POSTED IN bad friend, dear carol solves BFF probs, 411 on fighting with friends, I want to be popular, advice from Carol Weston
i think that if they don't treat you like a friend they are no considered as a friend. I have been through what your going through before its not easy. they talk about you behind your back, call you names etc. Try to get over them and find other friends you have common with. Thats the easy way!

okay so I usually hang out with a large group of friends but suddenly one of THE most popular girls wanted to be MY friend and she invited me oner with her other COOL friends. but when I got there all the girls were whispering and telling secrets that I wasnt a part of and started gossiping about my other friends I told them to stop but they wouldn't and at school they kept asking me to join them but I want to hang with my BFFs NOT them but she threatens to ruin my life if I leave I'm afraid of what will happen to me or my other buds help me
by llamaglitz on 4/22/2012 5:17:20 PM
I'm so sorry! I know the pain. I suggest saying exuse me, I really don't like you calling me names, I hope you can forgive me if I hurt your feelings saying this, so please stop. Then just walk away. Maybe staying away would work to.Then she will get the sign and apoligize. Maybe you two can be friends again!
by stylish873 on 4/17/2012 8:32:47 PM
I feel you. I really do. I suggest you nicely pull her aside and tell her exactly what's wrong. If she dosen't understand, you have other friends, and the reason she has a group like that is because she is scared of having no friends. Trust me, I would know. According to the "Queen Bee" of our school, I have no friends and that the whole fifth grade is against me. I don't believe her. If you're really worried about it, and it gets really bad, bring it to a trusted adult, or try to ignore them. Because that takes away their power. Try it! I wish you good luck!!!!!

how can i convince my parents to let me go to a concert they don't approve of ? they're hard core christian & the band is never shout never , sooo yeah . -.-
It would all depend on what they aren't comfortable with about the concert. If it's you going alone or with friends, ask who they would like to join you in order for them to be okay with it. If it's the music, show them that the lyrics aren't anything against their beliefs. Jordan S.

Hey sunnybubbles, I'm sorry things aren't going so good for you right now. But the thing to remember is it will get better, maybe not overnight but eventually. You just have to start doing things now to get to a happier place. The first thing is to gain some confidence. When you feel good about yourself nothing can get you down. One thing I've found that helps is making a list of all the things you like about yourself, include at least 10 things. This list can include anything from how good you are at cleaning your room to how cool your girlslife profile is. Every morning read this list to yourself. You'll start to feel better and will find more things you like about you. Sit down with your parents and let them know how they make you feel. Tell them that yelling at you all the time makes you sad. Scheldue a sleepover or get together with our friends to bring you guys close together. Hope this helps! Xoxo
I am depressed. My mom is always yellin at me, as well as my dad, and my parents love the girl I hate more then me, and I just cut myself with a shaving cap like serouisly 5 mins ago. I cant smile, and none of my friends want to hang out with me anymore. I need help, I feel like no one wants me, and I am useless. Please HELP Lynae P.

Same thing happened to me!! I used to be part of the so called "popular group"...but they were being so mean to other girls that I just couldn't take being friends with them anymore. Ever since I ditched them I've been BEST FRIENDS with one of the girls we always targeted.
Popular people and cliques can be so dumb...like we made fun of her because why?? I don't even know, she is SO pretty, nice, and fun...we were probably just jealous of her.
That's how it always goes: Hurt People, hurt people (my 8th grade language arts teacher would always say that..totally true)

all of the "popular" girls at my school are nice. but some of them just act nice and then try to embarrass/gossip about you, and some of them are genuinely nice and fun to hang out with.
by music_lvr on 4/6/2012 9:49:23 PM
the popular girls at my school are nice enough but they gossip way too much so I don't like to really hang out with them too much. But some of them are truly nice. Most are just understood.

Carol's right! You shouldn't be "friends" with someone just because they are "popular". If they are a true friend and "popular" that's cool too! But, as long as they are your true friends, who cares if they are "popular" or not! What does it really mean to be "popular"? Does it mean that you are pretty and mean? WHO KNOWS!

y woul du TRY to be friends witha "popular girl"
by coly33 on 4/6/2012 6:55:54 PM
That just happened to me last week. The "popular" girl who was my so-called friends told me she doesn't think it is a good idea for me to be friends with my BGF, and I told her she can't choose my friends, and then this whole mess started. All of her "popular" friends called me names, and whne I confronted her, she denied everything. It's just best to slowly pull away and seperate yourself from her.
by soccerstar25 on 4/6/2012 4:58:04 PM

If that happened to me I would just ask her what's up. If she's not being a good friend, end the friendship! It's her loss...
