Question Please help - February 25th 2009, 04:54 PM

Bare with me this is my first time.

I kissed a girl in the summer and that was that, a few weeks ago i told my friend and they told other people and they told the girl that i kissed. She is now telling the school that i made up rumors when it did happen, now other people are calling me a liar and her dad is calling the school. I believe this is because i am not the most desrible and it would be considerd "social sucide" now people are calling me a liar and i will be spoken to by a teacher.

This seems small compared to other posts but any help would be greatfully recived

Aww hun I'm so sorry this is happening to you =[

The only thing I can recommend is waiting out until your father can make the change. As horrible as it sounds, try to fall gracefully with it. The harder you hit the ground the harder it will be to get back up.

A lot of this has to do and may do with the maturity factor of your school. Middle school seems to be a higher place of bullying than high school. The only thing you can do is to let your father handle it or see your school counselor about it. I recommend the counselor heavily though, but if you don't want it exploited, then don't give too many details.

I really hope for the best for you =[ this is horrible what you're going through.
and if you need anyone to talk to... I'm here =]

So where did everyone go?
And you don't even know
So don't pretend that you do

It's just a set up
For all the failures
Always playing after something cool

Hey Stag,

First of all, welcome to Teen Help. :] As for your advice, I think waiting it out would be best. Unfortunately, you can't change people's minds once they're bent on believing everything they hear. It's sad, but true sometimes. Rememeber, you don't need to prove yourself to anyone. As long as you know the truth, let everyone else believe what they like. They're only assuming anyway, and following the pack. If someone asks you, just tell them the truth. If they call you a liar for it, then let it go. I know it's hard to do sometimes, but people just want to get a reaction from you. They're no better than anyone else for believing rumors and such. They weren't there, so how do they know? Try and keep your cool and let things work themselves out. A lot of time, these things do work themselves out. I also agree with Brooke. If you ever need to talk about anything, come and find me :] You're not alone.

~Stay strong and have faith.

Baby stand tall. You can have it all.

Don't you worry your pretty little mind, people throw rocks at things that shine..

Hey Stag. I'm sorry these jerks are giving you such a hard time. And I truly know how difficult it is to do this, but I think the best thing to do would be to just try to ignore what they have to say. Letting it break you down and push you to the ground will only make it ten times easier to fall back down when something like this happens again. I know it's one of the toughest things to do, but going to school with your head held high and trying your hardest to feel confident is the best thing that I think you can do. People will always be ass holes to us sometimes, but we have to learn to turn around not lot us bother us to a point where it kills us inside. If you at least try not to let it hurt you, I think the jerks will get bored and back off, if they get no reaction or don't hurt your feelings. Let them say what they want about you, the only thing that matters is that you know you're NOT a liar, and that you are a good person. Screw the rest.

Hang in there, okay? x

First: Welcome to TeenHelp!
Second: I'm sorry about what's happening. If I were you, and the person I told was a close friend, then I would go to them and say, "Hey, why'd you go off telling so many people what I told you? That's not something that's supposed to be spread and I thought you knew better." Or something along those lines. To the teacher, I would tell the truth. That you aren't a liar and that you know the girl doesn't want that spread and that it wasn't supposed to be. I would go up to the girl and apologize for what's happening and tell her that you really didn't want anything like what happened to happen.
Good luck, dear.
Let me know if you ever need to talk or anything. =)

This is how it ends
We believe every lie & say we'll still be friends
How long will it last
Before we scratch all the scripts & rework the casts
