Dear Dish-It: Halloween Dress

Dear Dish-It,

Can you help me? For Halloween all I wanted was a beautiful dress to make me feel beautiful for once. But my mom said no and then, when I got upset, my sisters started to gossip and say rude things to my face and my mom let them. Sob!

Dear AIA,

I’m really sorry to hear about your problem. It sounds like you feel like your mom favors your sisters over you. Is that true? If it is, many kids with brothers or sisters feel that way when they are growing up. However, sometimes it is just because you feel you’re your mom’s making unfair decisions for you – if you open your eyes a bit you may see she is doing the best she can in terms of making the right choices for both you and your sisters.


In terms of your sisters being mean to you, that’s a tough one, too. If your mom doesn’t want to step in and intervene that it may be up to you to do something to stop the teasing and gossiping. And when I say that I don’t mean you should turn around and be mean to your sisters. Have you ever heard of the saying “Kill them with kindness?” What it means is that the nicer you are to people who are mean to you or hurt you, the nicer they will become. Try it and see what happens! In the very least, when your sisters are mean to you, just walk away.


Finally, in my opinion if you really want a beautiful dress for Halloween then you should make up your mind to get one for yourself! There are lots of things you can do to find a dress, even if you don’t have enough money for a brand-new fancy one. Try going to thrift stores for a second-hand gown or garage sales that may have clothing items for sale. You can also look through your own closet to see if there’s a nice dress you can wear that you forgot about. Maybe you can even sew something together? In any case, don’t forget that you ARE beautiful, whether or not you have a fancy dress to wear. True beauty REALLY comes from the inside – so be a beautiful person within yourself and that will shine right through!

    I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
