I am a 16-year-old who doesn't talk to any one about my problems. I don't know whether it is because I don't know how to, or because I don't have anyone to talk to, or simply that I don't know if I can trust anyone. I feel so misunderstood.
There have been so many times I have said something and no one takes notice. It feels like I could fly into a flurry and scream at the top of my lungs and no one would listen.
I try to talk to people, I really do. I have tried to open up. I have tried being normal, but it never works. Can you offer any advice?
Don't you have parents to whom you can speak?? That's what parents are for. They want the best for you and will try for you. Friends have their own problems and cannot advise you. Try a teacher whom you trust. How about a grandparent or aunt??? One that loves you and wants to help you.
Young folks always have trouble in sorting out problems growing up. You don't tell me your problems so I cannot comment on them. But try your parents, teachers, or a loved relative.
