Well this says I'm dealing with sadness, I've taken like 5 online depression quizzes and all of them say moderate to severe depression, and I have lost interest in almost everything I used to do and see no point in doing anything, yet my mom, WHO'S A COUNSELOR still hasn't even noticed once that I'm this sad. Also, did I mention, she's making me stay at a horrible school THIS YEAR AND NEXT YEAR, completely disregarding anything I say, and getting mad at me for pointing out HER bias. I would ask to see a counselor, but I'm just afraid it will make her more mad or that she'll think I'm faking to get out of this school (which was the original trigger of this depression). If you have any advice PLEASE help. :((((((

Well, Grace, there’s nothing you can REALLY do to get him to like you, but if you just be yourself around him, then he might see how great you really are!!🙃
Hope this helps

Lexi03, do u have any advice on how to get a boy to like you? I keep obsessing over whether he likes me or not, which is not doing much for my other life problems and anxiety...

Then you WILL become what you want to be.
You are the only one in charge of how you live your life! So if you decide to die without trying to get help, then that’s how it will go.

But if you stand up to yourself and fix your problems, then you will become a better person who can live the way they want.
Because no one
And I mean no one
Has to die

I want everyone to hear this because it’s important:
If you die, you don’t come back. There’s nothing we can do to change that.
But if you believe that you are more than just someone who has so many problems or worries. If you believe that you can change your life. If you know that somehow, everything will be okay. Then you

I feel like I’ve done something wrong.
I have a crush on someone and I worry about whether he likes me or not all day and night

My friends make fun of me sometimes
One of my teachers is kinda mean

im feeling so lost and hopeless. since when i was small i have always played violin. my mom is a violinist so that explains why she is making her daughter play violin. but the problem is its not what i want to do. i have never felt any love or hate towards violin, i just didn't feel anything. i never had thought of what i wanted to become when i grow up. i always thought 'i will play violin in the future'. but recently i have found new interest in something else, and it makes me feel so happy. and i seriously thought about quitting violin. but i really cant. i dont want to waste all these hours of practicing, the money spent on it. i have basically sacrificed my childhood for this. i have never played sports or at the playground, my school was strict. but everything became worse when i had to move to another country. i moved and it was bad. i feel so lost and hopeless here. and i really want to do what i love, but i don't want just throw this education. thats why i took this quiz. if you are reading this, thank you for listening to my problems. i hope the best wishes for you❤️

I recently told my crush I liked her and she didn't like me back but were still friends so it's hard for me to move past liking her. Also being in the closet (im lesbian) probably doesn't help with stress

I constantly feel empty inside, even when I'm with my friends and were having a good time, I start thinking "it's not gonna last," or "they secretly hate you," or "they only hang out with you because they feel sorry for you," and I can't get those thoughts out of my head. It makes me hate myself and all I can think about is death

I feel like I have a bag of stones in my chest and nails in my stomach. this helped me uncover and understand what “situation” may be behind it.

It said I'm sad, and yeah I am sad. My 'friends' treat me like 💗 and always make me feel bad about myself and like I'm not good enough. They say it's a joke but I'm tired of it and literally no-one cares that I want to kill myself.
