  • Off to College With Acne | Birdyslade

    < Back Off to College With Acne Dear Birdy, I am just heading out to college and I'm really worried people will pick on me because I have the most terrible acne. At school, people got used to me, and, because i was a great athlete, i was accepted. However, my new college is really imposing and I wont be doing many sports there. Please help me, Birdy, I am so anxious. Dean Hey there, Dean First of all, take a deep breath! Starting college can be both exciting and nerve-wracking, especially when you're worried about how others might perceive you. I totally get it; acne can be tough to deal with, but remember, you're so much more than your skin. Your athleticism and talents made you accepted at school, and that's incredible! But let me tell you, college is a whole new ballgame. It's a chance to meet new people who will appreciate you for who you are, beyond just sports. Embrace your unique qualities and be confident in yourself. College is a melting pot of diverse individuals, and everyone has their insecurities. You won't be alone in feeling anxious about new experiences. Focus on what you're passionate about, whether it's academics, arts, music, or any other interests. College is a fantastic opportunity to explore different aspects of yourself. Don't let acne hold you back from making connections. True friends will see beyond your skin and appreciate the person you are inside. If you ever feel overwhelmed or need someone to talk to, don't hesitate to reach out to campus resources or join clubs and groups where you can find like-minded people. Remember, college is a fresh start and a chance to grow and embrace the wonderful person you are. I believe in you, and I know you'll do amazing things! Wishing you all the best on this exciting new journey, Birdy Previous Next

  • Adam likes Boys and Is Scared of Anyone Knowing | Birdyslade

    < Back Adam likes Boys and Is Scared of Anyone Knowing Dear Birdy, I hope you can help me navigate through a difficult situation that's been weighing heavily on my mind. My name is Adam, and I'm a high school jock and a top swimmer in the state. I've been dating my girlfriend, Jessica, for two years now. But deep inside, I've been carrying a secret that I haven't been able to share with anyone. You see, I've recently discovered that I'm gay. It's something I've struggled to accept and come to terms with. I never intended to hurt anyone, especially Jessica, who means a lot to me. However, my secret was inadvertently exposed when my best friend saw me with someone who I shared a connection with. Now, my best friend has distanced himself from me, stating that he can't continue our friendship. I'm terrified that he will reveal my secret to others, including Jessica. The thought of losing her and the potential fallout from being exposed fills me with anxiety and fear. Birdy, I don't know what to do or say to Jessica. I care about her deeply, but I can't deny my true self. I don't want to deceive her or lead her on, but I'm scared of the consequences and how it will affect our relationship. Thank you for providing a safe space to share my concerns and for any help you can offer. Sincerely, Adam Dear Adam Thank you for opening up and sharing your concerns with me. It takes courage to acknowledge and embrace your true self, especially when faced with the fear of potential consequences. I'm here to offer guidance and support during this challenging time. Firstly, it's important to remember that self-discovery and acceptance are personal journeys. While it may be difficult, try not to internalize your friend's distancing as a reflection of your worth. True friends should support and accept us for who we are. Give your friend some space, and in time, they may come to understand and accept your true identity. When it comes to Jessica, it's essential to be honest and open with her. Share your feelings and struggles, expressing your authentic self. Understand that this may be a difficult conversation for both of you, and she may need time to process the information. Be prepared for various reactions, as everyone navigates these situations differently. Remember to prioritize your own well-being and mental health throughout this process. Seek support from trusted individuals, such as LGBTQ+ support groups, friends, or family members who are accepting and understanding. They can provide valuable guidance and help you navigate this journey. Consider connecting with a counselor or therapist who specializes in LGBTQ+ issues. They can offer professional advice, coping strategies, and a safe space for you to explore your feelings. Above all, remember that embracing your true self is a beautiful and courageous act. It's okay to take the time you need to fully understand and accept yourself. Surround yourself with people who uplift and support you, and know that you deserve love and acceptance for who you are. Stay strong, Mark, and believe in your ability to navigate these challenges. You are not alone, and there is a vibrant community ready to embrace and support you for who you truly are. With care and support, Birdy Previous Next

  • Dad saw my porn now he does not trust me | Birdyslade

    < Back Dad saw my porn now he does not trust me Birdy, My dad stormed into my room and demanded to see what was on my computer. I'm 17 and love social media. I like some of the newer sites and occasionally I stumble across things that are pretty 'out there' and not really appropriate for Daddy's 'little southern doll' as he used to say. He took away my phone, my computer and grounded me. How should I get them back and restore my dad's trust in me? Mary-Anne, SC Hey Mary-Anne, I can understand how upsetting it must be to have your privacy invaded and feel like you've lost your freedom. Restoring your dad's trust will take time and effort, but it's definitely possible. Start by having an open and honest conversation with your dad. Apologize for any inappropriate content he might have come across and explain that you understand his concerns. Let him know that you value his trust and that you'll be more careful in the future about the sites you visit and the content you engage with. Show him that you are responsible and mature by following the rules he sets for your internet usage. Be consistent in demonstrating that you can be trusted with your phone and computer. In addition, try to find common ground with your dad on social media. Perhaps show him some of the positive aspects of social media that you enjoy, like staying connected with friends or finding interesting educational content. Be patient and understanding with your dad as he may need time to rebuild his trust in you. Continue to communicate openly with him, and be willing to make some compromises to regain his confidence. Lastly, use this experience as an opportunity to learn and grow. Be mindful of the content you engage with online and remember that everything you post or view can have consequences. Take care, Mary-Anne, and know that with effort and understanding, you can work towards rebuilding your dad's trust. Wishing you the best, Birdy Previous Next

  • 10 points to help anyone struggling with body image and appearance related issues | Birdyslade

    < Back 10 points to help anyone struggling with body image and appearance related issues Everyone has their own issues, and some of the following may be irrelevant. However, read on, some may help. Practice self-compassion: Be kind to yourself and treat yourself with the same kindness and understanding you would show to a friend. Remember that nobody is perfect, and it's okay to have flaws or imperfections. Focus on overall health, not just appearance: Shift your focus from achieving a certain look to prioritizing your overall well-being. Engage in activities that promote physical and mental health, such as exercising for enjoyment rather than solely for changing your appearance. Surround yourself with positive influences: Surround yourself with people who uplift and support you, rather than those who bring you down or perpetuate negative body image ideals. Build a network of friends and mentors who appreciate you for who you are beyond physical appearance. Challenge societal beauty standards: Recognize that beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, and forms. Challenge the narrow beauty standards perpetuated by the media and embrace diversity. Celebrate your unique qualities and encourage others to do the same. Limit exposure to triggering content: Take control of the media you consume by being mindful of how it affects your body image. Unfollow or mute accounts on social media that make you feel inadequate or trigger negative thoughts about your appearance. Practice positive self-talk: Replace self-criticism with self-affirmation. Focus on your strengths, talents, and achievements rather than fixating on perceived flaws. Remind yourself that your worth extends far beyond your physical appearance. Engage in activities that boost self-esteem: Participate in activities that make you feel confident and accomplished. Pursue hobbies, talents, and interests that allow you to express yourself and build self-esteem outside of physical appearance. Seek support: Reach out to a trusted friend, family member, or professional who can provide support and guidance. Talking about your concerns and emotions with someone you trust can be incredibly helpful in gaining perspective and finding coping strategies. Practice body-positive self-care: Focus on self-care activities that make you feel good from the inside out. Engage in activities that promote self-love and body acceptance, such as practicing mindfulness, taking relaxing baths, or engaging in creative outlets. Educate yourself about body diversity: Learn about body diversity and the harmful effects of unrealistic beauty standards. Understand that the images presented in the media often undergo heavy editing and do not represent the full range of beauty in real life. Remember, overcoming body image issues takes time and effort. Be patient with yourself and celebrate small victories along the way. Surround yourself with positivity and seek professional help if needed. You are worthy and deserving of love and acceptance, regardless of your appearance. Previous Next
