GIRL TALK: Are They Really My Friends?

My friends always ignore me.  Whenever I talk to them they never listen to me.  Today I said they were being mean to me and they just shrugged.  What should I do?


Are these girls really your friends? They don't sound like it. Its horrible to be stepped all over but even worse when its your buds doing the stepping. Speak up. Let them know that you feel ignored/neglected/unappreciative. Make sure you're objective and mature about it. It is easy to come off sounding whiney. It is also instinctual for them to feel like you are attacking them. Nobody likes being called a bad friend, even if is true. If they continue to act like they can't even see you, find new friends. I know its easier said than done, but in the end it will be so much better for you emotionally. You want to be with people that appreciate your greatness and want to have you in their lives. Friendship is about sharing a bond that goes deeper than the average connections with other people in the community. It doesn't sound like you have this with them.
