Really down...

Postby PurePurple » Sat Mar 15, 2008 11:13 pm

Hi all, I just need some reassurance or cheering up please.

My friends just seem to be arguing with each other and it's like they're both talking into my ear, and i'm stuck in the middle, because i'm forced to say 2 different things in order to help them both, Most of our group of about 10 seems to be really unhappy..

I'm pressured with coursework deadlines, and I fear i'm not going to pass my GCSE's :(

Arghh! So frustrating.

Oh I'm sorry to hear you're going through a rough time. Maybe you can try telling them gently that you don't want to get involved in their arguments.

Everyone feels the pressure when the GSCE's are coming nearer. Just remember that all the pressure will be gone when it's all over.

Hope things gets better for you. :)

Take Care.

If they're arguing against eachother you could turn that to an advantage to actually solve the whole dispute if they're all coming to you. You can orientate your advice so that it works out well for all and actually solves things rather than listening to them moan about eachother constantly. Maybe even get them all together to talk things through. I know you and your friends are young but sitting down and talking problems through shows maturity and character.

As for your GCSE's, just get revising and focus your energy on that. You will pass but you have to put the effort in (which I am sure you are doing already)

Okay, now I know how it really feels like. This just happened to me today. I'm not really sure what to do but I'm trying to use this as an advantage to solve it. I'm not sure if it's working, but I'm still trying.

Hope you feel better now. :)

Thankyou for that advice C_F, Me being me, I didn't think to turn the advice round so they could make-up lol.
