Dear Dish-It, Should I Switch Schools?


Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

I have a problem. My friend is going out with this really popular guy and she's acting really stuck-up and she never hangs with us anymore. Her boyfriend talks bad about us and she doesn't even stick up for us. I'm going out with this guy that my friend's boyfriend doesn't like and it's a total disaster. What should I do?

Dear chicalarena88,

Sounds like your friend is letting her boyfriend's popularity go to her head. It also sounds like her boyfriend is a real jerk. Talk to your friend when she's not with her BF. Tell her that she's not being cool to you and that putting a guy before friends never works out. It may sound like a cliche but the fact is, boys come and go but friends are forever. If your pal still has any sense left, she'll smarten up and start treatin' ya better. If she doesn't, she'll keep acting like a tool until the boyfriend dumps her. I'm sure she'll want some friends then. The question is, will ya still want to be her friend?


Dear Dish-It,

I just started high school this year. My junior high was split up into two different high schools. My "best friends" go to my school. They've been mean and are ignoring me lately and not talking to me. I have so many friends at the other school. I am not allowed to switch schools, even though they are in the same district. Should I try to be friends with the people at my school, even though they hate me, or should I just stick with my better friends at the other school? Help!!! (Next year I can transfer schools if I want.)

Dear skittles123,

Well, this one is a tough one. If I were you, I'd definitely be spending a lot of time with the friends from the other school. However, I wouldn't totally rule out the peeps at the school you're currently attending. Try meeting some new peeps there, but don't bother with the losers who blew you off. They aren't worth your time - but maybe there are other people there who are. Try joining a club, sports team or activity at school, as a way to meet peeps. If, at the end of the year, you still aren't happy, then maybe changing schools would be best.


Dear Dish-It,

I'm totally depressed. I think my boyfriend is gonna dump me. I'm not sure though cuz he won't call me and won't pick up the phone when I call him - which is about every hour. We haven't seen each other for six days and he hasn't spoken to me for three days. I have no clue why he won't talk to me either. The last day he talked to me, he was happy and he said he loved me, etc. That night though, he turned all mean and said he needed to think about us. I'm really scared and it's all I can think about. I think about it so hard my head feels like it's gonna explode. I've cried every day and my eyes are all dry and gross cuz there's no more moisture. I really love him and I wouldn't be able to live normally without him. What should I do?

Dear kellyblue15,

You need to give yourself a break. Take a deep breath and try to relax. Your boyfriend is having a crisis. It may end with a break-up, it may not. I wish I could see the future for ya and tell you how this will go down, but I don't know. Chances are your BF doesn't know. Sometimes, especially when you're a teenager, you can get overwhelmed by feelings and stuff. This seems like one of those times for your BF. The best thing you can do is stop calling him, give him some space and take care of you. Get the girlfriends together and do something fun, like watch movies or go to a concert. If you're not up to a big group thing, call your BFF and just cruise the mall, buy some new togs or have an ice cream pig-out session. I know it'll still suck - and it'll still hurt, but getting your mind off of the situation is the best bet. He'll come around when he is ready. Hang in there.


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

She would go out clubbing every Friday and would yell at me for my attitude towards it. Why would I be okay with her doing that??? I didn't really realise it but I began feeling kind of depressed. Of course we didn't fight all the time but when we did I would always end up crying alone in my room. And it would be really painful. One time I cried every night for a week because of her. A week ago, I felt really sick at school so I went to the sick bay but my Mum refused to believe I was sick. She thought I was lying and being over dramatic as usual. I felt really horrible after that, that the teacher sent me to the guidance councellor and almost immediately I burst into tears. I didn't even know why I did but the councellor did a little test on me and came to the conclusion I was slightly depressed and had anxiety. It wasn't really surprising but hearing it out loud just felt really weird. Even after knowing that fact my mother doesn't really act any different. She's not a bad person I swear but she can just be really horrible at times. Anyways, that's technically whats been happening in my life lol. Nothing really interesting Oh dear, that sounds like a dreadful situation. I've lived through similar difficulties in my own life, and my heart goes out to you, truly. May I offer you some advice? I don't have the cure to your problems or a magic wand that can make them disappear, but I do believe that some good can come out of your living situation. The first thing I'd like to make note of, is that everyone makes mistakes. As human beings, we have to make mistakes. There's no way around it; it's how we learn and grow. And as we get older, we don't stop making mistakes. Your parents are no exception. Although we look to our parents for guidance, and direction, and support, we have to understand that they aren't perfect people, and they make mistakes. They may not always lead us in the right direction. They may not always set a good example. They may not always be there for us, to encourage us and support us when we need them most. And that's okay. Everyone makes mistakes, and we have to accept that. But we can't let allow other people's mistakes to hurt us, my dear. And I know it hurts. Your mum might not understand how her actions make you feel. You said you haven't been the same since your parents divorced, and I know how challenging that can be to go through. But you know, some of the brightest, wisest, and happiest people I've met, are people who have dealt with difficult problems in their lives, and used them to grow as people. You can let your parents' mistakes get to you, and make you upset and depressed; or, you can accept that they aren't perfect people, accept that they make mistakes, and accept that their mistakes don't have anything to do with you. So here's what you do, friend: you can't stop your mum from going clubbing, and that's okay. Don't try to. Don't fight with her about it. You can let her know how it makes you feel, but don't get into an argument. Accept the situation for what it is. Your mother is her own person, and she is accountable for what she does; you aren't. Next time you start to get in a fight or an argument with her, just step back, and withdraw yourself. Try it, see what happens. Once you decide not to let other peoples' failings affect you--and you do have the power to do this--then you'll find a sense of peace you probably haven't felt before. And you'll learn from your mistakes, and the mistakes of your parents, and everyone around you, and you'll be a better person. Press on.

    If you are getting abused to the point where you bleed, call the police immediately. This isn't acceptable behavior.
