Answer

Hello there, welcome to Ask Alex!
 
First of all, thank you for reaching out and sharing how you feel. It sounds like you’re going through a tough time, and it’s completely ok to feel this way. School can sometimes be overwhelming, especially when it feels like you’re all alone. It’s important to remember that many others have felt the same way, and there are ways to make things better.
 
One way to start making friends is by joining groups or clubs that interest you. Whether it’s sports, music, art, or any other hobby, these activities can help you meet people who share your interests. Sometimes, it’s easier to connect with others when you have something in common. Don’t be afraid to take that first step – many times, people are more welcoming than you might expect.

With the school summer holidays almost here in Ireland, this could be a great opportunity to try new things. Consider joining summer camps or local community events. These activities not only help you learn new skills but also provide a chance to meet new people in a relaxed environment. It’s a wonderful way to spend your holidays and might help you make some lasting friendships.
