Hi all, I'm a 14 year old girl, I'm an only child, and I'm feeling pretty lonely at the minute. Whenever I want to talk to someone in depth, I never get the chance. I don't tell my parents anything personal any more, because I know they judge me and tell my secrets to their friends while they're drunk.
Like I said, I've got no siblings to talk to, and me and my cousins aren't really close. I have a few friends at school, but they're mostly rough-and-tumble type boys, so I don't feel comfortable talking to them about that stuff. I've got a few friends who are girls, but they see me as this hard-*** tomboy type girl, which I am most of the time (I love sport, I like a lot of stuff that guys like and I get on well with loads of guys) so i don't want to open up to them incase they see me as weak.
I know this sounds really self pitying and all, but I'm just wondering if you think I should talk to my friends? I never tell anyone anything. When some people I was close to died last year, I told no one who didn't know them; they still don't know now.
So will people think less of me? Or is sharing thoughts and feelings a good thing?
