Stay calm.

  • Stay calm.
  • You can’t control how other people act, but you can control how you react. It’s okay to feel angry or upset, but don’t let it show. Don’t let others see that they are getting to you!

Don’t go along with the crowd.

You don’t want to be a bully or a bystander. You don’t want to be the victim of bullying either.

You can be friendly and polite without joining in with the crowd. You can say “No thanks” when someone asks you to do something that makes you uncomfortable. And mean it! The best way not to feel left out is by staying true to yourself and sticking up for what matters most: your own happiness and well-being.

Remember that you are not the only one who feels left out.

This is a big one. It may feel like you’re the only one in your friend group who feels this way, but trust me when I say that you are not alone. There are other people out there who have felt left out and excluded from their groups at some point in their lives. And they’ve had to face it just as much as you do now. If someone makes fun of you for being different or not fitting in, don’t take it personally–it’s probably because they were once made fun of themselves and didn’t know how else to react than by making fun of others too!

If someone tries to make you feel left out and isolated from your friends, try talking with them instead of getting angry or upset over what happened (which will only lead further into isolation). Find someone who understands where both sides are coming from (that would be me), who has been down this road before herself!

Remember that it’s not your fault.

Remember that it’s not your fault.

You can’t control what other people do, and you can’t control how they feel. If you want to be included in conversations and activities that interest you, then stand up for yourself. If someone makes a snide comment about how much fun they had without your presence, tell them that it’s rude of them to exclude others from their conversations so frequently. You don’t need anyone else’s approval or validation–you are enough on your own!

Talk about it with people who will understand and support you.

If someone is making you feel left out, don’t keep it to yourself. Talk about it with people who will understand and support you.

  • Talk to a friend or family member. Your friends are a great place to start because they can help put things into perspective for you. They might also have some ideas of what to do next if the situation gets worse–or better!
  • Talk to an adult at school or work (if this is where the person making you feel left out is). If there’s an adult at school or work who seems trustworthy and would be willing to listen (like a teacher or counselor), then go ahead and tell them what happened! They’ll probably be able to give advice on how best handle the situation going forward–and maybe even put in some calls on your behalf so that no one else gets hurt by this person again either! It might feel scary at first but I promise everything will be okay once we get through this together 🙂

You are not alone, and you can get through this

  • You are not alone.
  • You can get through this.
  • It will get better, and there are people who understand and support you.


Ultimately, it’s important to remember that you are not alone and can get through this. You might feel like no one understands what you’re going through, but there are people out there who will listen and support you.
