There can always be external factors beyond our control, trust me, this is something I know full well. I actually failed year 12 due to my mum being ill and the extra responsilbilty I needed to absord,let alone the fact that I changed schools for such a crucial year. Everyone thought I should have been afforded a compensatory pass, but this did not occur, so I started to do it over again, oh by the way, I had basically been an A/B student up until year 12. The call come in the early part of my repeat for a uni place, I took it and now I have a Uni degree without HSC, or VCE as it is called now. I am glad your mum is there for you, she sounds like she has your best interests at heart, hold on to that love, it is precious.
    This brought tears to my eyes. I am saving it. Thank you so much BT. Thank you so much.

    Hi DGP

    You have the best ups and downs... I guess that's normal for your age and year 12 so try to forgive yourself. One reason I quit doing English Literature was the marking was so subjective. If you happened to disagree or annoy the teacher - you could look forward to all bad grades. The Maths teacher could hate you but if you got the answer right she still had to give you the marks.

    You might want to write out what you wrote in here about doing pretty good considering and pin it somewhere you will see it often - to remind yourself. And I'm glad you and your mum sorted it. Otherwise I would have suggested writing her an apology/I love you letter.

    People who continually attack without any provocation or based on stuff that happened ages ago and which has already been apologised for - only make themselves look bad.

    Makes my problems look insignificant though.

    I've just noticed that old scissor mouth has cut the plug off my shredder.

    Thank you for this post Hyacinth. I am in the process of writing a positive letter to myself that will be clipped inside each of my study books for year 12. My mum has written me one too that I plan to keep with me at all times.

    Also, the thing that's making me so distressed is I don't know why this user dislikes me so much. I actually haven't done anything (that I'm aware of) to her. She's a valued and respected member of this community and although I've had to report some not so nice comments, I still want this to have an happy ending for all involved. I guess I'm naive, the world doesn't work that way.

    Try to remember to only acknowledge the behaviour/posts you want to encourage... stick with that. Ignore the crap stuff. And don't try to suck up. Works for people as well as dogs. What she's doing won't help her remain a "valued and respected" member if she ever was.

    But she's part of the variety of life and what I usually describe as "charcter building" in the lines of "what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger" and I seriously doubt she will kill you.

    There will occasionally be people who act in a way that makes no sense to you and usually has nothing to do with what you've done. They've got their own problems and they (like you with your mum) may not always direct their frustration or anger where it belongs. I think in AF's case - she's attacking you for something that happened way back - and even if it wasn't directly affecting her, if affected her friend(s) she may feel the need to do this to support them. I suspect if I felt the same way, I might do something similar - at least I'd steer clear of someone I thought attacked or abused one of my friends.

    Thanks for the advice Hyacinth. I wasn't trying to suck up, I was merely being honest in my observations. I'll try to rise above it and hopefully it will stop. Thanks hun. You've made me understand things much better.
