Dear Audrey

Hey Guys!
This column is where I will be answering some of the emails I get. If you have a question or need advice on something, just shoot me an email at or leave me a comment and I will get back to you! I will try and do at least one every week!

Dear Audrey,
I read your post on the meaning of life and it really struck home to me. Lately, I have been trying to live life to it's fullest. The more that I do this, the harder I realize that it is. Does this even make any sense? Anyways, I just wish that I could be of greater use to the world. How would I do that? Help Me!

Dear The Impact Girl,
I get this question a lot. How do I make myself noticed? How do I stand out in a crowd? How do I become of significance to the world? The answer is simple. Be Yourself. I know that this may sound a little cliche at first (man do I love that word!) but as I have thought about it more and more, I am beginning to realize that it is absolutely true. You just need to hold your head up high and stick to what you believe in and not be afraid to show the world what they're missing out on by socially rejecting you. Hope this helped!


Dear Audrey,
Being a teenager is so freaking hard! I sometimes feel like I can't be the person that everyone wants me to be. My teachers want me to be the perfect student. My parents want me to be the perfect child. My coach wants me to be the perfect athlete. My music instructor wants me to be the perfect prodigy. I hate being so perfect but you make it look so easy! How the heck do you do it? Sometimes I feel like my parent's just don't get what it's like. 
Help me!

Dear Clueless on Life,
I think that as being a teenager, you have to set limits on what you can and can't do. Remember that you can't satisfy everyone but it is important to make sure that you always satisfy yourself. You have no IDEA how much I relate to your letter. It seems like everyone wants me to be the perfect person that I am just not. I learned the hard way that you have to learn to say no to some people regardless of how much it may hurt.Remember that you are only in this stage of life for a little while and soon it will all be over. Good Luck!


Dear Audrey,
So there's this guy in one of my classes who I think likes me. The only problem is that I'm a freshman that looks like a junior and he's a senior that doesn't know that I'm a freshman. We talk over Facebook quite often and he's a great guy, bu I just don't like him like that. What do I do? Should I say something? If I do, what do I do without hurting his feelings? He also has some history with a friend of mine that ended badly. How do I keep her from finding out?

Please help my pretty little soul!!!!!

Dear Pamela, 
Oooooh, sticky situation. I have a friend who was literally in this exact same situation last semester. Guess what happened? The class ended, he moved on and got hurt by another girl, and she forgot about the whole thing. I would just give it some time to settle down. Remember, every single relationship, even if you don't want it to be a relationship, ends sooner or later in either breakup, or marriage.

Hope this helped Pamela!!!!

  1. Audrey,
    Great answer! But don't feel like "everyone want me to be the perfect person". I think the best way to please as many others as possible (without actually hurting yourself) is to just be the BEST YOU that you can be. :) I don't want you to be the perfect person, or even the most PERFECT version of you-that's impossible right now; none of us can be perfect yet. I want you to be ONLY the BEST that YOU can be right now in life. :) Best Friends Forever.
