  1. Hey @Apples101 Welcome to our community. I think that it sounds like your friends are just trying to do their best to make you feel better, but I think that what you need is to just be heard and be able to talk about your feelings in depth. Listening is such a good intervention on its own, and I just want you to know that we are very good listeners here and you can talk to us whenever you like. I just want to check, are you feeling suicidal at the moment? I may be being overly cautious, but I just want to check after what you said about how you don't belong in this world. If you are feeling this way, please know that it's okay and that you will get through this. I just need to see if you're safe or not before we can talk more about what's going on for you. Speak soon.
  2. Hey, That sounds really exciting. Do you have to go somewhere to train your voice or do you do it yourself?
  3. Hello @Winston Thank you for reaching out to us here at Ditch the Label. I just want to check in and see how you are doing? It sounds like there has been a lot of change for you, and I hope that you're doing as well as you can be. Can I ask, what has happened to your brother?
  4. Hey, Okay, so yeah, you're thinking of going down the route where you are clear about the end of the friendship. It sounds good that you're already spending less time with them and rarely messaging. If you feel like you need to say goodbye for good and that it would be helpful, then go for it. I would personally message them separately rather than as a group as it can be difficult doing this kind of thing together because people can sometimes gang up in a way. What do you think?
  5. Hey @Melody K I think that they are all great ideas, especially the one about being in a new environment if you can. Could you potentially have a little trip away? I think it would be good to get some space from where everything happened, and yeah, hanging out with your friends would be good too. When we go through a tricky time like this, it can be easy to forget what it's like to be happy and have a good time, so doing all of those things will be good for you. I'm wondering, have you spoken to your doctor about maybe getting some help for the depression? If so, how did it go?
  6. Hey, Yeah, I totally get that. Just so you know, I'm LGBTQ+, so you can ask me questions if you like?
  7. Hey, Thanks for coming to us about this. The Q&A has now closed, but I'm more than happy to speak with you about this if you like. I guess that home is supposed to be our safe place, and when we feel like we don't belong there, it can really throw us off balance, so I totally get why this is difficult for you. How are you feeling about everything? I hope you're as okay as you can be, but it's also okay to not be okay. Can I ask, do you feel like you will be able to sort things out at all with your roommates? Also, are there any groups or other people that you feel more connected with?
  8. Hey, Thanks for commenting. How is it for you having autism?
  9. Hey, I saw your other post abut this, so I've replied there.

    Hey there, I completely get why you are afraid of ending up alone, but this is a completely normal thing to feel when you are thinking of leaving a friendship group to connect with new people. Are there any clubs you could join? I guess it doesn't really matter if everyone knows everyone. Are there other people around your age you could hang out with?
  11. Hey @Melody K Yeah, I totally get why you are feeling this way after having such a difficult time throughout the pandemic, especially as you lost loved ones. It's completely normal for the anxiety to stay lingering for a while, but it's good that you're being open about it and asking for help. Can I ask, what things tend to help reduce your anxiety and panic? If you like, I can also share some tips with you to help with this?
  12. Hey @nothing12 Welcome to our community It sounds like these friends have really been making your life quite tricky, and it's a shame that they feel the need to do this for whatever reason. I think you are right: it would be good to move away from them and end the friendship. I think that there are two ways to go about this: you could either be pretty open and honest by saying that you don't want to be friends with them anymore, or you could go down the route of doing it gradually, such as responding less to their messages and not spending as much time with them. What do you think would be best for your situation?
  13. Hey -echo- Yeah, the new name will be a good next step. Can I ask, what is your new name? Also, do you have a plan for when you might start to take those next steps? I think you'll feel so much better when you start making those smaller steps towards living authentically.
  14. Hey @idk123gb Welcome to our community and thank you for opening up to us about this I'm wondering, what happened this year to make you start questioning your sexuality again? I think it's important to listen to what your gut is telling you and if you feel like you need to, maybe do some exploring to help find the answers you need. It's in our nature to want to know these answers straight away, but with our sexuality, it can take time and patience to fully understand. I'm wondering, what do you think would help you to help answer the questions you have?

    Hey @gnjeri It's such a shame that she is doing this to you. I'm curious to know, how did it come to this? Did anything happen in the lead up to her threatening this? Also, can I ask, have you thought about telling your parents or even speaking to the police about it?
