I'm 16 and a junior in high school this year. Whenever I walk through the front doors in the morning, I feel like I'm going to have a nervous breakdown. Sometimes it's feeling uncomfortable about which clothes I'm wearing, or what people think of me. I don't know what to do about it, I rarely feel comfortable in school. Most of the time, I'll get such bad anxiety, I'll get really hot and start to sweat.
Seeing as you're wise, and been through school yourself, I was hoping to get some advice from you before the new school year starts in a week.
Please help! Any advice would be so appreciated!
Thanks so much!
Dear Nervous Nelly,
Why choose such a name!! It makes me think that you don't like what you are wearing or what you do to your hair or just not satisfied with yourself. So, take stock of your self. Do your clothes fit right? Is your hair brushed so that it frames your face and smile? If you are overweight change your diet so that you get into shape.
I know that girls like to look their best and will do the RIGHT THING. Say a cheery HELLO to all your friends, ask if they had a nice summer. Be positive in every way and every one will respond in a positive way and think, Great Kid.
Enjoy the New Year,
