Is this really happening - February 14th 2010, 03:01 AM

Im talking to somebody about everything that im going through tmrw im also joining a church tmrw. I feel like im starting to feel God again. It actually sounds like my life is coming togehter again.

But then in the back of my mind theres still that doubt. How can something good actually be happening to me? Theres got to be some kind of stretch. I mean theres still some pretty intense stuff going on in my life right now but for some reason it feels ok right now. Its weird.

Now for the bad things going on.

My best friend told me last night that she likes a chick and that she dosent know what to do. I dont know what to do to help her. I told her that im still here and I'll always be that what she told me isnt going to change our friendship. What else can I do?

I smoked weed. Im so disapointed in myself for doing so. I told one of my friends and they freaked. She said shes disapointed and shes basically avoided me for 2 days. I've said im sorry and that im never doing it again. But I guess its just not enough. I dont know how to make it up to her. I hate letting her down it kills me inside.

Another one of my friends is mad at me because im a christian. She thinks its all fake that were all fake and she expects me to just stop being one and im not going to. So shes mad and shes watching me now expecting me to be perfect.

Im afraid to open up. The adult that im talking to knows some of what im going through. We've only talked through text messages so talking in person is a huge step for me. But im so scared. She said shes basically heard everything and nothing can suprise her, that she isnt going to judge me and I can trust her. But its just so hard. I've always had trust issues and just making myself vunerable and putting myself out there where I could be hurt so easily is just so hard.

Now that I've written all this down im feeling a tad down again. Help?

Hey Kay,

Well it's good that things are starting to get a little better. Try to be accepting that even though you are going through a lot, it's ok to feel happy sometimes. I think you just need to be there for your friend and let her know you are still accepting of her. She may be going through a lot trying to figure out who she is so just be her friend and help her through it.About your second friend, just tell her how you feel. Tell her you feel terrible you let her down and you wish you never did that and you won't do it again. I mean no one is perfect so we just have to learn from out mistakes. And for your third friend, I don't think she is a great friend if she's mad at you for taking up a different religion than what she believes in. Friends should be accepting of you know matter what religion, race, or sexuality you are.

I know how hard it can be to open up but it's totally worth it. Let yourself trust this woman because if she has helped you in the past through texting, talking on the phone shouldn't be any different. Sometimes we can't do everything ourselves and it's ok to ask for someone to lean on. You don't have to open up to everyone. Maybe just one of your accepting close friends, a family member you are close to, or the adult you are talking to now.

Hang in there,


Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.
