My BFF blames me for everything!

My BFF and I have been fighting. She picks the fights but tells her mom everything is my fault. Now, her mom treats me differently.

Sounds like something’s going on with your BFF, and she’s taking it out on you. You’ve become her emotional punching bag, and that stinks! Is she struggling in school? Is she jealous of your good grades or new BF? Is she threatened that you usually click with her mom? Maybe she doesn’t know how to appropriately express her emotions. And if something’s upsetting her on the home front, she might be trying to get her mom’s attention—even if it means dogging you.

Most likely, she’s not even conscious of what she’s doing. Regardless of her motives, you can’t be too surprised when her mom runs a little cold around you. It’s only natural for a mom to side with her daughter. That said, you need a BFF-break! Don’t place blame—just suggest some time apart until the storm blows over. Hopefully, your BFF will realize you’re trying to set things straight for a long and lasting friendship.
