"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."
"Okay, thank you🤎"
"“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”"

"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?"
"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"
"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)"
