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 .

    If you're having issues on KW then you can always report, ignore/delete, and block the person! Also let the moderators/admin know you're having issues! Same goes with most other places online.  It's also a good idea to tell an adult; you don't deserve to go through this! Whether it be a parent, a friends parent, teacher, principal, counsellor, family member, police officer, any trusted adult!  Unfortunately we here cannot stop what is going on for you, but we can remind you that you can get through this and things will get better. Keep your head up, and stand up for yourself. Take care. :)
