No One To Talk To

By May 5, 2022May 9th, 2022No Comments

No one to talk to.  I need to vent. I have no one to talk to and I just have been grieving my best friend’s death and the thing is I’m angry and sad and no one cares- at least it feels like that. Help. I just… I have no clue I honestly don’t. There’s nothing I can do to make it better.

SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT NOW:

  • It sounds like you are going through a hard time right now. It’s understandable to feel angry and sad especially if you’ve lost someone close to you. Grief can be a difficult process to navigate and while, it is a very personal experience, it is best to connect with another supportive adult during these challenging times.
  • If you want someone to talk to you can reach out to TeenLine: Text “TEEN” to 839863 everyday from 6 PM – 9 PM PST they also have a website and a phone number, or you can call TeenLink Crisis Connections: 866-833-6546 every day from 6 PM – 9:30PM PST and also check out their website. Lastly, there are a bunch of useful resources here on: Help Hotlines | The Youth Alliance

WHEN YOU ARE UP FOR IT LATER:

  • Consider looking over our informational website for some resources. We have great information on each of the things you mentioned on our LEARN tab such as GRIEF, DEPRESSION, and ANGER.
  • Sometimes it helps to get out of bed and get yourself moving. Check out our TOOLS tab and consider trying a DAILY SCHEDULE or a SUPPORT PLAN. Try out a new cafe or bagel place in town. Start walking dogs for family or family friends. Learn a new dance. Join a new club. Expand your positive experiences and encounters exponentially. It was Eleanor Roosevelt who said, “With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.” Try a gratitude journal; consider what you can be grateful for each new day, as we have the choice to make something of it or not; to stay in bed, on the computer, or to go out and try every day.
