I don’t know how to go on
Hi there, and welcome to Ask Alex.
Thanks for reaching out with what’s going on for you. It sounds like you’re going through a tough time at the moment and you’re saying you don’t know how to go on. We think you are very brave as we know it can be difficult to talk about how you are feeling.
People can start to have these feelings or thoughts for many different reasons, such as a feeling of anxiety or low mood, feeling overwhelmed or experiencing a lot of stressors in their lives. We feel that being able to talk to someone about how your feeling can be really helpful. Do you have a trusted adult in your life that you could talk to, such as a parent, aunt, teacher or youth worker?
There are also many places that you can go to for advice about what to do when you are feeling like this. You can read some articles from Childline here: https://www.childline.ie/how-i-feel/. There are also organisations you can speak to about how you are feeling that can provide support such as Pieta House https://www.pieta.ie/ or the Samaritans https://www.samaritans.org/ireland/samaritans-ireland/.
We would also love to chat to you a bit more about what’s going on for you. You can contact Childline for free at any time of the day or night by calling 1800 66 66 66 or you can also chat with us live on https://www.childline.ie/ via the Live Chat button. Remember that you are not alone in this, and we would love to hear from you.
