Dear Dish-it: We're Falling Apart

Dear Dish-it,


I've been with my BFF since Pre-K. Now we're going into 5th grade and we're falling apart. I'm losing her and I don't know what to do. We chat once in a while but not a lot. We don't go over to each other's houses a lot. I wanna stay friends with her forever. I need help!

Dear FA,


It's sad, but sometimes even the best friendships drift apart - it's no one's fault. It happens gradually and sometimes you don’t even realize it until it may seem like it’s too late. Here’s the thing though: it never is. While you may not chat that much anymore or go to each other's houses, your friendship is far from dead. You’ll find by reconnecting and making an effort to see each other, you can definitely bring this friendship back to life.


Natural Connection

Getting the friendship flowing again is as easy as finding the strength to make the first move. The next time she’s online, try chatting with her. You’ll find since it’s been a while since you chatted there will be TONS to catch up on. Ask about her classes, sports, activities, summer plans - anything. Once you break the ice, it will be like you never were apart in the first place.


Get Together

Once you have your convo and reconnect, continue to talk regularly with your friend. Make a point to bring her back into your life. Invite her to sleep over one weekend. Try inviting her to the next party you. You’ll find the more you talk and see each other, the more you’ll build a bridge over that gap of separation. Sure, you may not be the BFFs you used to be, but in the end, what matters is that you still and will always be friends.

Have You Ever Crushed On Your BFF?

  • Yeah! Now, we're dating.
  • Yes, but I've never told them.
  • No way! I don't want to be more than friends with my BFF.
  • Not so far - but I guess anything's possible.

There's an easy way to erase that "bully" label you're giving these people. Would you like to hear it? Rhetorical question. Words only hurt if you let them. I understand how harmful negative comments can be, but you need to try your absolute best to ignore them. The main goal bullies have is to bring you down; they want to see you get upset. Shrug it off. A tweet from the lovely Suzy Berhow states "When some is nasty or treats you poorly. It says nothing about you, but a lot about them". That's a quote everyone should live by. Just keep your head up. ♥♥ Even if your friend doesn't go to that school with you, don't worry. I'm sure she'll still be there to give emotional support when needed.

New school = Clean slate If you don't like things that took place at your old school, congratulations- you're going to be in an environment with different people who, likely, act a different way. The absolute best way to make new friends is to be yourself. Don't act like someone you're not just to please people. Who cares if you're "too nerdy"? At least you're not fake. And remember - even if you can't make new friends, you always have the ones that are already there for you- including your internet pals. They'll all have your back. Good luck. x

Socialize. Or drop your pencil in class next to someone, they will pick it up and you can say "Thanks, Hey, aren't you the kid from ____? I'm ___, nice to meet you!" And if all else fails {which it WONT!!} you always have us to escape reality. But still, good luck! I have a feeling you won't need it :)

I know it can be quite embarrassing sometimes when you want to invite your friends on this site. But just give it a try. Tell them about the cool features we get and tell how fun you have and stuff. I am sure if they really take your opinion seriously, they won't bother about the name 'kidzworld'. In my school, everybody think that kidzworld is a cool site and stuff.  :)
