It can be very hard when you feel like you are alone. It also sounds like your family is making your situation difficult and scary. Feeling lonely can be very hard, and I am sorry you are feeling that way.
First of all, you need to know that you are not alone, even though it may feel that way. Everything you are feeling is perfectly normal and natural, and there are many people experience the same feelings you do. Is there someone you trust-friend, parent, relative, teacher or school counselor you may be able to talk to?
I would also encourage you to join Trevorspace at www.trevorspace.org. This is the Trevor Project’s safe, online social networking site for LGBTQ young people ages 13 to 24 their friends and allies. It’s a great supportive community where you can connect with others who might feel the same as you do. It is a great place to meet other people to talk to, which will hopefully make you feel a little less lonely.
Please remember we are always here for you at the Trevor Project. You can call us at the Trevor lifeline at 1-866-4-U-Trevor, 24 hours 7 days a week and at TrevorChat. We are always here for you.
