Dear M Girl,
I'm starting high school soon and I'm really scared! I'm going to a school nobody I know is going to. Luckily there was a summer bridge thing and I got to meet two awesome friends there. I'm still really scared because I don't wanna lose touch with my friends from middle school like I did from elementary school. Should I try to change who I am so people will like me? I'm the shy quiet girl in the back of the class who nobody really knows. I don't know what to do! Please help!
It's totally normal to be nervous about high school, especially if it's a new school! You can still be BFFs with people who don't go to your school! If you make the effort to see your middle school friends on the weekends, they'll make the effort to see you too! Don't feel like you have to change who you are to fit in with people from school, I'm sure you'll find friends who like you for being YOU (maybe those two friends you met over the summer?)! Good luck and let me know how your first day goes!
