I'm 16. My dad died in August of last year and I still feel emotional about it. My dad and I weren't always on good terms because we argued about many things, probably because we were so alike, but I still feel guilty even after his death for not clearing up all the negative comments that were shared. I'm having emotional breakdowns because of it and I don't want to share it with my mom or my sister, especially my mom because I don't want to put my emotional burden on her. I feel like I need to sit down and talk to someone about it, and I've tried talking to a couple of close friends, but they just get awkward about it, I think they just don't know what to say.

My mom is getting close with her new boyfriend and I generally like the guy, but I'm afraid if I get to close and my mom ends up leaving him, it would be just like losing another dad and I don't think I can go through that again. Maybe it would be best not to get to know mom's boyfriend(s) well so I don't have to take the risk.

  • You need to confide in someone you trust,about your feelings.If you keep these emotions suppressed,they may affect your overall health and well-being.Do you have a school counsellor,at your school? If yes,confide in that person.I recommend you speak to your mother or/and her partner.What are parents for? Don't suffer alone in silence girl,talk to someone,who may understand your feelings.

  • we all say things we dont mean in anger. im sure your father knew you didnt mean it all, as he no doubt did not. i lost an uncle in october of last year, ive not completely come to terms with that, this is normal. you may need to speak to someone qualified as your friends probably dont know what to say and do not want to upset you.
