Hey GirlMoguls, it’s Lily again, dishing on the BFF scene. Did you read my last post where I talked about how my BFF since babyhood Mina totally ditched me for Popular Penny and her crew? Well she did, and I was totally over it, but then guess what happened….
If you guessed that Popular Penny and her crew were not to be trusted and totally turned on Mina then guess what… you’re right. See that can be the problem with trying to be part of the popular crew –seems like those girls are always getting into fights and drama over silly things – and getting mad at each other. And saying mean things about everyone else. And making other people feel bad, just to get a laugh. If that’s popularity, then I say no thanks.
Well, soon Mina found herself on the outs with Penny and her crew. She looked really sad and upset hanging around school. She even texted me a few times but I kinda of ignored her. Finally she corned me at Candi-A-Rama right by the mini red Swedish fish and asked if we could talk.
Mina apologized to me for ditching me and for not defending me. Turns out she was trying to get Penny to like her. Well, duh. And now she’s seen Penny for who she really is, and doesn’t want to be friends with her. Of course when I asked a few of my probing questions, it also turns out that Penny doesn’t really want to be friends with her either anymore.
And now Mina wants to be friends with me again…She brought up all the fun stuff we used to do and all the memories we shared — like the backyard campout where my brother tried to scare us by hooting like an owl. And other stuff – my heart strings were really tugged. But I still wasn’t sure. I mean could I trust Mina? After all she ditched me once. And since I stopped hanging out with her I had met lots of other cool girls and we had a lot of fun – and so far very little drama. I didn’t want to lose all of that just to go back to hanging with Mina 24-7…
So, fellow GirlMoguls – what would you do? Would you take a friend back after you’d been ditched? Could you trust her? Or would you ditch her just like she ditched you? Let me know what you think…and then I will tell you what I did…
