Dear Dish-It, My Mom's Having a New Baby


Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

My mom's having a baby and I've been stressed ever since she got remarried. Then my aunt died and it really hurt me. Please help!

Dear abby,

It sounds like you've had a lot of big things to deal with recently, so it's understandable that you would be stressed out. To lose a loved one at the same time as your mom is beginning a new life, it must feel like your life is being turned upside down. Add a new baby to that equation and you've got some serious chaos. While this is definitely a tough situation, it's not one that is completely hopeless. You are probably feeling a little neglected by your mom who is focusing most of her attention on her new marriage and the soon-to-be new child.


One way for you and your mom to bond is for you to get involved with some of the baby stuff. You're probably not super excited to suddenly have a new sibling on the way, but the more you get involved, the easier it will be on you and your parents. It's also a good idea to try and schedule some time with just you and your mom once and awhile. Whether it's shopping, a trip to the movies or just lunch every once and awhile, it's important that you and your mom make time for one another, especially now that there's a new baby on the way. You need to tell your mom how all of these changes have made you feel, cuz she may not realize how disrupting this has been on you. You should also think about all the good things that will come out of having a sibling. There are tons of fun things you can teach and share with him or her like how to put on make-up or how to catch a baseball. Assembling some sort of scrapbook for the baby to look at when they are older is also a cool way of bonding and it's a good creative outlet. Hope this has helped - Good Luck!


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 am your friend and I know you from a long time , Nisha. You are a nice girl. Just remember​ one thing that there is beauty in imperfection​.  Don't feel afraid to think or express anything you feel just because you think it's dumb . It may be dumb for some but it also may be cool for some. We all are different in our own way and that's what makes us feel unique. Just be yourself even if you think it's dumb because it will never make you regret and always get you the right ones in your life :):):):):)

    I don't know where else to post this, but note that this isn't related to my friends. In a small way it is but it isn't.. anyway, my problem is I've read a lot and observed people around me. I've realised the kind of mistakes they make and have learnt how to avoid some of them. I've learnt from my childhood stupidity and sillyness too, and from the past two years. But I did something that many others must have done. Problem is I feel dumb now. Not because I think myself to be superior to others but because, it's simple for them to get over it but for me it's hard. I don't want to mention what I did but I had really strong feelings and one slight word can ruin my mood in that case. I've realised my problem is that I want to be perfect and to not make mistakes. But I know that mistakes help us learn. And I just need to relax but don't know how to. I want to, unlike people who give up and submit to the darkness - no offsense. But I really, really want to. It's been tearing me apart. Please, if anyone can help me, please please help.
