Dear Dish-It: My Friend Punched Me

Dear Dish-It,

My ex-friend punched me in the gut today. My parents warned me this was coming but I always believed she truly liked me. So many things have happened in the last few months that I just wanna run away from it all. I want to transfer to a Christian academy because in my current school the f-bomb comes out at least twice a minute. Please help.

Dear Chic365,

I’m sorry to hear about what your so-called friend did to you. It’s never ever right to harm someone physically, no matter what. I guess you have learned a bit of a lesson from this, though. Maybe the next time your parents warn you about something or try to give you advice, you may want to listen to them more carefully. It’s not that they’re adults and you’re just a kid so that must mean they’re smarter than you or know better than you – all it means is that sometimes people who are outside of a situation and not directly involved can see things more clearly than someone who is right in the middle of things and may be blinded by emotion.

This girl who punched you is definitely not your friend. If I were you, I’d cut all ties with her immediately. You don’t have to be mean about it. You just have to stay true to yourself and do what’s best for you, which is to surround yourself only with good people who love you and care about you, and who would never do anything to hurt you.

As for your school, I don’t see the problem with transferring to a new school for the next school year. I myself transferred out of one school and into another when I was younger, and it was the best decision I ever made in my life. So why not sit down with your parents and talk about the possibility of changing school for this coming September? You never know, it just may happen!

i know the feeling. but i got taken off a website instead of my friends. i can assure you they probably feel the same and are missing you, BUT its not worth dwelling over it. friends come and go without any choice in life and trust me, i lost the love of my life and my two of the best friends in the world. The thing is, you have to move on, because they wouldent want you feeling sad over them right? they'd want you to be the happy person you were when you were with them! for starters, i'll be your friend so your not scared to make some new ones. To be honest, i went through the exact same thing as you did and it DOES hurt very bad. But once you find some people that are willing to make you feel better, you know you've chosen the right friends again

Start dressing for your shape and also find whats comfortable.  Because if you wear something that is uncomfortable you wont be happy and happiness is the best look :) Most of the time I wear jeans with a graphic tshirt or singlet and a cardigan or light jacket. Hoodies are great for winter. And I wear combat boots like doc martins and converse. Hope I helped somehow! :)
