Hi there, and welcome to Ask Alex.
Thanks so much for reaching out with your question. We know that it can be difficult to talk about our feelings, so well done for getting in touch with us.
You have said that you have been falsely accused of bullying and you’re getting in lots of trouble. That sounds very frustrating to experience and it is normal to feel upset when we have been falsely accused of something. It sounds like you are going through a hard time and that you feel you are own.
You have the right to talk to someone about what you are experiencing, and you have the right to be listened to and to be respected. It sounds like you feel like your voice isn’t being heard at the moment. Do you have a trusted adult that you could share this with? Someone who you feel comfortable talking to, perhaps someone you’ve shared something with in the past. Often having a chat can help you to come up with a plan of action to allow you to move forward.
