Trust your instincts (12 year old girl)
I had a friend who i thought was the best friend ever! She was pretty and nice and smart and funny - everything a friend should be. But i did not realise that she wasn't actually safe to be around.
She took me to a party once and when i got there i saw that she hung out with some really bad people. So i wanted to leave and i did, but as i was walking half way down the street back to her house, she came after me and asked me to go back to the party.
I should have known it was a bad idea but i didn't and by the end of the night i met a boy who did something really terrible to me. I ran back to my friend's house but i never felt the same again, until i spoke to Kids Helpline. Kids Helpline gave me someone to talk to and helped me get back to normal.
This story is not to scare anyone, just to tell people that when they have a bad feeling about people or a place, trust your instincts and get away from it or them. I also want to say that Kids Helpline can help you overcome any problem - including a massive issue like mine. GOOD LUCK GUYS!
