Topic: Lonely and sad

Your Question

What do you do when you are lonely and sad and have no friends to hang out with?

From Pat / 28 Jan 2020


Thank you for your email.

Sorry to hear that you are feeling sad and lonely. It sounds like you would like to make friends some one to hang out with,

This suggests that maybe in the past you had friends that made you happy and you liked hanging out with them. Have you thought about joining a club or sport or hobby that other people may attend with the same interest?

There is some really good information about friends in the Friendship section of this website. There you will find information about what friendship is, making new friends and fitting in.
