  • Hello, you guys. I am Gingerpaw (It is not my username but I am hiding my name because there are people that know my profile). I have a problem.
    I think I am asexual. For somehow reason, I don’t like (romantically) anybody and I don’t feel affection to them. I am not 100% sure, but when I took the test it said I was. What do I do? Should I confront my

    • *hugs* Did your comment get cut? *hugs* Maybe someone else on the blog should help *more hugs* Not that I don’t want to *even more hugs* Just that I don’t exactly understand what that means *and even more huuuuggggggssssss*

    • Don’t worry! You don’t have to figure yourself out right now. There is still plenty of time to decide who you are. 🙂
      *Hugs*
      *Hugs*
      *Hugs*

    • If you don’t like anybody romantically, that probably means you are aromantic! 🙂 Aromantic is defined as someone who experiences little to no romantic attraction to other people. But remember that you can always pick your own label, change it or keep it – do whatever you want with it – or go without any labels at all! 🙂 *huggles*

    • If you don’t like anyone romantically or in anyway then you may be asexual and aromantic !! That’s entirely valid and you don’t need love and romance in your life to be happy
      It might be worth doing some more research into different labels to check what fits you and watching videos by aromantic creators might help you see that.
      Whatever your sexuality is you’re valid <333

    • I believe that not feeling romantic attraction to anyone would be aromatic, not asexual (someone correct me if I’m wrong). But you’re still apprentice age! You have so much time to figure out who you are; you don’t need to put an exact label on anything yet if you don’t want to! I mean, I didn’t like anyone until I was ten years old, and then I went two years before liking anyone again, and since then it’s been three years since I’ve liked anyone so what I’m trying to say is that just because you don’t like anyone now and haven’t yet, it doesn’t necessarily mean you never will. And if you find that you are aromatic, that’s perfectly fine! The point is, you have time to figure out who you are. You don’t have to put a label on anything yet. Take some time to think about it, maybe do some research, and know that whoever you find out you are is perfectly okay and wonderful!

  • please please please guys stop making self deprecating humor make more jokes about praising yourself

    i rather have these self praising jokes like “wow i made a sandwich today that’s pretty great of me” or “hmm yes i woke up today that’s pretty nice of me” boost your confidence and ego rather than self deprecating jokes like “haha garbage that’s me!” or “forever sad 24/7!!!” that actually lower your self esteem

    stop beating yourself up rather fight back the negative thoughts and fill them up with more praise

    • Yes! I actually recommend jokingly bragging about anything you do 😛 (to an extent of course)

      You got a B on a test? “Someone call Einstein, I’m coming after his job!”

    • Agreed! <3 Better to be kind to yourself, because you are worth being kind to and cared for 🙂

  • Hi everyone! I am posting this because I need some hugs.
    One of my favourite cats recently died of a sickness, we had to give one away, and I couldn’t find my favourite one today. I am very sad, and to make it worse I was the last one who saw the cat who died of a sickness alive. I said something to her that makes me cry whenever I think about it. Please send hugs. :`(
    I also am always feeling stressed and tired, and dehydrated. I’ve been trying my best to be as active as I can be on BlogClan, and I am very active on the Wikia, but I feel like I’ve missed out on so much and I miss you guys like crazy. <3 I've been very cranky, and I'm always going to sleep at something like 12:00. It's really affecting me.

    • I’m really sorry, Coldheart.
      It’s really horrible, loosing pets, and I’m so so sorry. But I bet she had the best life possible with you, and now she happy, and is watching over you and her friends. Try not to think about it, then. Whenever the bad thought comes, replace it with something good! Like good memories with your cat, a favorite food, or something fun that happened today. 🙂
      Take lots of deep breaths, and try to drink a lot of water. Water always makes me feel better after a stressful day. <3 Just set a goal, like you'd like to drink 3 or 4 cups a day, and draw a cup of water for every glass you drink.
      Don't worry, we all have lives outside of BlogClan, and many times, it's just more important! Whenever you feel like it, we'll always be here for you! I don't think we could ever forget you, because you are so kind, wonderful, and smart. <3
      *Hugs*
      *Hugs*
      *Hugs*

    • It’s okay Coldheart! Losing a pet can be vey nerve wracking! About you saying something bad to her , we all get frustarated with our pets! I know I get annoyed with my cat! Your cat probably forgave you, for you loved her for who she was! Don’t let a lost animal (or 2) affect your health, and try to forgive yourself as well! Start getting more sleep, and don’t worry about missing out, we all do! Get more sleep and drink more water, and make sure you know that you are amazing just the way you are! About the cat you couldn’t find? She’ll probably come back soon! Most cats that know you love them do! And being stressed and tired thats probably because of your sleep problem to! Remember to forgive yourself and you’ll be okay! Here are a bajillion hugs from me

      *Hug*
      *Hug*

      And so many more!

    • I’m so sorry, Colide. *hugs* Losing pets is always hard. Sending you lots of love. <333

      Drinking a glass of water first thing when you wake up in the morning helps me feel more energized and helps to start off my day. Try drinking water whenever you feel your dehydration coming on, or perhaps even before! Water is the best choice for whenever you are dehydrated. 🙂 If you are so dehyrated that you feel sick, drink water in small sips. I got overheated twice in my life and drinking felt like the last thing I wanted to do. I started out slowly and eventually my body was able to handle more.

      If you can, try your bedtime routine an hour (or maybe a half hour) earlier than you normally do. It'll then be earlier in the night for you to get to sleep. And don't worry about missing BlogClan things! All comments don't get modded at the same time and all pages don't grow at the same time, and we all have real-life things going on outside of the Blog, and that's okay. 🙂 <33333

    • *hugs, hugs, hugs,hugss* I hope you and your cat’s get better, and I’m so sorry about your cat that died and the one you had to give away and the one that is missing, I hope you feel better soon. *hugs, hugs, hugs, hugs*

    • *Hugs*
      *Hugs*
      *Hugs*
      I am really sorry to hear that, Coldheart.
      My bird Juniper died several month ago and I was soooooo sad.
      But I thought she’s in StarClan now and very happy.
      Your cat is in StarClan, too. Believe it.
      And when you think about her/him, think about the happiest thing an happiest time you have~
      *Hugs*
      *Hugs*
      *Hugs*

    • Wha…. your cat died? I’m so sorry Coldheart. Losing all your cats would be so horrible. The good thing is your favorite cat is now in StarClan, watching you like how you took care of her/him/them.
      *Hugs for the rest of the day*

    • *Many Hugs* losing a pet is hard. 🙁 I’m sure you gave all your cats the best life possible. <3

      You don't have to be active all the time. <3 We'll still know you care about us if you take a break, and if you do end up missing out on something it's easy to go back and catch up. 🙂 Make sure you drink lots of water and try to get to bed earlier.

    • *hugs* I’m really sorry Coldheart; losing a pet is always hard. Try to drink plenty of water to help with dehydration and try to sleep earlier. To help with trying to sleep, maybe lay down and try to empty your mind. *Hugs*

  • Sorry for all these complaints. I’m just a bit stressed at the moment.

    1. Me and my dad were coming home from a friend’s house (Falconpaw and Crowpaw..remember them?), and at the cross road, we saw someone have a motorcycle accident. The man was lying unconscious at the side of the road, with many people around him. I don’t know who he was, but can you please send him some hugs? He’ll need it, because he didn’t look so good.
    2. And since we are already talking about injuries, I kinda want to be a doctor when I grow up, but I’m pretty squeamish, and afraid of sickness. So…yeah. Not very handy.
    3. We are moving really soon! I won’t be able to get on BlogClan for a whole month. From June 1st to July 1st. Not only am I stressed about moving, I’m also going to miss you guys!!!
    4. I wrote a long essay about this problem on page 525. 😛
    Again, sorry for complaining so much. Thank you so much for always being here for everyone, though. You are all kind, smart, and wonderful. <3

    • A WHOLE MONTH?! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! You’ll miss the GATHERING! And if you miss the gathering, I will be super sad because it’s my first gathering! Hmmm… Could you ask you parents to have a device to talk to us? I will be super sad if you don’t get to be at the gathering. Oh! I know! Here’s a gathering of hugs!
      *Hugs*
      *Hugs*
      *Hugs*
      *Hugs*
      *Hugs*
      *Hugs*

      *Hugs*
      (And many more)

    • 1. *hugssss* I’m sure he’ll fine since there were a lot of people, someone likely called the paramedics 🙂
      2. If you’d really like to help people, you could look into therapist jobs? Like physical therapy or even just medical jobs that don’t deal too heavily with things that make you uncomfortable?
      3. We’ll miss you!!! We’ll be here when you can get back on <33333
      4. I'd recommend drinking lots of water!
      *huggggggggggsssss* <3333333

    • 1. Sending hugs and prayers for him. I really hope he’s alright.
      2. There are many different types of doctors. Many don’t deal with blood or sickness, so I’m sure you’ll find a job where you can help people comfortably.
      3. We’ll miss you, too! But we’ll be here waiting for you when you get back and then we can chat again. 🙂

    • 1-*Hugs* I hope he’s alright.
      2- You can still be a doctor, even though you’re afraid of sickness and squeamish! I would suggest researching a bit and looking for a medical career that doesn’t involve too much blood or dealing with a lot of sickness.
      3- Good luck moving, and we’ll miss you here! <3
      4-*hugs* I don't really know how to help here; just keep getting help when you need it!

  • Hi, I have something I’m sorta struggling with. Lately, I’ve been feeling… weird? Like, mentally. Thoughts on “What’s life for?” or “What’s my purpose” is echoing around in my head. I don’t know why. Is it my depression coming back? Is it normal? I need some answers…. I’m so confused and anxious.

    • Each of us has a path we’re supposed to take, and you have your own path in this world even if you don’t know it right now 💕
