You don’t have to be strong all the time

Having to be brave in life is something you have to do from time to time. It’s how we deal with changes and achieve things that are hard to do.

When your parents split up you may feel like you have to be brave a lot. You may have a lot of bad feelings to deal with. But you may also feel like you have to be strong to help everyone else feel happy.

Being strong for other people is a kind thing to do but if you’re having to do it too often it can make you unhappy. There are times when you have to look after how you feel first. Your a kid, you shouldn’t have the weight of the world on your shoulders.

If it’s safe, talk to your parents about how you’re feeling, or find a safe person to speak to.
