Wambie girls could definitely relate to Retage's situation. She's stuck between friend groups and doesn't feel as included as before. Your advice ranged from having an open dialogue with the group to walking away and finding friends that truly appreciate her.
TALK TO THEM
- zb17051998 says: "First things first, talk to your friends. If you're gonna keep all this guilt and hurt inside you, it's so not gonna work. So you've got to talk to them."
- angel says: "Sometimes your friends might not know how you feel. So I recommend that you just tell them how you feel, maybe there's some misunderstandings between you guys. Get straight to the point."
MOVE ON WITH CONFIDENCE
- Blossom says: "It's better to be alone than to be with people who hurt your emotions. Don't let these things make you feel unconfident. Be yourself and stay strong ... You are special and the fact that you are so patient and nice is remarkable."
- icelandgirl says: "Making new friends is going to be hard (been there), but in the end, it will be worth it. Just be yourself and build up your confidence, be positive and stay strong."
We think your advice was pretty spot-on. Friendship troubles happen throughout life, and as long as you continue to be as supportive and kind as possible, your true friends will emerge over time. Don't hide who you are to please those around you.
Retage must agree! She saw all of your comments, and she says: "Thanks, guys! This really means a lot to me ... I really value your advice!!!"
