Into nonbeing, which is to say everything.
There are lots of boys from Darchei who live in Bayswater. If you have a car, the distance is really no big deal. There’s a small grocery store in between Bayswater and Far Rockaway. The larger ones are only a couple minutes further away by car.
Sorry pixelate, Marvel already brought him back to life! Some alien drug.
That’s very serious! You should probably tell Coulson about this.
All for only 20 dollars that you had in your pocket?
Aha rebyid! Thanks for the clarification! I knew something was off about my post…
I’ve never posted.
Lucky you that you think that. But I know lots of stories that are this bad and worse.
I agree keepitcoming. That part was a bit unrealistic. But other than that I thought it was amazingly accurate. Plus these are topics that frum people rarely speak about so I think it’s really great that she wrote it!
Wow! Just read this book, it’s probably the best Jewish novel I’ve ever read. Very accurate!!
You can try Otsar or Yeled V’Yalda.
It’s good that your friends are CPR certified.
Haha me too WIY!
I think all of our suggestions basically come down to the same thing- don’t let it all stay inside! It’s so unhealthy. However you think will be the most helpful, get it out. Go for therapy, find a teacher or friend, write a diary… Anything you do will unburden you partially. I personally think if you find a therapist who is a good match for you it can really help. But everybody is different and that may not be the best for some. Good luck! I’m sorry things are so tough 🙁
Lots of people might take this the wrong way so I’m sorry in advance. When people say they have no friends feel left out, etc it makes me really upset! At a certain point if the popular kids don’t want to be friends with you MOVE ON! Find your own group of friends! I don’t mean to be callous as I went through this in seventh grade and I remember how hard it was for me. But at a certain point you have to stop wallowing in self pity and make your own group of friends. And yes they might not be exactly the type you want to hang out with but your alternative is no one. I did that for a few years and now I have a great group of friends. But when I see other people complaining that we aren’t nice enough I just wish they’d make their own friends instead of focusing that they’re not friends with us.
I agree with popa. Unless you know for certain that you can trust someone you shouldn’t talk to them. But going for therapy could be really helpful for you, a therapist is in a muh better position to help you.
Technically a promise isn’t a bender unless it’s about a mitzvah. So there’s really no need to say bli neder.
Haleivi how would that help? Then the pre-mods have to read it. Maybe people should just be cognizant of what they’re writing.
I’m with you – 29January 26, 2014 5:33 pm at 5:33 pm in reply to: One Reason Why Public School Kids in NYC are Uneducated. #999800
How many days a year are your Jewish children off from school due to holidays? Surely more than 17.
What does that mean for everyone? Would they rather people got news from secular sources? Because that’s how it was before the jewish places started.
Don’t know where you live, but there’s also in Elzee in Lawrence.
Ourtorah- you obviously don’t know anyone who had an addiction. People who are addicted to something can not just stop. It doesn’t work like that. And when they do they have withdrawal for weeks. And the craving is always there.
Since when do only nonJews teach positive speech? And I will point out that the bullying and cursing that goes on in public schools cannot be compared with how Jewish children act. Instead of knocking a while group of people, maybe focus on how good they are in comparison to others.
Don’t forget that you didn’t for a few weeks! You should be proud of yourself for that.
And Walton, if you don’t go to seminary you can’t possibly want a Kollel boy. Only girls who went to seminary are enlightened enough to know that’s the only way to serve HaShem.
Twisted- why would the school turn you into a sociopath? Are the other 90% sociopaths?
That may be true Lost, but just because one thing worked for you it does not mean it will work for others.
So medication may have been the best choice for you. Other people prefer therapy. There is no way that is better above all others because every person is different.
Welcome back Shopping!
Ok I hear that. So I would modify my post to that depression is different in every person. No one case can tell you something universal about it. So just because medication helps one person it may not help another.
Lost1970- That depends on why you’re depressed. Postpartum depression, for example, is chemically/hormone based and therefore is treated with medication. Someone who is depressed because of life experiences may or may not medication. It all depends on the person.
Well said WIY!! +1
Sam2- do you know what the principles of it are?
Ok I get that no one believes in it! I just want to know what it is. And why intelligent people would be part of it.
Chai lifeline would have ways for them to contact other parents for support.
Ive seen cancer dolls- with a bandana and a chemo port, maybe try to find one for her. It would be really great for her to play pretend doctor!
I know a little girl with cancer who had a peace sticker tattoo on top of her head. I thought it was such a nice way of embracing the fact that she has cancer and no hair.
Ask around, I’m sure some of your friends may have it. I have a few of her songs, a friend of mine sent it to me. But that doesn’t help you very much cuz I have no way to send them to you.
Thanks whoever fixed it!
It isn’t illegal to sell a book like that? It should be!January 3, 2014 5:54 am at 5:54 am in reply to: How to ask a rebellious teen to do something without getting resistance #997113
Trust, it also sounds sort of dictatorship and a teenager who craves independence hates that.
And you went to school years ago.January 2, 2014 12:59 am at 12:59 am in reply to: How to ask a rebellious teen to do something without getting resistance #997111
Let me teach you a rule about teenagers. If they want to do something and you forbid them it’ll make them much more likely to do it. Don’t tell your kid you don’t let them smoke. And don’t say this is my house so while you’re here you follow my rules. That makes everything much worse. You can let them know that you disapprove, how dangerous it is, how even though now it seems cool it’s not worth it in the long run. And then let it go! Because the more you push your rules on them, the further you will alienate them.
Do you live in New York? What age are you looking for? Ohel bais Ezra has groups in 5towns and Brooklyn for ages 7-16. I honk HASC has groups in Williamsburg and Boro Park for about the same ages. Many friendship circles have groups, usually for younger kids.December 27, 2013 6:32 pm at 6:32 pm in reply to: How to ask a rebellious teen to do something without getting resistance #997095
Well said Syag! Don’t tell your kids things that they can figure out on their own and you won’t have this problem. Teens want to be independent. If you’re constantly telling them what to do then of course they won’t listen.
Maybe they feel threatened by the people frummer than them because they feel like they’re being judged. And making fun is their way of trying to convince themselves that they don’t care.
Along your lines Syag! I’d follow all the criminals who were acquitted based on some stupid technicality or defense and freak them out. Make them think the ghosts of the people they hurt or their families are coming to haunt them.
I had a teacher in elementary school that was absolutely disgusting to us. She made up the craziest stories and would tell them to us all the time. She never actually tought us anything. And she was so mean to a few or us that she decided she hated. I probably cried nearly every day that year. I don’t think anyone in my class will every forget her.
If a school feels they need a student to leave the least they can do is help them find a better school for the child.
What about mock weddings? Those are fun.
