Dear Dish-It, My Friends Ditched Me

Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".

Dear Dish-It,

My two best friends in the whole world and I all went shopping. Then, unexpectedly, they darted off while we were just sitting there! So I called my dad to pick me up. But then I thought if he knew they darted from me, I wouldn't be allowed back to the mall. So I said, "Oh! dad, they were right behind me the whole time! I'm so dumb..." and said goodbye and went to find my friends. I didn't know what to tell them when I found them, so I said that I had to phone my dad "For advice." That excuse was lame, but, whatever. They were all ticked-off at me for calling my dad and making them look bad. Then at school, my two friends made people run around saying, "OH MY GOD, Kyra! I lost whomever! Do you have a quarter so I could phone my mom for advice?" I'm wondering if my friends are worthy enough to be my friends? I would never want to dump them, ever. What should I do?

Dear Queen Kyra,

Sometimes even our best friends in the whole world can act like complete jerks. That doesn't mean that you still can't be friends with them but maybe you just need to let them know that you don't appreciate being treated like a lemon-flavored Skittle - only good enough to be nice to when there's no one else around. Hopefully they will soon realize that they really miss your friendship and will come crawling back, begging for forgiveness. If they continue to act like three year-olds who forgot to take their afternoon nap, then go and make yourself some new friends. We all act stupid sometimes, but if they are really worthy of your frienship, they will shape up very soon!

My friend Sam did that and she started hanging around with the popular kids and she was all mean to me and my best bud. I decided if she was gonna be mean that I would just tell them that I don't want to be friends with someone who is gonna pick on me.

    Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx
