Okay admit it. You barely survived Valentine's Day. Feeling scarred from Valentines Day and it's not from Cupid's Arrow? Well, here's some tips so it doesn't happen again.

Feeling scarred from Valentines Day and it's not from Cupid's Arrow?

Okay admit it. You (yea, that means you Frostygirl 7,) along with all the rest of us, barely survived Valentine's Day. I mean, it was fun in Kindergarten when you could make hearts and silly little poems. Roses are red, violets are blue... You remember. It was great then. Do you know why? Because you gave handmade cards and gifts to your moms or dads or teachers and they loved them. You were happy. Cool. It was cool because to you then, making the cards or rhymes was great.

Think about it, do you remember how many you got back then? Probably not. What happened? Well somewhere between kindergarten and middle school, how many valentine's cards you got and what you got started meaning how much of a hottie you really are. Get real. Does a piece of paper, a box of candy or flowers tell you if you are a hottie or a hootie? NO.

Back up off yourself. Blow off this past V-day as nothing more than what it is - a day for Hallmark and Pot Of Gold and all the other card and chocolate companies to make a quick buck. Next V-day - be prepared! Here are ten things that you can do to make your next Valentine's Day phat and fun.

  • Write your own cards and color them.
  • Volunteer to help someone in the neighborhood that day.
  • Look in the mirror and write down five things that you LOVE about yourself.
  • Buy your own chocolate kisses.
  • Ask your parents about their favorite Valentine's Day.
  • Rent a sappy movie, get a box of Kleenex and enjoy. Invite all your single friends too.
  • Put on your favorite CDs and dance.
  • Send flowers to yourself, and write from a secret admirer.
  • Tell someone that you love them
  • LOVE YOURSELF 24/7

1 I really liked this girl. I had known her for three years. She had been on my soccer team. She was really athletic and really cute. On Valentine's day I finally got the guts to give her some candy. When I did I found out she had a boyfriend. That was really, really, embarassing.

1 I was giving some cute lil' valentine and pillow that said "Forever Yours" on it. It was sooo cute. I knew he would love it. As soon as I gave it to him... he broke up with me! Talk about mad, sad and upset! Never give something to a guy like that when he wants to break up!

Are You Really Emotional?

  • Sometimes I get a little teary-eyed or angry.
  • Not really. I'm pretty chill.
  • I constantly feel like I'm on an emotional rollercoaster.
  • Are you kidding? I don't have time for emotions.

This is the problem... My friends that I hang out with in school keeps on calling me fat and stupid. They are my only friends so I will not betray them, but when they are in trouble, they makes me the scapegoat and blame me on everything. Everytime they drop something, they tell me to pick it up for them. Everytime when I cannot play with them due to health issues, they will tell me to trade for something, like I can't play on a day, they will ask me to help them buy drinks (with their money).

Maybe you could try working your way up to the conversation. I started out talking about how I was feeling online because it was practically impossible to talk about in real life, then I started talking about depression (in general, not that I thought I had it) to my friends - who I was feeling very distant from at the time, before I started being able to admit that I probably had it myself. Reaching out is one of the hardest parts but trust me, you will get there eventually. I found it hard myself because people tell people to reach for help but they never really talk about how to do it. It's usually just building the courage to say "I've been feeling depressed" even though it's not a comfortable thing to say. The thing is, there are many people out there who will be willing to help you that you wont trust. I got help when I admitted to my maths teacher about what was going on, and I definitely did not trust my maths teacher. But anxiety and depression is quite common and out there are going to be people who will understand and have been through similar experiences. You just have to find an adult who can get you help. Whether this be your parents, family member, a school counselor, or a teacher.  I hope this was helpful, and good luck.

last friday, i was home alone, my dad went to am AA meting and chiz, so i was alone for a couple og hours, i mean yeah i'm depressed, i cut, i have suicidal thoughts daily.......it's hard hurting inside..and just to see everyone pass you by like you're nothing, people judging you without knowing you. i also have social anxiety, and it really bothers me at school, so i try to walk fast in the halls, and i'm tense a lot. people criticize me once in a while.... ive been through some stuff, i've seen my mom abused infront of me thousand of times..........it's just hard...life. i'm scared to deal with it. so i made a noose, tried to attempt. long story short, my friend called the police, i got sent to the ER......my dad doesn't trust me alone for a mere 3 seconds, cause he thinks as soon as he turns his back i'll cut myself, or hang myself

So there's this guy in my class and he sits next to me. Correction he HAS to sit next to me, So my classroom as a table with 2 desks connected to make a huge desk but separated holders things to put our stuff in. So this guy is really the class clown of the class and he can be a jerk when he wants to be but sometimes can be a really nice guy. He likes to talk to me and he "Occasionally" Touches my hand or arm in a friendly way.. I think :3 but anyways he teases me ... A LOT but he sometimes insults me but when he sees my face not cracking into a smile. he instantly says sorry or didnt mean it like that kind of way and i smile. So does he like me? Or he just being a regular guy?  Ello and I thinks he likes you and feels your the close enough friend what he can joke around with. He doesnt want to offend you or upset you and that shows he cares about your feelings. Me advises is take your time and see how your friendship develops.  If it feeels natural to ask him does he like you then ask him and theres no rush :) Good luck :love
