I am in the cool clique. It’s more like a club. We have two presidents (they are the coolest), and I am one of them. Last week, a nerdy girl asked if she could be in our clique. Two people said, “Give her a chance.” Two others said, “Are you kidding?” Now, it’s my decision. I think we should give her a chance, but I’d rather eat a tapeworm than lose my coolness!
You obviously like people to think highly of you. That’s understandable. But you need to think well of yourself too, and not let your self-image depend on what your friends think. How will you feel if you don’t give the girl a fair chance? You already know how she will feel. Try not to be too exclusive. The coolest people I know are the warmest, most accepting and most open to others.
