Hi Anon,

It can be super tough to know what to do when you’re struggling if you aren’t even sure why that is – and that is okay that you don’t know why. Sometimes talking to somebody who you trust, like a friend or family member, about how you’re feeling can be really helpful for finding support. It’s also a great way to explore what might be causing you to feel down as it can open up discussion.

If you can, it’s also good to chat with professional support, like a doctor, or a counsellor since it can be hard to recognize the problem on your own.

Keep in mind that self-care is really important too, so setting aside some extra time to take care of yourself can be a big help during a tough time. You’re allowed to take a break and do things that you enjoy. If it helps, reflecting on what happened in the past week or the past month is a good way to recap recent events. It might help shed some light on what’s been going on. Even if you can’t find an answer, putting aside time for self-reflection is always a good way to relax and take care of yourself.

If you are still unsure about whether or not you want to talk to someone in your life about it, you can always contact us at ConnecTeen as a place to start.
