Hey M Girls!
We have a BRAND NEW celeb advice column on mmm-mag.com. Each day at 8:00
PM/EST we'll post a reader question and have a different star answer it!! Today, we have Ashley Greene giving tips on being bullied!
M Reader kassilayton asked:
I'm in the 6th grade this year and I have liked this guy since elementary school. But this new girl at school is threatening me to stop liking him because she likes him too. I've tried going to an adult about this, but she won't stop. The worst part is, I just can't stop liking him! What do I do?
And Ashley's answer is:
"I think everyone has at some point had to deal with mean girls. I was going into private school in sixth grade and all of these kids had already been going to the school since third or fifth grade, so they had a really strong clique. Then I came in and I started going out with someone and this girl who was 'the popular girl' was like, 'You have to break up with him. I want to date him again.' Well, then it was war. What ended up happening was that I said, 'Listen, I'm not going to be bullied by you. I'm just going to be myself.' I didn't try to be hateful but it turned into her friends hating my friends and it was this whole big. Then we both realized that we were being ridiculous. We actually sat down and spoke to one another and realized we didn't actually hate each other. We finally said, 'What are we fighting over?' We didn't become best friends after that, but there was no reason to be hateful. It takes up too much time and energy. My new outlook on it was, 'You know what, you can say whatever you want. I don't really care. I have my friends and I know who they are.' Once I realized that the people who were talking about me weren't really my friends, it wasn't that huge of a deal after all."
