" Hey, I am having some friend problems at school. One of my friends has been my friend for about 3 years, and another I met through another girl. We spent most of the summer hanging out but one of them has changed a lot. She is always bossy, she cusses a lot, she thinks she's cool and she's very disrespectful. I don't know why she's acting like this. Also, my other friend is a diva. She's bossy and gets everything she wants. I feel embarrassed to hang around them and I don't really want to be friends with them anymore because of all of this. I'm still nice to them and act like we're friends. I feel confused and I feel like I have no friends. I do is still be nice to them, and act like I am friends with them. Should I keep doing the same thing I'm doing now or what?
And M Girl's answer is:
"Sometimes friendships run their course and it's no one's fault. As you're growing up, you'll make tons of new friends and maybe grow apart from some old ones. Even though you've been friends with these girls for a long time, it's ok if you realize that they have some personality traits that you don't agree with. Try to distance yourself from your friends if they are acting in a way you find inappropriate. You should still be polite and kind when you interact with them, but try to make some new friends. Strike up a conversation with people from class or join a new club or activity to meet people who share similar interests with you. It won't be long before you have plenty of new friends to hang out with!"
