Being a kid (Or teen) you always want to have a best friend and it’s common. But sometimes you get so obsessed with having a best friend, that you forget your good friends.I’ve seen that happen a lot, but that’s not all.
Your best friend might get jealous when you spend time with other friends (That happened to me). Or your BFF gets mad when you’re doing an activity constantly, and miss many of her activities that she wanted you to go, like a concert or a play that she is in. I’ve also heard of friends getting mad at you because you chose someone else as your best friend and no them. As you can see, best friend look like a good idea, and they can be, don’t get me wrong but not always. Here are the answers if something like this is happening to you.
you get so obsessed with having a best friend, that you forget your good friends. If that is happening to you the solution is simple, calm down with your best friend and try to reconnect with your friends. Show them that you still care about them, like a gesture or just a simple talk, if the are giving you the silent treatment there are two options: don’t push them and let them go to you,or try talking to them , if they don’t listen give them nice notes on their lockers and gifts, they’ll come to you.
Your best friend might get jealous when you spend time with other friends. If that is your problem here is what you have to do. First tell your best friend that she isn’t the only person in the world, and that you can hang out with anyone you want. But tell her/him in a calm, subtle way. if not then that’s her problem, don’t feel bad she chose to deny your decision.
Your BFF gets mad when you’re doing an activity constantly, and miss many of her activities that she wanted you to go, like a concert or a play that she is in. If you’re going through that tell her that you are sorry but that you wouldn’t get mad at her if she didn’t skip her special activity for yours. But if you feel extremely sorry, just make it up to her, give her a gift or a gesture that shows you care.
Friends getting mad at you because you chose someone else as your best friend and no them. In that case, you need to set things straight, tell them that they are very important to you, and they don’t need to be your best friend to be important to you, you still love them. If they don’t accept your decision it’s not your fault, give it time and let her come to you.
