Dear Dish-It, They Think I'm Crazy

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

Dear Dish-It,

At my school, I tried out for this poem contest thing. They said it was a good poem but now they're all worried cuz they think I'm depressed or crazy or something. It's really starting to worry me! What should I tell them?

Dear Swinky,

Lots of peeps find that getting their emotions on paper helps them deal. This doesn't make you depressed or crazy. It's a very healthy way of dealing with your feelings and the situations you find yourself in. As long as your poem is just an expression of what you are feeling and in no way an indication of what you may be planning to do to yourself or to others, then there's no problem. Explain to your teachers that your poetry is just poetry and they'll most likely drop it. If there is a little something more behind this poem though, you should come clean and talk to someone about what you're goin' through.

Also, if you'd like to share your poem with other Kidzworld members, and we'll publish it on the site!

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
