    SSScarry EEEEXPPeriennNnCCcEe: When I used to live in Boston, I was four years old and my costume was a cowgirl (and my baby sister was a cow!). I was trick-or-treating and I went to the neighbor's house next door. I rang the doorbell and the person who answered was wearing a scary mask! I screamed and ran away and started crying. It was so scary I still remember. My second story is of 2017. I was a unicorn and I was trick-or-treating. I came up to a house and there were two scarecrows out front. They looked so real that I decided to touch one of their hands. And when I did, the scarecrow grabbed my wrist - it WAS real! I screamed and ran!

(P.S. no offence to anyone who does put up those decorations, because, i mean, maybe there are kids out there who actually like getting scared?)

Drama vs. Empathy

There's a lot of stuff going on at my school right now - a lot of personal drama and just plain rudeness. Even if the frequent judgmental comments are not aimed at me (though they were last year), whenever it happens around me I start to feel a bit ill. I guess one could say I'm extremely empathetic when it comes to these things. I've talked about it with my parents and teachers but haven't completely revealed the full extent of it - I'm really nervous about standing up and I hate it. I've…

Dealing with Jealousy

“I've recently really been struggling with jealousy- typically having to do with my friends family lives, hobbies, or other friends. I understand how toxic it is to feel this way.

Feeling Like a Second Choice

“I feel like I am always the second choice for my friends at school. They always want to sit with other people or work with other people. They are not mean to me or anything and I think they do like me but I dont think they like me as much as they like anyone else. I feel like I am overreacting about this and I dont know what to do about it.” -Ellie Oof I know how you feel, Ellie :’( I’ve struggled with feeling like my friends’ second choice for years, it really wears down on you after awhile.…
