Your Question

why do i feel like im wasting the persons time in live chat


Hi there and welcome to Ask Alex, 

Thanks for reaching out and for being so honest about how you are feeling. 

You have asked why you feel like you are wasting the person’s time in the Live Chat. 

It seems you could be feeling quite low, as your thought shows some hopelessness. We want to check with you if you are feeling unhappy and if there is anything in your life that is bringing you down. It seems you might be believing you cannot be helped or that you are not worthy enough to be supported. That concerns us and makes us think that you might be in need of some professional support, so you can figure out what is going on for you to feel this way and how to help it. 

First things first, though. Is there an adult close to you whom you trust? That could be a parent, a family member, a teacher, a couch or a neighbour. Someone who you could talk to and tell them how you feel. We know it can be difficult to open up about things that hurt us, but talking to an adult could open the doors to finding the right supports around you and to working on your mood. 

Sometimes we cannot think of an adult that could be there for us, but we would still want someone to talk to. If that was the case, remember Childline is here for you too. Our free phone service is 1800 666 666. If you don’t feel like calling, you can also use our webchat service, by clicking on the purple Messenger circle 

Please, do not hesitate to contact us again if you need further support. We will be happy to be here for you once more. 

We hope this helps! 

Take care,
