Am I being too anxious?

Am I being too anxious? Topic: Life is all about problem solving
June 20, 2019 / By Selby
Question: I'm very worried about having to take [Pre] Calculus in 12th grade and I'm in 9th. I saw Calculus in the movie Stand And Deliver and I saw nothing but 2 long lines straight apart with only letters and possibly 2 numbers on those 2 lines. I don't know how to solve with all those damn letters. I have nightmares about calculus and all I see is the paper on a school desk. And I'm feeling scared worried and low because I'm not that good in math. My second worry is Geometry scares me because of measuring shapes of angles and trying to figure out the degree of the angle. My third is, I'm scared I might be single for the rest of my life because in my school i'm known as a weirdo. Because I mutter and stutter sometimes and my school is full of pretty good looking girls but I'm too scared to make a move. I saw a couple in the hallway on valentines day after school I saw them kissing each other and walking down the street I saw them holding hands. And most girls call me ugly but when you do that or mess with me I'll go into ****** mode. But I'm nearly to the point to saying YOU KNOW WHAT **** ROMANCE! I'm already saying I'm not destined to have a girl. So, My third worry is, My mom and uncle want me to go to college. I don't want to because I don't want to deal with Calculus, and Geometry again. I go to a Technical High School. So I think I'll just graduate and get my degree in plumbing. I might go to [Tech] College for a second plumbing degree.

You will learn the math in time, it is the teachers' job to explain and help you understand. When you get into the upper maths, it's no longer about 'math' but problem solving and following directions... like a recipe for cooking a dish, you follow the steps. Don't worry about being in a relationship at your age, just enjoy your youth and make good friends that will probably last a lifetime. Most people grow out of being socially awkward, and those that don't still manage to find love. Most people your age who are all kissing on each other in the hallways, end up screwing up their lives with an unplanned pregnancy. And they are more likely to have an ugly divorce because they have a lot more growing up to do on their own. You want to see where all that young "love" ends up? Watch 'Jerry Springer'... Last, If that's your photo, your not ugly... the people who say you are though, are ugly. Mean people aren't worth the carbon and oxygen they are made of. Pity them and walk away because you know they will make themselves unhappy and you don't want them dragging you down. Carpe' Diam. Good luck in your future endeavors. MSP

I'm like you when I first started high school. I think just being nice to people around you, offer people help would be a good start, you could practice saying things to yourself first, if you aren't comfortable. You could try to write down your feelings, to understand more about your situations.I know it's not easy, and sometimes people looks angry because they are tired, it's nothing personal. Be patient and try to know your friends better, you don't have to initiate a conversation if you don't feel like it. It's important to be a good listener as well. If you don't know the answer or don't have the assignment when teacher call on you just be honest by simply saying "Sorry, I don't know/ I don't have it) It's not your fault that you don't know the answer and you are showing honesty. Don't blame yourself if any of your friends changed or someone's not being nice to you, it has nothing to do with you. I wish you the best in high school and pray that you will find some good friends.

Ok so i seriously had the same problem as you. I was worried with the actual school part of learning and grades but more on the social part. I only have my closest friends and a few people i just say hi to in the hallway. I was so scared going into high school and having no one in my class or lunch. I always had at least one person i knew but it was still awkward. I found it easier if you could relate to the person, like having the same favorite tv show or listening to the same music. Its always good to have something in common so you could start off talking about that and then start talking about more things. You just have to be open to the idea and a tad outgoing and it was really hard for me cause im shy. I met a girl im really close with by asking her if she had the notes i missed then we talked about teachers and exchanged info on our classes and stuff and then just became friends. I think at first you should just be conscious of what you say and try to say the right things but when you get close just be yourself. Now i joined clubs but i always left them cause i got bored and nothing was interesting and im not at all interested in sports, but i still managed to make friends. My best friend today, i met them in science class and our first conversations was talking about red lobsters biscuits and how amazing they are lol. If you have any questions you can always email me!
