  • Hey Laura,

    Sorry to hear you didn't get the job. I remember when I started uni the first few weeks were an absolute whirlwind so your sister may not have had a chance to think about home much yet, I'm sure once everything settles down she'll be in contact more.

    It's great that you've been helping out at your preschool, what have you been doing there?

    I'll let...

    replied to Cutting hair after rape
    Hi

    I think perhaps some people do it to regain some semblance of control. After experiencing such a trauma it sometimes feels difficult to feel as though you are in control of your life but cutting your hair is a relatively easy way to remind yourself that it's you who has control over your body.

    It might also be a way to temporarily distance yourself from the person...

  • Hi Laura

    How are you feeling about it all at the moment? My brother's moving out on Saturday so I can completely relate, it's going to be difficult.

    Have you spoken to your sister much? How's she settling in? I'm sure she's missing you.

    What have you been up to since she's been gone? I know you said you had an interview, I hope it went well. Have you...

    Hi Hollie,

    Glad to hear you worked things out, I'm sorry you weren't dealing so well with the break up. I hope you feel better about the relationship now and that you feel that there's more of a balance.

    If you ever feel anything isn't working and would like some more advice or support then don't hesitate to get back in touch, we'll be here.

    Best of luck though....

    replied to Uncertainty About Own Mental Health
    Hi Cora

    It's great to hear from you!

    Just from the length of your question it shows that you are questioning a lot of things about yourself and your mental health right now. This is incredibly normal, especially when you have so many people in your life who aren't in the best mental health.

    I can't diagnose you with anything, I would recommend speaking...

    replied to Regaining trust after cheating
    I think this is a really tricky one. To have any hope of rebuilding trust then I would hope my partner would cut the other person out of their life. On the whole though it would just take time, I would want to see that they are trying to build trust just by doing little things consistently and by showing that they are thinking about how I feel. By putting more attention onto our relationship than...

    I'm so sorry to hear that you feel like this.

    You've said a lot about how you feel but do you think you could say why you feel like that. Sometimes it's very easy to get swept up in our emotions and get bogged down with any negative emotion effecting us that we lose track of what's happening. Things may feel bad but perhaps they aren't really as bad as they feel.

    If you...

    replied to Intimacy issues
    Hi Cookieshan,

    The two posters above me are right, never feel ashamed because you haven't had sex. A lot more people than you might think haven't had sex at 21 (or older).

    It's frustrating when anxiety stops you from meeting people. Have you spoken to anyone about your anxiety? It often helps to speak to a professional.

    Perhaps taking things slow with someone...

    Hi Soph9090

    Sorry to hear that you're worried about this but I understand that it can be a stressful situation to be in.

    As LaneBoi suggested, I would recommend taking another pregnancy test once two weeks has passed as there really is no other sure way to tell. If this pregnancy test comes back negative then there's no need to worry at all as they are nearly 100%...

    Hi Hollie

    Thank you for your question. It's very common to feel this way after a break up and wonder if we really should have tried harder to make things work.

    It sounds like you have really strong feelings for this guy but you shouldn't have to be supporting someone like this, and it sounds like your bank balance can't keep taking the hit. All relationships work...

  • Hi everyone

    Sometimes it's really tricky to know whether we want to be with someone because of how we feel about them or just because we want to be with someone. There are loads of reasons why people fear being single - perhaps because of low self-esteem or just because all their friends seem to be in relationships. It's important that we don't feel like we have to rush into anything...

    Hi Meggles

    I'm really sorry to hear that you're feeling this way. Firstly I want you to remember that you have support, you have your tutors and you have people on this website. Do you have any family or friends who you can talk to about how you're feeling? Often it helps to vent your emotions and just have someone talk through everything with you.

    Having just completed my...

  • Hi Laura,

    My little brother is starting uni too this year so I understand exactly what you're going through. Having gone through three years of uni myself I already know what it's like to be away from your sibling for so long.

    It's very normal for you to feel like you do. Have you spoken to her about it? I'm sure she feels much the same as you do so knowing that you're going...

    Hi Laura,

    I'm sorry that things aren't working out so well.

    First of all I hope you don't feel pressured to do anything that you don't want to with this guy. Sometimes we feel pressure to do things we don't want to with people because they're our friend or just because they're a nice person but you shouldn't feel as though you have to because of this.

    It sounds...

    replied to Adoption seen in a bad light
    Hi Laura,

    Thanks for posting, this is a really interesting topic to discuss. I think the first thing to consider is that everyone who has been through adoption will likely react to it in a different way and perhaps the woman on X-Factor was not trying to suggest that adoption is bad rather that her life before being adopted was not good. Whilst it was not necessary for her to bring up...
