I am an English learner. She Her Hers. Recently, I'm feeling very alone and miserable at school. I came to the US last year from Japan because of my dad's job, and I'm a freshman in high school. Since I came here, I feel like I'm not accepted by anybody. Yes, there are people who are very nice to me and care about me (I am very grateful for them!), but in some classes, I have nobody I can talk to. I wasn't that shy in Japan, but now, I'm so shy. I've tried many times to be brave. But I get so scared of making mistakes every time. You know, teenagers are not as kind as adults. They are so desperate to be cool, and they probably don't wanna waste their time speaking with this strange Japanese-Australian girl!
And... I know I'm not good enough. Maybe I'm just a selfish girl who needs help and is not trying enough... idk, but I'm just tired of high school, already. I don't know how to be brave. I got used to being invisible
Is there someone who feels the same way or used to feel the same way but got over it? I want to know how to be brave. Sorry for my poor English.

  • I'm sorry you are having such a hard time assimilating. It will get better. High school is not forever. And your English is actually pretty good. Take a chance and talk with someone in class. Are there any clubs or sports you can participate in at school? That would be a great way to meet some others. Also, you are good enough .. the worst thing we can do is put ourselves down. Keep on trying and continue to be brave.
