Im in high School and every time i get something wrong everyone starts making a big deal out of it then when they start saying things that I'm dumb and that they are smarter than me so when i ignore them i hear voices in my head telling me I'm thick and a looser and I'm stupid and I always feel that people are talking about me behind my back that they actually hate me. I'm too scared to tell my mum and dad about this and im not sure what to do now.

    Honestly, try speak to someone about it, and let the teacher know whats happening. Sometimes when things play over in our heads it's hard to shake off. Nobody's perfect and we all make mistakes and get things wrong sometimes, the main thing is you're answering, who cares if its wrong? That just means you're learning! When we hear things so often we start to believe them, but it's all just lies! Please don't listen to them, I'm sure if you speak to your parents then can assure you it's not true, and they can help you :)

    also, welcome to the boards! :wave:

    Hi,

    I'm 14, so also in high school. I know exactly how you feel. Honestly, you should try to talk to someone about it. That person could be anyone that you trust - like a teacher or school assistant. Any adult you trust.

    High school is hard work.

    P.S. As bubbles said, welcome to the boards, it's great to have you here!

    Thank you both! I'll try and talk to my head of year to move classes so I'm not with the ones that pick on me 😁

    Absolutely do that, you shouldn't have to put up with that crap at the place where you spend a high percentage of your time! Hope they sort it out.
