Why don’t I have friends
Hello, you are very welcome to Ask Pat today.
You are asking the question “Why don’t you have any friends”. Would we be correct in thinking that you are telling us you do not have any friends just now?
Friendships can be difficult to make and keep. There are some articles on the Childline website which you may find helpful. You can find them here www.childline.ie/friends/ Have you ever spoken to an adult that you trust about your concerns? You have a right to talk to somebody and to get help and support around what is going on for you.
Sometimes it can be easier to talk to somebody that you do not know. If you would like to chat a little more, the Childline Team would be more than happy to hear from you. Childline’s phone service can be contacted at 1800 66 66 66. We also have a text service at 50101 and a web chat service through www.childline.ie . All these services are free, and are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They are confidential and non-judgmental. You are welcome to contact us on any of these services, whichever you feel most comfortable using.
We wish you well and hope to hear from you soon. Take care of yourself.
