Hey M Girls!
We have a BRAND NEW spin on the daily advice column on mmm-mag.com. Each day at 8:00 PM/EST we'll post a reader question and have our M Girl answer it!! Today, we're talking feeling like you're losing a BFF!!
M Reader kittenkrazy3 asked: My BFF (since Kindergarden!) and I started middle school this year. Everything was going great until she met a new friend and has no time for me anymore. They leave me out all the time and it makes me really upset. I don't know what to do!
And M Girl's answer is: "It can definitely be stressful when you think the one friend you have is turning her back on you. Your BFF is probably just getting used to the new middle school and exploring new people, trying to make friends. But you're right -- she should be thinking about you at the same time. The truth is, she's either not thinking straight and getting caught up in meeting new people, or she isn't realizing how much she's hurting your feelings. Either way, something needs to be done. If you try talking to her (on your ownÂ -- and without her friend there) and it doesn't work, then you need to wait for some time to pass until she realizes what kind of a friend she's losing. If you find yourself waiting around, go out and make new friends of your own! Middle school is a huge, new place with tons of new faces. You're definitely not the only one afraid to meet new people. So remember that the next time you want to join the crowd during lunchtime or the after school sports team. Tons of girls would be lucky to have you as a friend. When you and your BFF get a little more settled in your new environment, you may find yourself forming the best friendship you've ever had! So hang in there and in no time you'll see that it'll all work out in the end."
