What do teenagers possibly go through to be upset about

If you're a teenager, or when you were, did you ever have adults undermining your feelings? 
Perhaps you were going through a down period and the adults you thought you could confide in snorted and asked, "what the hell do you have to be depressed about? You're only a teenager". 

The fact that you are/were a teenager I think is the entire point though. Teenagers are young and vulnerable. They haven't experienced much loss and much disappointment so they love hard and have high hopes. They think they know everything and have the world eating out of their hands.
They get hit harder with reality, with loss, heartbreak and disappointment, harder than anyone else. Adults have learnt through experience. Adults have walls and adults are tough. Teenagers don't have any walls yet. They're sitting ducks to the sharp arrows of reality.
