You can talk to your mom, dad, older sibling (if they want to talk to you; don’t force them!), an aunt, uncle, older cousin, great-aunt, great-uncle, grandma, great-grandmother, best friend, teacher, doctor, or therapist about your sadness.
Is somebody else you love grieving? This spreads the feelings and emotions of being upset. Or are you being bullied or abused? (Report that to parents, teacher, 911 or therapist, doctor, or other grownups for help right away.) And the big question: Do you feel like hurting yourself or somebody else? Get 911 if you’re going to act on that immediately, please don’t.
Confiding in family, grownups, and friends and all those people you love can help – especially if they’ve been through it before. Try listening to happy music, or music that reflects on your sad feelings. Meditating, yoga, and forming your own special silly song that brings yourself a few laughs or crestfallen chant that reflects on your feelings can help. Ever thought of writing down happy things, good memories, joyous plans, and achievements? Then writing down upsetting things, bad memories, expected disasters, and discouragements and failures. Put the happy list in the Cheerful Chest, a box with bright colors, along with other items that make you happy. Put the sad/angry list in the Crestfallen Cage, a box with dark gloomy colors (like black and gray). Count how many are in the Cheerful Chest and Crestfallen Cage. Compare them; see which one has more lists and objects inside.
