Dear Dish-It, It's Hard to Deal

Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".

Dear Dish-It,

I am just really confused. ok, well, I know I made a booboo by ditching school but I was talked into it by some frends. I also know I still could of said "No" but it seemed flawless. Me and 3 other friends ditched to go hang at my house, watch movies, pigout, have some fun when the school called, erase the message off the machine and everything would be gravy. Well, when I got home I thought "Oh crap, my mom's picking me up after school today for a doctors apointment. Then my frends give me an idea - call her, and say it's raining and just tell her you don't want to wait in the rain, just pick me up at home. So I called the 1 time - no answer. The second time she picked up, I told her. She said, "Oh I got your message... So I thought cool, I'm free and said my goodbyes. Well, my dad confronted me later that day. He grounded me the whole two weeks of x-mas break. Even x-mas, I was mad I thought for sure one of...

Dear CaliforniaTeen6,

One of your what... Hey girl what happened? How did your dad catch you? No dis girl, but you can't afford to miss a day of school. It took me a long time to translate that letter and correct the spelling. I think the least you can do is tell me how it ended. So write in and let me know where you were goin' with that story. Holla back now.

Dear Dish-It,

My little sister is always taking things out of my PRIVATE! bedroom and keeping them. I've tried to guilt her into returning them, I also asked her for it and (promised her) she could get ice cream. I told her so many times that I want it back. She knows when she steals something I am going to say "Give it for some ice cream?" It is so hard to deal with school, rude people, life, and everything else, that this is just the stick that will harden the mud.

Dear Britfan761,

The stick that will harden the mud? I've never heard that expression before but I love it. You're right Britfan - it is hard to deal with everything that life throws at us... and majorly so when you throw school into the mix. But challenges can be fun so keep workin' at it... and don't let the rude people get to you (their rude cuz life is even harder for them!) As for your sis - she sounds pretty annoying. Younger sibs usually are. But try to understand, if she's goin' into your room and takin' your stuff all the time, it's probably cuz she thinks you're the bee's knees! She probably thinks you rock, and have all the tough stuff like school, friends, style, (and the other life stuff,) covered. I'd guess she wants to be just like you... so considered yourself flattered girl.

I think you should talk to your man and tell him that if he doesn't talk straight to his parents that you are his girl, you will kick his sorry behind to the curb!!!

Dear Anon,

You go girl.

2 be dump is very painful. I see how you feel. But if you are a gurl you should be dumping the boy, and if you are a gurl getting dumped you ain't got skill.

Dear Princess1450,

Princess, I suggest you lose last century's stereotype - being dumped isn't a reflection of either of the two peeps in the relationship. It says more about the relationship itself - for one reason or another it isn't going to work out, so someone calls it quits. Watch yourself, ain't nothin' that says you too couldn't be dumped one day... I wonder if you'll have a different attitude then.

So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

    My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion

    Don't worry about it. Friends grow apart. That's how things go. Just talk to her about it, she'll understand.
