I feel so guilty about being sad

not to be a stereotypic teenager but im so f*cking sad all the time. well, idk if sad is the best way to describe it, its just a feeling of just nothingness?? and hopelessness??? well what ever it is, I don’t f*cking like feeling it. after it got so bad and I was self harming every day for months my school found out about it and told my mum, the one person I especially didn’t want to know. the first thing she said was “wow this makes me look like a really shitty parent doesn’t it” and I wanted to kill my self right there. I made her so f*cking upset all for what?? bc I couldn’t handle being a teenager?? its now been like 3 years and I feel so f*cking guilty, like there are people in much worse positions than me and they are really happy?? I honestly feel fo f*cking ungrateful and as much as I try to just get over it I can’t. like my mums got enough on her plate already besides me f*cking moping about, crying all the f*cking time.

  1. Hi my friend, I am sorry to hear that you are feeling sad but self harming is not the solution to this. There are many healthy ways of dealing with difficult feelings. Some of the recommended coping technique includes painting, reading books, starting a journal, listen to your favourite music or even share your troubled feelings with someone you trust (you can start by talking to an adult you respect). If self-helping is not working for you, you can always talk to a professional counsellor. Please give these counselors and therapist a chance, you probably think that you understand yourself better but these professionals can give you a fresh perspective to the issues you are facing. Remember, don’t lock yourself up, let others help you. Sometimes in life, you can fall down holes you can’t climb out by yourself. That’s what family, friends and professional therapist are for – to help. They can’t help, however, unless you let them know you’re down there.

    I wish you all the best. Never give up. You have no idea of what the future holds. Hitting rock bottom doesn’t mean you have to stay there. And the best part about rock bottom is that you can only go up from there!

    You can also try calling the befrienders hotline, they are there to listen to your problem. You will feel much better after opening up and sharing your problems. Give it a try.
