When i’m at home i feel so sad and always feeling i am hopeless and ready to go because life is so complicated,i can’t go out with friends i am trap inside the house,my parents and friends don’t accept for who i am and what i wanna do in life. And not having my first kiss feel so jealous because is something i wont get in life. I’m scared to come out fully to everyone because they will leave me apart. When i’m at school it feel different don’t fit in and no friends to be with. I feel i don’t belong in this world,i wanna be the same as everyone else but i just cant is so damn hard .

First I want to acknowledge your bravery in wanting to be yourself and in reaching out to us at the Trevor Project. It’s perfectly normal to feel scared and lonely because you might not be accepted for who you are by family or friends. Please know that your individuality and uniqueness is precious, valued and to be celebrated.
I would encourage you to speak to someone you trust such as a family member or friend, or possibly a counselor at your school. There are probably also groups in your area that you can help realize that you are not alone and that there are many people who feel just like you.
If there’s no one in your area you feel comfortable talking to about how you’re feeling, we’re always available to you here at www.thetrevorproject.org. You are not alone.
