I get really nervous at school sometimes. Like today in gym I was so nervous someone was going to make fun of me. Also, how do I know if I’m being socially appropriate? Yesterday, I was in a Mod. Lit class I ended up dropping. The teacher gave us like a 5 or 6 page pre-test. I got so nervous at how long it was, then on top of that, there was a girl there who had really wanted to be my friend, but is now ignoring me. I started crying and I almost didn’t even know why. Later in the hall, I saw my friend Charlie. I knew he saw me and I saw him. I could tell he cared, but I didn’t want him to think I was pathetic for crying, so I turned away. Then another day, there’s this nice football player in two of my classes. During break, I think he said “hi Julianne”, but I’m not sure because I was focused on walking to the bathroom. Was I being socially appropriate? I really don’t him to think I would ignore himI have a hearing loss and don’t always hear things. I see him a lot, but it’s kind of awkward. We don’t say “hi” and it’s like we just stare at each other, and if I pass him a paper, he says “thank you” but doesn’t make eye contact. Is there anything I can do? I’m tired of things being awkward between me and other people. The reason might be his best friend is in my class too and yesterday they kept looking at me and smiling. Maybe I had something on my face I didn’t know about?

Like I was thinking maybe his friend convinced him I had a crush on him. What do you girls think? I didn’t want to jump to the conclusion they were making fun of me just yet

I think you should stop worrying about what others think. I’m sorry I’m being blunt but it’s true! The only person who’s opinion matters is God’s! In the end it doesn’t matter what happened during this day, we will stand before God and what will matter is our heart and how we lived for him. In terms of nervousness just remember that our confidence should be in Christ! These two verses can help with confidence: For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. – 2 Timothy 1:7 & So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?” – Hebrews 13:6 Hope this helps 🙂
