  1. Hey Saphira, Thank you for telling me that. So, by talking revealing this part of yourself, what do you think then might happen?
  2. Hello Saphira, I'm glad to hear that you had a funeral for him. How was it? Have you laid some flowers for him?
  3. Hello, I really am so sorry to hear about all of this. I cannot imagine how this must have affected you, but I just want to say that I'm really glad you're opening up about how it is for you as this will help you to figure out a way through it. I think it's best if we continue to talk over the confidential support option, so I will message you back there now. Speak soon.
  4. Hey Lily, That's lovely; how old is she? I'm wondering, if you could ask the person who knows you best to describe three things they like about you, what would they say?
  5. Hey @justdoit Welcome to our community. My name is Monsoon and I'm one of the digital mentors here. It's pretty hard to know why your friend would show you the invite and then not invite you herself. I'm wondering, why do you think she did that? Could it be that she just assumed you were coming anyway?
  6. Let me know if you haven't received it yet.
  7. Hey Lily, I just want you to know that I've sent you a private message so we can talk there.
  8. Hey Lily, Yeah, I will send you a message now. Speak soon.
  9. Hey there, Yeah, it sounds like a really good idea to speak with her. Maybe you can let us know what she says?
  10. Hey Lily, I'm sorry to hear that he did that to you. I really cannot imagine how that must have made you feel and what kind of impact that has had on you, but I just want you to know that I am here for you if you ever want to talk about it. I'm wondering, have you told the police that he did that? I thought I would ask because I remember you mentioning that the police are helping you to leave him. How are you feeling?
  11. I really love this idea so much. Can I ask, what is a quality of yours that you love?
  12. Hey Lily, I'm glad to hear that it was amazing for you. Can I ask, when you did feel that way, what things did you love about yourself?
  13. Hello, I'm really glad to hear that you think you're safe at the moment. I'm wondering, could that change? I guess I'm wanting to know, has he put you in danger before? I know that this might be hard to answer, and if you like, we can speak about this privately if it helps; just let me know. I'm here for you, Lily.
  14. Hi Lily, I'm sorry to hear that you are feeling rubbish. I noticed that you posted this four hours ago, and I just want to check, are you feeling any better now? Has something in particular happened today?
  15. Hey there, Sure. Can you see the 'Confidential Support' tab at the top of the page? If you click on that, you can speak to us over pms.
  16. Hey there, I think it can be really tricky to find the balance between looking after yourself and also doing things for others, and I guess it's different for everyone depending on their life situations. I find it interesting that you think it is making you a bad friend, and I'm wondering, can you tell me a little bit more about that?
  17. Hello Lily, Thank you for sharing that with me. I think it’s really positive that you’re helping others to stand up too and I’m sure you’re doing a great Jon of that. I just want to check, are you now safe from the person who abused you? Or is this your current partner?
  18. Hey there, You're right; there are so many injustices in the world, and when we really think about it, they often come down to the most ridiculous factors, like where we are from, the way we look, how much money we have, and even our skin colour as you said. It sounds like the kids in your class aren't treating you very nicely, as well as your friend at youth group. I'm wondering, have you both spoken to the adults in charge there about what's going on? They will be able to help you out. Also, I totally get what you're saying about being tired of hiding who you are. Can I ask, when you say that you will be putting yourself in danger if you don't hide who you are, are you able to tell me a little bit more about this?

    Hey @Star23 Thank you for telling me more about how your mental health is at the moment. I do think it's good to be aware of how we are feeling and explore things that we can do to help ourselves when struggling; we all have mental health that we need to nurture, the same way we do with our physical health. You won't get into trouble here - your experiences are valid and we are here to support you From what you've said, it kind of sounds like you're putting a lot of pressure on yourself at the moment. do you think it's fair to say that? I guess that the main thing that helped me to notice that was when you said you did awfully on your chord test, but then said that you got a B+. That is good, right? It does sound like you're having a hard time at the moment, especially with the panic and anxiety. I'm wondering, do you know what kind of things help you to calm down when you're feeling this way?
  20. Hey, That's okay, just try your best. It might be good to think about differences in the way you talk and the way you act around each other now. I guess my thinking is that although you've described it as a platonic friendship, it actually kind of sounds like you're becoming more intimate. What do you think? How does that feel for you to hear?

    Hey @Star23 Okay, so from what you've said, it sounds like entering an environment where you were different in height led to you starting to think this way about yourself. Is that fair to say? I guess I'm wondering, although you aren't feeling good about your weight, are there things about your appearance that you do like? If so, would you like to share with us?
  22. Hey, Yeah, you make a good point. Although it's really hard to lose a pet we love, it can sometimes be comforting to know that they aren't in pain or suffering. Maybe you could hold a funeral for him to have a proper goodbye, what do you think? I hope your feeling better today.
  23. Hey there, Yeah, as you said, you're just human, and we have to process difficult experiences, and I guess that sometimes is much easier said than done. It really does sound like you're carrying a lot of weight right now, and I can imagine that you're feeling really dragged down by all of this which is completely understandable. I'm wondering, what has helped you to cope when you've struggled in the past? We all have certain things we do to get us through difficult times, and I like to explore this area with the people that I support. I hope to hear back from you soon.
  24. Hello @Lillyrose4 How are you feeling now? It's pretty common for those who are being abused to feel like it's their fault, however, when someone is abusive towards you, it is all on them, not you. As I said, it's really common to feel this way, and it can take a while for someone to realise that didn't do anything, because that person makes them feel like you deserve it. What do you think? Also, I'm really glad to hear that the police are working with you. What kind of help have they given you so far?
