Dear Dish-It, I'm Getting Picked On

Dear Dish-It,

I used to love going to school not too long ago until everyone at my school started acting stupid and rude. I'm sick of it! All I hear every day is people screaming, yelling, cursing and swearing. I can't take it anymore! Plus, I'm now getting picked on! I don't know what to do! I can't be home-schooled.

Dear BritBrit,

You know it's funny, school is really scary when you start, then it becomes really fun, and then it sometimes starts to suck again. It sounds like your school is particularly full of jerks and, if you're being bullied by some of them, that's definitely not cool. You're at a time when people are pretty much at their jerkiest. A lot of people in middle school and high school are making bad decisions when it comes to their behavior towards others, either cuz they're immature or cuz they fall to peer pressure and insecurity. If the bullying is really bad, talk to a teacher, school counselor, or your parents. Reporting the bullies doesn't make you a crybaby - it makes you mature. Their meanness could really, really do damage to you - or the next person they "attack."

Have you tried to seek out other people who might feel the same as you? I bet that not everyone at your school is stupid, rude and yelling all the time. Why don't you try joining an after-school activity, either at school or at your local community center? Meeting new people, making new friends, and trying out new activities will help you deal with your frustrations, as well as help you open up and share your feelings with others rather than keep 'em bottled up inside.

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'm an older sister to a 13 year old brother. Neither of us really agree on much, either. I prefer this, he prefers that. I prefer that, he prefers this. It's natural regarding age differences. Even just a years worth can hold plenty. It's best to meet in the middle with things. Like, my brother and I for instance don't really agree on anything. But, it's good to meet somewhere with things to do together whether its agreeing on a movie to watch or playing a video-game together. Even drawing or helping each other out with something. Just keep in mind, when it comes to this, you won't always want to do what they want.

I understand this situation. Personally, you can tell your sister if you're completely sure on what happen. But, make sure she stays quiet about it until you both come to an agreement on when you should confront your parents about what you saw.

Here's something to think about @IlikeGUYS20, I can say this about myself, and I'm sure, from this post, you'd agree. I'd love to have a girlfriend, and I'd also love to have a boyfriend. I'd be open to date any gender that my romantic partner would claim. We should just see what makes us happy before we label ourselves. Thanks! :)Have a wonderful day!:rainbow ❤

You should grow comfortable with yourself before you come out. If you're not certain if you are indeed bi, then you shouldn't slap that label on yourself yet. Take some time to really think about how you feel, but don't worry too much about it. Your sexuality isn't everything. You have plenty of time to discover yourself as person. Don't rush it.
