I realized today that if someone I care about has a problem, I feel like I should be doing something about it, and I always think about it as well (my brain is ALWAYS jumbling with stuff, makes it harder for me to sleep)
Two out of Three friends, PLUS one sorta-friend, are depressed.
One gets raped by her step dad
One, a lot of people don't like her, are a**** to her
One, she gets SO much done, she's regularly achieving really high standards, yet her parents don't think she's good enough
Also I feel I should be doing something about this:
I found out not long ago my 17yr old sis smokes. She's 18 mid-december (which is when it's legal) and her bestie/my brothers ex also does and is 18 start of dec.
I know it's their choice but I really feel I should be doing something about it!
I s*** at talking about my feelings, and it'll be harder with my sis, cuz although we often get along now, when we were younger we 'hated' each other, and we have this thing, nearly 'against' admitting we love each other.
(Our family has never been one to talk about our feelings or tell each other we love them, which doesn't make it easier)
(p.s. if this is any help, I'm 15 in mid december, and, in NZ school system, I'm in year 10 (2nd yr high school) which is form 4) (EEP NCEA exams next year o_O)
(p.p.s. if this was hard to understand, I'm really sorry. Brain's still reeling, like always!)
UPDATE: Also recently my brother (who I so rarely see) said he smokes weed. It's only so he can sleep, because he can't really get to sleep during the day, and he works 11pm to 6am... he doesn't have a lot, just enough of the type to get him sleepy enough.. I don't think so (or maybe just strongly hope) that he won't get properly addicted though..
