RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

I'm missing something in life

I do not know how to describe it, but the things that I'm doing right now
with myself it's rather well. Frustrating. I feel that I don't open up with myself sometimes, but I feel that I should. I don't think it just school that's contributing to my anger, I guess school is contributing to it, but I think it goes rather deeper, and It kind of torments me when there's no one to rather talk about these things. It goes back rather to 4th grade and 5th, was when I started getting depressed with myself at the age of 10 and 11. Me being diagnosed with ADD,Aspergers, and ODD was a blow to my self image and self esteem for myself. I felt rather estranged and alone for that time, because I was all of a sudden pulled out of elementary school and put into a middle school program with only 5 kids, because of me getting into getting violent on other kids. My aggression and hostility towards other kids probably grew out of just a sudden snap, and I was sent to multiple psychiatrists and evaluated as a result of that, and I wished during that whole time someone would understand how I felt.

RE: I'm missing something in life

Did you ever get into a fight where you or the other person really got hurt?

If you want to be a different fish, you've got to jump out of the school.

What do you mean by opening up with yourself? You're hiding your feelings from yourself?
