Identity crisis
In the last two weeks our therapists have answered 211 queries related to mental health.

Hi guys I actually feel like I have a burden on my shoulders.My parents relocated to SA years before I was born they managed to get fraudulent identity documents so we can stay there and benefits as local citizens the problem is that I feel like I don't have identity.I love my country of origin and my home language but I can't speak it or embrace my self because that would raise flags and people would maybe be arrested.Right now I'm a teen and I struggle to make friends because I feel like there's no point of having a bestie if they don't know the real you.My ex and I separated because of the same issue.I always told him we were from different worlds and I never really explained what that really meant,the truth is that I miss him and most of the time he's always on my mind....I honestly feel like the world is unfair and I feel like I can never escape from reality 😢
