Hi I'm minkie ...i had a best friend and we have been friends for 5 years. we were right happily friends and we had something common which was like hanging with our male friends , we use to have fun , hung together and appreciate each others company and every time when we do things we were doing them together even people thought we are sisters because we always together and we ended have something look alike . we were doing same grade and same subjects , there it comes I passed and she failed and still things were fine between us . last year we had a new friend which made things complicated between me and her since we were separated and she started losing interest at me and since I'm an introvert person I didn't ask her anything but my heart was broken, I leaved things as they are . I now don't have a bestie but I think I do need a company or bestie but I'm a shy and introvert person so its hard to make friends again .

Hi Springster, it really sucks losing a friend or someone who is close to you. We know that having company and support is a very important part of life so we can understand why you are feeling a bit down or concerned. We also think that it's important that you focus on yourself right now and see what other things you like doing on your own. It always helps to get to know yourself a little bit better to find out who you are, what you're good and how you can improve at other things like school. This doesn't mean you have to be alone all the time. To make sure that you have some support, try to see if you can talk about what you are going through with an adult that you trust. This could be anyone from a parent/guardian, older sibling, relative, neighbour or teacher. When you're ready to find friends you can try to do so by joining a club/community in or outside of school, doing after school activities, and doing other social things that allow you to interact with people more. Remember some people find it easy to make friends while it can sometimes be harder for others. Everyone is different, so this is only normal. All the best Springster, we're rooting for you!

Hi Mimosa, it's not always easy to find a true friend that you can connect with, so you don't have to feel so bad. You will find the friend for you eventually. Making friends is matter of socialising more by signing up for an extra-mural activity, or joining any other communities such as a church, a gym, a book club. By doing so you can meet other people and see if you connect with anyone. In the meantime, to make sure you have some support, try to talk to an adult that you trust so that you always have some form of support in your life. This can be anyone from a parent/guardian, a relative or neighbour, to a teacher in your school. If you ever feel down or something is happening to you, also try speaking to the people at Childline SA. They will offer you counselling over the phone, in person and online. You don't need to give them your name and can contact them any time of the day or night. Contact them if you are scared, feel alone and if something is happening to you, or someone you know. They are here to help you! Don't forget you can contact them on their 24/7 Toll Free Helpline: 08 000 55 555 for help.

Hey Nokuphiwe, we're not sure what's happened between you and your friend/s, but we hope you will eventually heal from that experience. Try to remember that whatever type of relationship or friendship you are in, it's never impossible for people to disappoint you. Still, it's important that we try to have people we can go to whenever we need that extra support or just someone to talk to. If you'd like to take a break from friends right now, that's okay, but we'd suggest that you have a trusted adult that you can talk to when you need some help or support. This can be anyone from your parent/guardian, to a teacher, or a neighbour. You can also call Childline SA if you need to. They offer counselling over the phone, in person and online. You don't need to give them your name and can contact them any time of the day or night. Contact them if you are scared, feel alone and if something is happening to you, or someone you know. They are here to help you! Don't forget you can contact them on their 24/7 Toll Free Helpline: 08 000 55 555 for help.

Hello бÊÊĨĜĤ Thank you for sharing your story with us. There is nothing wrong with having male friends. People will always judge but you can not make everyone happy. We hope this helps Springster.

I have 4 friends and 2 besties amongst.We do many things together (play,chat,go out but mostly study). One day at school between the six of us,only five of us got certificates ,we were happy but could not enjoy coz one of us did not get. We always encourage her to study hard but she always speaks about boys. A few days later ,learners at school say that we are the reason she could not get. I care for her but I don't know what to do to advice her to study.. Please help....
