I need help

my life is just... an emotional train wreck. I'm 14 and I've seen and done so much. yet I can barely tell anyone. all my friends live far away so I can barely talk to anyone about this. I'm a lesbian. and I'm 14. no, nothing happened where I'm scared of men. I just don't see guys in that way. my parents don't know anything about me. they don't know I've already had a girlfriend or that I slit my wrists because I fake my happiness. I just want to know who I can go to, because I feel as though my life is just too much. but if I try to tell my friends they'll think I need mental help. who can I go to? how can I talk to my parents. oh, here's the situation with them. my dad is out five days a week at another job so our mom basically raises us. when our dad gets back he's a drunk who just yells at us over and over again. I constantly feel like life is too much for me and I've wanted to die many times. the one person I told about my suicidal thoughts to told me ditto and then made a lie on how they tried to commit suicide four times and failed. they lied to me to try to get my attention, because god forbid anyone care bout me for more than two minutes. I hate life. I just. want to know how to live

Do you feel comfortable talking to a school counselor? Aunt? Uncle? Grandparent? If not...go ahead...I'm listening.

My aunts and uncles are snobs. I thought I could tell a cousin but before I could, she told me she hates gays. My moms parents don't speak a word of English, my dads mom died before I was born, and my grandpa, who I talked to about everything, died a year ago. In three days it'll be the anniversary of his death

I'm sorry. I'm a parent, just so you know. I know how strong your feelings can be, but I promise, life does get better. It's tough when you're young...the emotions are so strong and so real. But taking your life and cutting are not the answer. You don't have to tell your parents you are a lesbian. Just let it be. Try to remember this is such a small window of time in the big picture of life. (((hugs)))

Which part can't you tell anyone? Seems like you've told us. Doesn't that feel a little better? And we didn't even freak out...

You might not want to hear this but if theres one person you can turn to that's God i might sound like some crazy christian but its so true hes one person who can help you and guide you in the right direction all the while not judging you one bit. You also might not want to hear this but you do need some mental support just to help you cope with your feeling i CAN relate to what you are feeling, just remember it gets better it always will. Know that anytime you are feeling your worst, that someone out there has it worst than you. If you need someone to talk to he is ALWAYS there and he accepts you for you! He loves you and this is from someone who can completely get you not just some crazy christian. stay strong.

He is not the one. You are not the one either. You where born into this. The best you can do is get mental support, and get Gods support ask him for strength.

tell a counselor or someone you know you can trust. do not bottle it up; I've been doing that, and it just ends up a wicked mess of depression, migraines, and slashing my ankles. I know how bad it sucks, but let at least someone know this... even if you don't like talking about it, it still takes a ton off of you
