I work with youth and young adults to help them improve depressive symptoms and self-esteem as well as effectively address family, relationship and peer conflicts.

It can be extremely tough to have people around us not recognise us and, what's more, make us feel worse, especially if it someone close to our hearts. It can also be extremely hard to figure out how to act in a situation like this. I don't know how your family dynamics works, but sometimes opening up respectfully about how you are feeling can make things a lot better (even if not directly to your mother at first). Holding your emotions inside is never a good thing, but I totally understand how difficult it can be to not do that. So, sometimes, just slowly talking about your feelings to someone you trust can be the way to go!
