Coping with regrets, and moving on from shame, isn’t an easy process. It can take time.
Like with other problems we have, talking to other people can help us make sense of our feelings and find ways to move forward.
You might already have people in your life you know you can trust, and who support you even when you’ve made mistakes.
But if you don’t have anyone like that in your life, you can still get support. You can speak to us on our email service. These services are both anonymous, so you don’t have to say who you are.
There are also other helplines you can call – check out our Additional Support page for a list of places you can get help.
If you’re struggling with your mental health, your doctor, teachers, school nurse and youth workers are there for you. They can give you advice and information about local services that might help you.
If you’re feeling low and you’re worried you might harm yourself, please get help immediately. Either talk to an adult who can help you, call 999 or contact one of these support lines on our Additional Support page.
