Real conversations with your students.

"There's a lot on my to do list and I feel it piling up"

"I feel constantly disappointed about myself because I know I can do better, but I don't seem to be able to."

"Wowwww thats so cool!"

"I totally agree thanks!"

"“Thats a good idea! Ive never tried that. Usually each day I just get a 1-2 hour nap...Alright i will definitely have to! Thank you so much”"

"How do I make a paper airplane?"

"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."

"I get bullied a lot"

"I just got rejected by a girl 😂"

"“I have tried to talk a little bit to my parents but I didnt like seeing them upset, plus they are already worried about me to much as it is, I dont want to add more weight on them anymore. And I dont trust the counselors anymore”"

"it's all good!! just been thinking ab school & life in general. it's all stressful"

"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. She said apparently I did something on purpose and I should know what it is. Now she won't talk to me and I'm still confused. Any advice???"

"I listened to your most recent podcast about confidence, and I thought it was epic.🤙 I had a question that's related to it about something I've been dealing with recently. I already typed it up to explain the situation, and it is very long haha. Is that alright...?"

"yes i really think being friends with her will be the best option. and thank you very much! Thank you for helping me think of new things to do to help myself!"

"Kind of because I don't know where J belong"

"Yeah, my aunt took a stroke, the doctors didn’t know why and it wasn’t looking very good. She had a severe brain bleed and their hope was that her brain would swell and stop the bleeding. But 12 hours later her brain was still bleeding. She had a 3% chance of pulling through but by 8 last night she was brain dead so they took her off life support and around 4 this morning she passed"

"What can I do to improve my mood?"

"That's a very structured way of looking at it, I think that would be a great start"

"I want girls to like me"

"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."

"That is true. I'm just happy that I'm able to help him"

"I turned in the test today, wish me luck."

"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."

"I just dont rlly have anyone i can talk or relate to. Idk just feeling lonely and a little overwhelmed."

"Thanks for the wonderful advice"

"Okay so uh I've been thinking a lot about suicide recently, about how there isn't really any point to doing anything because you're just surviving to be ruled by someone else - I made a suicide poem and like know how I would do it and where and what I would dress in but I know I won't do it if that makes any sense? Idk what to feel"

"My friends say I talk too much, any tips on how to talk less?"

"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 am very sad and don't feel like attending class."

"hey, so i have this friend who i don't want to be friends with anymore but i don't know what to do?"
