I have two strong Christian, best friends in my school. I am a Junior in HS, and it has taken me FOURTEEN YEARS to find these two girls that make me feel like I belong somewhere… except lately, they haven’t.

Hello again 🙂 Thank you for your advice. I do have quite a few really strong Christian friends that I met at this camp this summer… but they all live far away. I just wish that I had friends- true friends- here where I live… ya know?

I totally understand! Can you keep them up with them on phone or email?
|October 13, 2016 at 11:33|
Yes! We text constantly 🙂

Oh my gosh, having friend struggles. I’m dealing with that so much! One of my close guy friends now has a girlfriend (who actually has the same name as mine but a different spelling), another is on the football team (and I don’t get to hang out with him a lot), and one of my close girl friends basically has a different personality than me. I really feel like I’m going to do something and lose them.
In Proverbs, it is said that “a friend loves at all times…” (Proverbs 17:17, one of my all time favorites). If your friends really seem to think that you’re a lesser friend than the new ones, I would suggest talking with them honestly, or slowly lowering the friendship to a “just friends” level. If they decide to leave you, they’re the ones missing out. It is not your fault! I hope this helps!

I actually have trouble following my own advice. Life gets me down WAY too easily. I’m trying to realize that they will not leave me, but through different events, it’s been really hard.

I completely understand! I often give a lot of advice but I never follow it myself and people around me are like what are you doing girl lol. You got it! God’s got you

Hey. I need some help too, my friend is a strong Christian girl but she is doing somethings a friend should never do. A little backstory: I first meet her in third grade and we have been friends since then. Back then we just had each other and we always had each other’s back. Now we are freshman in high school and I still have her back but I don’t think she has mine.
She comments in things she knows I am sensitive about and talked to my then boyfriend now ex about our relationship and tried to control it. It seems she always tries to one up me and is sometimes jealous. Then she separated some of our friends and made them choose sides. We took a little break and that seemed to help but now she is getting on my nerves again .
I now don’t have a best friend and I haven’t had a true best friend in along time. I have a group of really close friends but they all have one person in that group that they are closer with. I tried to seek a new girl as may best friend but she found someone else. Now I don’t know who to go to and I am afraid I am losing them all.
