We are so glad you reached out to us, we are here for you! You seem to have a lot of unreasonable pressure for your age. I am very concerned on why you feel you are the only person responsible for having a job and the burden of the families financial issues. That is a lot to take on at such a young age. That probably needs to be looked at and some changes need to be made to get your family some help and to take that burden off of you.
It sounds like the pressure you are under is not what a 15 year old should be experiencing. At your age it is difficult to get a job, in addition you need to be concentrating on school and just being a teenager. We have a lot of questions on why you feel this pressure and where it is coming from?
If you can't be who you need to be and not have this type of pressure it is understandable you would feel depressed and overwhelmed. That is very concerning and we want to encourage you to reach out to us, a school counselor or let a parent know of how overwhelmed you are. From your email it sounds like you are taking on the responsibilities of the adults and that isn't fair.
We want to help you and even provide you with some resources if your family needs them in your area. Also, we want to help you to find ways of feeling better if is just getting more time to relax, hanging out with friends, listening to music and just being the teen you need to be.
Find time everyday to do what you enjoy instead of having this type of pressure that is for the adults in your life to handle. We are concerned for you and want to help. Can you call us at 1-800-448-3000 or even chat with us at www.yourlifeyourvoice.org to discuss how you are feeling and get you more ideas on how to get you feeling better.
Your stress is very concerning and you not being able to just be a teen is also. Take that time to relax and concentrate on school, friends and let us help with the rest, or tell another adult about the situations. Help is out there.
Take care, we look forward to hearing from you,
