Dear Dish It, I Can't Keep My Opinions to Myself


Dear Dish-It is here to talk about 2 things we all have troubles with: our opinions and arguments. These can be dicey, so let's read on.


Dear Dish-It,

I keep getting into arguments at school and now they're getting a bit more serious. Lots of people are my mates, but I just can't seem to keep my own opinion to myself. What should I do?

Dear beauty1566,

First, having an opinion means you're human. We've all got opinions, cuz we all 'think', and compare, and judge. So sounds like you think a lot, and that's a good thing. But did you know that our opinions tell the world a lot about us! They tell people we're mean, or nice, or cool, or, or, or..... Scary, huh? And it's defending our opinions that gets us into arguments!


So, now that we know you're human (jk), what do your opinions tell your mates about you? Or, what do your opinions tell 'you' about 'you'?


You say your arguments are gettin' more 'serious'. Does that mean 'mean', or more thoughtful?


And, you may have lots of mates at school now, but if your opinions are mean, and you keep dishin' them out, you won't be left with any friends by vacation time.


So what should you do? Simple - like your granny says, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."


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.

Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.

If that fails, tell another trusted adult, like your mother. I'm sure someone you're close to would do their best to get justice. This is a major problem and it's a shame no one's done anything to help. ​No one listens to me anyway but my friends

Behaviour like that is not acceptable in the slightest. ​Teacher said to wait for the Bus Driver and the counselor, she just talks to me and doesn't tell The Princible
