It is true, you have a lot going on--changes, not feeling supported, etc. This can be different. You can meet others and get involved in the activities that you like. Think about other ways you could make this happen--can you get involved with your religion (for example, a church), babysitting, school activities--sports, clubs, plays, etc.
You could even convince one of the teachers to help you to write a play--and then go from there....The more you meet others--like you already know--then your situation will change and you can hang out and develop some good friendships. However, it does take time, so be patient--it will happen.
We are concerned that you had some suicidal thoughts last year. We do NOT want you to feel that way again--if you do, then its important that you reach out for help. Talk to your parents, or call us. Our hotline is available 24/7 and our counselors talk about a wide variety of topics. The idea here is, reach out for help--you are not alone anymore--we are here!
Try to not let those comments from those mean girls and guys get you down--you know they only say those mean things to others as a way to feel good themselves, because they have low self esteem. Try and think of it this way: if they continue in their pattern of behavior, soon they will not have many friends themselves.
It may help to focus on each day--how you can rise above their comments. That is what you have control over. You and your own behavior. Keep talking about your feelings--it will help you. Remember to get involved with some activities--whether it is at school or not--get involved, it can help!
Take care, stay positive, and keep in touch with us,
