Feeling down

Wed Sep 22, 2010 8:07 pm

I'm currently depressed at school right now, I didn't quite have the grades I expected and mostly I lone because my friends are in different classes. So getting picked on every here and there since its much easier to do so.
Worst off my favourite subject was art but my teacher was awful, she never notices me and only gives me critical comments afterwards when its too late, but really it's too vague anyway, like how I should try making dresses. :cry:
There are other problems there too but nothing out of the ordinary.
What I'm trying to say is I'm lonely and failing everything.
Feel like everyone hates me and I'm more of a walking disaster. Um sorry for ranting I was curious if anyone knows how to cope with not fitting in quite right and messing things up.

Ignore the little picky comments, pretty pathetic people if they're doing it just because you're alone in class. My art teacher ignored me by year 11 because I liked doing things my way, which I liked, but if it's bothering you perhaps you could ask her for critique mid-art?
As for walking disaster well I'm like that too, but nobody here hates you, dont forget that.

ignore your teachers picky comments, ask if you would prefer you get your ideas for improvement differently. does she know about your dyspraxia, and just what it is. although a lot of teachers may know the name, they may not know what it means.

one thing i found helped me cope was a good day diary, every day, write something that was good about the day, it can be as little as i got smiled at, or as big as saving the world. anything good, and dont limit nyourself to 1 thing. when you are stressed, read it.
