Conversations

Real conversations with your students.

"I get bullied a lot"

"I don't feel an intimate connection to anyone in my life and being in the general vicinity of people gives me extreme anxiety."

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

"Thank you so much for the help and advice!"

"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!"

"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"

"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)"

"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! i'm kinda stuck right now & i don't know what to do about this boy! i really like him & we've dated in the past but needed to break up to work on ourselves. we just recently decided to try again because obviously we still like & care for each other! but last night, i found out while we were broken up he did some bad things that he shouldn't have! he regrets it & says he was forced into it. at the end of the day you are responsible for the decision you make & no one can 'force' you🤷🏽‍♀️ i've been thinking about this all day & it makes me sick:( i know it shouldn't affect me this bad because we were broken up but i don't know if i can move past this! he's told me he is sorry SOO many times but it just hurts me:("

"Wowwww thats so cool!"

"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"

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

"im sad i aint at school i wanna kill my self"

"I’ll give that a try, I appreciate the words of advice, they’re quite comforting."

"i have another question. how do you feel good about yourself and things you are good at without seeming self centered?"

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

"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 make a paper airplane?"

"I feel bad talking to my parents, because I know they will still love me if I let my grades drop and they'll always support me, but it does feel like to much pressure sometimes, especially since my older brother was so good when it came to grades and academic performance. And I'm not close enough with any of my teachers to share this kind of stuff with them...that's a good way to look at it, thank you.”"

"You're welcome! 😉 But thanks to you too 😁"

"Yea I'm so relieved now, 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”"

"I enjoy all of this information"

"I’m feeling nervous"

"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"

"I totally agree thanks!"

"How do I deal with very opinionated friends?"

"I actually just got my grade up from a C to an A-"

"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"

"How do I feel better"
