Please Help Me I Have No One To Talk To
I'm 14 years old. I get angry if I don't get what I want, if someone I don't like is around me or if plain and simple someone walks by that makes me mad.
I have things in my past that have hurt me and I hold a grudge it makes me very angry to think about. I snap sometimes and yell or punch things or kick things.
My parents know a little bit, but they have no clue whats really building up inside. I have no one to talk to. I need help.
Response from Dr. DeFoore
Hello, and thanks for telling your story here. I know you don't feel like it, but you're a good person. There are good reasons for your anger, and it sounds like you know what they are.
I think you can make some good progress in dealing with this, and starting to feel better. You will find several exercises that you can use on this FAQ page, and if you actually use them, you will definitely benefit. I encourage you to try these exercises at least for two weeks. You will find some imagery processes there that you can use to heal the things from your past that bother you.
Then, I think it would be very good if you told your parents what you've been feeling. Tell them you've gotten some help, but if you still feel the need for help then maybe ask for them to take you to a counselor, or go to see your school counselor.
You are not alone, even though you feel that way. Think of the people around you, and you will know who you can trust the most.
Above all, believe in yourself.
My very best to you,
