Answer

Hi there, and thank you for contacting Ask Alex.
 
Firstly, can we say how brave you are for reaching out to Ask Alex! You talk about someone in your school called X. She’s being very mean and jealous, trying to upset you.
 
No one has the right to make you feel like that. Have you tried talking to the girl about how she’s making you feel? We wonder if you’ve also spoken to a trusted adult about what is happening at school. You have the right to get help and support and to talk to someone about how you are feeling about what is going on in school.
 
Sometimes talking about what we are going through with a trusted adult can help us make decisions. Do you have a trusted adult you can speak to about what’s going on for you? This could be a family member, teacher, youth worker, or neighbour.
 
This adult could also assist you in addressing the situation with the school if the girl continues to upset you.
 
If ever you need to talk about it and you don’t know who to go to, please know Childline is here for you. We will listen and support you whenever you need it. You can call us at 1800 66 66 66 or use Live Chat on our website www.childline.ie. The team is here for you 24 hours a day, every day. You never have to go through anything on your own.
 
Take care of yourself, and reach out for the support you deserve real soon.
