Why does it take so much effort to go up to the new kid in school and just simply say hi? Chances are they are terrified to be in a new place so probably the nice “hello” is a comfort, There will the the few that will be rude but you should still be nice to them.
There is a new girl in our school, she is a freshman and looks very sweet but very shy, I waved at her, smiled at her, and even know her name because she was introduced in one of my classes today but I never could get to courage to go up to her and introduce myself.
I saw her at lunch today she was looking for a place to sit, I wanted to invite her to sit with us but never did, I said to myself well if she comes a little closer I will but I watched her look for a little bit and finally find some people who were braver than me.
So why does it take so much…this year there have been 2 new kids in my grade that have lockers right next to mine and now this girl who is a year younger. I have yet to introduce myself to any of them. This is not something I’m proud of, and something I need to work on, but I know I’m not the only one. So i wanted to give a challenge and some encouragement. Maybe you have a new kid in school too try and go up to them, even bring a friend with you.
And if you happen to be the new kid know it’ll get better hopefully you have some brave people in your school. I’ve been the new kid I went from being home school to public school but I knew some people. So hang in there new kids and pray for a friend, God will listen and send some brave people your way.
