i think i need help
An_203268 posted:
I'm a teenager with more than the average teenage problems which include family matters. If you see me in the hallways or in class a smile is usually pasted on my face, but that's just it. It's a mask. I catch myself crying all the time out of nowhere and i nothing that i want turns out the way i want it to. i just feel that if i was in a car accident and died noboby would miss me. What's wrong with me?
I can't talk to anyone and i just keep shaking my head when my teachers catch me crying and ask if anything is wrong. Is there anybody out there? Can anyone hear my cry? please help

I hear you and I used to be you. besides the dying part. I had a smile pasted on my face all through hs. Everyone thought I had it together too. Photo editor of the newspaper, free to roam campus whenever i wanted and leave too. Dream job at the local library, man I had everything. Or so people thought. Little did they know that I just a ball of mania waiting to burst out. I had it together because my mamia allowed me to. Now i look back and think how my hs years might have been better had I asked for helped or someone seen that I was hurting inside. do yourslef a favor, talk to your teachers or school counselor. That's what they're there for. They'll tell you just like me that's there's noting wrong with you, You can't control life or the way life happens. It's mobile like that. everybody at some point or time in their life has wished that they coudld control what happens to them/ their life. but you can't. Hope you find help soon. I'll thinking of you.
