I am looking for somebody to talk to
Hello I’m just kind of looking for someone to talk to because I’m kinda upset right now
Thanks for getting in touch with Ask Alex.
We are sorry to hear that you are feeling upset right now. It is really great that you have reached out to us and to hear that you feel talking to someone will help.
It is completely natural to feel upset from time to time and it’s good to acknowledge the feeling or emotion and to not fight too hard against it. It can also be useful to think about what just happened that triggered you to become upset and to allow yourself release it. For some people, the release might be talking about it, for others is it might be having a good cry or journaling.
It sounds like you would like to talk, so maybe think about what family members or friends you have in your life that you would be comfortable chatting to. It can sometimes be difficult to start the conversation but most of time, once you do, people can be very supportive.
