Still Trying to Figure Out Things
TeenHealthFX is sorry to hear about what you are going through. Emotions can be confusing and hard to handle especially when you are dealing with many at the same time. Identifying your emotions and feelings is always a good first step getting the support you need. Since you mention feeling angry, insecure, and having low self-esteem, you are already in the right direction in finding the support necessary to start feeling like your best self.
Remember that we are all different, physically, emotionally, and mentally. Though I know it can be difficult not to compare yourself to others, we should always keep in mind that we are our own person and there is no one mold that is the right fit for us all. Life isn’t a ‘copy and paste’ scenario and that is okay! A person does not need to feel happy all the time, but also does not need to feel sad all the time either. It’s important to find a balance.
We strongly suggest reaching out to a parent or trusted adult, teacher, or school counselor to let them know about how you have been feeling. They will be able to guide you in the right direction and get you where you need to be to feel better.
If you are having trouble finding an adult you can speak with that you trust and feel comfortable with and live in the northern New Jersey area you can contact (973) 540-0100, or Atlantic Behavioral Health at 1-888-247-1400.
