Guilty - April 20th 2014, 08:38 AM

okay so on Thursday right when school was ending, we were dismissed for math class (which is my last block) and so we were just lining up for the teacher to let us out and I was in the end of the line which was near my teachers desk. And on that desk was a Galileo Thermometer. I think somebody pushed me?? And my backpack knocked over the thermometer and it shattered on the floor.... I have no idea if it WAS me or not but the teacher looked as if he was to the point going to cry... we picked up the debris and all he said was "leave it. Everyone just go." And we left and people kept pointing fingers at me like "you broke it didnt you?" And so I felt even more guilty. I felt terrible. I still have that guilty pain right now. Idk I mean even if it was me it was an accident. Everyone said sorry cause we had no idea who did it but they kept blaming ME. Because I was around that area. I just. I still feel so bad... any suggestions or something? thanks in advance...

Wow that seems like a tough situation and I can understand why you feel upset. However don't take the blame for something that you didn't do or something that is considered an accident just because you feel guilty. If you didn't do it, then you shouldn't feel the hurt. I do suggest that you make your teacher a coffee mug or make him something to apologize for what happened.

As far as your classmates, if they bring it up change the subject to something unrelated and eventually they will get the hint and leave you alone about it.

Hey there!

As mentioned above, try not to take the blame for something that you didn't do even though this is easier said than done. When school ends, everyone as you know is in a rush to get out of the building and head home so you were most likely pushed. You didn't do it purposely and I'm sure that you wouldn't go out of the way to deliberately knock the thermometer over.

The people that were blaming you were just probably trying to protect themselves and it's rather immature of them to point and embarrass you like they did. I think you should write a note or speak to your teacher during lunch or after class to explain that you were most likely pushed and you're not entirely sure if it was you. Let him know how you're feeling as he can provide a good listening ear. If this continues to affect you in the way that is, please consider talking to someone such as a guidance counselor.
