Dear Dish-It, My Life Is A Disgrace

Dish-It serves up advice about teen depression.
Advice About Depression

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


Dear Dish-It,

My life is a disgrace and I am only 12. It is like my family hates me and it pees me off. At school, I am always the last one to be picked for teams. I have some friends who stick up for me, but other people do not listen to me, which I do not understand! Can you help?
Chillie


Dear Chillie,

Don't worry, Chillie, cuz things are about to get better! You're 12 and feeling exactly the way most tweens do. Older peeps think that at 12, your life should be pretty perfect with hardly anything to worry about. But the age you're at is a tough one, especially when it comes to self-esteem. It probably seems like everything is just crashin' down, but the truth is, it's not. As you said, it's not that your family hates you, it's LIKE they do. Here is a secret for ya - they don't! Your family loves you and the reason it seems like they don't is probably cuz it's tough for you to understand them, and for them to understand you - it's the generation gap. When it comes to school life, you say you have friends who stick up for ya. You are one heck of a lucky person then cuz there are plenty of people whose "friends" don't give a hoot about them. The fact that others won't listen to ya... well, why do the others matter in the first place? Your friends are stickin' up for you, and they're the ones that count.


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 .

    Well, I hope you're not friends with her whilst she's doing that.  You should confront her about it, tell her how's she's been acting and how you hate it. If it comes down to it tell an adult or someone you trust and see if they can help you. If it never gets better you should try moving on and ignoring her. It's not the best advice, but there's not a lot you can do.

    Tbh, if she says they're too short or too tight, she's probably not going to change her mind on that. However, there are tonnes of clothes out there that are really cute without being tight or short. Like jumpers, for one. If you really do need new clothes, you should try and persuade her by telling her about your old clothes, like if they don't fit any more or if you don't have many left. Start small though, just by asking for new clothes that aren't too tight (there are loads of T-shirts and stuff out there) and slowly ask for bigger things like tighter clothes or jewellery.  Though some parents just don't like their kids wearing things like make-up or clothes that are too short, because they often feel the kid is too young to be wearing things that show a lot (which some kids often are). And, I don't think you can change their minds about that, as cool as it would seem.
