Feelings are neither good nor bad. It's okay to feel all the feelings, sometimes several at the same time. It is important to notice how these feelings make us behave. It's good to talk about your feelings - that way, and others also know what's going on with you. However, it is not okay to hurt yourself or others with words or actions. It is also not okay if you are sad, angry, or indifferent for a long time or if someone treats you badly - bullies humiliate you or do something against your will. Then it is very important to find someone to talk to about what is happening to you and to ask for help.

Not sure what I'm feeling

  • Sometimes it can be really hard to understand what we're feeling - and that's okay too.

  • Child Helpline consultants always listen to you - no concern is too small for us!

  • Find someone you can talk to about what's going on with you or ask for help.

  • It is important that you are not alone with your worries and feelings.

  • Sometimes different feelings arise inside us together - we can simultaneously feel anger, sadness, and fear.

I am sad..
  • We are all sad sometimes. It doesn't always even need a reason - sometimes sadness just creeps up, and you don't know why.

  • You can feel sad if you have a problem, you had a fight with someone, or you lost something nice.

  • It's possible that sometimes you don't even understand why you're sad.

  • When you are sad, your body can feel heavy, tired, and sick.

  • It's important to know: it's totally okay to talk about sadness.

  • If you are often sad, feel free to talk to your parents, a friend or call the child helpline 116 111.

  • Asking for help is normal. We all need help sometimes!

  • You are not alone. There is always someone who can help you!

  • The sad feeling doesn't stay with you forever - even if it may sometimes seem that way. Sadness always passes.

I am angry..
  • Anger is a normal feeling like any other. There's certainly no need to feel guilty if you're sometimes angry.

  • Being angry at your friend or family member doesn't mean you don't care. Anger is a fleeting emotion, but love and friendship endure.

  • Anger is one of the strongest emotions, but it usually passes quickly.

  • You may feel anger when something bad happens, or someone acts unfairly.

  • Sometimes you can also feel anger towards yourself - when something fails or doesn't go the way you expected.

  • Anger can make you behave differently - perhaps you scream, cry, or want to run away.

  • Hurting someone with words or actions when angry is not okay.

  • When angry, it is important to learn to deal with this feeling - the sooner we learn it, the easier it will be in the future.

  • If you feel anger building up, you can take a break and move away from the situation that is upsetting you. Sometimes taking deep breaths, hugging yourself, or shaking off your feelings by jumping or waving your arms also helps.

  • It's good if you find a supportive and safe loved one to whom you can talk about what happened to you when you calm down.

I am scared..
  • All people are afraid of something - be it pain, darkness, spiders, performing in front of others, or some new situation.

  • Fear of new and unknown things is okay.

  • Sometimes you realize that there is no real reason to feel fear, but it is difficult to overcome the feeling - talk about it with an adult or a good friend.

  • You may feel scared when someone mistreats you - hurts you, says bad things, bullies you, or forces you to do something you don't want to do.

  • Maybe you are scared because your parents fight or hurt each other.

  • Remember: no one can treat you badly! If you feel unsafe or scared, you need help!

  • It is never your fault that someone treats you badly. Every child needs to feel safe and loved.

  • The most important thing is to tell someone about your concerns, even if it's hard to do.

  • Be brave and ask for help!

  • Help is always available! You can turn to Child Helpline at any time and with any concern!

I am happy..
  • We all feel joy, but some of us are more cheerful by nature, others more serious - everyone is special and unique just the way they are.

  • We also express our joy differently - if one wants to share it with everyone, the other can also feel joy only within themselves.

  • There can be a specific reason for being happy (for example, a desired birthday present), but sometimes you can also feel happy just like that.

  • Different things can make you happy: a deep sleep, a hug, a pet, a good grade, sunny weather, grandma's apple pie, etc.

  • Both big and small things make us happy. The more we can be happy about the little things, the happier our whole life will be.

  • The feeling of joy can be great - so that you actually want to shout with happiness, but also just a nice feeling inside that everything is fine and it feels good.

  • Even beautiful memories can make us happy.

  • Notice the joy you feel. Notice what the things that bring you joy are.

  • Share your joy with others - that way, you can multiply it!

I am surprised..
  • You can be surprised in many ways - both good and bad.

  • You feel surprised at some unexpected event, such as an unexpected meeting, gift, or news.

  • Surprised, your body may also behave differently - you may blush, make big eyes or exclaim.

  • Following the surprise, you may also feel fear, joy, or confusion. 

  • If you find it difficult to understand what is happening to you, talk to someone you trust.

  • The child Helpline is always there and waiting for your call or message.
