Dear Dish-It: What is Love?

Dear Dish-it,


Love? Is that a real thing, or not? I looked it up in the dictionary, and there was nothing!


Shay


Dear Shay,


Love is probably something you’ll spend years trying to define – unfortunately, it’s not as easy as looking it up in the dictionary!


In fact, you may find yourself feeling like you’re “in love” several times in your own life – and, each time, it may feel slightly different to you. What I’m saying is that, at the end of the day, love means different things to different people at different stages of their lives, and it’s generally a wonderful thing as long as you learn to keep your balance and not fall “head over heels” into it. Remember – love is supposed to feel good. When you find it, try to savor that good feeling rather than worrying about labeling it or trying to define it somehow.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

CoolerThanMyself
I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)

Is there a particular reason or situation causing you to feel this way? I can't provide much advice other than talk to them about it. Communication is important.

He is a jerk, but then what ?? He is your best friend . Maybe you should tell him to sleep for an extra hour. It may be a lack of sleep.
