I have no classes with my BFFs!

There are four seventh grade classes. My BFFs and I have been in the same since second grade. We found out this year that all the classes are going to be completely rearranged. I'm so worried I won’t be in the same class as them and I don't really make friends that easily. I have no idea what I’ll do without at least one of them in my class.
Hey chica,
I totally know how you feel. I’ve been in your shoes plenty of times and you know what? There’s nothing to sweat. With a few tips and reminders, you’ll be the social butterfly of the year!
Try to be open-minded about the whole sitch. It might seem easier said than done, but staying positive is the key. For example, see it as an adventure or opportunity to meet new, interesting people. On top of that, this gives you an excuse to hang out with your girlies more outside of school! Looking on the brightside will keep you motivated to get through this.
Think way back to when you first met your BFFs. Was there something specific you did to become friends with your chicas or did it kinda come more naturally? Chances are, it’s the latter and this time it’s no different. When you make new friends this school year, don’t over think it. If you get into a conversation, let it flow. If someone invites you to hang out, go for it. You don’t have to plan or know how to make friends because…it’s in your nature!
Just be who you are! Yes, it sounds cheesy, but it’s the pure truth. When you become friends with someone, it’s because you find a connection with that person. It just clicks. And if you’re yourself, you’ll feel comfortable and confident whatever sitch you’re in. Good luck!
