Dear Dish-It, I'm Going to Be All Alone

Dear Dish-It,

I have two older brothers who mean the world to me. I mean, they taught me everything I know. Now Jayson, who's 18, is already planning to leave for university. He was planning on staying home to help dad with the family business but now he's leaving to some school to be a doctor or something like that! What do I do? My other brother is 17 and he'll be leaving in a year or so too. Then I'll be all alone. I need help!

Dear some1_you_don't_Know,

Even though growing up is generally pretty cool, there are certain things that aren't so fun to deal with. One of those things is having your siblings move out and go their separate ways. When you're the one being left behind, it's totally understandable that you would feel like your world is being turned upside down. But, instead of getting bummed about your brothers taking off to do their own thing, you've gotta look for the positives. You're not going to have to fight to get into the bathroom anymore, there will be no more games of remote control tug-of-war and you're guaranteed that the 'rents are going to give you a lot more freedom. Plus, think of the cool trips you can plan to go and visit your bros. You'll be able to master the art of letter writing, and maybe brush up on your photography skills so you can send pics to your brothers of all the cool things they're missing at home. Just hang in there and before you know it, you'll be the one shipping off to college and your brothers will be the ones sending you care packages!

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

    My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion
