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

  • Depressing sum-up of real life me

    I’m just a stupid kid

    I barely have any friends

    I make sarcastic jokes

    Help me

    • No your not, and please don’t ever say that about yourself because you are an amazing, beautiful soul, and I don’t want you to ruin your self confidence, snow! I care about you and I -sorry for the strong word- hate to see people talk bad about themselves. I’m so sorry that your going through this, but sarcasm is just your style of humor. I barely have any friends either, but in the future, you will make more. And you are not at all stupid, and yes, a lot of us are kids, but we’re not stupid, we just take a bit more time to process and learn things. You are amazing, snow 💛💛

    • You are smart, beautiful, kind, loving, brave- and everything in between.
      How about you try telling riddles instead of jokes? Riddles are super fun and it’s not sarcastic either. Sometimes, and little sarcasm is a good thing, but too much isn’t.
      We’re here for you, and we always will be. You’re not alone, and everything will be okay.
      *Hugs*
      *Hugs*
      *Hugs*

    • You are not stupid :< YOU IS SMART YES YOU IS (excuse my grammar 😛 ) Who said many friends was good? A few is all you need <3 Plus who isn't your friend, is missing out. And sarcastic jokes? Again, who said that was bad? Being sarcastic is good! Plus I also make like sarcastic jokes and well jokes when I'm nervous hehehe POINT IS YOU ARE AN AMAZING SNOWPAW AND DON’T FORGET IT :<

    • No. You are not stupid.
      All of us are your friends here.
      I make sarcastic jokes, too. And btw it doesn’t matter what kinds of jokes you make. What matters is that you are actually a smart funny kind person we all need in our lives. And we are all young at some point. Nobody comes into the world knowing everything.
      We love you Snowpaw! <3
      Hugs hugs hugs hugs hugs

      • Thanks Runningdapple.I love you guys too.Im not insecure about my sense of humor anymore,some of my clasmates(even the popular kids)think it’s funny.

    • You’re not stupid! You’re smart enough to ask for help when you’re struggling! (Unlike me) As for the friends, I don’t have a lot of friends too! Also, just like you, I make a sarcastic jokes! (We have a lot in common! Maybe we can be friends?) And by the way, I love your name! *Hugs*

    • Aww, it’s ok! My parents are not going well together at the moment, but I always find a way to make it through the day!
      Good Luck and Don’t Give Up!!!
      -Lily 💐

  • Hey everyone. So, I’ve been gone for a while and that’s because I’ve had a LOT of life stuff going on. There’s really too much to put down here so I’m going to tell you guys the big one.
    I recently un-friended a friend of mine who was mean to me. They didn’t encourage or support what I loved to do and made fun of my dreams. They’ve been ignoring me based on little things I say like, “That one eye is a little messy. Add a bit of eyeshine!” while drawing. Normally this would not be a huge problem except for the fact that they had decided they were a lesbian. When I un-friended them, a bunch of people-including my former friend-started spreading a rumor that I was homophobic. I know I’m not, but the whole school believes I am, even my friends. They are nice about it and try not to bring it up, but I still keep telling them, “Hey! That’s not true about me!” And the one person who would, believe me, is at another school! This was only destined to happen after I told all the Warriors fans at my school that I don’t like RavenxBarley, but still. Help!

    • I’m so sorry.I can relate to the being judged part cuz my sister is a wayyyy too good artist(she’s 11 like me but she draws better than most grown-ups)and she constantly points out all the flaws in my art.Dont worry,I believe u.Id back u up if I was at ur school.*hugs*.Those people r going to see how wrong they are sometime soon.

    • I’m sorry that you have to put up with this, whisper. You are so amazing, and I understand that you are not homophobic because you only unfriended that person because they were mean. I hope that things get better for you 💛

    • You are a brilliant, wonderful person and you don’t deserve to be treated that way. If your friend was making you feel bad, you did the right thing unfriending them. I’d suggest talking to your parents about this!
      Hang in there! Everything will be okay.
      *Hugs*
      *Hugs*
      *Hugs*

      P.S I’m not a huge fan of RavenxBarley either :/

    • It’s good that you un-friended them because they do not deserve you :< And you know you're not homophobic, so it doesn't matter. If someone says you are, just calmly say, "Nope. I'm not." and just walk away or just ignore them. BUT REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE AN AMAZING WHISPERPAW DON'T FORGET IT

    • You made the right choice to un-friend your former friend. They don’t deserve you to be honest. I seriously don’t get why they would want to spread a rumor (that is not true) about you! I mean, you’re amazing, fabulous, wonderful, unlike them, and etc, etc! I hope people realize that the rumor is fake! ( I also hope that your former friend learns not to disrespect someone like you after I break in to their house) *hugs*

    • *Hugs!* *HUGS!* (Skytail explodes whisperpaw with hugs)
      “friends” can be mean. SO, in my opinion, you did the right thing.
      And if people are saying “your so homophobic.” just tell them what happened.
      I hope you feel better!

    • I mean, honestly? Just show them this page and say, “proof.” This page is proof that we don’t care about rumours or lies, or even the truth! We just care about making people feel safe and secure in their daily life. Just remember to stay positive and always believe, no matter how crazy your beliefs are (to others and yourself) 🙂

  • Hi. So, i have this friend. More than friend? Idk, because they havent really been acting like it lately. Let’s call them Newtbreeze. In recent months, Newtbreeze has lied to me, hidden the truth from me, and put me down. Once, he even made fun of my trauma.

    I’ve tried to tell him please stop multiple times multiple ways. I wrote him a long letter. I didnt try to hide that i was stressed. But Newtbreeze doesnt seem to listen to a word that comes out my mouth. I even asked bluntly if he cared about my feelings or not and he said yes but he’s yet to show it.

    I’m stressed, on the verge of a mental breakdown, and my heart is shattered. I have been this way for almost three months.

    My other friends are like ” well if he’s doing all this stuff to u and not apologizing maybe you shouldnt like him *glares at Newtbreeze*” but i cant help it. i really, really love Newtbreeze with all i am. I dont want to hurt him the way he’s hurt me. I just want to fix this.

    Ive journaled, talked to my dogtor 🐶, sang sad songs, prayed, written poems, cried, and even tried to telepathically communicate with Newtbreeze.

    I’m not sure what to do anymore. Do you have any advice?

    • Newtbreeze doesnt sound like a friend if he did that to you!! I think you deserve better friend than Newtbreeze.
      *Hug Hug HUUUGGGG*

    • So, some of my friend’s other friends (her brother’s friends) were not being that nice to her, and me and the rest of our main friend group just tried comforting her and honestly I think it only helped a little bit. She did all the things you did, and that didn’t help either.

      Then she found this website,, au.reachout.com, from what she’s told me, there’s two, one’s Dealing with a toxic friendship, and the other’s How to tell your friend they’ve hurt you.

      These really helped her out, and in her case she got to stay friends with her brother’s friends. I hope this helps you. *hugs*

      • Omg tysm like two years ago a new girl came to my school and I found I could relate to her in a lot of ways and we became besties and my old best friend became jealous and just completely ignored me, and when she did talk it would be to make barbed comments. If they’re troubling you that much talk to your parents, or your teacher or whoever you trust and they’ll help you. I know that my friends and family were there to help me.

    • *Hugs* I’m so sorry Smokeflower. First of all, you are such an amazing, kind, caring person, and you do not deserve to be treated like that. Second of all, you have done all you can to express your feelings to Newtbreeze. I know how it feels to love someone, and they seem not to care about you. Newtbreeze could be going through a tough time. I would suggest meeting with him privately, and having a talk with him about how you feel. I hope things get better soon, and I am always here for you if you want to talk. *Hugs* *Hugs* *Hugs* *Hugs* *Hugs* *Hugs* *Hugs* *Hugs* *Hugs* *Hugs* *Hugs*

    • Oh my smoky… you don’t deserve this. I don’t think that you should be friends with this person anymore because that is not how a friend should act. I’m so sorry that you have to deal with this 💛

    • Newtbreeze sounds like an awful person! If he makes you feel bad and those things like that to you, he doesn’t deserve you!
      Don’t worry, Smokeflower! Everything will be okay 🙂
      *Hugs*
      *Hugs*
      *Hugs*

    • IM SO SORRY! I know what this is like, most people know about the famous crush insident with my crush, let’s call him Foxpaw, because he’s a no good lying fox! Sorry, had to get that out of the way. I don’t know much about boys other than the feeling when one you like talks to you. What I can say is, what do you love about Newtbreeze? Do you love him for what he expresses most of the time, or what he expresses some of the time. I love(like him? Hate him? Idk what I feel for him at this point) Foxpaw because he’s funny, yet sweet. Clueless, yet smart. Cute, yet not afraid to show the ugly sides of himself. think about that before talking it out with him. If you find that you only like some of his parts, then try to get to know him all over again! I hope this helped!

      • Looking back this doesn’t make much sense. If I were to rephrase this, I would ask you if you love Newtbreeze for the qualities he shows the majority of the time, or for what he only shows some of the time. My complicated feelings for Foxpaw are fueled by the parts of his personality he shows to me and others most of the time, the funny, kind, and sweet parts that makes him have so many close friends and that made me question my sanity in the first place.

    • Ugh I know exactly how that feels. To reeeeaaally like someone but not get there love back. Im in a similar situation right now, in fact I’ve done pretty much all of that stuff you listed at the end (thank goodness i’m not the only person who tries to telepathically connect to my crush XD). I know that crushes seem like they come out of nowhere for no apparent reason and you can’t make them go away!! trust me when I say you come to peace with it. Ive have my current crush for over a year and now I just sort try to ignore it. I think the best thing you can do to make your feelings go away is to just not hang out with Newtbreeze. (He doesn’t sound like a nice person) the less you do the less you’ll notice your feelings. ill be praying for u 🙂

    • IT SOUNDS LIKE THIS N E W T B R E E Z E DOESN’T DESERVE THE MARVELOUS, THE AMAZING, THE BRILLIANT, THE *breathes* BRAVE, THE STRONG, THE BEAUTIFUL SMOKEFLOWER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But i know what it’s like to really really really like someone and not being able to express so. And don’t let him bother you like that. There’s always gonna be a thorn on a rose. But maybe you could tell him how you feel? Like, how he is hurting you. Everything he’s caused- BUT LIKE I SAID ABOVE, YOU ARE.. THE MARVELOUS, THE AMAZING, THE BRILLIANT, THE *breathes* BRAVE, THE STRONG, THE BEAUTIFUL SMOKEFLOWER!! and don’t you forget it

    • I understand that you truly love him, but I think you need to cut the relationship. He’s toxic. He’ll just do that more and more until you will get a mental breakdown and maybe he will still continue to lie to you. I’m not trying to hurt you but I think that he was lying when he said that he cared about you. I suggest you this. Ask him if he is mad at you for anything. If he says no, give him the cold shoulder and tell him you don’t want to be his friend anymore. If he just shrugs and seems to have a good time without you and he doesn’t even try to talk to you to solve the problem, I believe that you should cut the relationship. I’m sorry if I’m acting a little cold to you, saying you shouldn’t be his friend anymore. Anyway, *Hugs Hugs Hugs*.

    • They don’t seem like a good friend
      I’m sorry :c
      I think you should distance yourself from them

  • I’m having a lot of problems.My attitude gets me in trouble with my parents(mainly sarcasm),and I don’t have that many friends so I feel kinda lonely.In addition,my sister recently accused me of stealing her money,almost broke my arm,and nearly disowned me.I don’t know what to do and I’m falling into deppresion.In addition,my school enemy is in two of my classes and I have to do group projects with him.I also started to zone out and get bored in class and I don’t get enough sleep and my dark humor pops up in the most random times and I feel like my friends stopped taking me seriously.please give me advice.😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥

    • Cheetahheart!, (Warrior name) Cheetah heart, (Ancients) Cheetah that runs through valley, (Tribe of rushing water) Cheetah (Sisters) Cheers (Kittypet) Claw (rogue/loner) tell me if i missed any names! says:

      About your school enemy, usually, when you don’t like someone, think about why. Try to become friends with them, and get together. Maybe there is a good reason you hate each other, maybe not. But it should be forgiven.

      About your parents, try to be kinder. Pray to the Lord, for only he can help you.

      About your sister, if she is being rude to you, be kind to her back. When she accuses you of stealing her money, give her extra. When she steals your stuff, give her more.

      Hope this helps. stay strong, and love those around you, even if they don’t back!

        Hey Cheetahheart!
        Just a reminder that BlogClanners really aren’t advised to give religious advice- not everybody practices a religion, so saying something religion-y isn’t necessarily always going to be helpful. Please avoid it in the future, unless you know for certain that the BlogClanner you’re comforting practices the same faith you do.

          thank you, i will remember that in the future. (:

      • Just want to say, if someone is known for bullying you, or heck, nearly breaking your arm, your first course of action should not be to be nice to them.

        An adult needs to be told after what their sister did. Giving the sister what she wants will only cause Snow to be in more danger, I think.

        Yes, if their sister is yelling at them Snow definitely should not react the same way, they should keep cool and gently try to explain, but giving her money and items only puts Snow in a position to be bullied and hurt further.

        • My sis has anger issues so I don’t think that was intentional,but it still hurt,physically and mentally,even tho she apologized afterward,that she distrusts me that much.Btw,my pronouns are she/her,so u don’t have to call me the, all the time.Ty for the advice Blue.

          • Even if it wasn’t intentional, it’s still not a very safe position to be in. Maybe she just needs some help(therapy or something) so she can figure out a better way to work through her emotions.

            Thank you for letting me know! I didn’t want to use the wrong pronouns and end up hurting your feelings. 🙂

      • Ty for the advice,but it’s impossible to become friends with my enemy.there is a good reason for it,but it’s hard to understand
