Dear Carol

"Dear Carol, My BFFs hate each other. Help!"

Dear Carol,
Have you ever been in the middle of two friends? I have two friends, and they fight so much. I'm always in the middle of it. I hate it, but I love them. What should I do?
–Monkey in the Middle

Dear Monkey in the Middle,
I hear you, I really do. But the world is not made up of just three people—it's a big ol' crowded place. Step back and be friends with each girl and stop thinking of yourself as wedged between them. Tell them you're happy to talk with them about anything—except how annoying the other girl is. And reach out to other girls, too. All this triangle stuff will get much easier soon, so hang in there!
