I’m the only one who knows what is going on with me

I’m fourteen years old. I’m struggling with depression. I’m the only one who knows what is going on with me because I can’t tell my parents because they will just tell me that I’m an attention seeker.

I’m at the point where I don’t have the energy to do anything. I cry every night that now I cry with no tears. I’m close to cutting myself. I don’t know what to do. I could really use some advice.


  1. You need to find someone to talk to. I can remember being 14 and feeling like nothing was going to change. I feel like “it gets better” does get thrown around. At 21 years old, I still feel the whole world is against me some days, but it does get better. I have just found out I’m pregnant and suddenly life doesn’t seem so “dull”. I’m trying to see the world and the beauty it contains. You have to find it for yourself. I think it’s hard when you have to do it alone though.

  2. hi ! I’m 14 too and I can really feel what youre saying. I also feel like crying all the time and feeling like no one can understand me. no one. and once I completely cut all my “friends” because I felt suicidal, sad, depressed. I also felt like they wouldn’t understand me. and I get it, my parents will also think that I am a attention seeker if I was to be open to them. my life is so hard that I was thinking of killing myself. but I am still here. and I really hope you work out your things:) people say it gets better and I’m trying to believe it now. I hope you are too.
