Your Question

my mom smashed my phone how do I process my emotions


Hello there, thanks for getting in touch!
It sounds like you’re going through a tough time right now. First of all, we want to say that we’re really sorry to hear about what happened with your phone. It must feel incredibly frustrating and upsetting to have something important to you damaged like that, especially by someone close to you like your mom. 
It’s completely normal to feel a whirlwind of emotions right now – anger, sadness, confusion, you name it. Processing those feelings can be really tough, but it’s important to give yourself permission to feel them. Bottling them up won’t make them go away; instead, they might just linger and affect you in other ways. 
Talking about what happened can be a helpful way to start processing your emotions. Whether it’s with a trusted friend, family member, or even a teacher, expressing how you’re feeling can provide a sense of relief and validation. 
You can also try talking to your mom when you are both feeling calmer. Here is an article that can help you get started
