Dear Kermit: Grumpy in Greenfield

Hi, K!

I am in dire need of your advice!

There is a person who I cannot stand. What I mean is that every time I hear them breathe I wish they would stop, and every time they speak I can’t help but notice that what they’ve said was extremely stupid. All this in mind I can’t ignore this person, because my schedule makes it impossible to avoid regular interaction with them. What do I do! They have stolen my chocolate bar, and lied about not doing it! I know this seems like I am VERY much over-reacting, and I admit I am; However the hate that this small act has generated, has led me to unintentionally attack others, and is a testament to how much I loathe this person. Yes, I am over-reacting about a small thing, but I am sick of this person lying, and getting away with it.

In the past the person had told me extremely terrible things, which I know now to be lies, and currently she claims to never have told me the lies in the first place. Please please please, a penny for your advice (OR MORE). I know I must be the better person, but I can’t help but cringe with hatred whenever they walk in the room. I’m sure this feeling has miraculously become innate and there’s no way of changing it. I guess I’m asking in general, how can I teach myself to not hold grudges against her, (for both our sakes) so that I won’t have to live in anger all the time? Again please help.Thanks for time and consideration!

Grumpy in Greenfield.

Dear Kermit: Big-Hearted Hogger

Dear Kermit,

I have been broken up with my ex-girlfriend of 2 years for about 3 months now. She lied to me, cheated on, played, and threw away the love I gave her. And while I am over her, it still hurts watching her with her new boyfriend who I know is not a good person. I love her and I always will as she is the first girl I ever loved and I have some sort of emotion connection to her that will never waiver. During this difficult time, I have been talking to other girls and spending time with them but I only see them as placeholders. I love the feeling of having a girlfriend but is it what’s truly best for me? I’d really love your advice on how to tackle all of these issues.

Sincerely,

Big-Hearted Hogger

Dear Kermit,

Midterm grades are coming out soon and, if I’m finally being honest with myself, I haven’t done well at all. In fact, that’s pretty much an understatement. This is my first semester at a very intense school, and the level of work and effort required of us has been really difficult, way harder than my previous school. The issue is my parents have no idea! I haven’t been completely truthful with them about my progress and experience in school, and when they find out…let’s just say it won’t be pretty. Help! What should I do?

Thanks,

Nervous in New Hampshire

Dear Kermit: Conflicted in Connecticut

Dear Kermit,

It’s a classic conflict. You find yourself in a place you love; a place that has embraced you and made you feel at home. The people you have met quickly found places in your heart and become family. This place is truly special and you know it, and you could stay in this place forever and be happy, but there’s something within you that wants more. In my case, it’s about college. I chose my current school because I knew it was full of incredible people, and I knew I would feel incredibly comfortable on campus. I sacrificed the field I was interested in studying in order to have an easier transition and because I was scared of string [sic] from what i [sic] knew, but now that I am here, I realize that I have an internal dilemma I am dealing with. Do I want to be comfortable and happy now, or do I want to transfer and study what I actually want to study.

I guess the umbrella question I’m asking is: how do you decide whether to stay comfortable or move on and strive higher. And how do [sic] deal with cutting ties with all you loved about where you were?

Signed,

Dear Kermit,

I am f-a-t. Fat. Hefty. Big boned. Chunky. You know that Eddie Murphy movie with the Klumps? Well I’m pretty sure he wrote that about me. I’ve tried everything to lose weight, but nothing works. I’m usually okay with my body, except for when summer rolls around. I’m so self-conscious that I’d rather wear sweats than shorts. I can’t even dream of going to the beach—who’d want to see my cottage cheese thighs in a swimsuit? Bathing suits weren’t made for me. I don’t really know what I’m asking, Kermit…I guess I just needed to vent.

Signed,

Dear Kermit,

I’m pretty distraught right now. My girlfriend, well, ex-girlfriend, went out with another guy this weekend and it broke my heart. I treated her so well, but maybe I should just be a jerk. I don’t know what to do to get over her. Any advice?

Signed,

Heartbroken Hermonite
