  1. Hi there, I’m sorry to hear that you are suffering right now. I am no expert in this, but I think you are putting too much pressure on yourself. I can tell that you are a filial and kind person because you care about the feelings of your loved ones such as your parents. However, you have to be kind to yourself as well. Don’t focus too much on your imperfection. Nobody is perfect. Everyone make mistakes (I just made one this morning when I accidentally sent kiss emoticon to my co-worker instead of my gf). It’s ok, just have to clear things up! Not the end of the world. So please don’t scare about making mistakes, every mistake you make is a lesson learned in life.

    I agree with you that you need someone to talk to. The worst thing to do is suffering in silence. Have you try letting your parents know about your stress and problems? I think you should let them know because having someone to count on will help you overcome this faster. As for your best friend, you can try reach out to him/her again and renew the relationship, start from a small talk and work your way up. It won’t be easy, but if you are determined to overcome this, I believe you can do it.

    Last but not least, you can consider getting yourselves some hobbies such as jogging, bike riding, gardening, sports activities, etc. This will release your stress as well as giving your mind something else to focus on instead of your tension.

    That’s all from me. Good luck to you and I hope you live a happy life. Remember you are not alone in this, get help from the adults if you can’t cope with it.
