Dear Dish-It, How Do I Get My Life Back Together?


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


Dear Dish-It,

My dad is driving me crazy! He's always complaining and cussing and yelling and I'm fed up! My best friend won't take me seriously and has totally ditched me! People are constantly picking on me at school (and sticking gum in my hair!) and I can't take it! Whenever I try to talk to my "friends," they blow me off and tell me to get over it. To them, something as simple as someone sticking gum into my hair becomes a hateful argument between us. My hair (I know this sounds dumb,) means a lot to me. And that's just one incident. I need serious advice on how to get my life back together!
P.S.- I feel like everyone hates me! I need a friend or someone who cares and don't suggest my 'rents cause they're half the prob!

Dear Over The Edge,

If these are the kind of peeps you are calling friends, I'd hate to hear what your enemies are like. It is definitely time for you to break away from the losers you call your pals and find some cool kids you'll feel comfy confiding in. Have you considered joining an after-school team or club at school? If that's not your style, why not take a class at your local community center on the weekends? You could learn to make candles, cook or learn to relax with yoga. At the same time, you'll meet a ton of people who you may not have ever run into otherwise. It seems clear that your friends at school aren't there for you, so why not get out there and broaden your horizons? Good Luck!


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 .

    Well That is your choice who you want to stay with.Nobody can force you about it.When your parents see a family<a data-cke-saved-href=" lawyer, then he will ask you whom do you want to stay with and jury will decide.So dont worry .

    I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
