Dear Aunty Lisa,

I’m 13 years old. I know I’m young, I know I have years to become successful, but I stink at everything I do. I like writing but I’m crap at it.

I’m working on a book that I just know will never get published, not to mind the sequel. I love to dance but I don’t have the body and I’m not flexible enough to do it (I’ve been stretching for years and I just won’t become more flexible).

I like to read but sometimes I read too much. I don’t have any friends really because there are cliques in my area and because I’m an introvert among millions of social butterflies, I’m not in a clique.

I’m an academic failure, unlike my older sister who gets perfect straight A’s and is always winning awards at school. I play the piano, fiddle and tin whistle but I’m self-taught and don’t have the time to keep practicing every day, so I stink at those too.

I just feel so useless compared to famous people around my age like Maddie Ziegler (“the Sia girl”) or Chloe Lukasiak. I know they say you probably won’t experience major success in the first 15-20 years of your life but clearly that doesn’t go for everyone.

Not just the girls I mentioned, but for my sister (an amazing piano player and academic star) or my brother who got to go to America (we live in Ireland) to a basketball camp. I don’t know what to do, please help me?

I didn’t want to mention this, but I think I should just tell you, so that you understand what I really mean. 2 weeks ago I had sex with a girl next door, and she is already telling me that she is pregnant. Should I kill myself before my dad finds out because he will kill me after all.
