Dear Dish-It, I'm Getting Picked On

Dish-It serves up advice about school, bullying and depression.
Advice About Depression

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 think you should be you wether or not your tomboy or girlie your being you. You have your own style and don't let nobody change that because THEY don't like it it only matters if YOU like it

This is such an interesting question.. I'll tell you why I think so. I am BOTH the biggest tomboy ever and the girliest girl. I think being either or BOTH is more in YOUR mind than in anything else - it's an internal feeling. Femininity is so personal. I always, always, always have my nails done. BUT they are Gel so they never chip and when I am climbing up mountains or pulling on my wetsuit to things that I find typically damaging to your nails - they stay perfect. So I am doing these rather "tomboyish" activities but my nails are awesome :P I wear a lot of dresses but that doesn't deter me from any activity, the key is shorts underneath. I don't wear make up, not usually but I do love lip gloss. One think I guess I think is important though, feel it. Remind yourself how awesome and unique you are, no matter what you wear - hold your head high and remind yourself you are a QUEEN. Not a princess, lame. BUT a queen! Good Luck, and I love all the practical tips everyone provided. Great job you guys!

I'll say some stuff that 'girly-girls' do, and the stuff in the brackets would be things added by my best friend. Who is also very annoyingly sarcastic! -.- Paint your toes (get obsessed to them too, all of these girls are!), wear cute little dresses (don't mean huge ballgown style dresses, duh?) , or just fun-cute tops with jeans, maintain your nails (perfectly), take a lot of care about your skin, maintain it, cleanse, moisturize and exfoliate, and start doing make up. (Also, I would suggest to learn how to do a good hair flip, for some reason girly girls are like 'ERMAIGAWD' *flip hair*) Yes, my best friend is annoying but she's girly enough to be able to have a say in here. Here's a bit of advice from me, don't try to change your style because of what people might think or say, do it if you want to and if you feel comfortable with it. You are more than perfect the way you are, whether a tomboy or a girly-girl and it doesn't really matter what you are.

Personally I think you should just find things you like and wear them without worrying about what style it fits in to. You should express yourself, not conform to other people's views/standards. :)
