Hi imnoahok!

I'm sorry to hear that you are feeling sad. As a teenager, I was sad 24/7 and I wish I had advice for you on how to feel better, but I don't. I encourage you to reach out to others on this forum for support.

Also, remember to be intentional about taking care of yourself.

Hi, Noah!

I'm really sorry you've been feeling sad and unwanted. Those are really difficult feelings that can leave you feeling quite lost as a result. Is it okay if I ask what made you start feeling this way in the first place, Noah? You're welcome to talk about it further as much as you feel comfortable.

Engaging in things that lift your mood such as hobbies may help. Finding ways to express your feelings is a good idea such as creative outlets. Do you like to journal, or pursue art/creative writing? Those things may help you with an outlet for your feelings. It makes it harder to keep it inside.

Remember, God loves us all. He knows none of us are perfect and doesn't expect us to be, but loves us all the same. Take care and know God loves you.

Hi

I am sorry to hear you are going through such a hard time. We want you here! You don't deserve to go through this alone so I am really glad that you have reached out to us here.

Can I ask whether you are aware of anything that has triggered you feeling so sad off? Perhaps you are worried about something or you have been through something traumtic for example? If there is nothing, then that is okay and we'll still be here to help you through what you are going through. But I just wanted you to know that if there is something triggering this then we're also happy to listen and support you through it. Sometimes just talking about things can be a great help and a relief once you have talked about it and remember, we are only here to help and not to judge or think bad of you but you can always go at your own pace. We are not going to force you into talking about anything you don't want too!

Do you have anyone in "real life" to talk too? Maybe a family member, a friend, a teacher, a school counsellor or nurse or even someone such as your GP/Doctor. All these people care about you like we do and want what is best for you and we will be here as much as we can be and as much as you want to be (like a helpline) but sometimes people find it more beneficial to talk to someone face to face as well so maybe that could be something for you to think about.

Using distracions when you feel low might also help so anything like watching a film, being with others, going out with friends for lunch/tea or to the cinema etc, doing a sport like running or going to the gym, tidying up, cleaning, doing art and craft things, doing some volunteer work, writing, doing school work, playing a game and so on can all be helpful but remember not everything is going to help you so its about finding the things which do and not giving up when you find ones that don't.

You can do this and we're here behind you to support you all the way. Just remember not to be alone. You ARE loved and cared about and you have a bright future ahead of you and you deserve to experience that and I want to see you experience that. We're here for you, always.

Hope and wishes,
Jessie

Re: ive been so sad - February 4th 2017, 02:23 AM

Noah,

I am so sorry that you feel like no one wants you. That is a really tough thing to deal with. Do you have any brother/sisters, friends, family that you could spend time with and maybe be able to call them when you feel unwanted and ask them if they could hang out for a little bit. I know when I feel down I like to text my friends, or go over to their house and even if we just sit there on our phones or drawing, we just talk and she distracts me. Do you think there is anybody that could do that for you?

You say you are a christian, do you go to church? Maybe you could join a youth group for high school kids. Or does your high school have any clubs that may interest you? Maybe you could join one of them. These things can help not feel so alone because here are bound to be someone in those groups that understand what you are going through and would want to help.

Do you have any hobbies? Like sports, drawing, writing, playing music, singing, pretty much anything? Those things can help you not feel so unwanted because you are focused on doing that thing that you like and all your attention is on that, so you have no time to worry about other things.

School can be another really big thing that could help. You could focus all your time on your studies that way you have no time to worry about being unwanted.

I really hoped some of this helped.
If you ever need to talk, vent, advice,or someone just to listen to you my PM/VM is always open.

Your Friend,
Frankie<3
