I'm a 17 year old black female and been feeling terrible lately. If i don't feel sad or anxious, my mood is low. Its a rarity to feel happy. Different things are giving me negative vibes.
Obviously I am apart of social media because i'm a teen, but the things i see on tv or online makes me feel bad about myself because i haven't got the nicest stuff. I also feel that people are very mean especially to black women, when they make stereotypical claims and jokes about us, and that is one of the main things i feel upset about.
In reality, small things put me in a low mood, the disrespect of other, shady people in my class, and stressing about not doing well enough to please my family.
I feel like I'm slowly deteriorating inside, and its horrible feeling this way literally every day, I'm not really open about talking to people about this face to face because I don't like crying in front of others.
Any advice? It would be much appreciated.
