I keep getting in fights
I had a huge fight with this boy I know. Now this other boy is in a fight with me. My friends told the principal, and now we have to work things out. I’ve been there a couple times because of other fights.
Some things are worth fighting for, but life is easier when you don’t get in so many fights. If someone acts mean, it’s his problem, not yours. If someone acts like a jerk, walk on rather than saying something nasty back. Think about the kind of person you want to be. To end a fight, you can say “I’m sorry” or “I’m ready to get beyond this.” Once you get better at keeping the peace, you won’t get sent to the principal and get mixed up with kids looking for trouble. Is there someone you can talk to? What’s making you angry may not be other people, but something inside you that hurts.
We want to hear from you! Go here to submit questions to Carol about every sticky sitch life throws at you.
