Sometimes, however, we find it hard to talk about our feelings and keep them to ourselves. These thoughts and feelings can build up, making us feel overwhelmed and unable to cope.

If you are having a challenging time, it is important to talk to someone, a friend, parent, teacher or professional. By talking to someone you are able to express yourself, reflect on the situation, and gain a new perspective and work through the difficulty with support.

Although these times can be difficult, these challenges give us the opportunity to learn, grow and develop. By overcoming these obstacles, we become more resilient.
