Stress

When all the pressures of work, school and relationships, it’s not surprising that we get stressed out sometimes. Stress can even be a good thing that helps us get things done and reach our goals. But if stress and the pressure to get everything right is interfering with our daily life, we need to find better ways to cope and reach out for support.

Anxiety

Worrying about things like getting everything done, our futures or what other people think of us, can be really overwhelming and make it hard to enjoy our daily lives. While stress can be a good thing, anxiety just holds us back. If anxiety is getting in the way of work, school or things you enjoy doing, then it’s time to reach out for help. Remember, asking for help is a sign of strength.

Sometimes thinking about our sexual orientation or gender identity can be hard, especially if not everyone supports us or if we’re worried what people will think about us. Fortunately, you aren’t alone these feelings and there are resources available.
