Re: RUMOURS!!! - November 3rd 2009, 12:38 AM

firstly, well done on staying self harm free and not letting these people change that!. rumours can be really difficult to deal with. trust me, i've had my fair share of horrible rumours spread about me and i know how much it can get you down. it's easier said than done.. but really, just ignore these people. if they have nothing better to do than make up stupid rumours about you then that just shows what kind of people they are. don't let it get you down..

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

Re: RUMOURS!!! - November 5th 2009, 07:13 PM

Hey Secret.
I know it really isn't nice with any rumors going round, and that it is a hard thing to deal with, and that situations like these do have a tendency to spiral out of control! It's not fair you're going dealing with this right now, but really there isn't a whole lot you can do I'm afraid!

Mainly, just try your best to ignore it. Things like this may seem everywhere for a few days, but rumors do die down after a while, I promise. If things get worse, or you feel like something is getting out of hand, it's important there's someone you can talk to. Telling a teacher, or adult you trust, or just someone that can keep an eye out for you really does make a problem lighter. Don't deal with this entirely on your own; having people around you can look to for support makes a whole lot of difference!

I'm proud of you for managing to stay SH free! It takes a special person to deal with rumors like that, and stay strong, and you should remember that! You've had to deal with things your peers won't even think about; and you are a better person. Don't let them drag you down! Stay calm, and use any coping methods that have worked for you in the past if you annoyed or angry. Strong emotions like hits are completely normal, but I know they are a little worrying. Don't let them control you 'kay?

Keep us updated if you need anything else. My inbox is always open, and I'm here to listen Best of luck.
