Dear Dish-It, I Don't Like Being Called Rich
This may sound crazy, but I don't like being called rich! I am rich, but if someone asks how do they describe me, they say rich. Sometimes I don't think I'm rich, but all the other kids do! Sometimes I even think of myself as spoiled... help me!!!!!!!!!
I don't think they mean anything bad when they call you rich. They're just callin' you rich cuz you're the rich kid. It's like how you would call the school basketball star a jock... cuz he is. It's cool to be able to afford the finer things in life, but if you're acting like a spoiled brat, then you're not gonna be left with many - or any - friends. The best way to stop being a spoiled brat is to just stop being one. Don't throw your wealth in other kids' faces or brag about how much money you have cuz that's just not cool. Instead, why don't you show your pals how generous you are by sharing your wealth? You could treat your friends to an ice cream sundae or take 'em to watch Blades of Glory, which is hilarious! If your parents buy you a new outfit every week, you could swap clothes with friends once in awhile. If you get a brand new bike, let the other kids take it for a spin around the neighborhood. Start changing your attitude and soon, everyone will stop buggin' you cuz they'll realize you're a regular kid who just happens to have a few more dollars in your pocket.
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 .
