SELFISH ?

Selfish ?

Help I have this problem again and again.....! So today i went in a church with my family and...the church is not really my thing..... But my parents really wanted to go there and I really tried not to annoy them because that already happened yesterday  so I tried to ask really nice "wen are you guys ready to go" not because i wanted to annoy them just because the church is not my thing  and I thought everything was ok because no one told me to stop. So then i sat down pretty much everywhere war you could possibly sit down because I am still very tired (I have a jetlagge )   and then we finally got out of the church and I said "are we going to the car now?" And my Vater said "no I want to go around the church" so we did and then I got annoyed. Then I sat down and my mom secretly took a picture of me and then went on. a minute or two later I catch-up and she showed me the picture and said"do you notice waht bad energy your creating ? You wer annoying from the moment we got out of the car ! We all know that you have a headacae (witch a did have) and your tired but still you don't have to annoy us. I didn't like sitting by a playground for hours wenn you and your friends used to play but I didn't annoy you!"    And she is right but I really tried to not be annoying but I justed can't get it right..... So waht do you guys think du you have any advice ? .......  :(

  • Wait I just realized that my post up there sounds like I always go to church (witch I don't and I also don't have to) we were just looking at a church because we are in a different country just to say that :) by the it's totally ok if you like the church ! I didn't want to blame anyone
  • Thanks for the advice
  • My advice is tell her you don't like church my family gives me the choice what I believe and I think you should too have the choice whether to go or not and it is not selfish it is fine to not like something. Hope this helps

  • I think that since you were jet-lagged, had a headache, asked to leave after church, which you made clear is not your thing, you shouldn't be blamed. Try sitting your mom down and calmly explaining why you didn't feel great there and how her comment hurt you. Try to stay calm and collected, and maybe she'll understand.

Too Much To Do

“Yesterday I felt overwhelmed because I had more to do than I was used to (Lots of homework, after school activities and dinner). Do you have any tips for girls to feel less overwhelmed when they have a lot to do?”  - Anonymous Feeling overwhelmed by long to-do lists is a very common experience, especially as we get older and start taking on more responsibilities and commitments, have more time-consuming homework, etc.—so you are far from alone in this. (It’s certainly something I’ve had to…

Not a People Person

"Okay i am going to very very clear...I need advice from someone older than me. I am not very much a people person like I don't talk much around other people how would you say I deal with this?" - Anonymous Hi! I’m not very much of a “people person” myself, and am generally very shy and quiet in social settings, so I definitely understand this. As I know firsthand, it can be hard being less socially inclined than those around us… but I’m actually going to start by suggesting that, contrary to…

Fear of Growing Up

“Dear S2S Mentors, I am afraid of growing up. I have been my whole life, and... I just don't want to grow up. Do you have any advice or reassurance? Thank you.” - Solene   Solene, Good gracious, but I relate to this so deeply. Growing up has been a prospect that’s been rather frightening to me for some years—and (speaking as someone who recently became a legal adult last year) it’s also been very relevant for me of late. That said, the good news (again speaking as someone who recently became a…

Getting Work Done

“I’m in the first year of high school this year and I’ve found I’m really really bad at getting work done like I am not good at it at all. Last year in middle school I didn’t care as much about getting work done because in the long run as long as I was passing my class it wasn’t a big deal. This year it matters more what grades I get and so far I’m getting pretty average grades but they aren’t as good as I’m hoping for. A problem about this is I know I can do better but I just procrastinate and…
