From Chicken Soup for the Preteen Soul


This is real life—in a book.

Y’all know that life may not be perfect, right? But no matter how complicated or challenging life might be for you, you are one of the blessed and lucky ones! From this point on, you have a manual for life!

Finding out what others have gone through during their preteen years can help you realize that you’re not alone and maybe even keep you from going through the same things. Be open-minded enough to let their experiences help make your transition into teenage-hood a smoother one. At least this way you’ll have some shortcuts!

Be kind to others, even the people who you may not like. You might find that they’re dealing with the same stuff as you. Remember that everyone has something to offer to this world.

Above all, go for your dreams. The world will be a better place when you give life your best and follow your heart.

God Bless,
Kenan Thompson
