What It's Like To Be A Teen, As Told By 'Harry Potter'

According to Harry Potter's conversation with Lord Voldemort in "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," those who reject love and friendship are really missing out. We couldn't agree more, as Harry is a perfect example of how your teen years can be made better -- all because of friendship.

Once in a while, life throws you a curveball

And everything can feel a little chaotic

But sometimes all it can take is introducing yourself to a stranger

Who will eventually become one of your two best friends

To help you realize love and friendship are most important

No matter what kind of differences you may have between you

Because even when you feel alone

Or get wrapped up in your own drama

Or if you’re feeling down

Or in an awkward situation

Your friends will always have your back

They’ll be there to stare down your arch enemies

And you can run to them for help

They’re also there for the good times

... Because a little mischief never hurt anybody

Real friendships are about finding the beauty in other people

They're about growing up together

And sharing an eternal bond...

... through it all. Forever.
