    I’m so pathetic. My problems are smaller than others and they don’t complain. I’m a whiny pathetic insane liar.

      Hey, I’m not necessarily sure what your problems are, but let me tell you this. No problems are bigger than anyone else’s. Problems are problems. There’s no shame in crying, venting, or when you need it, venting. Tell people when you need help. I’m guilty of doing the same exact thing so don’t think you’re alone. I usually hide my feelings, because it feels better to help other’s with theirs. Please don’t walk down my path, it gets really rough. You aren’t whiny, pathetic, or insane for getting help. If you need recommendations, maybe try laying down, closing your eyes, and listening to music. It helps.

      I love our strange son. <3

      There is no shame in needing help sometimes. You have the right to ask for it.
      Your problems matter to us, no matter how small. If they bother you, that means they matter, and good friends will see that and help you.
      You can’t help how you feel, and you aren’t whiny, pathetic, or insane for needing help. We all need it sometimes.
      I hope you get through whatever you’re going through. <3

      The Hug Page is for anyone who is struggling, or whoever feels like they need help. It’s okay to come no matter what. <3 You're not pathetic for wanting help – if your problems bother you, then it's good to seek advice! We don't hold it against you. 🙂 I hope you get past what's bothering you. *Hugs* <3

    • March 27, 2020 at 10:51 pm

      Even if your problems are smaller, that doesn’t mean you don’t need help with them! Just because you speak out about them, doesn’t make you weak!

      You always have a place to vent here, you are not whiny or weak, you have as much right to ask for help as anyone else. 🙂

      No problem is too “small” for the Hug Page. <3 No matter what, you can always post here, and BlogClan will be there for you. You are not whiny, or pathetic, or insane, or liar. You can always talk about your problems here. We love you! I hope you feel better. <3 *hugs* <3 <3 <3

      You are not whiny or pathetic or insane or a liar. It’s okay if you have problems and you don’t need to pretend you’re okay if you are sad. You are loved.

    So my mom got a call from my school last night so now she knows about the whole depression thing, but we’re working on getting better so that’s good

    • March 27, 2020 at 9:49 pm

      It’s good to hear that you’re working on getting onto a road of recovery <3

    If you are insanely bored or need comfort do this…

    Grab a bag, drawstring, backpack, or a shopping bag
    Put in a stress ball
    Put in something to listen to like a radio
    Put in drawing items
    Single player game (I like scrabble flash)
    Maybe a favorite book, pillow, blanket, or stuffie
    Craft kits
    Maybe puzzles or a hobby like sewing or playing the kazoo

    I own a book company

        – Two stress balls

        – Coloured pencils
        – Playing cards (for playing solataire by myself)
        – My favourite book (Tailchaser’s Song) and Worry Eater stuffed soft plush toy (Bonus: It can eat my worries!)
        – Two jigsaw puzzles
        – A dot-to-dot book or magazine

        Thanks! 🙂

    Does an A- count as an A? I got my report card back today; I got all A’s and one A-. My grandma always asks me whenever she calls if I got all A’s; I want to tell her I did so I will continue to be one of her favorites, but I don’t want to lie. So do A-‘s count as A’s?


    • Emberblaze (Emb)

      I would say so that it does count. However, go with what you think it is if you think that you did your best in that course, that’s what matters. Personally, if it isn’t a very important course I would be honest. It’s up to you!

      I would say it absolutely counts as an A 🙂

      March 28, 2020 at 2:07 am

      Yep! A- minus is a GREAT mark!

      Call me Quiet.... or Batman

    • Swiftnose
      March 28, 2020 at 2:49 am

      It does, but why does your grandma care so much about your marks? She should like you for you! Not a piece of paper! Still, it absolutely counts as an A!

    • falling feather
      March 28, 2020 at 5:18 am

      I would love to say it counts as an A as well. It really justs depends on the class. Also, you know your grandma. If she would like you more if you’re honest.
      If I were you I would say I got an A-, but only because I feel bad for everything (ex. I feel super guilty if I leave one sequin the opposite color on my sister’s chameleon pillow).
      Whatever you do I’m sure your grandma will still consider you one of her favorites.
      You got this!

    • Fallenshadows
      March 28, 2020 at 12:59 pm

      Yeah, an A- definitely counts as an A! 🙂

      geese ftw

    • Snowbreeze
      March 28, 2020 at 2:49 pm

      Yes, I’d say it does! But I’d say that your grandma would love you no matter what happened. 🙂

      I would say yes. But wait: You’re grades should not determine of whether or not she likes you—that’s just wrong. I’d bet anything your grandma would still love you whether or not you got all Fs. Don’t worry <33

      But I would say it counts :))

    I feel so hopeless and alone right now.

    Right now I’m crying while I listen to Someone you loved.

    It’s not like heaving sobs, I’m lying in bed with tears streaming down my face.

    I feel like there’s nobody I can confide in.

    My parents are pressuring my to do well in my classes but I’m not as smart as they want me to be.

    I just can’t do this anymore.

    I can’t please everyone, and the stress of trying to is tearing me apart.

    I don’t really feel anything anymore, just empty.

    The person who I thought was my best friend abandon me and accused me of being fake depressed.

    I just can’t do this anymore.

    idk man

      You don’t have to please everyone (it’s impossible)! It is a waste of energy trying to please everyone. Getting all As/good grades should not really be a goal, your goal should be trying your hardest. It always helps to ask questions. Most people want the best for everyone, you can always talk to your parents about stress. I believe in you! You can do this and I’m sure everyone here wants the best for you!
      You got this!

      March 29, 2020 at 9:16 pm

      *hugs* I’m so sorry you’re going through this 🙁
      Maybe you should try telling your parents how you feel.
      You don’t need to please everyone. People should love you for who you are, because who you are is always good enough.

      Oh Emby. <3 <3333 You can always confide in us. But I bet your parents have no idea you're going through this. I would try confiding in them . *hugs*

    I don’t intend to come out to my family for five or six or maybe seven years.

    But I almost want to. I’m so tired of pretending I’m straight when I’m not. So tired of living a lie. Pretending I’m not romantically attracted to males AND females.
    I’m tired of living this lie, but I don’t want to come out.
    Is there anyway I could subtly hint I’m bisexual?
