Q. This is Oliver 19 years old.I don’t like to talk to others, even to my parents. I don’ know why? This is Oliver 19 years old. I have no one to share my feeling, so I am writing here to get some advice. First thing is, I am black and fat, this makes me very depressive. I don’t like to talk to others, even to my parents. My younger brother is cuter than me. So I hate him, probably I cry every night especially when I listen to music. Sometimes I am forcing myself to cry, I don’ know why?

A. Hi Oliver, please share here with us your talents and hobbies and thoughts. We do not bite!
