When You Have Teachers Doing It To You, Its A Problem.

In school I'm extremely quiet, and I don;t really fit in with the kids in my classes. I hate it but what am I actually going to say with these kids? Nothing at all. The price of me being so quiet and reserved caused me to have like....4 or 5 cuts from my history class, which is really ****** up. But All that is fixed but what keeps it from happeneing again?.

Do you ever look around and see someone you would like to talk to or wish they would talk to you? There are other kids thinking the same thing...and some of them are looking at you hoping you will talk with them.<br />

I felt similar when I was in high-school. I was uncomfortable and didn't feel like I fit in. I eventually found my way with some effort and taking a chance or two. I won't tell you it will be easy. High-school can be difficult. The measure of a person is how we handle the difficulties we encounter. Anyone can thrive when the path before them is smooth and the road signs are clear.<br />

You will be a stronger woman for the challenges in front of you if you face those challenges and follow what you believe in. I believe each of us has gifts and strengths that we may not even know we have. When I was your age I had no idea what I would eventually accomplish...but I kept going forward. <br />

I'm not done yet.<br />

Thats so true. Both of you guys are right. Thanks guys.

You are probably right - no one would miss you.<br />

Fortunately for you, there are options. Try being more outgoing. I was also like you as a kid, but I learned that interpersonal communication is key. I have more friends now than I need b/c I ask questions about them - how is so-and-so going? how is your family? etc etc. It makes them feel wanted and that you actually give a ****.<br />

Try it, you might be surprised :)
