Dear Dish-It: I Want Adventure

Looking For Adventure!

Dear Dish-It,

My life is so boring; I wish I could escape on an exciting, thrilling adventure. I daydream about being one of the characters in the cartoons I watch – falling in love while avoiding all sorts of danger. I feel like I'm all chained up, waiting to break free. My worst fear is that my whole life will be about school or work. There must be more to life, and I don’t think I can live without adventure. I’d learn so much about myself. I know I’m smart, but I feel like I need to learn more, not just about me, but about everything around me. I wish the world I create for myself inside my head was physically real – a perfect, adventurous, love-filled world. How could I do something to learn more about me, and everything else?

Dear true2myself,


You sound like a real dreamer – a girl after my own heart! I’m afraid what I have to say in response to your question isn’t going to make you feel a lot better, but I guess you’ll just have to trust me on this one.


You’re still quite young, and you have your whole life ahead of you. And, if adventure is what you want, then I guarantee it is what you will get! Just keep dreaming and reading and writing about the things you would like to do with your life. Keep your ideas alive in your mind and you never know, they may just come true!


I don’t know how old you are, but I’m guessing you’re still in school and living with your parents. Take a deep breath and accept the fact that you are where you are in your life, and that part of being a kid is going to school so you can fill your head with knowledge and letting your parents take care of you so you can concentrate on keeping your grades up, instead of worrying about finding something to eat or somewhere to sleep.


Once you have grown up and have gained your independence, you’ll absolutely be able to have the adventures you dream about while you’re a kid. If traveling around the world and meeting people from different cultures is what you want to do, then I’m pretty sure you will do everything in your power to make it happen.


Also, I’m here to tell you that you’re right. Meeting new people and seeing new places with your own two eyes definitely help you to learn more about yourself – but so does doing what you’re doing at this very moment. Every experience you have in life, no matter how boring you may think it is, is teaching you valuable lessons about yourself and your amazing potential to do the things you want to do and make a real difference in the world.


So don’t be afraid to chase your dreams – but don’t be afraid to have a little patience and wait for them to happen naturally, and at the right time, either.


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 Dish-It here. Send all of your questions to deardish@kidzworld.com But 'member, if ya hang out in Chat with other Kidzworld members who know ya by your 'username', ya might wanna use a secret nickname when ya write in. That way no one'll ever know it's you. And, just in case ya don't know, Dish-It gets a lotta letters everyday, and she can't answer 'em all. So keep checkin' the column cuz she's prob'ly answerin' somethin' very similar to your question while you're out doin' somethin' else. K? And Thanks! Ya keep her outta trouble. Oh! And if ya've got words of wisdom you wanna share,We'll dish 'em up, too.

Break down her door, get all your stuff, smash a flower vase, trot out the door yelling "BYE FELICIA!" and don't forget the hair flip.  (: this is how I make friends and never lose any

So I have been best friends with this girl for six years, after Halloween she has not called me, answered my calls, or come over to my house (we live close to each other and go over to our houses all the time). I don't know why she hasn't talked to me and shes the type of person if you did something to make her mad she would tell you.  I don't want to call her (it may seem needy) but I have a bunch of her stuff at my house and I really just don't want them there anymore but I don't want to call her have a huge fight and avoid each other ( which would be really hard) forever.

This is really true and sad... Many teens, have a problem with this because of society. This post helps. I have had problem with suicide and bullying. Ive felt like I should just end it because I have no point to be here because I'm being told I'm worthless, to fat, to dumb, not pretty enough, all tons of lies and i got to the point that i believe them. I'm an outsider in my school. It fells like a lot of people leave me.  I fell pain a lot. and There is bullying going on in my school. Life fell mean less a lot. I have to remind myself that I do have a point and that people do love me.  I know know I do have a reason to live and so do you guys so  Don't ruin you're life. You're to young.  You're to worthy. The bully are just jealous of you. Don't self harm tonight. Don't comment suicide. You all are worth A lot I promise. People love you. Don't worry about hatters. The hatter are gonna hate but lovers are there to help you trough the pain and if you did comment suicide imagine how they'd fell. Thanks for posting this it really helped me and really could've saved a life:) :) Bullies are just having problems themselves remember that!!!! Stay strong everyone!!!

It feels like no one cares about me at school. I really can't trust anybody either. I started to quit eating at home and at school only eating snacks every now and then. I am also losing Weight. I used to get called fat and i wasn't even fat. I have been abused by people who say my butt is smexy and huge and it's not. I have even been slapped on by them. I tell my mom and dad that i've been called fat and my dad ignore's me and continues whatever he's doing. I'm getting to the point again where i'm losing my temper and emotions right on the spot. I can't be bipolar cause it has to run in the family and my mom says i don't have it. People get mad at me when i don't laugh at their jokes when they expect me too cause i really don't listen. But when i say something funny they roll their eyes and give me mean looks. I don't even want to be around people that much. I just want to be outside in the fresh air during school but it's high school so their's no outside time. I also fake smile's at people to make them happy. But i just hurt on the inside. I just want advice.  Hi there. I'm sure you have people who care about you at school, just sometimes it's hard to see it. Dear, you have to eat. I assure you, you're not fat. (smexy isn't necessarily a bad thing)  You have to understand, that people say things just because they can, or to make themselves feel better. Never give them that opportunity, just ignore them. When you're about to lose your temper, think of something that makes you really happy.  If you need someone to talk to, you have your guidance consular, trust me I have social anxiety, and reallly hate talking about my problems, I find it easier for me, to message them. It's their job to listen, but not only that, they really care for all of their students. Talking helps, believe me.

Things happen for a reason, normally to make others stronger. Trust me, nothing is worth taking your own life. If you need to talk I'm here, however I would suggest you talking to an adult.  Friends come and go. you have family, and if not, you have me, Trust me, it's not worth it. please, don't.
