Unhappy Stuck in the middle. Please help. - July 19th 2010, 10:05 AM

I am not going to go into lots of detail about what happened because it is a long story and I'm sure you don't want to sit here for a few hours reading it.

Basically one of my friends, Ella (names have been changed) doesn't like Lucy because she started hanging round with another group of friends and leaving us. They don't have really massive fights, they just ignore each other. But then Lilly invited them both to a sleepover and Ella didn't want to go if Lucy was going to be there, so she said se had to look after her sister. But Lilly knew it was a lie and got mad and said she was just being childish. So Ella and Sophie (Another friend) got mad at her. I'm not sure what they said but now they aren't speaking, and I have to chose one.

Both groups have said they don't mind if I don't pick a side, but I know I have to because otherwise it will be really awkward.

This is where it gets complicated. I'm starting Year 10 in September and we are all in different classes, and if I break friends with one I will be stuck in a class by myself. I know it's really silly to think about that but it's important to me, I hate being by myself with people I'm not friends with. I have no idea what to do.

I am going to sleepover Lillys house tonight with Lucy. Which is fine apart from the fact I'm going straight from Sophies house and I don't want to upset her. I just want us all to be friends like we used to be.

I prefere Ella and Sophie to Lilly and Lucy, but I don't want to leave Lilly because she hates the group Lucy goes around with so she will probably end up by herself.

I really need some help. Please.

Izzy xx

Hugs to everyone

Hey Izzy!

I feel like a lot of times, when we're in high school, we do feel like we have to get all up in the middle of our friends' battles. What's really going on, though, is that we don't have to! That's their business, and if they chose to handle it immaturely, we can only give our best advice from the background, you know? So, if you prefer hanging out with certain people, that's fine. Everyone has people they prefer hanging out with, and when there are mutual preferences, that's when friendships are formed!

If you're like me, you like hanging out with pretty much everyone that likes hanging out with you. So, balance yourself evenly. Hopefully, this year will be a year of mending frayed relationships and all coming together to form one BIG group of friends! (: Good luck!!
