Dear Carol

What to do when a friend is jealous of your report card

 
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 been great, except now that school just finished, she is super jealous of my good grades on my report card. I don't want her to feel that way and it's annoying. What should I do?

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.
