I sometimes feel lonely and left out because 3 years back I was diagnosed with HIV and now I feel worthless and I sometimes have suicidal thoughts so I don't know if I'm going through depression or what because I get mad easily and I'm sometimes quite and down.

We feel like it's really important to talk to and communicate your feelings to your loved ones. Perhaps you should communicate these feelings to the people who you feel hurt by because they might not know that they are causing you so much distress. We understand that it would be difficult to do so, but it could help save you and them from losing you. Maybe even talk to another trusted relative, teacher or school counsellor and they might be able to help the situation better. Another great place to go to is Childline SA.They will offer you counselling over the phone, in person and online.

Hi Springsters. I need closure and help to forgive my grandma. She raised me and I thank her for that. She used to treat me like a slave, doing all the house chores and prevented me from socialising. My older sister and I don't have the same father. So my grandma favours her than me cause she liked her dad, she and my dad have issues and she hates him. Now I feel like I'm being punished due to her sentiments about my dad. I just hate her for all that.

Hey Lottering, sorry for what you are going through. Sometimes people can be unkind and unfair to us in life and that's really uncool. You should consider telling your friend what you felt about what she did. See how she responds and decide if you want o forgive her. It's really good to share details about your life, but try to be more careful about what you share and who you share it with.

Hey Hanli... Am a 20 year old guy experiencing the same thing.. It all started so innocent ... We had a fight with my mom.. She lie to me everytime about serious matters.. So I decided to Leave the house for a week.. I thought of a place where there's no human being but just me.. I left my phone and everything home.. Went to the bush.. I wanted to kill myself but someone saw me.. He brought me back home.. That's when I started doing drugs.. They didn't seem to care about me at home.. A month passed by still in drugs. But one day while i was on my way to buy some drug.. I met a Pastor. He told me how dangerous and bad my life is.. He invited me to his church.. I didn't wanna go there but my heart kept pushing me.. I saw myself there.. They prayed for me.. aS we speek am out of drugs.. Am a church goer I got help in the name of Jesus... buT what hurts the most is that Me and my family still ain't close

Hi Hanli and Teebae. Thank you both for your comments. This must be a very difficult time for you both, considering running away from home is a big deal and I think you should both think about speaking to a friend, mentor or professional for support. There are people and places where you can seek assistance. 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.

I wouldn't say run. But if you can distance yourself from all that negativity for a bit you'll feel a lot better. Stay with a friend or maybe another family member? For a week or however long it takes for your family to value you for what you are.

Hi Philanqo. Thanks for your comment. Here's an article I think you should read http://za.heyspringster.com/sections/girl-stories/mother-16-matriculant-22/ The worst thing you can do is compare yourself to other people. Your journey has been different but that doesn't mean you can't achieve your goals or be successful. Hatred is a negative emotion. You need to remember your power and that you are capable of anything and you can achieve anything you put your mind to. Here's another article you can read to boost your confidence http://za.heyspringster.com/sections/my-life/your-confidence-check/

I also have a problem with my family they have totally rejected me at least if I had some support and love at home I would cope but they always judge me call me names I know I've done wrong and I've tried many times to show regret but they always treat me as an outsider Christmas is coming soon and they haven't talked about buying me new clothes or anything of that sort they bought their own things and ignored me I feel left out worse by my own family we are all girls and should be supporting one another but here I am being lonely and unloved when I talk to them they always remind me of my past and show total rejection towards me... How can I make them love me like their own family and understand that I don't need much from them but love and support this really kills me :(

Hi Nomcebo. Thanks for sharing your comment with us. It's great that you're still trying to complete school and I think it's important to pursue that dream still, even if you failed you can still do it and pass. With regard to your living arrangements, it must be very difficult to decide what you're going to do and it's not a decision that should be taken lightly. Have you spoken to a teacher, mentor or professional for support? Sadly, we can't talk to you directly but it might be a good idea to talk your feelings through with someone from Childline SA. Give them a call and 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.

Hi creamybutterfly. Thanks for your comment. Losing friends isn't always a bad thing. Sometimes you need to lose friends who aren't good for you and meet friends who have similar interests to you. You aren't boring, don't panic. Many people have had to make new friends growing up and it's part of life. Don't take it too hard, you'll be fine and now maybe focus on your studies because it's the end of the year.
