Dear Dish-It, Why Do I Feel Out of Control? (pg. 2)

Dear Dish-It,

My parents are splitting up and I feel like I have no control anymore. Why?
lollypop


Dear lollypop,

You probably feel like you don't have any control because, you don't. Even though your parents splitting up is probably turning your life upside down, you, unfortunately, don't have a huge say in what happens. Try talking to the 'rents and at least let them know how you're feeling. They're not going to be able to magically make everything better but at least you can talk things out and maybe find a way to make things a bit easier on you. You can also take a look at this site, which has some great advice and resources about dealing with divorce.


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 .

    I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

    Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.

You can write a note or a card to him. I'm sure he'll understand. And of course if needed see a doctor so that he'll know what to do to deal with those headaches.

    You won't want to be, it's exhausting. Just be happy the way you are and don't care about what others think or say about you.
