Dear Dish-It, I Don't Want to Share a Room With My Sister!

Dish-It serves up advice about sibling rivalry.
Sibling Rivalry Advice

Dear Dish-It,

I hate having to share a room with my sister - I am going crazy. I've asked my parents if I can get this little space we have and they said no. My clothes are all over the place because there is no space in the closet for me, so my clothes are just on the floor. My sister throws my clothes everywhere cuz she doesn't want it in the closet. I don't have space to put any of my things because she has so much stuff! What should I do?

Darkmaster

P.S. My sister is 16 and I am 12.

Dear Darkmaster,

Sharing a room with a sibling is rarely fun - especially once you've both started high school and are leading completely separate lives. It's possible that your parents don't realize how bad this arrangement is for you. I'm sure it's not a lot of fun for your 16 year-old sister to share a room with her 12 year-old brother either, so why not call a truce with her just long enough to band together to get what you want? By teaming up and going to your parents together, maybe they'll re-evaluate their decision on you taking over the extra space in the house. If for some reason they still object to this move, try appealing to them to at least get your own dresser or wardrobe so you have somewhere to keep all your clothes and possessions separate from you sister's. Although things kind of suck right now, in a few years time, when your sister ships off to college, you'll be rewarded with a bedroom all of your own. So stay positive and good luck with the 'rents!


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 .

A true friend will make the effort to talk to you, not wait for you to contact them first all the time. A true friend will stay your friend for years A true friend won't act different around others to impress them and leave you. A true friend listens to you just as much as they tell you things. A true friend makes you happy to be with them There are a lot of things that define a true friend, but really you already know whether your friend is a true friend or not. You just have to stop for a moment and think which sadly is something I don have

    i don't think the word 'desperate' has anything to do with that, tbh.

    ...See....the thing is....idek what you just said. Soooo.... And so, after I read it again, I got the parts where you said your uncle...looked like a dinosaur. Well, that has nothing to do with desperation. Maybe a little bit rude?

    In my opinion I think telling him is the best option and from what you told me it seems like he likes you too so Idon't think you should be shy but if you are you can always have a friend ask him out for you but I think it would be best if you asked him :)
