I'm so tall I'm like the tallest girl in my year! I really want to be shorter ( also my crush is smaller than me) it's horrible and I feel like I've grown up because I'm taller than my mum and dad and I'm only thirteen

Are you worried about your height?

  • Yes - I think I'm too tall
  • Yes - I think I'm too short
  • Sometimes, but I'm not done growing yet
  • No - I think I'm just right!

A perfect friend according to me should always be there for you whenever you need him or her. But they should also guide you to the right path. They should understand you. They should be sweet, understanding, caring and funny. And yes, by caring and understanding I did mean a bff and not a boyfriend. My perfect friend posted on this thread right before me... her username is scarlet177.

I Feel like I should paste this here  Always remember this: Someone out there loves you. May be here online or on the other side of the world but they would care that you died. Now please put down that knife/blade or rope or gun or anything and think "do you want things to get better" or "do you want the chance of things getting better to be eliminated. Now let your scars fade and remember these words "I care"
