So I’m not good at asking for help or telling people when im struggling with something because I’m always afraid that if I tell someone, they’re going to make fun of me or tell everyone or stop hanging out with NE because they think I’m weird. So I always kinda just deal with things on my own because I don’t trust anyone enough to tell them. So I kinda distanced myself from everybody to avoid getting hurt. But I just feel so alone. And I know I’m not alone because God is with me and everything, but I still feel alone and I wish I had someone to talk to so I didn’t have to deal with everything myself.

Emily, there are people out there that will, unfortunately, be judgemental, uncaring, and maybe mean when they hear about someone’s struggles. I know some people like that. But there are also plenty of people out there that will be understanding, accepting, and helpful when they hear about someone’s struggles; and I know a lot more of those people. I know it’s really easy to be ashamed of something you’re going through and think that anyone you tell will react badly, but that’s not true. I promise that there are people in your life who would gladly listen to and help you with whatever you come to them with. It’s hard, but just ignore what you think is going to happen, because that’s just Satan convincing you of things that are far from true (and I say that from experience). Push past that and just talk to someone, because you might be surprised.
I suggest telling someone from church if possible, and if you aren’t close enough to anyone your age to tell them, talk to an adult instead. It might seem kind of weird or intimidating or may not be your first choice to talk to an adult about things, but they have a lot of wisdom and can be a huge help. Just make sure that whoever you talk to is someone you trust and believes the same things you do so that they can help you most easily.
If you don’t have anyone to talk to or just aren’t ready to do so in person, I am always here for you. 🙂 You can find me on here or email me at Amfin@earthlink.net. Two of my best friends battle depression/anxiety and have self harmed, and I personally struggle with an addiction, so there’s really nothing I haven’t encountered already anyway.

You’re probably right. Idk why but I just don’t feel like I can trust anyone. And I’m so afraid of what people might think about me that it’s really hard to talk so people about anything. I know it’s stupid but I just can’t bring myself to trust anyone…
