I Feel Like Giving Up. Please Advise.
TeenHealthFX is sorry to hear about what you are going through. One thing we want to mention that comparing yourself to your mom, sibling, or anyone else for that matter can lead to feelings like you are having. Your life is worth living and you are something.
It is important to try to focus on things that make you happy and things you are good at. Just because you mom or sibling are good at something does not always mean you will, too. We would also like to mention that you do not need to decide right now what want to do with your life. College (if that is something you are considering) has undecided options, in addition, it may be a good idea to look into a variety of hobbies or things you enjoy doing.
Even though we cannot diagnose or treat over the internet, however, there are many resources and options available. Since you mention not being sure what to do, TeenHealthFX strongly encourages you to reach out to a parent, trusted adult, or school counselor and let them know what is going on. They will be able to assist you in getting the help you need and in contact with a mental health professional, if needed.
If you feel you need immediate assistance, call 911 or if you live in Northern New Jersey, you can call the Atlantic Behavioral Health ACCESS Center at 1-888-247-1400. Nationally, you can also call 9-8-8 or text the Crisis Text Line by texting HOME to 741741 to connect with a Crisis Counselor. We also have a Mental Health resource page with additional hotlines and websites that may be helpful.
