How do I make friends who are kind?
From Pat / 17 Jan 2020
Thank you for your email. It sounds like you would like to make friends with people who are kind.
This suggests that maybe you have been friends with people in the past who were not kind to you. If that’s the case, you might want to talk about what that was like for you and how it made you feel.
Childline is always here to listen and is a safe place to talk. You can contact Childline for free at any time of the day or night by calling 1800 66 66 66. You can also chat with us live on this website, or, if you prefer to text, you can contact Childline by sending a text to 50101.
It sounds like you do not want to be friends with people unless they are kind to you. You have a right to be treated kindly and with respect by the people in your life.
For some really good information about friends go to the Friendship section of this website. There you will find information about what friendship is, making new friends and fitting in.
Hopefully you will find this helpful.
Best of luck,
