uhh? what the heck? - November 5th 2012, 03:28 PM

Soo... My life has been amazing lately. I have so much to be thankful for, I'm surrounded by extremely loving people, I've gotten the will power to start losing weight, I just got the really awesome horror game Amnesia The Dark Descent that ive had my eye on (its $20) for a while now and I'm loving it!! There's so many more reasons why I SHOULD be happy... My favorite is the loving people, I mean I have 2 loving parents, a teacher who is AMAZING, 4 friends who support me, and a guy who loves me and KNOWS when I'm sad and always insists upon me talking to him about it... I haven't felt so loved in a long while.

But there's a problem; I'm just... Not happy! I don't get why... I'm thankful for everything I have, I don't want anything more... But I'm just... Depressed. I've been extremely stressed (which Jakeb has noticed every day ), sad and suicidal. I don't get it! I'm starting to respect myself, but I just can't be happy!! I've even lost weight already... There's nothing that's wrong in my life right now! Well I mean, there's the bullies... But they're always there, everyday of my life But they don't really bother me anymore... I just don't understand why I have this horrible feeling inside of me... pulling me to try to end it.

I just wanna lay down and cry and cry and cry... The thing is, I DON'T KNOW WHY!!

Maybe it's my past? Or the fact that my dance concerts coming up and I don't have half the costumes? Or maybe it's because of highschool next year? I don't know......... The thoughts don't seem to bother me that much.

My guess is going to be your age. You are 12 years old which means you are in the beginning of puberty and your hormones are going to be crazy. Irrational crazy, like depressed for absolutely no reason and that is completely normal. I don’t think you should be super worried if your emotions don’t seem to match up with reality, unfortunately that is just a part of growing up that everyone has to go through. I don’t think there is much to do other than ride it out.

But! If you ever harm yourself, harm someone else, or these feelings go on longer than six months, I suggest you talk to a medical professional like your doctor. It’s always good to let your parents know what’s going on, let them know you are having these feelings, they went through this too! But for the most part bouts of depressed feelings are completely normal in the teen years.

Best of luck to you!

You're concerned because you are still feeling down even though everything is wonderful. If you have felt down for a long time it is normal for your those bad feelings to slowly fade, even though you are already in a much better situation. My suggestion for speeding up the process is to push away those bad thoughts if they are irrational.

When irrational bad thoughts are happening to me I talk them down. I think about how they are wrong and think about all the good things that have happened to me lately.

High school and your other event might also be a stress that might bring up other bad thought? If you are able to calmly and logically think about why it stresses you out and figure out solutions to the problem it will likely help you very much. That way you can address the issues without being overwhelmed.

"Setting boundaries is not a more sophisticated way of manipulation - although some people will say they are setting boundaries, when in fact they are attempting to manipulate. The difference between setting a boundary in a healthy way and manipulating is: when we set a boundary we let go of the outcome."

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am Human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does
