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.

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. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

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.

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.

opinions?

okay so this probably isn't a big deal but my mom is making me go to church 4 times a week instead of 2 (we're jehovah's witnesses and stuff) and she's making me go to Spanish and English but she knows i fucking HATE going and thinks if she takes me to the english "version" of the church or whatever you wanna call it, i'll make some progress or whatever. thing is, i've never liked going and i dont plan on staying in that religion EVER since i wanna go to college and become a singer and all that good stuff. and i can't just tell her straight out that i dont wanna go anymore because she'll kick me out of the house. so i was wondering if there is a way i can get out of going to church altogether or if i would just have to deal with it until im 18. i don't think trying to reason with her would work. anyways, yeah i need opinions on this.

RE: opinions?

You could fake an illness from time to time
Maybe distract yourself with things that entertain you while youre there

''these are suppose to be the best years of your life''

Church isn't like school, so it won't impact your future if you just don't do work at all. What if you told your mom you didn't want to be religious?

well would you look at the time its time to gay

Purity is to Believe only that which deserves it.
Wisdom is to follow only the Opinion which makes the best use of evidence.
Excellence is to be mindful of all these things in Living.
