Your Question

why am I here


Hi there,
First of all, thank you for reaching out to us. It takes a lot of courage to ask big questions like “Why am I here?” We want you to know that we hear you, and we’re here to help you find some answers or at least guide you through this journey of understanding. Your feelings and questions are important, and it’s okay to seek help when you’re unsure.
It’s not always clear what someone means by “Why am I here?” You might be wondering about the purpose of life, why things happen the way they do, or even why you felt the need to ask us this question. Both of these are valid and important. If you’re searching for the meaning of life, many people, including teenagers and adults, wonder about this. It can help to explore your interests, talk to trusted friends or family, or read about different philosophies and ideas.
If you’re feeling unsafe at home or just need someone to talk to immediately, please contact emergency services at 999 or 112. For thoughts about self-harm or suicidal feelings, it’s important to reach out to organisations like Pieta ( For general mental health support, Jigsaw ( and Aware ( are excellent resources. Remember, it’s crucial to speak to someone if you’re feeling overwhelmed.
Our team, Ask Alex, is made up of real people who are here to answer your questions and provide support too. We understand that it might be easier to talk to us rather than someone in your life. However, our service is not available 24/7.
