Dear Dish-It, Did I Do the Right Thing?


Dear Dish-It


Dear Dish-It,

One of my teachers recently lost her daughter to cancer at a very young age. She has taken the month off, and I wrote a nice poem about love and loss and sent it to her via mail. I'm not sure if I did the right thing. Will she get mad at me?

Dear shanana99,

It was very thoughtful of you to send your teacher a poem during this difficult time. She's probably having an extremely hard time dealing with the loss of her daughter, and it is always helpful to know that there are people around her who care. You might not get a response from her right away, or even at all, but that doesn't mean that she doesn't appreciate the thought. It just means that she has a lot on her mind and can't focus on thanking everyone for their letters and cards, etc. Now that you've done something to show that you're thinking of her, just give her space to grieve. These things take time to get through. If and when she returns back to school, I'm sure she will thank you for thinking of her during her time of need.


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 .

    I think having 1 to 3 good/best friends plus multiple "normal friends" is pretty healthy. That way, you have a select amount of people you can confide in about problems if your parents are momentarily unavailable or if you're uncomfortable speaking with your parents about the problem, as well as some people you can have conversation with every now and then. Having friends is great, but I personally think that bonding with too many or not enough people isn't exactly... good. To choose, though, I would rather have a few close friends than many non. :P

I started making more friends so someone would be there for me and I would be there for them. Now, I don't have a BFF. Just a ton of close friends, which I like. But I don't know if I made the right choice of doubting everyone or not.Thank you my friend, maybe fear of being ignored causes this reaction from us but as we know having friends is always good and no one can deny it.I am sure you will find who you are looking for, give yourself some time.It will be fine.
