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 .

    How Do You Deal With Depression?

    • I hole up in my room and listen to angry music.
    • I fill my face with Chunky Monkey ice cream.
    • I get all my frustration out on paper by writing poetry.
    • I'm never depressed.

    Hi there! My most important advice would be to be yourself! live your life! do the things you want to do. If you've moved past what happened with your feelings for one another, just go and enjoy your time. If things are weird, it'll be because of her, not you. Stay positive and calm and I'm sure you'll have fun!   Hope you have a good time!

    I think that rubber band bracelets are totally in right now. And they are easy to make on a loom! Head scarves are also in as well. Hope you found this helpful!

    Wow! This sounds so frustrating! Maybe talk to your mom about what's going on. Ask her why she's doing it. She might just be worried about your safety online. More and more there are unsafe people talking to kids on the internet. I'm sure your mom just has your best interest at heart. See if you two can agree on how to keep you safe online!   Good luck!

    One thing that I have noticed is that a lot of people seem to think they should have a boyfriend or a girlfriend as soon as possible, but they don't need to until its the right time just for them. You don't have to be forced to fall in love with someone if you don't want to. Let love come in its own time. And to keep away from any problems with her if she may become mean, try just forgetting about what happened and treat her like a normal person you know, and try to avoid any arguments. If she becomes mean, maybe just walk away for a bit. And if she is still being mean, maybe confront her asking what you have ever done to make her this way towards you. If you have done nothing, then she will have no reason to be mad at you so its not your problem she is being mean so you don't have to be stressed about it. I hope this helps! :)
