Hi! I really need some help. A couple of weeks ago, I failed my piano exam… I took it cool, I wasn’t really stressed or hurt about it, but these past few weeks have been really strange and I have had like all of depression symptoms AND I’m not doing well compared to normal in school. I know there’s other stuff like racism and isolation pushing it so its not entirely the exam’s fault. Sometimes teachers ask me what is wrong in class and its like… I want to tell them, but all that comes out of my mouth is “I’m fine”. I feel like if I talk about it, they won’t understand me. Anyway, thanks, Dora-Jane.

    FAILURES are part of life. If you don’t fail, you don’t learn. If you don’t learn you’ll never change.

    Hi Musical_me, sometimes it can be easier to write them a letter. Talk about how you feel and give it to them at the end of class or send them an email. I find its a little easier because my brains more relaxed around writing because it feels like “Nah, I’m not actually gonna show them (the person I want to send it to)” and then after that on an impulse, I quickly send or give it over before I can change my mind.” Then, I find it’s more easy to talk to the person because they then know whats going on. I hope this helped, Gabby

    Hi, like the above messages say, failures are part of life, they enable mistakes to be learnt. You could try talking to your close friends and parents, even school counsellors if you have any in your school. Also try talking or sending an email to your teachers explaining the situation, how you feel, and asking for advice. They’ll understand you if you explain it all. Good luck! 🙂
