I don't know what to do.

Hi, well.... I dont even know where to start. My family moved to a different country, I feel alone, I dont like my body. I'm just a huge mess, my life is a mess. Since we moved here, I have been sad; I miss my friends and my family. Whenever I try to talk to my parents about my feelings, they just ignore me, or try to talk abut something else. I've been trying so hard to adjust to my new life, but it seem imposible to try to fit where you don't belong. I feel so alone, nobody understands me, I don't know what to do. it is obvious that if you want to talk to someone, you should go talk to your mom or dad, but I can't. I just don't know what I did to deserve the life I have. Yes, I know that I have to be grateful because I have a beautiful family, and nice friends, clothes, food, etc. but I just don't like my life. I started watching YouTube videos, and yeah, I love Youtubers and One Direction. I think that they are the only people in the world right now that an make me happy. But now my parents don't want me watching videos all day. I have good grades in school, I do my homework, I am responsible, why do they want to take away my happiness? I also have socal anxiety, and i just can't. I have a list of all my flaws, nobody is perfect, but I'm certanly a huge mistake. I have tons of problems. I have been trough a lot, and I can't find someone to talk to. My parents know that I don't like it here, but still they think I'm happy. It sound so lame, but I'm sick of everything. If I could, I would move back to my birth country, where I do fit, where I feel happy...BUt you know what? I can't, and thats my life. All I ever loved or wanted is two thousand miles away. Do you think this is fair? What should I say to my parents? How can I deal with my anxiety and sadness?

Even though its hard try sitting down with your parents and explaining to them exactly what you are going through. Also if provided at your school, see if you can speak to a counselor there. They can also possibly speak to your parents as well with your consent. Try writing your feelings down in a journal to vent any frustrations you have. It will help a lot. If you like, if talking to them face to face is hard, write a letter to them detailing what you are going through. This just might get you moving in the right direction. If you need anything send me a PM if you are more comfortable with that.

Hey, well I don't really know if you still need help or if you feel good now, but I'm just going to tell you from my experience what worked for me. I am fat. You know like the chubby girl who always skips sports class? Yup, that's me. Well, I was really depressed for a really long time about my appearance and because of that everything else just simply didn't feel right. Because I didn't feel good and satisfied with my body, I just couldn't be happy. But you know what? **** them all. Talk to your parents about your feelings, really sit down and tell them and then tell them that you need money. Go and change your whole look. New hairstyle, new clothes, different style, start eating healthier, try to do some sports and believe me, you will feel way better. I did. Now I'm still fat and I'm still not the most beautiful girl on earth, but the things is, I don't care anymore. Tell your parents what you feel and tell them how serious it is, but you HAVE TO accept that you are not living where you once did. Just accept the way things are and start making life good for yourself. I love 1D and if you are maybe interested in books, you could read a lot of 1D fanfictions on "wattpad.com" it's great, everybody is expressing their fantasies and skills, so if you like reading or writing I recommend it. You really have to let go of the past with your birth country, I was 10 when we moved away from my birth country and I really was struggling for happiness many many years. If you don't have anyone to talk to, just come on this website or any other website that is created so that you can talk to other people and talk to a stranger who may understand how you feel. It's not that hard, I've done it, so you can do it too.
