How can I be less impulsive and forgive myself? There seems to always be something wrong with me. And I don’t understand what God was thinking when He made me. My impulsity is the reason my neighbors hate me (I kept messaging him this summer when he didn’t respond the first time. I just really wanted to be his friend). I didn’t find my neighbor on Facebook until a couple months before his graduation. We had a nice conversation. We were going to take a walk to get to know each other better. I asked if I could come over. He said “Possibily!”. Then a few weeks later, I sent this big paragraph saying “My mom reminded me you said I could come over a while ago so maybe now you don’t want me too.” He was so nice and sweet to me at first, maybe even seemed to take me under his wing. Did my stupidity ruin a beautiful start of a friendship? But he hasn’t unfriended me yet or unfollowed me on Instagram or twitter. It’s also why not many kids in my youth group or school reach out to me. Why am I even here? I wish I could just start over as a freshman in high school. Any thoughts for me? Thank you!

Yo, take a breath girl! First of all, been there done that. High school is hard sometimes. Shoot, college is hard, too, and just life in general. People make mistakes, but that doesn’t mean the person is a mistake. You are not a mistake. Did you read that correctly?
You. Are. Not. A. Mistake.
When God made you He was more than likely thinking, “Hey, I’m gonna make a gorgeous daughter and grace My world with her presence.”
In regards to your neighbor, I’d step back a bit. Technology can be dangerous, if only because words tend to flow so much more easily from behind a screen than face to face. If you want to be his friend, that’s totally fine. Just start small. Maybe start with a small, “Hey, how have you been?” and work your way up from there. Just be careful of bombing his inbox.
I hope this helps! Good luck!

Thank you! I just wish I was more careful with that. I feel awful I was so impulsive, and it’s good to know since I make mistakes, doesn’t mean I’m a mistake
