Hi, I'm new to this community. I'm glad I found it. It seems like the kind of place where I can let my guard down and engage in conversation that is more than small talk.

I'm starving for a real conversation. I have my family to talk to, but there are things I'm afraid to tell them. It's not that I'm afraid that they won't love me, I just don't want them to see me differently.

I have one close friend that I don't see that often. I recently changed schools, and while I like the people at the new school, I haven't gotten close to anyone yet.

I guess I should tell you a little bit about me. I'm 16. I've struggled with anxiety, depression and eating disorders for years. I recently started to question my sexuality. I decided it was irrevelant for now, because I just got out of a relationship and am not ready for a new one.

I've recently started writing poetry. I'm not great at it, but I think I'm improving.

I tend to be quiet around others. I like to listen. I'm not good at approaching people, but I can carry a conversation pretty well if I'm approached.

I guess that's it for me. I was wondering if you guys could comment on this and tell me a little bit about yourselves.
