Dear Caroline,

Please do not think of taking your life!

For some reason, people who come to the U.S.A. from other countries always seem to get teased! It has happened throughout our history, to the Irish and Polish a long time ago for example.

It is a bad thing, but just remember it is not your problem! Those mean, ignorant people who tease are the ones with a problem.

At age 13, you have a long and wonderful life in front of you, and please do not think of ending your precious life. You come from a country of wonderful and beautiful people. If you live in a large city perhaps there is a cultural center for Vietnam where you can go to learn to feel proud about your heritage. Do not let anyone take that away from you.

You no longer feel the frequent grating of your inner feelings dragging you down just because people are teasing you. There is nothing in this world that we cannot conquer with the assistance of Jesus Christ. Committing suicide will only tend to let down your friends, family and colleagues as they will never see you again and they need you most. Suicide is never a last option and if you look at it that way then you will seem to be very weak be strong.

nooo!!!!
i am asian 2, but i would never think of suicide!
u can tell someone, ik that sounds wimpy and like tattling, but thats racism, its against the law!!!
bullying, 2!!!
what u need 2 do is try to ignore them 4 a while, they might begin 2 lose interest. if they dont get a response from u, they might lose interest. if they dont lose interest, then u r only telling them ur ok with it.
go c ur schools guidance counselor, and try 2 get support from family and friends.

ps im 13. how old r u?

oh...well if u need advice on if a loved 1 passes away, best advice i can give u is what i always told myself after my grandma died.
if that loved one were still there with you, would they want you to be sad? they'd want you to be happy, to go on with life, but that doesnt mean you should forget them.
good luck becoming a doctor! (;

nevermind about these kids dont listen to them and do not commit suicide because im sure you're family and friends wouldn't want you to take your own life :)

maximize your happiness carolinepham , try activities that you have never tried before
Allow yourself to be carefree, even if its only a few minutes a day,
Reveal your true self to others who are willing to listen to you not the ones who are bullying you as they could be going through the same thing,
Inner peace is what matters
Just be yourself,
Understand why you are feeling the way you are feeling now, that can definitely help
stay positive, no matter how hard it may be,
Never think that you are different because others look you down upon you
And think of yourself as the luckiest person on earth, because you are...

Never mind those kids. Maybe their parents did not teach them manners. Manny Asians, including Vietnamese, became successful in America. Maybe your classmates just envy you as you may most likely better than them in school. Walk straight, feel good.

I was made fun of in high school for being the poor kid. Yes it hurts inside and suicide might seem like a good idea but it's not. Those idiots are not worth your life. What helped me was letting it roll off my back and eventually they will leave you alone as soon as they see it doesn't bother you anymore. I can promise you that after you graduate you'll never see them again. Don't let them get the best of you! I'm sure the people who are bullying you has issues of their own that they don't want to deal with so they're trying to make you sad so they can feel better. Please before you do anything major tell on them. All schools has a policy against bullying and you shouldn't have to tolerate it.
