t know their mental state but I try to just be as nice and caring as possible and if I happen to someday find out about someone I know being depressed I will research what I can do and help them as much as I can. But the fact that I am this happy is scarying me a little. I hear everywhere around me that I am going to go through hard times and I see so many people have mental health issues and I just don’t wanna be like them but society is telling me that I am gonna have those issues myself. I know I might not have it, but I know I will have to go through tough times, and I try to focus on the good time I have now and appreciate it and at the same time educate myself so I’m prepared for the harder times. I will also try to use my advantage of being happy to help others as much as I can without my own life getting bad.
    I know this was a mess of just me discussing my own life with myself but If someone has any tips for me or how to help others I would deeply appreciate it. I would also love any input or opinions and would love to discuss important topics such as mental health.

    I feel like an important thing to talk more about is the fact that you are indeed allowed to be happy and to say it out loud. Just because other people are feeling sad doesn’t mean you aren’t allowed to say you’re happy, as long as you don’t look down on other people for not being.

    I am fortunate to be happy, not taking for granted and allowing myself to be. I am not hiding the fact because it’s important to know that you are allowed to feel happy in the world we live in today, but at the same time caring deeply and truly about the people who’s not as fortunate as me. Sending my love to you. ❤️

  • I do relate! I definitely often just feel sad without any reason, you explained it so well in this video! I can’t really remember a time when i genuinely felt fine while doing nothing.

  • I feel like a worthless piece of shit everyday, my mom says it’s normal but is it normal for an 11 year old to want to die? I haven’t had any signs of going through puberty, so I don’t think it’s normal for me to want to end my life, lay in my bed after school (and do nothing), not doing anything social or active and try to hurt myself. Everyone in my life is telling me that “it’s just hormones” and “I feel sad too sometimes” but I’m tired of it, im tired of everything life has to offer. I’m done with life.

  • Today I felt sad for no reason and I started crying in front of the whole class I thought and still think that I’m useless nobody cares about me and I hate everyone but nobody actually laughed told me I’m a very baby in a boy btw and I usually never show my emotions.When I told my mom she stared laughing and said it’s stupid to be sad for no reason which made me even more sad can someone tell me what to do

  • Okay, I have an honest question. Does anyone else list off the mental issues they have? I do. Alot. And its not me trying to get attention. I HAVE these mental health issues and I struggle with them greatly. I guess I just feel like I need to remind people what they got themselves into and I act the way I do for a real reason. Is this just me?

  • Honestly this gives me some comfort cuz its good to know that ” i am not alone” and its normal in this stage of life

    How about you?

  • I wish my friend would try and help me the way yours did, I tried telling theme and they thought I was just joking around and did nothing, ever since I’ve not told any one

  • Me and my mom laughed so hard at the “remember the time your mom made your favorite breakfast and for no reason at all you freaked out and yelled at her?”, We were saying stuff like “mOm! hOw dARe yoU maKe mY FaVoRitE BrEakFAst! HNNNNNG!”

  • I feel sad/empty very often… I feel like my “normal” state is empty (or low-key despair some periods). I do think I probably have some kind of illness though, because I have a ton of symptoms (including not wanting to live), but since it started (so the last 4-5 years I think) I was always like “yeah, it’s just cause I’m a teenager”. I’ve only started admitting it may be more recently

  • Wow, You shared very good information. My uncle had suffered from this problem. He was total upset during this. He went to many hospitals. But the result was not good. Then, Someone told him about planet Ayurveda. He went to Planet Ayurveda & got his treatment started. Now he is fine. If you have this type of problem or any other type of health problem. you should go to Planet Ayurveda.

  • I’m 10 and I’m getting lots of changes in my body and I feel sad for no reason and my sister (who is 14) says that it’s normal and she also had it when she was my age

  • I get depressed anywhere, anytime, i told my parents about it and they didn’t give a damn fuck,especially at school, i instanly go from happy,confident to a extremely sad, furious and shy my mood changes instantly,when i see thay everyone is enjoying life i feel much more worse,it is a fucking nightmare and i live in it everyday

  • Reminds me of some painfully dark and confusing episodes at high school. As a teacher with BPD2, this video is very helpful. I want to be there for any students with mental illness. Thank you Warrior 1 ����

  • IT was a living nightmare! She even left my kid’s and I on Christmas to fulfill her sexual thirst.
    That was the final nail in the coffin.
    Its our four children and I from here on! Not like she cares about them anyways.
    I felt more ALONE being married than before I met her and was single. No REGRETS thou i have 4 beautiful kid’s and the NIGHTMARE IS FINALLY OVER!
    If your in a relationship with someone that has bipolar remember THIS.
    You also need to take care of yourself TOO!

  • Ha yeah it’s funny I almost never feel completely at rest or calm but my friend on the other hand is like your boyfriend says that she’s“ happy” and I do kinda get a bit jealous almost and wonder how it feels to be at ease and not worry constantly and feel like everything will fall apart in a matter of seconds

  • At one point in my life, I would just feel sad and want to cry when I was just doing nothing (like you said)… and I think I’ve gotten better, or I did, but now I feel like I could start falling back into that hole of depression I had for months.

  • Sometimes I have so much energy I just want to scream as loud as I can �� I’m not self diagnosing though that is smelly so um

    I’m not bipolar ����

  • Yh if I just sit down and do nothing I’ll cry because I’ll think I’m worthless so I’ll try to commit suicide and I have to have counselling because of it

  • Last year had mental breakdown struggling Bipolar Disorder type 2 also experienced Psychosis symptoms again first time was diagnosed.

  • When my day get started in the morning and get up out in my bed,and do all the things with a happy mood. But after all suddenly i felt sad and sad till the end of the day. Then next day i felt guilt in myselft with no reasons. Then i cried alone. And the other next day im so much happy with energetic feelings. Feels like so excited but i am not. I dont know.☹������

  • I just hate talking about my self changes and emotional changes, i breakdown as soon as i tell anyone. Im just not the type of person who cries so im scared if otheres will look at me differently.

  • Running through my house alone, chipper, I look in the mirror and say wow! I feel great! I look awesome! I’m amazing, then i go out for a walk! Wow that was amazing! Then I think about my mom, she’s great! I hope she lives long enough to see me do all the things I’m putting off, I hope she doesn’t pass away before then; then I think about losing her, and drink myself into a stupor. Rinse and repeat

  • Im depressed and i think that i do have depression since i was 8 or 9 but im not sure what to do since in my country mental health is such a “taboo” subject that im scared to tell my parents since im not sure how will the react… what should i do?

  • I just feel empty. When I’m with friends I’m actually happy and I look forward to things but I’m always on my phone or listening to music because I’m paranoid or sad or I think myself into a rage. But sometimes I’m happy but it kind of drifts away from me after I have been doing something. It varies so much I can’t really classify myself

  • I told my parents I had depression and they said your just moody. 2 years later I told them I wanted to kill my self and my mom was like why you thinking like that and then everyone took me seriously.

  • Sometimes I laugh very hard without reasons,, sometimes I get dippressed without reason,,, I dont know why and iam just 15 years old

  • I can’t tell my mom about depression when I talk to my friends they laugh my mom on the outside is nice but when we go home she abuses me

  • Wait. I didn’t realize it’s not normal to NOT feel like your boyfriend? Like I thought everybody just feels that like rush of sadness when you aren’t distracted.

  • I don’t know if I would consider myself being lucky but when I told my parents that I was depressed and feeling suicidal I found out my mum was depressed and suicidal and she has been helping me through it for the last year know

  • You’re helping me understand myself so much, to the point of realization that I need help. I am now working up the courage to start my search for a doctor and therapist, in hopes that I can start feeling normal. I’ve struggled my whole life, until I accidently found your videos and from there you’ve explained nearly everything since I was young. Thank you for reaching out to so many people!

  • Hey, I’m a teenager and I think I’m dealing with depression I think, I can relate to so many symptoms, but what if it is just hormones I think a lot, and I’ll feel even worse because what if it is, I’m so mad at myself for screwing everything up, I’ve talked to some friends about this, and I want to talk to my parents about it but they keep saying things about me screwing my life up, and being disrespectful because my grades are bad and I don’t do much. I don’t know what to do honestly

  • depressive signs

    just a moment ago i just cut ties with most of my friends and 2 month ago i cut ties with my only 3 irl friends
    i can’t go to physician or something bcs my family would probably say wtf r u talking about u r all fine stop complaining u r what would hurt you and rant about their own problems sip
    idk wether i have bipolar disorder but im likely to have bipolar 2 bcs of my mood swings…

  • How do you actually go to your mom and say that you wanna visit a phycologist?! Bc it’s like accepting and saying out loud you think you are mentally ill. And it is so hard for me to say sth like that.. Idk what to do.

  • I’m surprised and still don’t completely believe that the majority of people wake up and automatically feel okay, and their default emotion isn’t anger or sadness or just complete emptiness. If emotions were water, I would say 90% of the time I either feel like I’m drowning or dying of dehydration, and I have to remind myself that just because that’s the norm for me, it’s not for the majority of people.

  • I feel like that all the time, I’ll either just feel sad and heavy or I’ll get a little bit of anxiety from just not doing anything.

  • It’s so great that you’ve recognized your depression at such a young age you’re going to save yourself a lot of grief. It took me like 36 years to figure this shit out.

  • Sorry for commenting so much, but you are such an inspiration to me, you give me hope that one day I’ll finally get a chest binder, boxers, even just men’s deodorant, you make me happy, and I think one day I’ll actually be able to come out as trans. I cry thinking not brave enough a lot..

  • Currently being evaluated for ADHD & bipolar, so I can’t speak on whether I am in fact bipolar. With that said, either way you are such a beacon of hope to this community. You show immense self courage, as well as encouragement & care for others. Much love from Texas! ��☯️

  • I think i have bipolat disorder.. for longer periods i continue to exhausturated happy n sometimes bery low loosing interest in everything i do, withdrawing myself from freinds & family.sometimes being the activest person in my own group. They use to think that I’m not being real just acting but its tough for me to deal these sitchvations with the people that i like, I don’t know how to explain the same to them but it’s fine..currently i am getting better to avoid depression but as long i am high nothing beats me.

  • It’s amazing that there are people like you to tell people about this kind of stuff. During the video I broke down crying, because I have a lot of the feelings that you mentioned to be linked to depression, but I still feel really uncomfortable talking about this stuff with the people that I’m close to as well as professionals. I know it’s not healthy to not get help, but are there any ways I might could help this on my own until I’m comfortable enough to talk to someone about it?

  • I’m 12 and I feel embarrassed about my depression

    Most of my life I’ve had depression and haven’t gotten any help

    I’m scared for my future because some days my depression gets so bad that I’ve almost killed myself

    No one helps me

    And I’m kind of similar to you

    Thanks for reading

  • Me sometime happy, at other time angry, aggressive, crying after listening a song but for no reason, moody, hungry, irritated, weird, etc. Things emotions changes within a second….. Can anyone tell me what is wrong with me??��

  • im 19 just transitioning into adulthood. get as much help as you can while you’re still a kid because it will help you immensely when you have to transition into adulthood.

  • If you suffer from bipolar disorder you are NOT alone! Need help with your bipolar disorder? You can get help here https://betterhelp.com/authenticmentalhealth

  • Oh my god, I can relate to this so badly. Whenever I don’t do anything there’s this empty, sad, anxious kind of feeling… And then I start overthinking and everything and it’s horrible. Oops

  • Idk what to do i told my therapist abt it but doesn’t think i have bipolar. I honestly dont know what to do no more I’m scared to ask her again. &’ i also feel every symptom:/

  • Kudos for the Video clip! Apologies for chiming in, I would love your opinion. Have you heard about Peyadison Initial Principality (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is an awesome one of a kind product for discovering how to get rid of depression without the normal expense. Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my friend Sam after a lifetime of fighting got great results with it.

  • Thank you for your information; could you investigate about anosognosia and elaborarate on the topic? I think my wife has developed it… Thank you again, your videos help her a lot

  • Have u ever felt like suddenly from chill mode to beast mode for no reason u jus feel like u wanna fuck up everything and everyone in front of u for no reason?

  • Okay so, I do multiple online tests all the time and I always get the results as 90 or higher. �� I have not been diagnosed because my mom wouldn’t beleive me but everything in every test or quiz or stuff like that is always over 90. I don’t know what to do or if I have it, but please help!

  • This video was honestly so incredible, it felt like you were right there next to us. Especially in the end when you started talking about how were not alone, it just means so much, even if coming from an absolute stranger.
    Stay strong ♥

  • My boyfriend busted his windshield with his fist, took a baseball bat and broke all dishes in his kitchen, broke his sink too. Is this bipolar?

  • I can go from being happy as hell, to thinking of something and getting really sad. Like I can bring having a sleepover with my bestie, laughing like a nut, then thinking of not being friends and getting really sad…

  • It took me 16 years to be diagnosed accurately. I had many psych evaluations but the weekly counseling it what really showed I was bipolar. I hope people don’t think by watching a video they can do arm chair psychology on themselves when I had the best of the best diagnosis me incorrect. Seek a counselor not a youtube video. Peace & love!

  • I think im getting closer to finding out whats wrong with me im literally crying every day and i have no motivation whatsoever to even to do simple everyday tasks i might have let this go to long

  • After watching MMk about a women has a Bipolar disorder, i am not satisfied for the info i get it from about, so i search here in YouTube about the Bipolar disorder. Then i find-out and i clear to my self that i have a Bipolar disorder cause i felt those signs, I have those signs,i experienced those signs.

  • I can relate that, when im not doing nothing like not distracted i quickly get sad or stressed or start to think about how i really feel how i really am why life and then i start crying so yes or just empty or idk now bc I have moments in which I can think about every feeling i have and others in which i dong know how to think xd

  • It IS the middle of the night and I am feeling extremely restless, as usual at this period. That is why I write this even thougt i don’t comment on youtube usually. And I don’t feel tired even though I have been awake for many many hours and done things the whole day and evening. And I do still feel like I can’t be sure of me having this bipolar 2 thing. Please can someone respond to me if they have experienced similar situations to this one or just tell me what your judgement would be if this was you. Like, I really can’t judge it myself so please just give me an opinion, we help each other, right? I love you even if you just type something little. Man I have so much energy right now but I still feel depressed!!

  • I have so many symptoms of bipolar it’s not even funny, and I have begged my parents to get me tested, but they don’t believe me and they think I’m just making it up to “be cool”, and they say I have “to have a reason” to be depressed.

  • I was depressed for 5 months last year, and I tried to tell my parents. I asked if maybe I should see our school counselor, but instead my parents said ” They record everything. Do you really want to be known as the kid with mental problems??” So thus I didnt say anything to anyone and just tried to get over it myself. It took me a long time, but I got over it LUCKILY. Now I kind of see maybe I should have talked to my counselor regardless of what my parents said. Because I spent almost 2 hours every day crying alone, and I bet it would have helped if i had told somebody.

    If you have depression, talk to someone. Now. Dont do what I did.

  • hey! My long distance husband has the same issue. He’s happy and all cheered up and the very next second he’d want nobody around, sometimes he just wants to isolate himself and sometimes he gets angry and says terrible things, and wants to be left alone. Once his moods swing ends, he’s all normal and sweet again! Help me with it if you’ve found any way to fix it? Any suggestions!!
