    When My Grandma Died

    I didn't cry. I couldn't. Then I saw my cousin crying in the bathroom. She was crying so much and I didn't know what to do. I just froze. That was the worst time. I don't think I would do that now. At least, I like to think that I wouldn't. I felt like such an...

    It's All One Sided

    I hate it when my friend feels sad and I know it, yet I can't do anything about it. I tried saying things like 'No worries I'm still here, you got me.' But it seems like he still feels sad. (It's all through IM) A girl he likes made him sad, and another moment she can make him...

    I Don't Know Whats Wrong With Me...

    Sometimes I just feel so awkward. I don't know what to say or do. I see one of my friends and they look so sad and depressed and sometimes they even look like they're about to cry and I just freeze up and I feel weird. I absolutely hate it when my friends are hurting and all I...

    I Wish I Did...

    ...but alas, all I can usually do is make some lame joke, and most of the time I overshoot the mark and end up looking stupid and making the other person feel like I"m mocking them or making fun of them. I never try to do that, I genuinely try to make someone feel better, but I...

    I Wish I Could Be Better At It. I Still Care!

    There are some people who know exactly what to say and what to do to make someone feel better. I can't seem to find the right way to cheer someone up. So sometimes, I just leave things unsaid. Or I appear silly and superficially sympathetic. I worry that I appear...

    I'm Basically Useless

    I don't even really try anymore. I think it's partially because I'm not willing to say meaningless optimistic things when a situation is bad. Not to say that people who can cheer others up only do so by saying meaningless things. Also I hate when guys want to get advice from me...

    Not Really Sure

    I don't know how to cheer someone up, really. I mean I try with my friends but I'm not sure if that really works. Usually, I either try to get them to talk about it or try to be funny. Sometimes they work and sometimes it doesn't, depending on who I'm with..If I'm with my friend...
