Dear Dish-It: Quickies (6)

Dish-it gets so many questions, she doesn’t always have time to answer them all right away! Here are some quickie answers for some of the shorter questions she’s received.

I love baseball and I want to be a baseball player but nobody thinks I can do it accept my family and my friend. What should I do? – punker11

You should prove them wrong! First of all, you’re allowed to have whatever goals and dreams you choose. Second, who knows? With enough hard work and practice, maybe you WILL become a ball player when you grow up. I think you should practice, practice, practice and hold on to your dreams. If people are picking on you or trying to bring you down, just don’t talk to them about the things you want to do when you grow up.

School is coming again and this time I wanna become friends with my crush. But the problem is that I'm too scared. What do I do? – kiara14u2c

Well, if what you really, really want is to be friends with your crush, then the only thing you CAN do is overcome your fears and start getting more and more friendly with him! Try sitting next to him in a new class or asking him to work on a project with you.

How do I handle my best friend going to a different school – taryn901

Just because your BFF is going to be in a different school than you doesn’t mean your friendship needs to end. While you make friends and hang out with people in your school and she does the same in her school, make sure the two of you agree to spend some time together every week or month (whatever works best for you). Also, fill her in about the things going on in your life on a regular basis by phone or e-mail, and ask her lots of questions about her school and the friends she has there. You can also include her in activities that involve your school friends, and let her know you’d definitely love to meet the friends she makes at her school.

If your friend says something mean about you, would u still be their friend? – babylaboo1998

Forgiveness is a wonderful thing. If you can find it in your heart to forgive your friend for what he or she said, that makes you the bigger (and better) person in the situation. If you can’t forgive your friend, then you have to let him or her go and move on. It’s totally normal to grow out of old friendships and to let go of people who don’t bring happiness into your life. I guess the thing you need to do is think about whether or not you can forgive your friend and whether or not you want your friendship to end over this one thing.

    Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

    No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

    This is gonna be long:   I have this 'friend' Amelia. She and I bonded really fast last year and we've become inseparable.   But lately she's blowing me off and my other best friend Belen told me: Amelia is actually using you. She does this to new kids at school, especially from foreign countries. She thinks because you're Chinese and the Chinese teacher's daughter, you'll help her. She's also using you as a backup friend - a substitute. There's this new girl Daniela, who Amelia thinks is her new best friend. She thinks that when Daniela stop hanging out with her, she'll have you.   The thing is, Daniela is pretty nice and she probably doesn't know all the trouble she's causing. Belen's old 'best friend' Andrea is doing the same to her.   I also learned that Amelia is seemingly the 'most popular girl in school' because she's mean to everyone. She always passes by the little kids' classrooms and hugs them & stuff. They seem to love her, but now I know it's because they think if they're nice they won't get bullied.   Maybe she WAS using me but I dunno. Belen says that each kid in the entire school has a bad story about Amelia and something she did to them. I said, "Then how was she so nice to me last year?" Then Belen was all like, "She was using you."   I don't know if she's telling the truth. She and Amelia are deadly enemies and she might be making up the whole Amelia story just to get back at her. Although Amelia has been dropping a few signs that she IS using me as a substitute friend.   Sometimes when I walk in, she'll be like "OOOOHHH! CASSANDRA! HI! HOW ARE YOU! C'MON, LOOK AT THIS! WE'RE GONNA HAVE SOOOO MUCH FUN TOGETHER ..."   And other times I'm like, "Hey, Amelia!" and she says, "Oh. Huh? Yeah, hi ..."  Once during PE we had to sit down and on the way to the gym, she was chatting with me in a BBBBFFFF way. But then when we had to partner up she said with Andrea, Daniela and someone else who I forgot.   I don't know what to do. It's just so weird. Even though now I know she MIGHT be using me (I'm not sure if she really is) it just seems WEIRD. Even for a supposed ##### she was my possibly fake best friend for the whole of last year. It's WEIRD to suddenly switch.   I don't even know if this should be happening. We've only just started 5th grade. Doesn't this WEIRD #### start happening around middle school? Thank you, everyone who will help in advance. P.S. Please include flirting advice. - A Girl Who Might Just Lose Her Possibly Fake Best Friend
