Advice About Teen Depression

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?
Swinky


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 .

    If people ask me about scars I don't feel comfortable explaining, I just tell them I don't want to talk about it. Most of my actual 'friends' know where they came from. Otherwise, your body isn't anyone elses business and, if they push, know you can tell them so. Take care.

    Sorry you have to go through this. I've been in a couple similar situations with my dad, and although it sucks for us too, I really chewed him out for my little sisters sake. I'm not saying start a fight (that was stupid for me to do), but it is important that they understand that scrapping in the home where the little'ns are present is unacceptable. It really screws you up, living with that. They should know that if they're going to fight to do it someplace else. Sometimes we have to remind them. ... The relationship between your dad and his girlfriend is their business. Their issues have nothing to do with you guys, you are never the problem... but it also isn't your place to dictate their relationship. If they break up, then it was inevitable and probably for the best. Fighting doesn't always mean the end though. They may just be going through a rough time.
