Helpless, Anonymous (17)

I was 16 when I first started to isolate myself. I hid how I truly felt. No one knew I was sad, anxious, and lonely because I never showed it, and I still don't. I can come off as outgoing, friendly, and super happy around others, but once I'm behind my closed bedroom door, I become a completely different person. I didn't know exactly why I felt this way. Maybe it was school, friends, family, I honestly couldn't tell you, but it was bad. I started to drink because I thought it would make me feel better. It turned into a daily thing, and no one knew about it. I started to rely on it to the point where I couldn't sleep until I felt the effects of it. This lasted for almost eight months before I couldn't supply it anymore, and I started to get better until I turned to marijuana. I started to gt high every night just hoping to feel something because I felt so numb. it's been a rough journey through my sadness and I haven't completely learned how to cope with it, I still struggle with alcohol to this day, not as bad, but definitely not where I want to be.

Being able to show emotions that you don't like feeling is hard. Really hard. You are definitely not alone. I think that many people reading this feel the same way as you, and have a hard time letting their true emotions show in front of other people. However, hiding emotions is very isolating, because the people who would normally want to support you don't know what's going on in your life. It can make your situation even harder, because you force yourself to face all of these problems alone. I know that it might be uncomfortable, but I strongly suggest that you try and reach out to someone. Even just talking to one friend that you trust could bring you…
