You made it a whole year, that’s something to be celebrated! If you’ve managed a year, that means next time you can aim to remain clean for two years. Unfortunately there will always be times when we make mistakes and relapse but you have to realise that you are still strong and amazing. You may fall down but just get back up again.

Talk to your parents and/or teachers and/or friends about the stress you’re feeling. If you are failing (below 50%) then talk to your teachers and ask for help, that’s what they are there for. They’ll be glad you asked for help and they’ll be able to show you where you’re going wrong and how you can fix it.

I know it’s silly but trust me, this time, next year (or a year after you graduate), you’re going to look back and realise school isn’t the most important thing. Just keep focused and have a goal and strive for that goal.

Never apologise darling, it’s what we are here for. It’s going to be okay, trust me on this, it will be okay. You are not a failure, you are human and you are amazing.

I really love him, and he's the best thing that has ever happened to me. I just wish I could be with him always. I get a little empty sometimes, but he pulls me out of the darkness and in general I'm very happy. Thank you for everything you've done for me."

That’s so great!!!! I am so incredibly happy for you. It’s great that you have him who can help you out as well, having a supportive circle of friends and family is the best thing in recovering (or at least that’s what I’ve found in the past).

We’re always here to help and listen, even if you just want to tell us how good life has been going we’re still here hear to listen :D

So proud of you,

Oh gosh I’m sorry but she sounds really controlling and has to make everything about her. Unfortunately, with a friend very similar I understand fully the position you are in.

You have two options, put up with it or end the friendship. Tell her how you’re feeling and that you don’t like how she’s treating you. Stand up for yourself as much as possible so she realises she can’t push you around and tread all over you.

If you want to end the friendship don’t be rude to her, just let it sizzle out. Make new friends, hang with them drift away slowly and politely.

Sorry, I know it’s a shitty position to be in. There’s not much you can do besides yeah, putting up with it (and ignoring her when she gets in her moods) or end the friendship. Wishing you all the best though and just try not to let her get to you. Bitch to your mum or dad when it gets bad, that always helps :)

To the followers who are in high school and taking AP classes, good luck on your exams!! The stress form worrying about the exam will soon be over!

To the followers in college, be happy because you’re almost at the finish line! Just a few final exams and you’re free for summer break!

Just remember that grades are not the most important thing and getting one bad grade isn’t going to mess up your life!

Anonymous asked: "I feel lonely allot. I have some friends from school but I never hang out with them outside of school but I'm always to nervous to approach people and ask if they want to hang out I get nervous and think they probably won't want to, what should I do?"

The internet is a wonderful place at times. If you feel uncomfortable asking in person, send them a message be like “hey remember that time we talked about how you wanted to watch that movie? Do you wanna go see it together?” If you hang out at school I’m sure they’ll say yes, unless they’re busy or already seen the movie.

Another option is say it to the whole group, by asking the whole group if they want to hang out at least one will say yes. It is likely all the group will want to hang out and do something but are likely to be shy like you.

It can be nerve wracking but just remember they’re already your friends :D

Anonymous asked: "One of my best friend keeps saying she hates her life and is trying to commit suicide. What do I do??"

Talk to her, sit her down and ask her why she hates her life. The only thing you can really do is constantly remind her that you are there for her (and prove it to her through what you do.) Remind her that she is loved and she is wanted. There’s not a lot to do except those.

If you are truly concerned that she may attempt suicide, tell your parents or her parents or any adult who will listen. Don’t say nothing.

Once when I was really upset, my friend h changed my laptop background to her pulling a silly face and writing little notes about how much I mean to her. Things like that can help a person to remember that they are needed and loved in the world.

I am so sorry about your loss sweetheart :( I don’t understand the loss of a parent but I send you and your family good thoughts.

I know it’s hard but you have to try to not feel guilty. You are a teenager and spending time with your friends and boyfriend is what you do! Your dad completely understood (according to his girlfriend) and would not want you to feel guilty about not seeing him. I promise you that he would not want you to lose yourself and your friends/boyfriend. 

Your friends and boyfriend obviously want you around, that’s why they’re in your life! More than likely they just don’t know what to say or do right now since they don’t understand what you’re going through and they don’t want to say or do the wrong thing and upset you. Just explain to them how you’re feeling and that you need time to grieve your dad but that you would love their company to help you get through this/maybe provide some distractions.

You definitely need some time to grieve but don’t forget to live life because your dad would want you to live your life to the fullest!

My parents divorced when I was really little but my parents remained friends and I was always so close to my dad. i would go up to his house every other weekend, I loved my dad so much and loved spending time with him. As I got older I stopped going up every weekend. I became to preoccupied with my boyfriend and friends and never went to see him, when he needed me to most. I feel so guilty"
