I'm 13 and I deal with the same problems. Stay strong!! please don't ever cut yourself because once you start you cant stop I know fron experience :( you are amazing don't let anyone else tell you other wise!P.S. I have found that this site just feels more real than a therapist anyway, so just find people that care and have them listen, there is always someone willing! Message me if you want someone to talk to :)
You'll get over it after you get through puberty with a nice time gap after it. People being kind of like that are pretty common. Confused, all unable to express and what not, thinking about self harm or suicide (Speaking from what I often heard from people.) and so on.
All you should do at this time is don't alter yourself in any way. Meaning no self harm, no attempts to change yourself in hopes to be expressed or something like that or other things.
You're who you are and you'll come to understand that later. (Being at your age I'd disagree with this myself most likely (AND I WROTE THIS))
if you think you need or want therapy the only way to do so that I know of is to tell your parents. bc of insurance reasons. with that being said this is normal hun. your 3. your hormones are going crazy right now. your a teenager. from what you've posted it also sounds like you have anxiety. and medication maybe needed.again something you NEED to talk to your parents about.
I don't know your parents but I can say as a parent myself I DO care about my kids. and I would do whatever it took to get them help but FIRST they need to know you NEED help.
I know there are some shit bag parents out there who don't care about there kids. if your really feeling stuck you should have a school councilor to whom you can talk to and maybe she can talk to your parents. either way I DO think you need to go see someone.
SELF HARM is never the answer. it may seem like it now. but its not. you will only end up with scars on your arms or where ever or the rest of your life. I used to cut. and now I have marks on my arms and wrist that whenever people see them they KNOW what they are. im no ashamed or embarrassed by them. but there there...forever...please try and talk with someone hun
