Advice About Friends

Dear Dish-It,

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!!!!!!!!!

Dear hollywood111996,

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 .

    I think you can not be sure he likes you. take me as an example theres this girl in my class who i talk to everyday. Now i see her as a sister and i have and will go to lengths just to make sure shes okay and her boyfriend doesnt hurt her. This might be what is happening in your situation so i advice that you wait a bit longer because him loooking at you may mean that he likes you and is waiting for the right time to tell you. Meanwhile you can get closer to him and flirt once in a while to asure that him you also like him (that is if he isnt sure). And dont worry if he doesnt like you back its better to have a friend who cares about you than a boyfriend who doesnt like you that much and is dreaming about someone else.

    What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

    Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried
