Some days I feel so sad
What to do when im feeling sad
Hi, welcome to Ask Alex.
Thank you for reaching out to us; we know it’s not always easy, but we think you are brave for seeking support.
It is normal to feel sad sometimes. However, if it becomes a constant state of being for you, it is time to talk and share these feelings with people you trust. Have you thought about explaining this feeling to a trusted adult in your life, a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or an adult that you feel comfortable talking to?
If you have reached out to others, and you still feel sad, try not to be discouraged. By taking action, you are showing yourself that you do not want to stay like this forever, and you are looking for ways to improve your everyday life.
It is important that you understand why you are feeling sad and to look at ways that can make you feel happy because you have the right to be happy. When we are feeling sad, it can also help to practice self-care. This could be practising a favourite hobby, having a bath, listening to your favourite music, watching your favourite movie, or spending time with family and friends. Here is an article from the Childline website that may be helpful for you: www.childline.ie/what-to-do-
