Resources

We encourage you to journal. Journaling is a helpful way to process our thoughts and feelings. Here are a few journaling prompts to get you started:

What was my mood like today? If I had to create a pie chart of my thoughts today what would take up the largest piece? Are you worried about anything right now? Write out all the details. What do you like about yourself? What do you dislike? Describe something that you are looking forward to? Create a list of things you are thankful for. What things are you avoiding dealing with? What do you need right now?
Make a list of the people in your life who genuinely support you and you can genuinely trust.

Another way to journal is to write letters to God. Share with God how you are feeling, what you need, and what you are hoping for. Remember that God loves you and loves to hear from you. We are encouraged to cast our cares on God for he cares for us (1 Peter 5:7).

Teen Chat Help Line

To better see how your life can be lived the best way possible, you must share the struggle you’re in. At RemedyLIVE they use meaningful conversations to allow you to unpack the secrets of their inner struggle and find hope through knowing someone cares.

By sharing your life with a SoulMedic through their chat software, you can begin to see and understand that your life has a greater purpose – that you are not an accident, and that you were created for something larger than the mistakes you’ve made. In fact, your mistakes, pain and struggle are indicators that you’re like everyone else on this planet.
