Real conversations with your students.
"How do I deal with friends that keep fighting and get me in the middle of their drama?"
"Thanks for the wonderful advice"
"I have a math test tomorrow and that's the only class holding me back from my 4.0 and if I don't do good I'll lose it"
"I get bullied a lot"
"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."
"How do I increase self-confidence while performing or just stage fright in general?"
"I have 3 F's and I'm super stressed because I'm normally a straight A student"
"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 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"
"Thank you, I love getting messages that make me stop what I'm doing and think about things that leave me in a more positive attitude than before!"
"Man are u a real person? Also I am burnt out. But answer both questions plez"
"Guess what? I aced my test, 100/100!"
"I just got rejected by a girl 😂"
"I turned in the test today, wish me luck."
"Yes you too!! Thanks for helping me feel better"
"I’m feeling nervous"
"i have another question. how do you feel good about yourself and things you are good at without seeming self centered?"
"Should I get help if I feel anxious most of the time?"
"How do you get rid of a sore throat?"
"My friends mom passed away and I don't really know what to say to him. I don't want to sound insensitive but I don't what to sound pitiful, so any advice?"
"Well thank you amazing human too! It's so awesome that you take time to talk to strangers and brighten their day through this program. Keep it up! Have a great day"
"That is true. I'm just happy that I'm able to help him"
"Bro a lot. Too much for a text i can barely speak what i need to say"
"Lately I've started liking this guy in my friend group and he's really nice and everyone I know loves him but my best friend and it's been making me feel super guilty because she doesn't like being around him. I'm not really sure what to do about it though because I'm trying really hard to not pressure her and talk about him around her but I still feel like its causing a strain in our friendship"
"I'm stressed with my grades still. Normally I have all A's but I have a C in math that I've been trying to get up but I don't get the unit I missed"
"I’ll give that a try, I appreciate the words of advice, they’re quite comforting."
"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?"
"No worries, monster texts are usually the best 😊 That is really helpful actually- I'm a visual learner, and that is a good image. Do you have any suggestions on how to get back to the inner circle? I get so caught up in the dregs I forget how to get out"
"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"
