So recently I got back together with my friend and we started talking. Now let me give you the background:
It was my first year at this new private Christian school I was going to after I had been in a public school my entire life. I started making friends with this one girl and before i knew it we became BEST friends. I had never had a friend like this and it was totally new to me that friendship could be this strong. We would talk to each other constantly every day and even after school got out we would Skype. The end of the year came and we hung out over the summer a little and she had actually told me that one of her old friends who had went to the school was coming back our next year there. I had always felt a little threatened by this girl because it was like once she came in the room my friendship was out of the picture. To make a long story short she came back to our school the next year and my “best friend” slowly started not talking to me and then completely avoided me for a good part of the year. I was never mean to her but she became very hurtful towards me as she avoided me and my questions and trying conversations with her. It was only when we started slightly talking and laughing that she started sparking up the “friendship” again. Let me have you know that I’ve realized that she has talked to me more since I brought up this guy that I know likes her to her face. She’s nice to me and we still have this friendship but there’s times when I feel like she chimes in things just to put me down. (ex. I like this guy and she told me things that he’s done that are repulsive and that he supposedly likes the girl that came back to our school) I’m not sure if I’m crazy or she’s just insecure or whatever but I still want to be her friend. I miss having a friend but at the same time I don’t like the way that she treats me sometimes. Sometimes it feels like she isn’t really my friend but she’s just using me and sometimes I feel like i’m putting her friendship to me above God but I don’t want to totally reject her. It’s hard making new friends when there’s a limited number of people in my school. What should I do? 🙁

I know exactly how you feel!! My best friend and I have known each other since Elementary school and ever since about 8the grade I’ve noticed that it’s almost like she only wants to be my friend when its convenient for her, which is what it sounds like your friend is doing as well. We are Juniors in high school now and it has taken me this long to learn not to let the things she does bother me. It sounds like your friend is kind of selfish, and this friendship is a little bit one-sided. The best thing that I have learned is to just simply recognize the things that my friend does that hurt my feelings, and take it as a lesson not to be that way to anyone. God doesn’t want anyone to give up on their relationships with people, so it makes total sense why you still want to be her friend. You are not crazy! It is best to continue to forgive her, but don’t let her get under your skin. In God’s eyes, you are worth more than that. If I were you, I would pray for this friend and for a stronger relationship with her. It might also be helpful to let her know that you still want to be her friend, and you still care about her. This might help her realize that she actually wants a good friend like you. Matthew 6:14 says “For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.” I hope this helped!
