Chilindrina, 14

My uncle and I work cleaning under houses and I hate it because of rats,snakes,dirt and mold. I get sick a lot. I would prefer going to school because I want to be a psychologist or astronomer.

I feel sad all the time and have no one to talk to.

Whats it Mean ?

  • Chilindrina, it is understandable that you feel sad about working rather than going to school. It sounds like you have a great idea of what you want to be in the future.
  • Take care of yourself and your health. It is important that you talk to an adult, like a parent or caregiver, and see a doctor if you are getting sick frequently.
  • Also, you might try talking to your uncle about how you feel. You may be surprised at what he says, he may even be unaware that you feel this way.
  • Investigate other ways you can learn. Perhaps you can go to the library for some books on astronomy and psychology, ask a teacher at school or look online.
  • Seeking out your interests might also help you find friends that are interested in similar things, and making friends would give you some people to talk to.
  • Make a plan now for your path to become a psychologist or an astronomer in the future. Find out what you have to do to get there.
