Dear Fighting With a Friend


“My friend and I got in a major fight over the last gummy bear…what do I do?
Just kidding, we’re fighting over homecoming dates because I told her her dress was the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen in my life…what do I do now?”
-Fighting With a Friend

Dear Fighting With a Friend,
Friends argue over all kinds of things. The closer the friendship, the more you are likely to argue. Close friends are kind of like siblings, so it’s totally normal to fight. In this situation, the first thing you should do is apologize to your friend. Everyone has different tastes in style and even if what she picks doesn’t work for you, you should support her all the way through. Maybe you could show her you are open-minded to her sense of style by helping her pick out some cute shoes or a purse. Let her know that the dress isn’t your type, but that she can definitely rock it. Be sure to show her that you care about her and you value the friendship. I am sure your friend will understand, and you two will be back to normal in no time.
Good luck,
