Dear Dish-It, How Do I Stop Being a Hypocrite?

Dear Dish-It,

I am a hypocrite. Let's just say this - I got invited to "Annas's" party. I went and I had a good time. But the thing is, with "Anna", I always talk bad about "Faye". And this time, I talked bad about "Anna" with "Faye". I feel really bad, but I am still friends with both of them! What should I do to stop being a hypocrite? I really do not try to be mean!
Love ya lots.

Dear * secret luvr *,

So far you've been lucky that no one has spilled the beans about your back-stabbing. But, rest assured that if you keep up the trash talking, you won't just lose one of your friends, you'll lose both. No one likes a gossip, especially when you don't seem to have a reason for it. Both of these girls are apparently your friends, so if you value their friendship at all, you will zip those loose lips of yours. There's really just one very simple way of not being a hypocrite, and that's to just stop being one. Talking about your friends behind their back is not a disease that you can get medication for - you just have to have the willpower to be a better person.

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 .

Ever Trash-Talked a Friend?

  • No way! I would never talk about my friends behind their back.
  • Once or twice, but I try not to make a habit of it.
  • Sure, who hasn't?
  • It's usually my friends who talk trash about me.

He is a jerk, but then what ?? He is your best friend . Maybe you should tell him to sleep for an extra hour. It may be a lack of sleep.

No. I don't like those people at the mall. Sometimes, they ask my family and I (usually directed at my mom and sister, but sometimes at me, too. Even though I'm under 13. Not for long though.) if they want their hair done. And sometimes I'm so tempted to say, "No thank you. I did my hair today. Do you think I want it done?" But of course I never do. It's kinda disrespectful. So we just usually say No thank you. My mom, sister, and I now have a solution for that (my idea when I was maybe ages 9-11) Don't make eye contact with them and pretend that they aren't there.
