I've had a relapse but I'm terrified to tell anyone, because I think I've failed on recovery.

It's alright to have a relapse, just make sure you pick yourself right up again and go back to abstaining from whatever you relapsed into rather than letting the relapse affect your resolve.

recovery is never easy so expecting everything to go smoothly is just setting yourself up to be let down


don't be afraid to ask for help

Today my teacher asked us what we would ask for if we had one wish. We all wrote them down anonymously and he read them out.

Out of the entire class, there were 8 wishes for cars, 2 wishes to be a rock star, 12 for money, 4 to meet a favorite celebrity, 3 for designer clothes, and 5 for an all expenses paid vacation.

I've never been so disappointed with my peers in my entire life. Out of thirty five students 34 of them would waste their one wish on materialistic things.


I just wished that my mom were alive.

They were just fortunate enough to not lose their mothers. I'm sorry for your loss, but judging them based on something that meaningless is pointless and a waste of your time.

i emotionally latch onto any guy that is physically affectionate with me. i have incredibly low self-esteem ... and 'any guy' includes guys at bars. which is sad and pathetic, but i can't help it.

i don't know what to do

Just be strong. Don't actually let them get "physically affectionate" with you until they are emotionally affectionate.

Honestly, I would have thought it were simple to see.

logic doesn't work with people who have low self-esteem or other issues. peopple can't help the way they feel.

Actually, if one is open to it, logic works for everyone. And people can help the way they feel. Positive mind-sets will change how one feels if one allows it. The only thing keeping people back from changing is themselves.

Physics is great if you're good at it, and if you're genuinely interested in it. If not, you might want to drop that course and just admire the hotness in the halls instead.

I hated kids like you when I was in school. Skipping one day isn't going to kill you, and you could actually have *gasp* fun while not risking your school "career." Live a little, you're only young once.

Not the OP

I hated kids like you--the ones who tried to tear people down for not giving in to whatever they wanted.
Maybe skipping one day wouldn't hurt and sure it might be fun--but it's the principle of the matter. The OP shouldn't have to do anything he or she doesn't want to do, and real friends would respect that he/she said NO. No means NO.
Plus, if the OP backs down and gives in to this, who is to say that "friend" won't wheedle him or her to do more?

To the OP, good for you for sticking up for yourself. No means no and if they don't like it, they can kiss your ass.
yes you are only young once, but you also have only one YOU, and you should never compromise yourself for ANYONE.

Re: Not the OP

Blah, blah, blah. All I hear is "I'm a prude who never did any fun and now I have to make sure that the people who did have fun when they were younger are told that they are bad."

Get over it, and move on. It wasn't your battle anyway. Get a life.

Re: Not the OP

You hear what you want to hear.

I had a lot of fun when I was younger, just not by tearing people down who didn't want to join me. I don't think anyone is bad, UNLESS they're trying to tear people down who just don't want to join in.

as for "getting a life", that insult is just so cliche and old. Come up with something original.

Re: Not the OP

Who said anyone was tearing down people? I never did, and yet I still managed to have fun while not being a prude. If the OP doesn't want to join in, that's fine, I just think they're missing out so I stated such.

Try to not be so bitter next time just because someone has a different view than you. I stated my opinion, yet you tried to tear me down for it. You're just as bad as you're trying to make me out to be.

different person

actually, skipping school for a day DOES risk my school career. important information goes on in class, extra credit is passed out randomly, etc. when someone is near the top in terms of gpa and academic achievement, the margin gets smaller and competition is neck and neck. therefore, any small additional effort does make a big difference... but you wouldnt know that, now would you average kid?

Re: different person

Average? Thank you very much for the laugh.

While in high school, I was actually in AP classes. But thank you for the assumption.

By the way, you might enjoy life more if you risked a day. Honestly, one day will not put you that far behind. Get some fun in your life.

Not getting involved in the debate, it's obviously pointless.

To the OP: I've no idea what the situation is, but if your best friend does this all the time, then it's understandable why you might not want to do the same. It's definately important to live a little when you can, because experiences like that aren't always going to be possible later on. But, when/if you do go ahead and "break the rules", it should be because you want to be doing that, and not because someone else thinks that you should - otherwise, it's just not really as enjoyable.

I am so hopelessly and pathetically in love with him--and he is gay.
And it kills me to hear him say this girl or that girl is "cute," but he never tells me I am.

Still, just to be near him at all just makes me feel so wonderful.

God please just help me stop, before I ruin the good friendship we DO have.

A friend of mine wants to set me up with one of our mutual friends. It caught me off guard when she said it because I had never thought of him that way. He's a really nice guy and he's funny and we have a lot in common, except for one thing: He's skinny and I'm fat. Not horribly fat, but I am overweight. That combined with the facts that I haven't been in a relationship since 2005, the last few people I've been interested in have broken my heart, and I have low self esteem makes it hard for me to believe that someone could like me.

We all got together over the weekend for some drinks and she swears that he was flirting with me all night, and I kind of thought so too, but like I said we were drinking.

The two people I talked to about it told me to just go for it. I'd like to, but I really don't want my "issues" to get in the way and ruin something awesome that could be there.

Your issues, whatever they are, will likely always be there- they're apart of you. Give it a chance- he might really like you for who you are (issues or not).
