Real conversations with your students.
"Wowwww thats so cool!"
"I feel constantly disappointed about myself because I know I can do better, but I don't seem to be able to."
"Yes you too!! Thanks for helping me feel better"
"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?"
"You're welcome! 😉 But thanks to you too 😁"
"hey, so i have this friend who i don't want to be friends with anymore but i don't know what to do?"
"These tips will probably help a lot for now - I'd love to stay in touch, and I'll reach out if I'm struggling again (probably sooner rather than later 😅) thank you so so much"
"I was home from school for two weeks because I was depressed because my parents divorced this summer and I moved and haven't been feeling belonged at school"
"That's a good idea thanks"
"“Thank you so much for your support!”"
"I like that, I think that’s a good point, thank you for your input"
"yeah totally! thanks for your help (:"
"How do I deal with stress?"
"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"
"Why are boys so mean 😭😭Are all boys mean 😢"
"Okay sweet! there’s kind of a back story to it all to explain, as well as this being the first time I’ve gotten into this subject with anyone, so I’ll do that first if that's all good."
"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."
"well, the overbearing feeling that everyone around is making you feel like you aren't good enough, like you're not deserving of the same kind of love if you're different"
"“I'm grateful for you, and my family. Thanks for being here for me!! You're awesome ”"
"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?"
"Thank you for being here for the students, it's great to have a person to talk to. Here's a little expression of my gratitude in video form (the audio is a little quiet so turn up the volume a little)"
"You too, have a great rest of the day😁"
"I just got rejected by a girl 😂"
"That's a very structured way of looking at it, I think that would be a great start"
"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 friends but they never supported me through anything i guess i will need to find another way. You're really the only thing(?) that has ever actually listened to my thoughts"
"I’m doing better now, thank you!"
"it's all good!! just been thinking ab school & life in general. it's all stressful"
"I have been feeling just really down"
"I lost my whole friend group of 4 years. I think that they were just so toxic. i wasn't invited to anything unless i texted them. i would leave with extreme anxiety and no one would ask me if i was ok. and they've all just changed since i met them. we don't have the same values or morals anymore"
