Unhappy scared of school - January 14th 2009, 04:14 AM

Not really sure what I'm gunna say yet... but anyways...

Primary school was great for me, most of it anyways... up until my last year I had a great group of friends.
But my last year one of my "friends" started being real mean to me and spending a lot of time with my best friend. I don't really know I was only 12... but I saw it kinda like mind control or something... my best friend had clung to me all through primary school then all of a sudden my other "friend" started to spend a lot more time with her and they were both always picking on me and blah blah blah... anyways I made another friend... didn't last long but anyways...

It was such a shame it all happened right when we were about to start high school... My best friend realized how she was making me feel and we were friend again... but because of the falling out we weren't put in the same class.
My (then) best friend made a whole group of other friends and I just kinda stuck to this other one friend from primary school... yea she used to pick on me a lot and one day I decided I'd had enough and that was that.
haven't talked to her since...

So for my first 2 years of high school I didn't really have a good friend to talk to... someone I could trust.
There we're two girls in my class who I used to sit with... but they used to pick on me a lot to... they liked to you know... have they're own little convos and leave me out.

I found it kinda hard to make friends because everyone thought of me as immature... I hate that word so much
I was hanging out with a huge group of people but I didn't really have anyone close... they all found me to "immature" to tell me anything...
I have a positive outlook on life (I like to wear bright colors, sing as loud as I can, Skip instead of walk... that sort of stuff)
Yea... I always tried to help my friends when they're upset but they just don't want my help cause I'm immature

So the year just gone.. I was put in a different class and I made a couple of new friends.
One really good friend I made wasn't to fussed with sticking to rules and would rather talk to the "ferals"
so yea I kinda got in with the wrong crowd for a while.
It was all going great with her... I started getting a lot more attention with her... mostly from boys...
yea that friendship ended when she got jealous... because I was getting waaay more attention from the guys than her... (She could have them for all I cared... I have a bf O.o)

hmm so she's one of those people you probably shouldn't get on the wrong side of...
She used to send me threats by msn and texting... she also used to go out of her way to try and make my life as hard as possible...
wait why am I saying "used to" SHE STILL DOES
just because it's summer holidays I forget... Holidays have been great, I couldn't wait for them to come.

So since she was trying her hardest to make my life "a living hell" she turned a lot of my other friends against me
I am really bad at sticking up for myself D=
people find her more interesting to listen to because of all the stupid stuff she does so when I'm talking to someone she comes and butts in and I'm left out of the convo cause whoever I was talking to would rather listen to her.

So yea... I only had one person In my class who I would consider my friend... even though she ditched me for the other girl... a lot...
I've come home from school crying so many times it's not funny...

so umm... I've hardly talked to any of my other friends (except the one in my class) all holidays and I'm fine with that.
I'm just not looking forward to going back to school because I no she won't have changed.

I did catch up with a couple of other friends last week... but that ended badly... with one of my friends kicking and punching me... (she does that a lot) it really hurts though... she's really strong for a girl (no-offense but you no what I mean...) I have bruises still from her D=
So we had a argument about that over msn... where she brought up a lot of stuff that really upset me... and um turns out when she was sending all these messages to me she had a bunch of her friends over... watching everything we said.

so now not only does she want to bash me... but all her friends from cadets also want to bash me :l

I am so sick of people wanting to bash me D=

oh I suppose I better stop now... but seriously that's not even half of it

I've been thinking about maybe changing schools for this year... but I'm not sure how I'll go... I've always had problems fitting in and since it's my last year of high school I probably shouldn't spend it worrying about who want's to bash me D=

I'm scared of school I hate going... I had a lot of time off last year because of all this D=

so um... I dunno what I want anyone to say back but um... if there's anything you wanna say go ahead

hey Ali,
i know exactly what you're going through i was scared of school as well i got picked on and i'm not good at making friends either.
I always dealt with it by putting music in my ears and walking through it all i'm not saying ignore it because i know it's the hardest thing in the world to do.
but maybe tell a teacher in confidence? i know they don't always seem approachable and some aren't but there's always one teacher that you can talk to.
and maybe join some clubs or something to try and make friends i know that's used a lot i thought it was stupid but it really does work i made some great friends through doing some extra curricular stuff.
But good luck
P.M me if you ever need to talk.

I have to say I know exactly what you are talking about. I am 21 and starting back to college within the next week. My boyfriend and I were talking about this exact same thing the other day. I am scared that people are ya know gonna call me a 'faggot' and things like that, I haven't been to school in so long ya know I sorta forgot about that part.

The way I see it... fuck em'. As long as they are picking on me they are leaving someone else alone.

Yeah - it ain't easy being picked on at school ... keep smiling (easy to say i know) don't let them put you down ...

scarrily 'friends' are the worse - and they always seem to change once you hit high school ...

sorry to hear you're having such a hard time at school. If you want to talk don't hesitate to pm me.

So much for that idea ...
