I love baseball and I want to be a baseball player but nobody thinks I can do it accept my family and my friend. What should I do? – punker11
You should prove them wrong! First of all, you’re allowed to have whatever goals and dreams you choose. Second, who knows? With enough hard work and practice, maybe you WILL become a ball player when you grow up. I think you should practice, practice, practice and hold on to your dreams. If people are picking on you or trying to bring you down, just don’t talk to them about the things you want to do when you grow up.

How do I handle my best friend going to a different school – taryn901
Just because your BFF is going to be in a different school than you doesn’t mean your friendship needs to end. While you make friends and hang out with people in your school and she does the same in her school, make sure the two of you agree to spend some time together every week or month (whatever works best for you). Also, fill her in about the things going on in your life on a regular basis by phone or e-mail, and ask her lots of questions about her school and the friends she has there. You can also include her in activities that involve your school friends, and let her know you’d definitely love to meet the friends she makes at her school.
If your friend says something mean about you, would u still be their friend? – babylaboo1998
Forgiveness is a wonderful thing. If you can find it in your heart to forgive your friend for what he or she said, that makes you the bigger (and better) person in the situation. If you can’t forgive your friend, then you have to let him or her go and move on. It’s totally normal to grow out of old friendships and to let go of people who don’t bring happiness into your life. I guess the thing you need to do is think about whether or not you can forgive your friend and whether or not you want your friendship to end over this one thing.
