Hey Girls – it’s GirlMogul Lily here with more BFF advice. It seems as we go through school, friend stuff gets more and more complicated. I mean, like wouldn’t it be easier if you could just know that you could always count on your friends. I mean with the other GirlMoguls, I feel like they have my back, but I remember last year something totally uncool happened between me and my friend Mina. Mina and I have been friends since like forever. We totally met in baby gymnastics and it seemed like we were inseparable since. We even went to the same school too, but that’s when the trouble began…
Last fall, when we started school, all of a sudden it seemed like Mina couldn’t stop talking about this girl Penny. She and Penny had met at the pool club over the summer – while I was at camp, and they had hung out and really hit off. At first I was happy for Mina – I mean I was glad she wasn’t moping around all summer. But I was worried. Penny is one of those girls – totally popular and always surrounded by a group of friends – totally not the nicest girls either if you know what I mean.
I was afraid that once we got back to school and Penny was surrounded by all her old cronies she would drop Mina like that. I was all prepared to offer a sympathetic shoulder to cry on, but the total opposite happened.
It seemed like Penny and Mina were totally inseparable! And now Mina was part of Penny’s clique. And I was the one left wondering where I was going to sit and lunch. Then Mina began avoiding me out of school. One time I caught her breaking plans to go to the mall with me to go over and have “spa-cials” at Penny’s house. Ooooo – I was so mad.
And then it turned out that Penny was saying mean things about me – calling me desperate and a hanger on, and a goody-two shoes. Instead of defending me, Mina laughed right along with everyone else. Boy did that really burn me up. So what did I do? Ok so, I went home and had a really good cry. I rallied. I called one of my other friends and asked her to go kick the soccer ball with me. And I kept my distance from Mina. But I kept my mouth shut. And before long, I was making new friends and having a great time. Sure I missed Mina, but I wasn’t moping around – or trying to make her hang out with me…
But you’ll never guess what happened….to be continued….Check out Part II here
