Dear Dish-It, I Want to Find My 7th Heaven

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

Dear Dish-It,

My parents have been divorced since I was five, and I live with my mom, so I really miss my dad. Please give me some advice on how to deal with this! The theme song to 7th Heaven says, "When the world doesn't treat you right, to go home; it's the one place that you will find 7th Heaven." The problem I have is what home to go to - my mom's or my dad's?

Dear Walkbifaith,

Though it would be nice if everyone's life could be as happy and idealistic as the members of the Camden family, real life rarely plays out like an episode of 7th Heaven. We're not all going to grow up in a house where there are seven kids, our dad is a preacher and fresh baked cookies are waiting at the end of every bad day. Real life cannot be resolved in an hour and we can't try to compare our lives to a TV show theme song. It totally sucks that you have to go back and forth between your parent's houses but at least you have two parents who you really love. If you're unhappy with the amount of time you get to spend with either parent, sit and talk to them about it. I'm sure they'll be willing to work out a schedule so you can get as much face time with each of them as possible. Instead of worrying which house is the best, think of it as having two "7th Heavens" to go to. Because we all know that two is way better than one.

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 .

    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

    Don't worry about it. Friends grow apart. That's how things go. Just talk to her about it, she'll understand.
