"I also want your opinion on something real quick: Which one should I get. Two lockets. One is a heart and the other’s an oval. They’re both the same amount. Which one should I get? The heart is the most popular, but oval is more sentimental to some?"

Idk what to feel"

"My best friend texted me saying she is fed up with me hurting her feelings and being mean, I don't know what I've done and apologized if I've ever done anything not on purpose.

"I miss my dad, he seems to be the only one who calm me down lately. And i'm stuck in my room breaking down while trying finishing assignments before the quarter ends so i don't have a bad grade, and i just need him to be here. He's at work right now in Nevada cause he works as a fire fighter there, but i just want him to be here."
"“I'm grateful for you, and my family. Thanks for being here for me!! You're awesome ”"
"my older sister and i got into an argument and she moved out so i had to step up as older sister and then my dad kicked my mom out so i feel like i have a lot of pressure on me"
"Soo, the other day I got into a really heated argument with my best friend's mom, because they kinda make my friend feel down. I went to confront her, but it turned into an argument. I said some things I'm not too proud of, and wrote her an apology note, but um. I still feel sick from what I said."

"Quite a bit, a lot has changed for my recently, I told my parents about wanting to disassociate myself from their religion, and that's been just difficult because I'm trying to figure out what to believe, I recently gave up pornography as well, and it's been such a struggle without it, I've had an addiction to it for a few years now, so everyday life just seems much harder than usual, and as the end of the quarter nears my schoolwork is just ridiculous, so it's been quite hard to feel happy these past couple weeks"
"I don’t enjoy my life anymore.I mess everything up. I dont like it. My life is painful and since then I've had 2 suicide attempts. Been like this since mid 2019"
"Well for one I'm just sad a lot of the time, I guess we could call that depression at this point, and I often act happy and good natured, and I'm trying to transition away from the religion of the masses here in St George, but I don't expect any of them to be able to understand, so I keep it to myself. Whenever I talk to them I feel like I'm constantly filtering what I really want to say because they wouldn't be ok with it"
"I have a question, I have a friend who hasn't been making the best choices and so I've been trying to stop being friends with her how do I do that without hurting her feelings?"
"That's a good thought, everyone has something to contribute, sometimes it's just hard to see my part when others seem to have so much more to contribute than I do, I appreciate your help, this program is a really great idea"
"The bullying has been happening for a few weeks and I honestly don't know why. Me and another girl got a note directed towards me called me a f---ing retard and behind my back this kid called me an ugly a--hole. i try not to let it bother me though it's not super important cos (this sounds weird and far fetched ik) likeeeeeee why would he call me ugly unless he thought i have a higher opinion of myself then that, so he prolly knows i couldn't care less about his words like they hurt but i know he's verbally abused at home and i don't put up with it and he can't handle not having the right reactions from me."
"I actually just got my grade up from a C to an A-"
"I just dont rlly have anyone i can talk or relate to. Idk just feeling lonely and a little overwhelmed."
"Thank you so much. This program really is amazing!"
"The end of the quarter is kinda sucky rn"
"Thank you so much for the help and advice!"
"My boyfriend broke up with me"
"Do you think I have depression?"
"You're welcome! 😉 But thanks to you too 😁"
"I have funeral I'm going to, ACT stuff is being shoved in my head, I have 4 college classes to keep up on, skills USA is coming up and I've been nominated to participate, and I have two jobs"
"I'll try to gain the courage to talk to someone irl, if not I'll come back to talk to you- it's easy to release over text honestly 😅"
"Why do I feel like isolating all the time? I tend to hate people a lot, they just annoy me, though I strive for connection I hate connecting then I hate myself for not being able to just be normal, it's kinda twisted🤷🏻♂️"
"I get bullied a lot"
"Sometimes people don't tell me things because they don't want to hurt my feelings,but the fact they don't tell me hurts my feelings. What should I tell them?"
"I feel bad talking to my parents, because I know they will still love me if I let my grades drop and they'll always support me, but it does feel like to much pressure sometimes, especially since my older brother was so good when it came to grades and academic performance. And I'm not close enough with any of my teachers to share this kind of stuff with them...that's a good way to look at it, thank you.”"
"thanks, that's really nice to hear honestly. I hope you have a great day"
"“Thank you so much for your support!”"
"idk. i just get sad randomly sometimes like my depression will just come and hit me out of nowhere when i'm feeling fine. and my doctor thought i might be bipolar but the psychologist said i wasn't so yeh. idk i'm just kinda weird lol"
