My name is Lebogang,I just found out that I didn't make it in my final exams.I know it's not the end of the world but I can't help but to feel low right now.My friends keep saying that I shouldn't give up but it's hard not feeling a bit of my confidence slipping from me.I do have a plan of going to a TVET college to rewrite the papers I failed but someone told me doing the whole year again might help me,but that doesn't seem like a good idea,I need help😔😔

Hi TeeBae. Thanks for sharing your comment with us. You're not alone. Everyone feels down or unworthy from time to time. There are people and places where you can seek help. Often, being lonely makes you want to withdraw even more, but there could be people trying to reach out to you. Slowly gather supportive friends and loving people around you and consider speaking openly and honesty to your family and tell them the way they speak to you hurts your feelings. Having people in your life that you can talk to will help you cope with your disappointment, loss, loneliness or sadness. Sadly, we can't talk to you directly but you can call 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 suicidal, depressed or feel alone. They are here to help you! Contact them on their 24/7 Toll Free Helpline: 08 000 55 555 for help. Check out their website: http://www.childlinesa.org.za, Facebook and Twitter page for useful information.

Cutting doesn't help❤ Keep a journal, has the same effect that cutting has, it's just way safer...

Hi Springster, it is normal to feel low at times and things can get hard in our lives, we all go through it. Cutting is damaging to your health, we suggest finding another way to deal with your pain. Whether it is keeping a journal or speaking to a close friend or trusted family. If you have no one in your life that you trust, you can call Childline on 08 000 55 555 (It's free, you don't need airtime) and they will be there for you when you need to talk to someone.

Hi Yola, there is nothing wrong with you. It is perfectly normal to be quiet and to want your space and be alone. If the problem is that you are scared to speak to people, read the Springster article called Is Your Confidence In Check for tips to boost your confidence: http://za.heyspringster.com/sections/my-life/your-confidence-check/

At what age can you start dating and what should you do if your boyfriend gives you mixed signals

Hi Kitty_4. Thanks for your question. Dating and having sex is different. If you just want a best friend who is a guy and who is your boyfriend then you can date at any age. If you're planning on dating and having sex then you should know that the legal age of consent is 16 in South Africa. Don't rush into anything, if your boyfriend is giving you mixed signals then maybe give him some space to figure out what he really wants instead of wasting your time.

Hey, Sprngster thank you for your comment. There is no starting age for dating but dating does come with emotional risks and you should be sure that you are emotionally ready to start dating.

I always feel like that most of the time... Its like I'm somebody of no importance... I tried so hard to overcome that but I couldn't.... But at least I'm trying n I feel like im getting somewhere even thou I sometimes break down.... I told myself to be strong Everyday I talk to myself , I advice myself... I tell myself that I cannot be like other children... I don't live in a fancy house , m nt popular at school , I don't hv fancy phones like them.... But I also told myself that I will stl rise... I wanna make myself proud.. I told myself that one day I will hv those fancy stuff... I will buy thm for myself.... I will make it in life😊

Hey Springster, thank you for sharing. If you spend your days comparing yourself to others you're bound to be unhappy. Don't focus on what others have because it blinds you to the good in your life. Try getting to know the people in your group and form real connections with them.

Hey Springster! Thank you for sharing. Your relationship is between you and your partner. Don't let the negative comments from your family members make your doubt the love that you and your partner share. If you breakup with your boyfriend do it because it's something that you have decided to do for yourself and not because of the negativity from your family. And if you decide to stay - stay because you want to and it's right for you. Prepare yourself for the fact that things won't be easy moving forward. But if your bond is strong enough - you will be fine.
