Hi, guys!

This suspect is kind of a hard one for me to write - but I really feel the need to share it with you and share my experiences.

There are a lot of girls and boys who struggle with their social lives. There may be soms issues with their health, family's or their looks. For those people it may be hard to make friends. They get bullied and they'll feel misplaced. Depression, panic attacks and a lot more complications that may follow.

My parents got divorced 10 years ago. It was a really hard time for me and I struggled a lot getting over it. It really changed me and I found it pretty hard at first. I had trouble getting used to my new school and the new partners of my parents. It got so out of hand- last spring I had a massive panic attack and cut myself. It was the worst moment in my life. Everything that happened in the past ten years seemed to play like a short movie in my head. It was horrible and I had a lot of help from my psychologist and the therapy sessions.

I was always trying to be too cool, like you do in school. I found it really hard talking to people, answering questions - you don’t want to sound like an idiot, so a lot of the time you don’t say anything at all. That will make you even stranger then they thought you were. You're the quiet girl and no one seems to care about you.

But then you realize everyone is in the same boat. None of us knew what we were doing. You can’t take yourself too seriously, and you all start to relax into being who you are. You show yourself to the outside world and you make friends that fit with your personal interests and your visions.

So what I want you to know - it will be alright! There comes a point in your life when you don't longer care what other people think about you. You'll find people who'll care about you and who'll be there for you no matter what. If you seem to struggle with things - just talk about it with people you trust or with a therapist. Don't try to keep everything for yourself, because it will be too much.

If you want to talk about this, don't hestitate to contact me!

Stay strong beautiful people! <3
