Today my friends were extremely "clingy" and interactive with me. IDK why im normally really latent and ppl dont engage in me if i dont first. Im almost like a third wheel. They FOUGHT over me at lunch (who i'd sit by)! Also they are all suicidal (idk if that means anything). It just worries me. Plz reply!

Hey there,

First off, welcome to TeenHelp! I'm glad you reached out to us here.

I'm going to address the issue of suicide first. It's completely understandable that you would be concerned about your friends' well-being. If they are talking about suicide, I urge you to reach out to a trusted adult, such as a teacher or a school counselor, who can get them the help they need. This isn't something that you (or they) have to go through alone.

May I ask what you mean when you say they're suicidal? Have they talked about specific methods, or is it more general talk of wanting to die? If you have any text or social media messages in which they talk about suicide, I encourage you to save them and show them to an adult.

In terms of them being clingy, it sounds like you might be more popular than you give yourself credit for! You describe yourself as a "third wheel," but it doesn't sound like your friends see you this way. I was also really quiet when I was your age, and I was always worried that people only hung out with me out of pity. Now that I'm older I realize that that wasn't true at all! Sometimes the way we feel about ourselves doesn't always reflect reality; our mind definitely likes to play tricks on us. It sounds like you bring a lot to your friend group and your friends appreciate that.

I hope this helps some! Best of luck!

Kylie
