Your relationships

The things that are happening in our personal and family life are often those that affect us the most.

Relationships are not only about our love lives with girlfriends and boyfriends, they are also about our family and friends and everyone around us that we love and care about.

Sometimes we can take these relationships for granted or forget just how important people are in our lives. Take some time to tell people that you care about them, give them a call, visit them or simply give them a hug. These are the people who will be there for you when you need support or simply a friendly face.

Not all of us are lucky enough to have family or friends around us and it is OK to feel upset or angry about this.

Without close relationships in our lives we may feel lonely and isolated which can make us feel sad and unhappy. If you feel like this is might be a good idea to join a local group or society which would be a great place for you to meet new people and make some new friends.

If you feel really unhappy you may want to speak to a trained counsellor about how you feel or ring a local helpline for support and advice.
