People make fun of me sometimes because I try to do well in school. I want to succeed in life and buy nice things for my parents when I’m older. I’m only trying to make my life better. What can I do when I get teased about making good grades?
It is a great that you choose to do well in school. Hard work pays off in the end! I think the best thing you can do when being teased about your grades is to ignore the comments. You know your reasons for doing well and you do not have to explain yourself to anyone. Keep up the good work at school and soon enough you will accomplish your goal of making your life better.
I have a friend who puts me down in front of other people. In private, she is like a best friend. I am not sure how to deal with, it but it makes me depressed. What should I do? What would you do if you were me?
There is a saying, “With friends like that, who needs enemies?” I would definitely stop talking and hanging out with her. A friend should treat you the same everywhere in public and in private. If the situation is making you depressed, then perhaps you should talk to your friend. You can confront her and ask her why she treats you different in front of others. If the situation does not get any better, find new friends who will appreciate you and who will treat you the way you deserve to be treated.
