I feel shy and insecure as I have to take responsibility of my family

Question:  I feel extremely shy, insecure and things on my family front aren't good at all. I'm expected take responsibilities of my sister's life, mother's health and keep my grades up too. I have no one to talk to about it and I feel failing my life miserably. 

Dear Teentalker,

Thank you for attending the TeentalkIndia session at your school, for reaching out and sharing your concerns.

It seems like you are going through a LOT at the tender age and given the stage of life you are at, the responsibilities you are taking on can seem like too much to handle!

Teen years are typically supposed to be carefree where you have the opportunity to explore yourself and the world outside, but in your case, the situation seems to be a little different. You are forced to grow up at a very young age and take care of the family, instead of older people taking care of you and all.....
