my advice is stay true to yourself. stop trying to be the person other people want you to be, BE YOURSELF! nobody is perfect.
also, middle school is tough, everyone changes and grows up, your friends dump you. find friends that you know will stick to your side no matter what and always have your back. middle school is hard, but if you are confident, you can overcome ANYTHING!

I've learned to focus on your grades have some good friends join some clubs and be yourself and don't try to impress anybody.

my tip is be yourself and work your hardiest, don't try to act cool and forget to bring your homework. focus on the work your teacher is giving you. the information will be very valuable when you grow older.

My back-to-school lessons are: 1. Be you! No one can be you, like you. No one can do what you do the way you do it. While your at it, embrace your uniqueness.
2. The best way to deal with drama is to either walk away or talk it out.
3. Find what you love and do it. It doesn't matter what others think.
4. Popularity is overrated. It's better to have a few close friends than a lot of fake friends. If you have your great friends who have your back, you can conquer anything.
5. The only way to make friends is to be a friend. It couldn't hurt to just say hi. If you don't hit it off, that's okay. You try again with someone else who looks like they need a friend. If you hit it off, great! You've just made a new friend.
6. Last but not least, everything will work out. You just need to have a little faith.

My back-to-school lesson/tip: Always Be Yourself.
Throughout the years, I've realized that being yourself is one of the best pieces of advice anyone can give. No matter what, always go through life being you! Be you! Be unique! I guarantee you'll make some new friends this way. Honestly, don't try to be someone you're not. Don't be afraid to show the real you! Just be yourself. It's the best thing you can do ;)

It was really funny when I realized that all of the girls that are "popular" were constantly in fights, gossiping about each other, and obsessed with how they look! The girls we all think we want to be have more issues with themselves than we do!
