Hey M Girls!
We have a BRAND NEW spin on the daily advice column on mmm-mag.com. Each day at 8:00 PM/EST we'll post a reader question and have our M Girl answer it!! Today, we're talking being too self-conscious to talk to your family about your feelings!!
M Reader JustinBluvr4eva asked: My parents split when I was 1 year old and I've been living with my grandparents ever since. Recently at school, everyone's been asking me why I don't live with my parents and it makes me really depressed. I'm too self-conscious to ask my grandparents that question, so I just keep it to myself all the time. It's really upsetting, though and I don't know what to do. Any advice?
And M Girl's answer is: "Your grandparents are obviously there for you, or they wouldn't have taken you in all these years. And I'm sure they'd like it if you'd ask them questions that are on your mind. After all, that's what they're here for! They want to take care of you and give you a happy life. So, if there's anything making you unhappy, you should tell them. Sit them down during a nice, quiet day and tell them that you've had a lot of things on your mind lately and you'd like to ask them some questions. I'm sure if you're open with them, they'll appreciate your feelings and want to help you. Try it out -- and let me know how it goes!"
