I am currently in 7th grade. There was a program in our school named PAL's, where we help children, peers, and special ed kids. Around 25 kids make it, and I made it to the interview. Yesterday I found out I did not make PAL's. I was devastated. I was balling when I called my mother. I wanted this more than anything, and I was so confident about making it. This ruined my year. I'm depressed and I don't know what to do. I'm never successful in life and this was truly something that I thought would be something I can accomplish. I feel like a failure; a nobody. If I made PAL's, everything would have been perfect. I don't know why this happened. It wasn't supposed to happen. Just please tell me any ways I can deal with this. I so REGRET thinking about this, but I wondered what would happen if I . Just please, what can I do to be happier in life. Nothing ever goes the way I want it to.

Hi Sunrise,

I am sorry that you didn't make PALS. I am sure that you are sad about it. But we have to learn to live with things the way that they go. As they say when life hands you lemons, make lemonaid. That is the way to get by. Things don't always go the way that you want them to in life, so you make the best of the situation. That is how I do it. So I hope that works for you.

How old are you? Are you thirteen? Because you do have to be thirteen to be on the forum. When you said you were in 7th grade, I had to wonder about your age.

You are so young to be so upset about things. You should be enjoying your youth. So try not to let things disappoint you. When something doesn't go the way you want, move on to something else. Keep trying. Talk to your school counselor about things. That often helps. They are good to talk to.

I hope that things get better for you. Keep posting and let us know how you are doing.

Hugs, Karen

Thank you so much for your reply; it meant a lot to me. And actually I'm 14, because I turned seven when I moved to America, and I started first grade.

Yes, I'm starting to realize that everything happens for a reason, and that everything will work out. God has a plan for me, and making PALs wasn't part of it.

I am happy that you realize that. Everything does happen for a reason, though you may not realize it at the time that it happens. Have faith in life. Things will turn around for you and you will be happy again.

Life is not easy at times. But the struggles build character in us. So it is all a learning process in the end. You as you get older you get wiser. Keep up the good work my friend. You will be happy. Take life one day at a time.

Hugs, Karen

Thank you so much for helping me. I am a lot happier now, and I'm just going to participate in lots of charity and special needs organizations. I even found a theme park that I can go to for special needs kids, and I am very excited to go there! (:
