  1. Hey @notkelly Welcome and thank you for opening up to us here. How are you feeling now? I noticed that some time has passed since you made this comment. I'm sorry to hear that you're upset at the moment, but I can totally understand your reaction. From what you've said, I think that you handled coming out really well, and I'm curious to know, did your mother say how you should have gone about it?
  2. Hey @winter_lane3 Welcome to our community. I'm one of the digital mentors here and I give advice and support to our members for lots of different issues including sexual and gender identity, relationships, bullying, self-esteem, mental health, and much more. How is everything going for you at the moment?
  3. Hello Harry, Thank you for telling me more about what's going on for you. Also, I agree, the biggest priority now is to reduce how much you're self-harming, and even stop if you feel like that is possible right now. The important thing about self-harming is that it is a way of coping for many people, and it's essential to recognise and find other ways of coping to move away from it successfully. I'm wondering, can you tell me about a time where you've successfully coped with a mental health difficulty without hurting yourself? Also, have you seen our support guide on safe alternatives to self-harm? Maybe you can have a read and try a couple of strategies for the next few times you want to injure yourself: 15 Safer Alternatives to Self Harm - Ditch the Label Speak soon and take care.

    Hi

    Hello @Emberfrost12 Thank you for opening up to me and telling me more. I'm wondering, can you tell me more about the kinds of things you're contemplating and finding aggravating?
  5. Hey there, How's it going? I'm glad to hear that you said no as he was previously really disrespectful about your sexuality, and you deserve to be treated better than that. How did it feel saying no to him?
  6. Hey there, Ah, I get you; thanks for explaining. I think that being embarrassed can really make us all feel uncomfortable, and I'm wondering, how do you think that embarrassing yourself may impact your ability to make friends?
  7. Hello Lilly, I just want you to know that I've sent you a private message to check in on you.
  8. Hey there. I just want to let you know that I've sent you a message to check in and see how you're doing.

  12. Hey, I just want to let you know that I've messaged you to check in and see how you're doing. Speak soon.
  13. Hey Welcome to our community I'm glad to hear that you found it therapeutic to write this out. I do think that writing or saying our troubles out loud can be really good as it can help us to feel like the problem has less power over us; what do you think? I'm wondering, now that you've written it out, do you have any reflections/new thoughts about the problem that you explained to us?
  14. Hey, How are you doing today? Yeah, it would be good to take your best friend for that extra support when you do report as I think it will be really helpful. Also, I'm glad that you feel that they maybe will open their minds a little as time goes on. I think that there are plenty of parents out there who have the same views as yours at first, but when their child comes out, it really forces them to challenge their beliefs and become accepting because of that love they have for their child. What do you think?
  15. Hey there @shoyo Welcome to our community Thank you for telling us that you feel repulsed by sex. There are plenty of people out there who feel exactly the same, and that's okay. Sex just isn't for everyone, and that's more than okay. What do you think?

  19. Hey there, Ah, that's interesting. I'm wondering, where does that worry come from? Also, has there been a time when you've embarrassed yourself before and it's been okay? I know it has been for me, and probably plenty of others too. Hey Lilly, I just want you to know that I've sent you a message to check in and see how you're doing. Speak soon.
