Angie
I'm 14 and confused about life, Please help me?
I'm 14, this year was the worst year of my life. I had two fake *** friends who I could never be myself around and I always felt awkward around. They stabbed me in the back and got the whole school against me, nobody likes me. I was called names and harrased everyday when I was in school. My mom is an awful alcoholic and we aren't exactly rich. I see a physciatrist about every two weeks but I don't think she's really helping. I feel lost, I am alone in this world, I have no friends, everything is so blurry, I can't enjoy anything anymore. I am always anxious and think everyone is always judging me, because they usually are. I am so scared to go to Highschool next year, everybody hates me and I am painfully shy and don't know how to make friends or how to be myself around people. I spend my time pacing around my bedroom thinking about a better life and how everything could have been so perfect if I haven't lost everything I ever had. Is there anybody who understands how I feel?
Additional Details
I always used to think I was very attractive, not to sound conceited, but ever since my life has changed for the worst, I feel like the ugliest person in the world. I wish I could be someone else.

Find one thing you can enjoy about every present moment, forget the future and the past, and hold on to that single good thing you find. If you find nothing, change what you're doing, move until you find something beautiful.


The red spy
Right now, I wish i could hug you. I was like that (but without the mom part) and it felt horrible. What I did for the time being was i though of the good things in life.

your not alone ! and it should comfort you that that is true. If your school is against you. You need to talk to your parents about changing schools ! If that is not an option then you have the chance to be as strong as you can be, don't let them bring you down! It's you against them! now i'm not saying that you should put blue hair color in "miss popular's" shampoo or spred roomers that some one is using stuffing and it's not in the Thanksgiving turkey . what i'm saying is to be your own person do things that make YOU happy whether that is listening to music or painting or styling your hair do it ! don't let them drag you down you cannot let your problems get the best of you if your upset don't be afraid to cry because we all have bad days it's a fact of life "nobodys perfect" not even the kids that are at your school they are certainly not perfect! and before you say she does not know what it's like or go shove that "Be Happy " crap where the sun don't shine I have to say i can relate to it all I'm 17 I don't make good grade and never have.there have been so many things that have dissrupted my family and i noted them in this, but i chose to delete them because this is about you not me(and besides it's way to much to read.) but the things in my life the terrible things that have happend to my family they all bring me down it hurts me it hurts my family but you know what keeps us going Faith, Not just faith in God which we do have ! but faith that tomorrow might be a better day, that tomorrow we might laugh at what we cryed about yesterday. we think about our problems but know we could be worse off "smile" because we do have each other and at times we might fight like cat's and dog's but we will always love each other we can always count on each other for support or care that no money can buy ! I don't have any school friends but i do have friends and they our my family and some might say that your family is not your friend "well i guess they don't know my family " becuse when the going get's tough we lay our bickering asside and we fight what ever it might be to the end and we always win because we cannot lose we are to strong to lose ! I realy hope this helps you ! I wish the best for you and your Family ! God Bless!Good Luck!,Heather

To feel this depressed as a fourteen year old is NOT good. No one should feel that way. If you feel so hated, try clearing things up. Don't be so down. If you don't show pride and positive feelings toward yourself, no one will.

Going to another high school is an idea. Honestly, you need to find another family. If you keep at this level, you will most likely end up thinking of suicide. (THAT IS NOT THE ANSWER.) I'm sure you love your mom and all but you need family that will be there for you. Try Child Protective Services. You can find the number online. They don't mess around either.

Try to be happy, try to make friends.

High school can be a great thing for you.
Theres tons of more people and a lot more people are accepting. You meet people who are more like you, if you have trouble making friends cause of your past point out it's your past. Also at high schools they have consolers who you can talk to who are usually a ton of help. have you ever considered you should live in a better environment? maybe you should move to an other family members house or call child services, etc also theres numbers you can call 24 hours for help just search it online. and lastly i know what it feels like to be you, be open to change, be open to religion, and be opened to be loved back, and love yourself.

hope that helps

i understand sooooo much how you feel. ur going to highschool so you have a new start. be who you wanna be (b a r b i e) lol im sorry writing that just reminded me of the commercial.


Sissica16
i know how you feel , im your age and i too am going to highschool next year....i am also very shy but im sorry that that happened to you...i know from experience how cruel people can be, and i know what its like to have a deadbeat parent in my case, my father....hes never there for me.... you are not alone. i promise...and i bet you will get some very negative comments from people on here....calling you names stuff like that but....if you are a christian...then just put your faith in God and pray everyday that things will get better and if you mean it...sooner or later God will make that happen... all you should do until then is be nice to everyone no matter how mean they are to you..as they say "kill them with kindness" ive done it before and it does work....im sure you are very pretty and you will make at least one true friend along the way..

I know you got a lot of answers, and might not get to mine, but I just wanted you to know that I was your same situation last year.
High school helped a lot. I felt more free and that people didn't care so much about me, or judging me. I also tried a therapist, but she just got me so pissed off. I can't stand the way she talked to me, but I guess thats all shrinks do.
But the thing that helped the most is that I had to realize that I'm living my life for me, not them.
At the beginging of high school, I started going to church. I had never ever gone before and it might sound dumb or stupid or not fun. But I found a really good exciting church. Not catholic, its protestant. I went to their youth group and it changed my entire life. I accepted God into my life and everything has been different. It can still be hard, but finding hapiness and joy in the world is no longer impossible for me. I have met dozens of wonderful people and I get out of the house now. I really hope you take it to heart and even just try a youth group. They will welcome you, support you and overall, God can help you with what you are going through. He knows your heart, where you are at and will always be at your side. I hope things get better for you. You're in my prayers.

Is there another family member that you can talk to that can help you? I would suggest a switch to another psychiatrist . . .assuming you are seeing a psychiatrist that is prescribing you meds, those meds aren't working obviously. Otherwise, you are seeing a psychologist for therapy. Either way, you need a change of pace. The health professional is not helping you. Growing up with an addicted parent has got to be terrible. That's why I was asking if you can depend on any other family or family friends to help you out because I'm guessing your mother is pretty unavailable when it comes to your needs. It's hard to have everyone turn on you at school, I had that happen to me when I was younger. It was miserable. That's why I know you need some help. I felt very much alone during high school and even though I had a few close friends, I didn't think they really understood what I was going through. And that was a deep depression, very much like what you are describing. I didn't enjoy anything, I spent my time sitting on the floor in my bedroom, crying and listening to depressing music wishing I was somewhere else, wish I was someone else, felt like people judged me and thought I was a poser. You need to get some serious help and I hope and pray that someone is there to see that you get it. You should not have to go through this alone.

aww its okkk...sooo manyy people feel like this...trust me your not alonnee. im your friend (:.
everythings gunna get better nothing can stay this bad foreeverr trust me i used to feel like this too.just because you lost your friends doesnt mean everyone hates you. i no you probly think everyone does and it may seem that way but just focus on your grades and other activities. if being in other activities is not helping because you feel like everyone there is judging you( which they probly arent cause i know d never do soemhitng lke tht so not EVERYONE can be) then try doing things on your own at home. for now since your starting highschool focus on your grades and just getting into colege and stuff, having friends in highschool doesnt depend on whats going to happen in the future. things that happen in school effect soo many poeples futures. personally if i had to choose between having friends that are "fake" and having no friends id choose no friends. you need to do what helps you and not trying to fit in and being popular. im 14 too and imj not gunna lie im scared out of my mind to start hightschool, but im trying to not worry about where i fit in and just live life how it is. just remember you onbly live once and you want to have it be a good life. having those fake friends isnt wats good just wait and new people will come along tht you can love and trustt even if it doesnt happen till college. trustt me youll be finee just give it timee (:

Life is complicated the best you can do is read a book for teens, i would recommend my sister keeper, go ask alice or 1984 something to keep you mind off your problems. before the school year start start jogging exercise it will help you relax then get a new haircut and start you year fresh dont worry about what people says, there are always going to be haters but you need to rise above them. good luck nd best wishes.

a lot of people go thru what your goin thru right now. ive had a whole school come up wit rumors bout me once. hold your head up high and be careful who you choose to be your friends. my so called friends are the one that started the rumor.. i know what its like to not have friends.. but i dont know what its like to not have a mom to go to to talk to bout things. i promise high school will be nothing like middle school. its amazing how people grow up during that summer. and if some people dont grow up then there just complete losers. in my highschool they had guidance counselors.. and you can talk to them bout anything under the sun pretty much. theyre there for you and will cater to your every need. my heart goes out to you and i hope there will soon be light on the end of this tunnel. 2 things to remember.. 1. something good always comes out of something bad. 2. you need to find SOMETHING that makes you happy.. cuz if you waste days and days being unhappy, your never gonna get that time back. there isnt a reciept on life, or a rewind button. live each day to the fullest that it possibly could be. set goals for yourself and push yourself to achieve them. if the world turns there back on you... so be it. let them. its just time for you to be YOUR OWN best friend. dont try to make other people happy in life. make yourself happy. BE SELFISH i guess you can say. if you ever need to talk my email is [email protected] feel free to im me if you just need to vent or get something off your shoulders. it helped me a lot to just tell people things.. or even write thoughts down and think bout them long and hard and then throw that paper away.

OK STOP IT! ok stop thinking that youlife is sooooo terrible and start thinking about the good things in life! maybe pray to god everyday! maybe start trying to make new friends that just moved there or something! if you always expect bad things BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN! So what that wasnt your best year! SO WHAT! Just work on getting next year to be better! did you know that most kids mature when they go to high school! I bet people will laugh about what they called you and call it foolish and childish! if you always expect bad things they will happen! maybe try a new group of friends! what ever you do please do not insult those girl becuase they will just turn on you again! what you do if someone is bothering you ignore them and eventually they will get bored of bothering someone that doesnt care! Just THINK POSITIVE! Pray everyday and things will get better i promise you!

I'M VERY SORRY TO HEAR HOW SAD YOU ARE FEELING. I'LL TELL YOU RIGHT UP FRONT I'M A MOM. I HAVE 3 SON'S WHO HAVE PASSED THE AGE OF 14 AND A DAUGHTER WHO IS11.I CAN TELL YOU ONE THING AT AGE 14 ALL OF MY SONS WERE MISERABLE. I THINK 14 IS THE ROUGHEST AGE IN LIFE. PERSONALLY I WAS MISERABLE AT 14 ALSO. FIRST OFF I'M SURE YOUR NOT UGLY SO LET THAT ONE GO.I DON'T THINK YOUR CRAZY EITHER.BEING 14 IS HARD AND WITH AN ALCOHOLIC MOM THAT REALLY STINKS.14 YEAR OLDS HAVE A LOT OF MOOD SWINGS DUE TO HORMONES THAT PROBABLY LEAVE YOU FEELING SAD AND ALL ALONE. THE GIRLS WHO PRETENDED TO BE YOUR FRIENDS WERE GOING THROUGH THEIR OWN PROBLEMS AND THEY PUT YOU DOWN BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT IT MADE THEM LOOK BETTER.----- WRONG ----THEY ARE THE LOOSERS. I ALSO KNOW IT'S VERY HARD TO FIND A PSYCIATRIST WHO REALLY UNDERSTANDS TODAYS TEENAGERS. LIFE IS HARDER FOR KIDS TODAY THAN IT USE TO BE. MOST TEENAGERS TODAY ARE WAY TOO MATERALISTIC.THEY THINK YOUR NOT COOL IF YOU DON'T HAVE EXPENSIVE CLOTHES,MP 3 PLAYERS ,COMPUTERS,CELL PHONES. THAT'S ALL JUST A LOAD OF CRAP. YOU HAVE TO HANG IN THERE AND BEIEVE THAT THINGS WILL GET BETTER. MIDDLE SCHOOL IS THE WORST. HIGH SCHOOL IS ACTUALLY BETTER. LESS TIGHT CLICKS YOU HAVE MORE WIGGLE ROOM TO BE WHO YOU ARE. THERE ARE ALOT OF OTHER KIDS OUT THERE WHO FEEL SCARED LIKE YOU. SO RIGHT OFF THE BAT YOU HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON. DON'T ACT LIKE ANYTHING BUT YOUR TRUE SELF. YOU DON'T NEED TO BE FAKE OR HAVE FAKE FRIENDS. FAKE=LOOSER I THINK IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO JOIN A SPORT OR CLUB IN SCHOOL. IT BRINGS YOU IN A SMALLER GROUP AND YOU ALL HAVE THE SAME INTEREST AND GOALS ON YOUR TEAM OR CLUB. SOMETHING ELSE YOU MIGHT FIND HELPFUL IS TRYING TO WRITE IN A JOURNAL. YOU HAVE THE FREEDOM TO EXPRESS YOUSELF ANYWAY YOU WANT. YOU CAN WRITE ABOUT WHAT YOU DO. OR A POEM OR A SONG .YOU CAN WRITE SOMEONE YOUR ANGRY WITH A NASTY LETTER AND PULL IT OUT AND TEAR IT UP. THAT'S SOMETIME A GOOD WAY TO WORK THROUGH ANGER AND PAIN. REMEMBER THHINGS DO HAVE A WAY OF WORKING THEMSELVES OUT. EVERY EXPERIENCE, EVEN BAD ONES MAKE YOU WHO YOU WILL BE TOMORROW. I HOPE I SHED SOME LIGHT ON A VERY DARK TIME IN YOUR LIFE.

well, welcome to the teens. you have not lost everything, you are not ugly, and your life is not over because kids are mean to you in school. there is a whole world waiting for you, full of people who will appreciate you, and even love you. you are not alone. trust me. learn a way to express your anger and frustration and sadness...write poems in a journal, draw..even badly, listen to songs that you can relate to.. and don't give up! believe it or not, this is pretty much normal for your age, and i remember it very clearly. it really does get better, and easier. i promise. find at least one soul who has similar likes and dislikes for a friend and be the best person you can be. if someone betrays you, learn from it and grow stronger...learn not to be a betrayer. the mean ones regret it later, and the ones who were shy and scared end up seeing things clearer and more intelligently than most. be yourself, be ok. much love.

Oh, honey I'm so sorry. Alot of people feel this way and I understand what its like to feel lost, lonely and to constantly be dreaming about a better life. Maybe you could use High School to your advantage. I'm sure their will be new people to have a fresh start with. Introduce yourself to them, talk to them about likes and hobbies, find people who have the same interest as you do. And sometimes if you just have a good attitude and stand tall, more people will like you.

I'm very sorry about your mother also. Kids are extremely cruel I don't really know why but they are, trust me adults aren't nearly as bad as them, things get better as you get older. Kids stop being so hateful and judgemental. And think about it this way, you only have four years left until you can leave and rise above all the bad in the world. Try joining clubs where you could make friends, if you like sports, do sports. If you like music, you could join band.

Also you could try trying out for the school plays, drama people are usually very kind and excepting. Plus while your doing these activities it will take your mind off the way you feel and you may end up feeling a whole lot better. Don't be picky about friends, don't try to just have friends who are cool and popular, often kids who are thought of as outsiders or nerds are very kind and you could be friends with them.

Make sure you act like yourself from the moment you meet someone, don't pretend to be anyone your not because the moment you let down your gaurd and show who you really are, people will be shocked to learn your not who you pretended to be. So just always be yourself.

I am so sorry you feel this way, things will get better though, everything will work out all right, just hold on, it'll be okay. And also make sure your actually telling your therapist EVERYTHING about the way you feel, if your hiding things,m they can't help you very well. I hope you feel better.

Much luck, just take deep breaths and take things one day at a time.

You'll be okay, Hold On.

You are not alone! If they stabbed you in the back then they weren't your friends, stay strong there are other people out there that won't treat you like that.

If you ever need anyone to talk to you can contact me.

Aw. All I have to say is you are a very stong person and I admire you. I mean sure there was crap but look at how far you've come without like comitting suicide. These are just mistakes. Just let this all blow over and start fresh.

I went through something similar to that in middle school / high school.
You just gotta wait it out girl. Don't do anything you'll regret.
You'll meet people in high school that are going through things similar to your situation since there are more kids. Good look, and just don't loose your cool.

I can't think of a single person who hasn't felt the way you do. I can promise you that it gets a whole lot better! I totally felt the way you did... probably even worse! The thing to do is realize that in 4 years you could be out of your house and on to bigger and better things. I have exactly 2 friends still from high school, and I'm in my 30s, and we only got in touch after we were adults. The best thing for you to do is to calm down, take a deep breath, and promise yourself that you're going to make yourself feel good every day.

Don't take yourself or anyone else too seriously. Your life hasn't even begun yet! Go to school and be confident. Do well in school and plan to go to college directly when you graduate. I totally felt just like you did, but I got through school and went on to become and airline pilot and now I'm married to the man of my dreams.

It's perfectly normal to feel anxious. If you need to talk to someone, ask your mom if you can start seeing a counselor, not a psychiatrist. That's what I did and she was awesome. However, trust me you are totally normal. Be good to yourself and don't be so hard on yourself. YOU ARE OK!

Hang in there, things WILL get better - I promise! Your life outside of high school will be great. Trust me!
