Dear Dish-It, I Am Too Emotional

Dear Dish-It,

Hi, I am a 14 year-old teenager and I need help. I have been going out with this boy for almost a year. Just recently I have gotten REALLY emotional. If my BF said that he wasn't going to come over to my house that day I would come home and burst into tears. He has been saying that it is getting annoying that I keep crying and it makes him feel bad when I cry. I am scared that he is going to break up with me because of my crying problem. I know it hurts him when I cry and I don't know what to do. How do I stop crying over stupid things? Can you help me?

ZacksJessey12,

Being a teenager can be a really emotional time in a person's life. You are encountering a ton of new experiences and for the first time in your life you're having to face the world on your own. This is your first real relationship, so it makes sense that you might sometimes find that to be overwhelming. Another reason you might be so emotional is that your body is being pumped with hormones that weren't around when you were a kid. There's often a transition period where your bod and brain battle it out - but eventually they call a truce and you get used to the excess estrogen in your system.


Unfortunately for both you and your boyfriend, crying is just one of the things that is a classic girl trademark. It's not something that girls always want to do, but sometimes we can't hold it back. And you shouldn't. If you're feeling sad, just let it out. Don't bottle up your emotions to hold onto a boy. But, you should also try and avoid bursting into tears around your guy everytime something upsets you. Instead, take some deep breaths, go for a walk or treat yourself to a bubble bath. It's important to make sure that you're getting lots of sleep and exercise too, cuz this will help your body adjust to all the changes its going through. If you are really concerned with how you've been acting, maybe you should drop in to see your family doc to make sure that it's just teenage hormones on the rampage and not a bout of depression that you are fighting. Hope this helps!


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 .

    Are You Really Emotional?

    • Sometimes I get a little teary-eyed or angry.
    • Not really. I'm pretty chill.
    • I constantly feel like I'm on an emotional rollercoaster.
    • Are you kidding? I don't have time for emotions.

    lisp or not, i'm sure you're a nice person. i don't even know if you can get rid of this lisp- maybe practice speaking at home, try different movements with your lips or mouth, i don't know. don't let a lisp make you less confident, that doesn't change anything about you as a person. be yourself and be confident.

    Dear Dish it, Im already a grown teen but I don't think I am that easy to get along whem meeting new friends in school. And I think its because I lose my confidence cause I got some speech defect which called lisp. I often sometimes looks weird when theyre talking to me and It really affects me. What should I do? I have read and tried all the practice and therapy I read in the internet for a year but it doesnt make a change. I hope you help me

    you really need to have a proper chat with your parents. you're doing really well in school, and seem to have a good set of friends, and tell them that you should be able to go out, i mean you've done nothing wrong and surely should be allowed a little freedom in return?
