Get help now
There are times when we all have problems that seem too big to sort out on our own. If you’re feeling like this, one of the best things you can do is talk to someone. While it’s important that you let your friends know how you’re feeling, it’s often best to talk to an adult - just because they’re likely to know more about what to do.
