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!

If you really want to get rid of the romantic feelings for him, just try picturing a future with him, and also asking these questions in your head, "Is he a good guy?" "Would we last?" But maybe he's acting awkward around you, because your friend asked him to Prom, but he might rather go with you, but doesn't know how to say anything about the situation. I would suggest talking to him about it, and if he is a jerk about it, don't bother. But talk to him first, and if he has the same feelings, then talk to your friend about it. I just want to warn you, that if you do this, you and others could get their feelings hurt. Crushes are a risky, scary thing in high school. Anyway, that's what I think you should do. If you don't want to do that, then follow what your intuition tells you.
