Hey,

im new here but just gotta get some things off my chest before I explode!!


Having a bad day and cant stop crying! Dont want to admit I have a problem but deep down I think I no I might need abit of help.


Fed up of constantly worrying about weight/food, and dancin and doing sit ups even when im in agony. Asked my mum to hide the battery for the scales which she did but I then found and couldn't resist to go on them.


All my friends are perfect, and im fed up of wishing I was someone else. Wish I had the confidence to be happy with myself and speak out and do my own thing instead of copying and blending into the background so I don't get noticed.


Im confused and dont no whether I do need help or its just a normal teenage thing.

Either way I think I need to tell my mum, I just dont want to upset her.


Sorry I just needed to get that off my chest fed up of it going through my head ten thousand times a day.

I no you all have your own problems but I would be very grateful for any advice.

Thanks

Hi, there.
How are you doing now?
What do you mean when you say that all your friends are perfect? Maybe that's where your problem lies - you also have your good qualities that no one else has.
There's always hope, trust me.

Thanks

when I say my friends are perfect I mean that they are the ones always getting the compliments and I always stand at the back and just admire their confidence.

I think in some ways they help ruin my confidence with their nasty little comments at school, but I was never strong enough to say anything back.


Feeling abit better than I did last night, but still crying!!! I just can't seem to stop!!

I'm happy you're feeling better, even if it's only a bit.
Try to see yourself beyond what makes you sad and unpretty. :)
