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 don't really think the word would be desperate. In the situation with your uncle, I think you we're maybe being a tad bit rude. I think you're mom may have been addressing a different situation if she claimed you were being desperate.

I can understand why she is saying this, if it has gone on for a long time. If it hasn't, either she is wrong or she really likes Sigmund Freud.
