I started a bit before my 18th birthday, which was about 7 months ago now, so no their is no such thing as "too early" to begin to find yourself and
expand your mind and spirit. Absorb all the knowledge you can, but do not get caught up so much in one faith that you fail to explore the others.
Every relgion contains truths of some form or another they are just all caught up in ceremony and overly complicated practices. Learn everything you
can. research, Christianity, judaism, islam, buddhism, ancient greek and roman mythology, chinese mythology, any native americam practices, new age
spiritulism, and yes science. Learn learn learn that is the beginning.
As far as coming to peace with yourself you need to explore yourself, take a figurative step back from your out of control emotions and try to
understand them. look for the cause of everythign you think and feel, explore your past, come to terms with anythign that may have happened to you.
Watch people, try to figure out why they act the way they do. You will begin to grasp psychology without even realizing it. reading people is the
simplest thing in the world. You will be able to look at someone, their facial expression, the way they dress, the way they smell, and be able to give
an outline of how they grew up and be able to read their personality to a t. All of this will essentially give you not only control of your emotions,
but understanding. a whole new depth of feeling will open up to you.
finally, as simple as it is, start meditating, things come together when you meditate, it allows you to not only cleanse yourself but to also freely
think and understand anything that may be troubling you. You don't need a teacher, a guide or someone to maybe throw your thoughts at, but not a
teacher. Teachers ruin the learning experience by not allowing one to think for themself and come to answers for themselves, hell even most of what
i'm typing now should be taken with a grain of salt. We do not learn, we only unlock forgotten knowledge
