DEAR DEIDRE: SOME days I feel so low all I do is cry in order to release my thoughts and feelings. I am a girl of 14. I have really good friends but there is no one I can talk to deeply about how I feel.
I cannot talk to my family either, although I don’t know why. I just try to hide it.
I would like to be able to make new friends and talk to boys.
Having gone to an all-girls school, I now find any verbal relationship with boys is very difficult.
I know I bottle up my feelings but it is difficult for me to express them, especially when I am having a low day.

DEIDRE SAYS: I bet many of your friends are feeling just the same. It just takes one of you to be brave and say in a quiet moment, “I was feeling really down and tearful last night, though I didn’t really know why. Do you ever feel like that?”
Lots will rush in to agree they know just how you feel. It’s partly to do with hormonal changes at your age and all the life changes you are all going through.
My e-leaflet Teens Guide To Socialising will help.
