I’ve been best friends with this girl practically
forever. We were never in the same classes but, this year, we are in almost
every class together. It’s great, except she gets really jealous whenever I get
a good grade.
Dear Down With a Friend,
It’s tough having a jealous friend but, believe it or not,
it’s also tough for her being the jealous one. Be sure you’re not boasting
about your grades. If you are humble and she still holds your A’s against you,
speak up. Say, “I wish you wouldn’t be mad about my grades. I could act jealous
of your great singing voice or how well you shoot baskets, but I’m happy for
you. Let’s support each other, OK?”
Friendships often go through growing pains but, since you
two are so tight, it’s worth working through this.
