Now and then when I decide to talk to her about it, she says she is sorry but then she thinks that's enough and leaves me in the dumps again. Now I've made a new best friend and she has the same problem with her best friend. But I still am sad because her new best friend (my newest best friend's used to be best friend) and her are like glue and always brag about it in front of me. I don't know how to confront them without feeling guilty. Then I get mad at myself and now I pretty much hate my (best) friend. So help us please.”

--Andrea, 11

”My friends and I don't really fight a lot, but when we do fight about boys, we also fight about teasing because we always tease each other in a fun way, but sometimes we hit the ‘I can't take it any more’ spot. Then we get mad at each other, and instead of telling each other how we feel we kind of ignore each other (the longest time I think we ignored each other was for 15 minutes). Anyways, one of us will ask what’s the matter and say to each other, we should tell each other when we do something the other one doesn't like, and then we will start making fun of what we were fighting over. Now we’re getting used to saying what is bothering us.”
