Hang in there young lady. I remember grade school and high school how girls were so mean to me. I was shy and didn't know how to act around girls. I thought, how cruel life is. I always wondered if there was more to life than what I was going through. I didn't believe I would amount to anything. Then I started to take control of my own life and my thoughts. You do know you are in control of your own thoughts and feelings, right?
Everyone chooses to be happy or sad, calm or angry, inspired or depressed. Anyway, I started collecting quotations and words of inspiration. In time I became much more confident and people commented how amazing it was that I always had a smile on my face. I'm 36 now and have gone through many ups and down, and each situation just adds to my life experience and makes me a stronger person. As for the girls! My friends and I keep talking about those girls who were so popular in high school, how "untouchable" they were. Today, many of those "popular" girls are separated because they married abusers and alcoholics. Some of those girls I met later on and discovered they had a crush on me while in high school and often the conversation goes like "why didn't you tell me you had a crush on me, I liked you too".
If you're looking for a lad to take good care of you, don't look at parties and stuff like that. They are usually the ones who don't know how to be themselves and resort to drugs and alcohol to be able to let loose a little. Those types end up being unable to handle stress in their daily lives.
Don't get caught up in the competitive nature of the teens years and high school. Just be yourself and have fun. Be nice to everyone you meet and you will be amazed how many youth are just looking to be accepted and acnowledged as a somebody.
Hope this helps....here's one of my favorite quotations I collected...maybe it can help you too!
