I'm Sorry - June 22nd 2016, 08:09 AM

I feel so bad for anybody that has talked to me. I talk so much about my personal life that it depresses people. My friends have told me to stop talk in because I'm too depressing. I stop talking to them because I feel bad and I want them to be happy because what's the point in life if not to make others happy. Anyways, they get offended then I feel even worse. Iwish I could tell them its not their fault. Its my own fault. Sorry if you wasted your time reading this.

Hey there.

I would like to start off by saying that there is no single reason to live and it's up to each of us to define our own reasons. Whilst making others happy is a good reason, you also need to think about your own happiness.

It can be difficult to talk to your peers during the teenage years. Not only are most people preoccupied with their own problems, but even when you do open up, they usually don't have the emotional maturity and skills to respond in a positive or helpful way. However, this shouldn't mean that you can't talk to anyone about how you are feeling. You just need to find the right person.

This could be a member of your family, or someone like a school counsellor. Talking to a counsellor can seem daunting, but once you get past the initial nerves, speaking with them can be really beneficial. They can offer support, as well as advice, and you don't have to worry about upsetting them with what you say.

Can you think of someone you could go to?

If you can't go to anyone at the moment, you can always make a post in the HelpLINK system on this site. You can even log out and do it completely anonymously if you'd prefer.

I just don't want you to feel alone.

Lastly, please stop feeling bad or guilty or anything like that. It's not your fault that you are finding life difficult at the moment and it's also not your fault that your friends aren't able to support you. But there are plenty of people who can and will. You just have to reach out to them.

Be kind to yourself.
