Dealing with inner emotions

12 July 2019 | Education

The SSS Times editorial team asked the learners of SSS what causes teenagers to bottle up their problems, by not talking to someone about their problems and what might be the solution to this. Here is what they had to say.

Michelle Nghishekwa

Sometimes we feel embarrassed to open up to someone because you feel that they won’t understand you and the way you feel. They might not be able to understand what you are not going through what you are facing. Sometimes we don’t want to talk out of fear that the next person might laught at your or their your issues to everyone else A solution might be to find someone you trust and you can open up to. Feel free to talk to your life skills teacher, don’t suffer in silence

Erickson Sheehama

I believe it is because teens feel ashamed and embarrassed, especially when people have opinions about them and the issues or problems that they are facing. I would suggest that you talk to someone you trust or call the toll free life line child line number at 116, they are always prepared to help.

Fillipa Nandago

It is not always easy to share your feelings with people, even with people that you are close with. In this century of ours we want to be seen as perfect. Telling people about your issue or telling them how your perfect life is not bothers them. It has been proven scientifically that writing what you feel on a piece of paper is seven times better than saying it. Meaning if you have no one to trust, there is always a pen ready for you anytime any place.

Warren Eihucha

I believe it is because they feel they are going to be judged by the people they share their problems with. They feel insecure and would rather keep all their burdens to themselves. I would suggest that, rather than judging the person that decided to confide in you listen to them, see their point of view and give reasonable advice and good feedback to him or her.

Khari-ma Witbooi

They feel like they will be judged or they might feel insecure. Some teens have trust issues. I also prefer keeping my problems to myself due to me being afraid of what people might think about me. I think we should really talk to someone, or keep a journal as for me my pillow is always there for me to provide comfort.

Londo Nauseb Griob

Some teens feel that if they do not tell their problems to people, they can deal with it by themselves. They do not want people to judge them. They feel that if they stay quiet the problems will go away. The truth is do not keep your problems to yourselves talk to someone, you will feel relieved, believe me. You will take most of the pressure of your back. Crying can also help you. It makes you feel better.

Fenny Tutyani

I believe it is because they are afraid of being teased, people talking about them and spreading the stories around making them the subject of the group discussion. I would suggest, talk to a really close friend whom you trust but, know who your friends are because in the end not everyone will do things to benefit you.

Peneyambeko Shitaleni

They are scared, shy or have a very low self-esteem. They don’t have the confidence to stand up for themselves, so they keep their problems in, sometimes they have no one to trust or talk to. They should be free and open to everyone. Don’t trust everyone but find people you can trust and believe in.

Rauha Shapaka

First of all people have trust issues and are scared of being judged or being labelled as being a ‘drama queen’ and being told that they are just over exaggerating. Sometimes they don’t have anyone to talk to and they’d rather keep it inside than opening up. Most people also tend to be insecure. They should try and get attached to people they can trust. If you have trust issues and are not good at opening up rather have a note book to write and express your feelings than keeping it inside.

Dean Mwilima

Most teenagers are afraid of what society will think of them, as most want to be accepted by everybody else. In most cases, this results in having a weak personality, and these people are more likely to suffer from depression. Try your best to find a group of pals you will be comfortable with and build trust with them and also isolate yourself from negative people.
