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 .

    Thanks @AnnaOfExquizurd that may be very useful to me. And it sounds cool too! :D I thought about just thinking about the positives but didn't really work. I'll try this too!

That's terrible and has happened and will probably happen with me again. I think you should try being nice to that mean girl even though you don't really like her. If she makes a joke about you just try to laugh at it, don't be hurt by it or make a mean comment back. :)

    If you really want to get rid of the romantic feelings for him, just try picturing a future with him, and also asking these questions in your head, "Is he a good guy?" "Would we last?" But maybe he's acting awkward around you, because your friend asked him to Prom, but he might rather go with you, but doesn't know how to say anything about the situation. I would suggest talking to him about it, and if he is a jerk about it, don't bother. But talk to him first, and if he has the same feelings, then talk to your friend about it. I just want to warn you, that if you do this, you and others could get their feelings hurt. Crushes are a risky, scary thing in high school. Anyway, that's what I think you should do. If you don't want to do that, then follow what your intuition tells you.

    I had a crush on this new guy, and it's really the first crush I had in a long time. But, he is so amazing that everyone else seems to have a crush on him too. In my family, I can't date until I'm 16 anyway. But my best friend just asked him out to prom. I realized that she likes him a lot and tried to let go of my feelings for him. I am not angry with her at all, if she wants to date him, great. But, it's been hard to let go of my feelings completely. I'm convinced though I just want to be his friend. However, I think he knows I used to have a crush on him, and he acts a little awkward around me, but I don't want to feel that way for him anymore. How can I get rid of my romantic feelings for him (should I? It's being the bigger person) and gain his friendship/lose the awkwardness?
