Your Question

Why am I alive today

From Pat / 19 February 2020


Welcome to Ask Pat.

In your email you ask why you are alive. We would be concerned that asking this question might mean that you feel that you shouldn’t be alive.

Your life has a reason and a purpose and you can fulfill your mission/dreams and goals on earth yet.

You might find it helpful to talk to Childline about this. Childline is always here to listen and to support you.

You can talk to Childline by calling 1800 66 66 66 (24 hours a day), sending a text to 5010 or you can chat with Childline online at

Take care of yourself,

You can ask me about anything you want, there’s nothing too big or small.
