overly friendly? - September 11th 2009, 11:18 PM

since i just started the school year as a ninth grader at the top of my school, i decided it would be nice to help out the seventh graders coming in, and help the eighth graders adjust accordingly to their classes and scheduale. i have been going up to many kids and helping them out, and they really appreciate it. i made a lot of new friends in the seventh and eighth grade.
but some ninth graders just think i'm a creep now.
am i overly friendly? or what?

When you can't find your way home,
and when life gets too hard to face on your own.
I will stand as a light through the darkness unknown,
I will walk with you, so you're never alone.

Hey Kayla,

If your fellow ninth graders think you're a creep for helping people out, then that's just silly. It could be that they don't have the initiative or aren't thinking about other people in the school, and I wouldn't say that's a fantastic thing at all.

When I first went into high school there was a grade 12 who really did her best to help me out and help me to feel comfortable and welcome in the school. That really meant a lot to me and I think it's so important for older kids to help teach the younger ones. You really are making a good impression. And who knows? They may take up that spot once you're gone from the school and decide to help newcomers as well in the future.

Try not to worry about what other students think. You are helping a lot of people out, and they are the ones that appreciate it. That is all that matters.

Take care and keep up the helping!

Hey Kayla!

You should just ignore the people who are calling you a "creep". You're being a nice person, and I had a couple older brothers in high school when I started, and them being there helped me more then they know. Having someone to show you the ropes and help get you settled is great, you don't feel so intimidated, or alone. This is a great thing you're doing, just forget those people

Keep it up Kayla!
Take care,

I wouldn't call you a creep at all. I'd say you're a really genuinely nice person. I wish there were more people like you.

The people in your year are just too immature to see that what you're doing is great. There's nothing wrong with helping people out in the years below you and befriending them in the process. You go girl!
