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?

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 .

    Tbh, your mom is kinda, you know, right about it. I mean, net is not as safe as we think it is. All I can tell you is that don't talk about her in front of your mom and don't give your friend any personal details about you.

    I am sorry for what you are going through. I feel that it is time for you to find new friends - true friends. Try finding friends with same interests as you. You'll have more things to talk about that way. I hope things get better with you and your friends.

    I'm 12 years old, and for some reason I'm always sad. I got a gold medal in my gym, and I just started crying, but I wasn't crying because I was happy. I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated.

    I'm hoping to get my ears pierced, though I don't have the time or money to do it at the moment. Hopefully soon, though.
