A note from BlogTeam: From now on, we will no longer moderate comments on the Hug Page that go into specific detail about events. Instead, commenters will post in a vague manner, such as “I’m having a bad day, I could really use some hugs”, and other BlogClanners are welcome to provide comfort and support. This change is not because of any specific event or person, but because it is extremely difficult to mitigate questionable comments and determine what parts of certain comments are suitable to moderate, as well as making sure that replies with advice are in no way harmful to the original poster or others. If you ever feel like you need advice about a serious situation, you are welcome to reach out to BlogTeam, because your health and safety is our top priority. However, no one on BlogTeam is or has ever been a mental health professional in any way, and all we can do is provide advice. We implore you to always reach out to a trusted adult or hotline (listed above) about a situation that worries you. You are still welcome to come to the Hug Page if you need any hugs or comfort from your BlogClan peers, but the cause of your distress can no longer be explained——no matter the situation. Thank you so much for understanding <3


  • Guys, I know I comment a lot on the hug page, its because this is where I feel everyone understands me. So I need help… again. I got a really high score on a test and it was high enough I got into an advanced class at my school. I told my friends in my group chat many times, not thinking how they would react. I have the worse memory, and forgot if I told them or not so I told them again. hours later after the chat, I tell them again, like I said, I have bad memory. So today my bff tells me that I need to stop bragging and I’m conceited. Im so sad I apologized many times. I was still scared if they were still mad at me.

    • You could always go back and check if you’ve said something before. And if you told your friend that you have a bad memory I’m sure they’ll understand 😛

    • I’m so sorry, Petal. I’ve been in your place and sometimes it makes me scared of actually telling people about what I’m proud of because it might make other people think that I’m bragging. Talk to your friend. It’s natural to feel proud that you did something great (getting the high score and getting into the advanced class) and that you want to tell people. Your friend has to understand if you tell them you forgot. You’re not conceited!

  • Part 2) I was going to ask my mom for help and what to do, and she told me I was going to get a new phone, and I feared if I told her that my friends thought I was concieted would make her not want to get me one, so I didn’t. I even looked to an A.I. Theripist for help!! I’m an overthinker and I just feel so scared like, what if she doesn’t want to be friends anymore!? Please help whenever they point me out for something wrong my stomach feels like it has butterflies, my worries kick in, and its all I think about! I’m so saaad please help TvT Be my friend??? TvT TvT

    • Look, I personally think you should tell your friend everything that happened because that’s really what friends are for. It was all just a misunderstanding.

  • what does one do when so depressed they struggle to find motivation for even basic tasks :’)

    • One takes deep breaths, talks to a trusted adult, or listens to motivating music. (I know the last advice is silly, but it works for me 😛 )
      Here are two motivating songs:

      You can do this. You are smart, brave, amazing, strong, and beautiful. Fight for the ones you love and fight for yourself. Try. Try because you can do it.
      And everything will be okay. 💖💖💖

    • I sometimes have depressive moments when I don’t want to get up from bed, so when that happens I tell myself, “ok so if you get up from bed you can eat breakfast and that will help you because you are hungry and don’t you want to stop being hungry?” and try to be logical
      If that doesn’t help I look at something happy, maybe a good or funny memory, or a photo, and while I’m feeling a bit happier I do stuff.
      Hope that helps! *hugs*

    • Do little things! If you don’t have enough energy for a shower, brush your teeth. If you can’t clean your room, clean off your desk, etc etc. Just take the big, daunting tasks, and do a little bit of it.

      It’s better to do a little than nothing at all! <33333 *hugsssss*

    • I don’t think your mom hates you. What I think you should do is talk this over with your mom. Tell her exactly how you feel about what she said. Good luck 🙂

    • I’m so sorry! Try reaching out to a therapist to help you! I don’t know what else to do besides that.

    • Flamepaw, that sounds terrible. You definitely deserve not to be treated like that. Maybe you could talk to her about how you feel, but if you don’t feel safe doing that, you could talk to someone else, for example a trusted adult or even a friend. I’m so sorry!
      *hands Flamepaw a box of more hugs*

    • How did she say it? Was it like a joke? If so, then she’s probably just playfully annoyed. My mom has some form of claustrophobia, so she’s uncomfortable with touch under certain contexts.

      If it was serious, I’d keep my distance for now. If anything like that happens again (like she threatens or hurts you) you should tell a teacher or trusted adult.

    • I’m sure it will be ok. She probably was just bluffing. Do you have any other gaurdians you can talk to about it? Reach out and tell them if you’re still worried about what happened.

    • Oh, I’m so sorry Flamepaw! I’m sure your mom doesn’t hate you. Maybe she was just having an off day. Try talking to her about how that made you feel. *hugs* *hugs*

    • *ALL THE HUGS IN THE WORLD* I agree with the others. You should try talking to someone and maybe ask her if she was joking around or not because parents do things like that. “If you don’t stop I will take away your Ipad!” *You keep doing it* *Parents don’t take Ipad away* So maybe she was just saying it. But if ANYTHING like that happens again please contact an adult immediately! Hope life gets better! <3 ~Skytail

    • Flamepaw I’m so sorry! If you feel like she was serious definitely talk to another trusted adult ASAP. Good luck!!!

    • Im so sorry Flamepaw! UM I dont really know what to do, but maybe talk it to your mom?? But, we are here for you. All of BlogClan :DDD
      *Comes in and gives hug cats*

    • Oh no! I’m sorry, that sounds horrible!
      If you think she was serious, please tell a trusted adult right away.
      Everything will be okay.

  • I’m so frustrated right now.
    My neighbor’s son and his wife(or girlfriend) are staying with her and it’s been for like weeeeeks.
    That’s fine and all, but here’s the thing-
    The son has a dog that makes the most squeakiest noises all the time, like a literally squeaky toy.

    And every morning, at 7:00 AM, they go outside with their two dogs who are barking loudly and playing, and have coffee and talk. IN 7:00 AM!!!!!!
    Isn’t there a law against that or something???
    And it’s Sunday. Great. It’s been happening every morning.

    Because it’s super hot I have to leave my window open but they have to be annoying mouse-brains in the morning.
    Just super frustrated.

    • Maybe you can try going to tell them that it bothers you because they probably don’t know they’re bothering you. Instead of leaving your window open could you perhaps use a fan? Or maybe find something that blocks on the noise.

      Good luck!

    • I’m sorry! That does sound super frustrating.
      Maybe write them a note and stick it on their door? You can’t ask to keep their dog quiet, but maybe you could ask them to be more quite in the morning.
      If not, then hang in there! They will probably go away soon. ^^

  • Ok, compared to other problems, this might seem small, but here it goes. I need some advice in the love department.

    My whole life I’ve never wanted to date anyone or get married. I don’t want someone else to rule me or treat me horribly. I’ve been afraid of this my entire life! But today, I saw this one kid at church that normally annoys me to pieces and I got excited. I thought “well, must be nice to see someone you know” and then moved on. Then he made a joke and winked and I have to admit, I blushed. What’s happening? I need help asap!

    • Aww, you have your first crush 🥰 Don’t worry, it usually just gives you butterflies and makes you nervous all the time, but mainly your first crush is adorable puppy love 💕 If you need help in the crush department, just shout me out on this page 🙂🙂

    • I haven’t really Been in a situation like this but here’s some advice
      1: if you really get a bad case of a crush you’ll mabye have to confess
      2:speak to adult in your family or a close cousin about it
      3:mabye just be freinds
      I hope this helps

    • You’re young, and feelings are complicated. It’s normal for your previous thoughts to change or stay the same, but it’s not something you’ll have to think about for a while. It’ll be fine, Whisper! <333 *hugsssss*

    • That’s nice. You have a crush! I know the feeling. Sometimes someone who annoys you so much you blush at accationally. Don’t take it to seriously either though. Just act naturally and be yourself. Don’t feel pressured to do anything about it.

    • Thanks, everyone, I’m trying to figure out my feelings right now. I have a lot of questions(Should I remain true to the plans I had before? Do I really like him? Is my crush the equivalent of love? Should I start talking to my friends who have had crushes before about it?) but the blog has really helped me. I’ll tell you guys when I figure it out!

      • Usually a crush is temporary, and no it’s not exactly the equivalent of love so I’d say maybe wait a bit and you can try to get to know him better and see where things move on from there 🙂

    • Ahhhh first crush! Feelings change all the time and you don’t have to make any big commitments and plans for the far-off future, especially when it comes to this stuff because it changes all the time! I know the feeling of thinking “I’m never going to have a crush” and then having a crush. Just be yourself! And yes, talking to friends who have had crushes is a good plan.
      *happy hugs!!*

    • You might have a crush on him! First time-crushes are always hard to understand. It makes you feel all jittery and hot. It’s understandable to be worried, because feelings can be confusing!
      I suggest talking to your mom or dad about this, start writing a diary/journal where you can jot down how you feel, (you can decorate the diary/journal with stickers, drawings, and photos!) or maybe just keep on going, and try to figure out your feelings for yourself!
      Don’t worry! Everything will be okay.

    • aww it’s a crush, it’s completely normal! <3 i think you like him, and i admit that i was the same

      i would be like "ew gross" when people mentioned dating and marriage in person, but it was hard to control feelings, let's just say 😛

      try to talk to him more often and if it makes you happy, spend more time with him! don't worry, it's nothing serious and it's COMPLETELY normal i repeat c: haha congrats on ur first crush! :0 <3

  • So recently (or maybe not so recently, I honestly can’t remember) I’ve been feeling super tired, and I tend to lose my temper easily and I get frustrated or pushed over the edge at the smallest provocation. I also have quite a few classes and sometimes I just feel like my homework is never-ending because as soon as I finish one homework, I have to move on to the next, and the next, and by that time I already had another class which means more homework so it’s like I’m juggling all my homework and each class gives me a new ball, and every time I finish a piece of homework I can drop a ball and I can juggle it okay right now, but I’m afraid that all the balls will tumble (aka me not being able to finish homework or losing control) and idk what to do. Also I think I have burnout but I can’t approach my parents about it because I’ve asked them plenty of times about my classes and they’ve made it quite clear I need to continue (plus my mom is even thinking about adding ANOTHER class on top of everything). So I’m not really sure if there’s anything I can do at this point but I really want things to end. I’m tired (figuratively and literally) of this and I would really love some tips if possible!

    • Hi starla. I get this. I snap at a lot of people, and I’m always tired. Sometimes it’s because something small gets on my nerves and it turns into something big. What you need to do is take maybe 1 day in a week take the day for yourself and just calm down, do something that calms you or makes you happy. If you need anymore help, just yell my name and I’ll come 😉

    • Just try your best. Make sure you get anough sleep. Do homework when you get home from school instead of waiting. Don’t let your parents totally control your life. Tell them your sick and tired (literally) of all the classes they have been pushing onto you. You seem to have enough on your plate already.

    • I’m so sorry! You don’t deserve to be pushed so hard.
      Try talking to someone you trust, writing a diary to jot down how you feel, or, if you can, taking a quick run which will help release any anger.
      If this is making you feel horrible, then it’s not okay. Maybe you could try having a calm talk with your mom? Hopefully, this time she might understand.
      Everything will be okay.
      Hang in there!

  • alrighty!
    im back with more annoying problems.
    finally page 555! 111 more and itll be 666 😮
    so problem one.

    My grandmothers services are in another state and im really scared for it.
    ive never been to anything like this.
    im scared. what if i do something wrong and i ruin the whole thing? I really just want my grandmother to rest in peace.

    and second problem.

    does anyone have any tips on sleeping after you watched some scary *fake* videos? (hint hint life of luxury for anyone that likes to get horrified) it really freaks me out and for the past three days its been hard to sleep. i know its all fake but it still makes my skin crawl to know that these things could be in your house when they’re not. I jump at every sound and i need some help to get this off my mind.

    thank you for reading my dumb complaints that probabally wasted your time

    • 🍰🍓 𝙎𝙩𝙧𝙖𝙬𝙗𝙚𝙧𝙧𝙮𝙥𝙖𝙬/𝙗𝙧𝙚𝙚𝙯𝙚 | 𝙄’𝙢 𝙧𝙪𝙣𝙣𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙎𝙚𝙣𝙞𝙤𝙧 𝙒𝙖𝙧𝙧𝙞𝙤𝙧! 🍰🍓 says:

      I have a tip for sleeping better! Sometimes, if I have trouble sleeping due to bad dreams, I’ll turn on the light. I know it sounds silly, but it really helps me. Another thing I’ll do is talk about what I’m scared of with an adult. It actually helps me, because it feels like a small weight has been lifted, and then when you think about it it sounds a bit.. silly. Because you know it’s not real. That is not saying a fear, no matter how silly it sounds is stupid or that you’re feelings are invalid. It just helps you realize that the fear isn’t as bad as you think. This is what’s helped me before, and I know it doesn’t work for everyone *hug*

    • Hey Rosepaw! So I get scared of certain “bad” fictional characters, what I do is I start quietly singing a song because having my brain focus on remembering the lyrics and having it not be completely silent helps me a lot.

    • Oh my goodness I relate so much to the second one. Ugh I am never watching one of those videos again! But some tips are find a funny video or something you can think about when you are getting ready for bed to laugh about. Try to watch more positive things that don’t involve horror/gore/flashing images before bed or mostly anytime. If you see any of those in your recommended just click on the “don’t show me things like this” thingie. Listen to music that makes you calm relaxed or happy (stuff with lyrics is great because you can sing along in your head too!) Music can also help your hearing not get more intense so you don’t hear every little thing. Also those videos are fake but they still scare the life out of me. Maybe think about getting a night light or led lights. Hope this helps!


    • 1. It’s okay! Deep breath. You won’t mess up. You won’t do anything wrong. Okay? You can do it.
      2. Yes, that’s relatable. I do that sometimes. 😛 What I suggest is whenever a scary thought comes on, you quickly think of something happy and bright to scare away the bad thoughts. Or maybe you could read your favorite book, or listen to an audio book before going to bed to distract yourself from the scary videos.
      Lots of luck! These bad thoughts go away fast, and you’ll be sleeping just fine in a few days! Maybe try watching funny fail or funny animal videos instead?

  • I just moved from a big city to another big city. It’s only for a year but in a week I’m going back into school. Any tips on being the new kid?

    • Don’t let people put you down, or put you in a specific category. Don’t pretend to be something you’re not, either. Just be yourself, and it’ll be ok! Good luck!

    • Look, when I was the new kid, I tried not to draw attention to myself. Bad move. You want to make good friends as soon as you can(just make sure they’re nice, I’ve had experiences like that). Try to find one friend who’s been there for a while who can help you out in your new school! This might help 🙂

    • Just be yourself!
      Maybe introduce yourself to some new kids, asking about their favorite books, colors, animals, etc.
      You’ve got this! And everything will be okay! 🙂

  • It’s hard being a girl sometimes, I feel like I’m constantly comparing myself to other girls, and constantly asking myself why I don’t look like them. It’s starting to really make me sad, and people just keep making comments about how I look way younger then I am, even people I don’t really know that well. All the adults I confide in always say one day when I’m older I’ll appreciate looking younger, but that doesn’t help me right now. It’s hard to see people much younger then me who look great and mature and beautiful. I know it’s terrible but my sisters are gorgeous and I feel terrible when I’m with them.

    • Hey, I get it. I’m small for my age and don’t look like I’m my age too. In fact, a third-grader once asked me if I was in first grade! But trust me, you’ll develop eventually. And when you do, you’ll be just as beautiful as the other girls at your school! For now, remind yourself that you are beautiful, inside and out! Every day, look in the mirror and say to yourself, “I’m just like the rest of them!” Because you ARE. You may not think so now, but one day, you’ll believe that you are just as beautiful as them. I can relate because all the popular kids at my school are super pretty too, but I know that in my own eyes, in my family’s eyes, and in my friend’s eyes, because I’m kind, and so are you! Looks don’t matter, it’s your heart that does!
      If you want to talk about this more, you can reach out to me on the tavern or just on the hug page!

    • Just apressiate who you are. Everybody who you think looks better, they probably think at least one thing about them is unlikeable. It’s always greener on the other side.

    • I get it Anon. I feel that way a lot. Just remember that true beauty comes from the heart. *hugs* *hugs*

  • So… sometimes I find that BlogClan is overly… for the lack of a better word, addictive. I feel like there are too many nice people on BlogClan to resist, and I often get distracted by it when I’m supposed to be doing other things. I really want to do other stuff but I’ll think something like “let me check BlogClan for a bit” and then suddenly I really want to comment, and I won’t finish anything.
    Can anyone help? Also, some hugs would be great now thanks!

    • It’s ok to take a small break if you think that’s what you need! Real life always comes first. *hugs*

    • Wow this is relatable- I recommend taking at least 4 hours (yes four) to go outside. Do something fun. Swim. Dance. Soccer. Basketball. Anything that gets your blood pumping. If you want, try checking the Blog with a 3 minute timer. Once it goes up, go back to work and do whatever you need to do. Promise that you get 30 min – an hour at the end of the day to get on the blog and have some fun here too. I get what you mean by addictive, and we understand! Take as much time off the Blog as you need. Maybe try thinking also of why you need to check the Blog. Find a super great reason? Set that 3 minute timer. If you need to comment something, take a little longer, just make sure you realize there’s more to be done than check the Blog. I’m still learning this too 🙂 *Hugsss*

    • Yes, this is very relatable!
      But I know you’re strong enough to say no to the temptation when there’s work to be done! Just concentrate on how good it will feel to be on BlogClan after there’s no more homework to do!
      Other than that, I suggest going outside a lot. (Maybe try a cool sport?) Or set a timer that limits your time on BlogClan, for example an hour, or half an hour. But after the time is off, try to find something else really fun to do instead of BlogClan! I have to work on doing this too… 😛
      You can do this! It might be hard at first, but you’ve got this!
      And lots of good luck! <3

    • I feel you, Frosty! My advice is to set a timer for how long you can be on BlogClan. If you’re doing homework(online or traditional homework), try to finish it all before letting yourself go on BlogClan, or if it’s a large amount of homework, allow yourself small breaks of BlogClan time.
      Otherwise, try interesting yourself with something else! For example, to distract myself from going on BlogClan too much, I busied myself with art. Now I mostly draw, and take occasional breaks to go on BlogClan! Sometimes taking a break or going outside can help a lot.
      I hope this helped! *Hugs*

  • *ALL THE HUGS IN THE WORLD* I agree with the others. You should try talking to someone and maybe ask her if she was joking around or not because parents do things like that. “If you don’t stop I will take away your Ipad!” *You keep doing it* *Parents don’t take Ipad away* So maybe she was just saying it. But if ANYTHING like that happens again please contact an adult immediately! Hope life gets better! <3 ~Skytail

  • WHO ELSE BESIDES ME DOES NOT PLAY ROBLOX AND FORTNITE AND MINECRAFT?????? Since I’m talking about video games (I always am!) you might think that this should go on the gaming discussion page. But no. I want sympathy!
    You see, EVERYONE in my school plays roblox and fortnite and all of that junk. (I go to summer school not because I need to learn, but because I want to make new friends.) And my friends are asking me if I play roblox or if I play minecraft or whatever. And when I say no, they act all surprised and offended. I feel left out and a bit annoyed. Pls send hugs.

    • Hi. Playing certain video games means you have opinions and don’t really try and force yourself to fit in with others. That’s a good thing. Having your own opinion is good, so don’t stress it 😛

    • Frosty (Can I call you that) Ik people are gonna tell you “don’t be rude!” If you say this but…. it helps. You can say: “Please shut up its getting on my nerves. Really I’m not trying to be rude but may shut up?” You do not have to.But anyway I do not play Minecraft nor fortnite (although I do play roblox) So yeah it is annoying. Ik I’m not the most helpful but others will be! *gives 1 million Thousand hundred hugs*

    • Relatable. All the boys like Fortnite, all the girls play Roblox, and my own BFF only watches Aphmau (Minecraft Youtuber). I do play minecraft but I’m not that obsessed! Just try to ignore all the talk about it if you don’t care.

    • I know that annoys me too😟I mean I’d rather be reading*cough* warrior cats *cough* or watching YouTube *cough* warrior cats content *cough*
      Just ignore them and go back to whatever you were doing. If they act like you are an outcast or something (which it doesn’t make you not cool to not do those things) just stay proud of what you do like! Also im trying to do something that won’t get you in trouble. If you don’t mind I would yell my head of at them

    • Yup I personally HATE roblox and fortnite, i think they are violent and stupid??? I play minecraft barely. *hugs*

    • I don’t play it either! Don’t worry, you’re not the only one! <3
      But friends who judge you for what you like and dislike, aren't true friends. Maybe try finding or playing with people who respect your opinion, if it's possible?

      • I don’t play Roblox or Fortnite (fortnite is too voilent, for me)
        and I only play a bit of Minecraft, but since wolves are my favorite animals, I play a game that almost no one in my school and neighborhood plays. Only 1 person plays the game (but the old version of the game, I play the new version.) The game is called WolfQuest. IT’S A GREAT GAME, (in my opinion). If you love wolves and want a game that’s based on the real life of a wild wolf with awesome graphics then WolfQuest is for you. Well, this is Blogclan, not Blog Pack. The thought of playing Wolfquest is making me shiver in excitement for the next day of playing with my wolf in WolfQuest. And don’t worry, Frostkit. You don’t have to be like everyone! Don give up! Keep on looking for people like you. Or you could even show someone the game you play and make them like it!*Sends a hug*
