Im constantly sad, even after a really good day. I always just get a wave of negative feelings that bring me down and make me want to do something bad to myself. It happens all the time and I think my boyfriend is getting sick of it.

Answer

Hey there, thanks for reaching out to us,

We want to say that we hear you, and we’re here for you. It takes a lot of courage to reach out and talk about your feelings, especially when they’re tough to handle. Feeling constantly sad, even after a seemingly good day, can be incredibly draining and overwhelming. It’s like battling against a wave that keeps knocking you down, no matter how hard you try to stand tall.

It’s important to know that you’re not alone in this. Many teenagers experience similar struggles with their emotions, and it’s okay to feel the way you do. Sometimes, despite having supportive people around us, we can still feel like we’re drowning in negativity. It’s not a sign of weakness; it’s a sign that you’re human and going through a tough time.

We understand that it can be tough on your relationship with your boyfriend too. It’s difficult for him to see you in pain, and it’s natural for him to feel frustrated or unsure about how to help. However, it’s essential to communicate openly with him about what you’re going through. Sharing your feelings with someone you trust can help lighten the burden, and it can also strengthen your bond by fostering understanding and support.

Remember, you have options and resources available to you. You are never alone in this journey. The Childline team is here for you, ready to listen without judgment and support you through whatever you’re facing. Whether you prefer to talk over the phone (1800 66 66 66) or through Live Chat on childline.ie, Childline is open 24/7, every day of the year. You deserve to feel heard, understood, and supported, so don’t hesitate to reach out for help.
