I would also feel great if anyone free rn helped me with this
Hey, how can I help you?
maybe u could take me venting through text if free?
maybe you can talk to me
Sure, go on. I'm ears.
well firstly all my close friends have moved away and i can't contact them, at least for a couple months or maybe more... and my parents have more things on their plate... I feel like I'm not being myself and I find myself doing things I swore I would never do in my life... and me being an introvert doesn't help me fit in the new school I just joined... although everything I say would seem lame it's not actually not good for me...
and the fact that I'm good at things some humiliated me for not doing the right way also is bugging me... all bcz of my introverted self...
I see, I feel you. I'm studying at a new place too, and even though it's been months, I don't really know how many of my classmates wouldn't mind me calling them my friends.
it isn't lame at all, I totally get you
the "I'm not being myself" part is relatable too
I'm not able to express what I'm actually thinking ot feeling and i feel like utter crap bcz of this... n my now ex bestie may have also unfriended me without saying after she got into a relationship and i just realised our friendship had been toxic from day one
Let's see how we can try to fix this
Tell me honestly, do you think you're living for yourself?
sure I would feel great with any kind of help you know
living for myself... not really
maybe 20% for myself
You'll find millions of solutions on the internet
but I'll tell you the real secret
I'm just a 17 year old to be and me being a depressed teen is so cliche and I'm hating it
I know you're trying to find ways to deal with your life and stuff because I've been through the same, and kind of going through it even now
Guess what, I'm 17 to be too!
I wish I was a bit stronger than my original self you know... maybe at least as much as u
woah cool... ig I just found a new buddy then
But I realized just recently, it depends on how we take things, nothing else. literally nothing else. then I decided just a day before I'll never cry. and I'll live for myself, no one else. guess what, I haven't cried even once since them
I don't think I'll be able to do that.. but I'll try changing things...
So I don't know how, but this promise I made myself, I wrote it down, set it as my wallpaper, posted it here on this platform, and literally jotted it down everywhere. so that I remind myself. that I've made a promise. to myself. and you can break any promise. but that one promise you make to yourself, no matter how emotionally weak u r, you cannot break it.
how much ever I try it's just the fragile me in the end... but like u said I've never lived for myself... I need to start doing that
you can, because I never thought I could do this, but I really think I'm improving.
you're doing a wonderful job then.. I'll learn to do that
change is slow, it takes time. but this change needs only that one push. then it keeps getting better. see, when you start seeing 1% things more positively, your mind will assume that you are recently experiencing positivity more than before. Then it'll start thinking positive by itself. and you'll see 1% even more positive. and the cycle keeps going. so you see, just one step. the start. the promise.
thanks a lot @itsmeee... what u did actually made me feel better... 💕I hope we can be friends in future
why future, let's do it now :)
you're too similar to me anyways
yeah that's true but if something negative happens, even if a negligible things I chicken out
I see myself in u
💞call me sam
do u use social media? well ur 16 so obviously u must be... but just asking
that's what we're trying to neglect, try to think of it like this, that the negative only affects you, your life, so it's upto you how you take it. if you chicken out, you're involving the rest of the world. the world says its negative, and you believe it is
not really, I'm currently studying for an exam, so no social media rn :(
yeah... I need to stop taking others opinions too seriously firstly
Okay Sam, well, I don't have a short name but you can call me Gauri 😅
oh what are studying for? please dont tell me neet Or jee
Yeah lol jee
ugh u too huh... well I'm glad my papa didn't force me into those
don't get me wrong, I'm not forced
that's fine then... I said that because I don't fidn many studying for neet Or jee without being forced... sry if what I said was wrong
what are your plans anyways
well... I want to try out forensic science
no lol it's fine, and it's also true
so you're preparing for something or applying somewhere?
not rn... I'm not sure what i need to prepare for before my ug so just letting things go on its own
applied for toefl n ielts in case I move abroad for further edu
yeah great, I have those as options too if in case I need to, but if I don't, I'll apply in future anyways for pg
