I want to run away from my family. My mom has recently changed. She is very mad at me for my grade results. My dad also is angry at me. I feel very hurt. I just need some help.</span><br></p></div><div class="ExternalClass1A90204EE4DB4C97AC82E97B37829B7B"><p>​Thanks for messaging in. It sounds like you have had a rough semester and your grades did not turn out as you had hoped or as your parents expected. Sometimes when you're going through tough things it can be hard to work through it alone. It's helpful just to let someone else in and maybe come up with some ideas of how to get through it.</p><p>You said your mom and dad have both been angry lately. Anger can be coupled with other emotions, for example maybe your parents are feeling disappointed-mad or scared-mad. When anger happens, the best way to handle it is to talk about it. We have some tips on how you can do this:  <a href="/pages/when-anger-comes-between-you.aspx?Topic=Anger">When Anger Comes Between You (yourlifeyourvoice.org)</a><br></p><p>Try to think of and talk to your parents about ways your grades could be improved next year. Talk through ideas like how to study, the possibility of getting a tutor, reviewing your schedule to see if something needs to be changed so you have more time for your school work next year.<br></p><p>We understand this tension between you and your parents makes you feel overwhelmed. Being sad can take a lot out of you. Does it make it hard to do other things when you're feeling sad? Do you try to do some things to take care of yourself? Maybe taking a walk outside, or listening to your favorite music. Some people find it helpful to keep a journal, as well. Writing down how you're feeling can help you release it, and also process what you're going through. I'm going to include some links to our website that talk about some ways to help you overcome some of those feelings.</p><p><a href="/Pages/tip-Your-Feelings-are-OK.aspx?Topic=Depression">Your Feelings are OK (yourlifeyourvoice.org)</a></p><p><a href="/Pages/tip-creating-a-safety-plan.aspx?Topic=Depression">Creating a Safety Plan (yourlifeyourvoice.org)</a></p><p><a href="/JournalPages/99-Coping-Skills-Poster.pdf?Topic=Depression">99 Coping (yourlifeyourvoice.org)</a></p><p><a href="/JournalPages/60-Ways-To-Be-Kind.pdf?Topic=Depression">Kind To Yourself (yourlifeyourvoice.org)</a></p><p>We're really proud of you for messaging in and talking about the things you're going through.
