Help with anxiety & posting videos

Hi Tiffany. I'm a really shy person I kinda have social anxiety to you could say. And i really want to do YouTube videos but im afraid people in school might find out because it has happened a few times and im really scared. What do I do?

Anny

Jenna, I can see how you are conflicted and it is hard because people can be very rude. If you know what you love, go for it and do that. There are always gonna be haters and people that will make fun of you, I get it too! But you can't let them stand in the way of your dreams and what you love. If you want to post videos be proud and confident and show them that you are happy with what your doing. It can be scary, especially starting out, but if you remember WHY you want to make videos and focus on the POSITIVE comments and views that should matter more. And above anything else, do it for YOU, and forget everyone else. Side-note: if you're too scared to post videos maybe you find a way to be on the other side, to help film or create videos with others. :) Good luck!

Forgetting and Moving On

Hey, this is not something so serious, as it has not gotten seriously out of hand, but... yet it still bugs me from day to day. To sum it up, I became close to this girl in school, & soon we became "best friends," however, what I didn't know is that she had been spreading rumours, getting others to dislike me. Once I was put down to the bottom, she literally abandoned me, leaving me (in replacement for a girl of whom she claimed "hated me") & we just fell apart. Now that I think of it, I'm glad that she pulled away from me, as this made me realize everything that was going on & allowed me to see things clearly. I'm now able to stand on my two feet again, but she's not completely out of my mind. Like, whenever I'm at my lowest she'd it into my face, but really slyly, if that makes sense? I'm not sure how to put it into words, but I just can't find a way to just forget everything & move on when she's in all of my classes & I sit next to her in some of them. This problem's quite pathetic, but I really just wanna find a way of moving on? Love ya x <3

I'm sorry to hear that someone would treat you that way. I haven't been in that situation, but I have had to deal with haters. It is hard to understand. The hurt will probably never go completely away when you think about this situation or see this girl, but I feel like you are doing a good job moving on. Stepping back and seeing the relationship for what it really was, and accepting it is a mature thing to do. Moving forward, you surround yourself with friends that are positive and inspiring and that you feel you can trust. Friendships can make or break a person and real friends help you become the best person you can be. If you are happy, you are probably hanging out with the right group of friends. I think it is meant for us to never entirely forget a situation because we learn and grow from our trials and remembering helps us make good decisions moving forward. Stay strong. <3

How I ca Have more friends

Hi Tiffany,in my school the people is so rude ,except my best friend.Sometimes I fell alone.What I can do please answer

Anny

I think it's normal to feel alone sometimes. Kids at school can be very rude. Focus your time and attention on your best friend, and other people that you trust and can count on. I think a good way to have more friends is to just be kind and nice to everyone. Also reaching out or stepping out of your comfort zone to get to know someone can be scary but its a good way to find friends that are worth having!
