Is it OK to keep secrets?
I don't know where to start.
I've had a lot going on at home and I began getting affected. My parents tell me to stay strong and that it's OK...but the thing i cant tell anyone. It's a family secret, and it is literally like carrying weights everywhere.
I know it isn't but i can't help feeling its my fault...
I'm so confused and keep geting into weird phases where I get moody for no reason. I seriously think i'm going mental! Another thing...my crush...he used to like me. we used to be friends...but now...i'm not too sure.
any advice? please> i'm seriously depressed.
Trying Hard, 13 I think that Trying Hard should talk more to her parents, especially because she says she feels depressed, which is a serious sadness. There's more good information on that here: Why Am I So Sad? She should tell her parents that keeping this secret feels like carrying heavy weights. She should ask for help and find stuff to do that makes her feel better. I wonder if Trying Hard has ever tried writing down her feelings. It can help a little to write it all down, even if you end up throwing the paper away. Or she could write a letter to her parents, if she thinks it would be easier to express her feelings that way. And if her parents can't or won't help lighten her load, then she should find another trusted adult - a grandparent, an aunt or uncle, or a guidance counselor. The most important thing is that she should find a grownup to help.
What else, Pink Locker girls? Have you ever had a problem that felt like a heavy weight you were carrying around?
