  1. Hey @Laylaaa How is everything at the moment?
  2. Hey @notkelly Yeah, I can imagine that this was a hurtful thing for you to hear. What do you think about how she would have preferred you to come out? How did that land with you?
  3. Hey, Yeah, totally. His reaction suggests that he doesn't accept and respect you, and you really do deserve so much better than that. I'm glad you made this decision for yourself and it seems like you feel positive about it all which is good. Is there anything else you would like support with for now?
  4. Hey there, Thank you for sharing that with me. I'm wondering, what kind of things did that person do to help you? Also, did you manage to read our self-harm support guide? If so, which tips do you think you'll try?
  5. Hello @fin 1 Welcome to our community. Thank you for opening up to us here. You've taken a really big step towards sorting things out for yourself, and it can be really hard to ask for help. I'm wondering, how long has this been going on for? Also, do you have an idea of where these feelings come from?
  6. That's so kind of you, thank you
  7. Hey there, Thanks for getting back in touch with us. I'm glad to hear that you have validated the desires you were experiencing; how have you been feeling since that happened? I'm wondering, can you tell me a little bit more about the guilt you're feeling?
  8. 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?
  9. 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?
  10. 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.

    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?
  12. 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?
  13. 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?
  14. Hello Lilly, I just want you to know that I've sent you a private message to check in on you.

  19. Hey, I just want to let you know that I've messaged you to check in and see how you're doing. Speak soon.
  20. 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?
  21. 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?
  22. 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?

  24. Hey Jess, How are you? We ask people to make a safety plan when they are feeling suicidal and like they want to take their own life as it helps them to stay focused. Have you heard of them before?
