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 .

    YEs I have been bullied. A lot. People who I think are my friends are back stabbers. They suddenly just like turn on me. I've had rumours spread about me and I was so sad. I hated being bullied. But the best thing to do if you are being bullied is to hold your head high and not cry. Because if you show a single tear that is what the bully wants And it will take you as an easy target and will bully you more and more and more and more. And bullies won't stop until you stand up to them.

    I would also talk to them and tell them how you feel. If they still say they are signing you up for the membership as a 13 year old and it scares you that much I would just tell them to leave you off the membership until you do turn 13.

    I think every house has some drama going on in it everyday. In my house my Mom is a divorced mother of 3 kids. My older sister is away at college but when she was here there were yelling matches between my mom and her about staying out too late and getting a speeding ticket. Also with my mom being the only one raising us she has to work full time leaving me to watch my little brother who is 10 after he gets home from school. There also can be some battles that go on there and my mom doesn't want to here it from me or him when she walks through the door after work. I just try to not make it all personal and chalk it up to the stress of everyday life.
