Middle school for most students is the period when students change from being kids to being adults. This is the time when their body changes physically and people around them start communicating with them in a different way. If middle school students don’t have the right knowledge about their situation and they don’t have readiness to deal with it, this period can be a period of confusion.
There are many ways to deal with relationship situations, which are:
- Speak to someone who can understand what you feel: speaking about what you feel to someone who can understand your feelings is a good way to support yourself having better relationships in middle school. You should do this on a regular basis which will make you familiar with your relationship problems to come out with solutions. Those who don’t speak about what they feel by hiding their feelings have more relationship problems than those who talk about their feelings, especially in the middle school period.
- Join a group that can understand you: a group can be a Facebook group that has members who have similar problems to you that can listen to you and feel what you are feeling. So that you feel that you are not alone, someone in the group may give you suggestions for your problems so that you try them in your life and return with the results. This will more likely be a good support for relationships problems.
- Ask for help to take new actions than your old ones: taking new actions in different situations is the ultimate goal that will help you with your relations. You don’t need to focus on changing your thoughts, how you feel and what your peers do but to focus on taking new actions in different situations and you can do so by asking for help from others about how you can take actions in different situations. This can take time and outer circumstances won’t change overnight. A rule of thumb is to ask for help on what actions you should take in different situations so that you can live a better middle school life. This is when you should take suggestions from people around you so that you can live a better life.
Building healthy relationships in middle school can come gradually and all what you have to focus on is to take actions built on someone who is successful in his relations.
