Are you struggling to find direction?

Here are some tips.

Your thoughts (54) Are you struggling to find direction?

Do you struggle with finding direction and expressing emotions? Try new activities...

You may find a natural talent you never knew you had.
Don't let bad thoughts get to you; try to stay positive, for example, say to yourself, ‘I'm courageous', ‘I'm beautiful’ or ‘I can do this'.

Find friends and mentors who support you to develop your talents.
Friends can build your confidence by encouraging you to keep trying even when you feel down. They also notice when you do well and celebrate with you.

Everyone going through puberty feels strong emotions.
When you're feeling overwhelmed by your emotions, take deep breaths, dance or take a walk (if it’s safe), or find a trusted person to talk to.
