Moodiness (Female; Age 14; New Jersey)
Moodiness is a feeling that every person experiences sometimes in their lives. Moods depict how a person feels and may impact one’s actions or expressions.
What is Moodiness?
An example of this would be if a person walks around all day with a frown, or if someone drags him or herself around slouched over with a depressed look. These expressions don’t cause good impressions. If you were to walk around like that people would think you hate your life, and you would most likely not have any friends. Many teenagers can be moody, especially at school. They walk through the halls upset, and sit in class frowning and ignoring everything around them. Moodiness is not a good thing, and it is important to try and not be moody.
You can find moody people almost wherever you go. If a friend, sibling, schoolmate, or co-worker is moody, it is important to try and cheer them up. Don’t let them sit around sad, make them get up and laugh. There are many ways you can do this. Try telling some jokes, or speaking in a funny voice. Anything you think will cheer them up.
The Dangers of Moodiness
Moodiness may lead to bullying. If you are depressed, you may not be thinking right and because of that you may bully other people. Maybe it’s because you want them to feel just like you feel, or you just want to hurt them for no reason. We all know that bullying is a terrible issue, and it has hurt many people.
