Help!!! (I suck at titles) - November 6th 2013, 02:18 AM

Ok so one of my friends from 3rd grade (I will call her Fishy) is in my class this year, but there's a problem. She is possessive over me, she never lets me have any friends, insists that I always work with her on projects (but she never does any of the work) but I don't want to refuse to work with her as I know how it feels to be rejected! What should I do?

Hi Erika.

It sounds like you are in a tough situation, but luckily I have dealt with the same type of situation before and have a few things you can do.

Option #1: Communicate with her. Tell her that you feel like she should put more work in on the projects, and that she should allow you to do certain things (like have other friends). However reassure her that you aren't discontinuing your friendship with her, you're instead balancing it.

Option #2: Talk to a counselor or teacher. Try to transfer classes (into another class), or try to make it where she puts you on the opposite sides of the class. Simply let your teacher/counselor know of the situation so they can give you additional advice/tips.

Option #3: Discontinue the friendship. Meaning, stop being friends with her and seek healthier friendships (ones in which you don't get manipulated or possessed over).

Option #4: Keep going on the path you are on now (ie: not fixing the problem, but instead letting it 'be').

Personally I would go with option #1. Talk to her about things. If after you talk to her, things don't improve and/or she starts acting in a negative way, then try option #2. If after moving to the opposite side of the class, or after getting transfered to another class she is still being possessive over you, then I'd go with option #3 (which is discontinuing the friendship). Atleast then you will know that you tried to make the friendship work out and you had no other options left.

I hope things work out.

Best wishes,

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...
