Dear Carol

I don't measure up to the preppy girls


 
These girls in my school are really preppy and live in really cool big houses and wear all new clothes. They are nice to me, but sometimes I think they are laughing at me behind my back.

 

Dear Not As Fortunate,

It can be hard when other girls seem to have bigger houses or newer clothes than you. But no matter how much you have, there is always someone out there who has more. So rather than dwell on your comparisons and what others have, you’re better off looking at what you do have. Do you have a loving family? Are you rich in friends? What are your special talents? You say you are not as fortunate, but money is not the only measurement. And I doubt these girls are laughing at you anymore than you would laugh at a girl whose home is smaller than yours.
