Dear Agatha,

How do you stay positive when so many things around you seem to be going wrong?

No matter where you are in life, there will be things that will go wrong. Life is far from perfect, and at some point you have to come to terms with that. You do what you can to help or fix the wrong and after that, if it is still lingering, you accept it. If you don’t, you end up feeling like this, defeated and worried, all of the time. After you come to terms with those things, you will feel positive and will want to apply this to other aspects of your life.

Dear Agatha,

What do you do when your stepdad is really hard to deal with and you don’t want to be disrespectful?

Even though sometimes we want so badly to have an attitude towards a parent we have to remain calm and listen. Trust me, it is better to just keep quiet because if you don’t, it could result in getting grounded or worse. So my advice is to not think much about it because you are better off just listening and going on about your day.

Dear Agatha,

There is a girl in my grade constantly talking bad about me behind my back. Everyone tells me to confront her but I don’t believe that’ll do anything at all. What should I do?

You’re right, it won’t help. The best thing to do is to be the bigger person and ignore the hate. It won’t do do any good to talk bad back. It’s more than likely that the haters will stop soon, so just stay strong!
