AnonymousDear Juliet, My best friend seems to have it all. I compare her to me every second of every day. I parade my superiority, but, in all reality, I’m about as insecure as the next girl…and it turns out the next girl is REALLY insecure. It’s almost like everything is better when she isn’t around. That’s not how things should be. This isn’t a friendship…not on my side.I just want a best friend that won’t make me feel mediocre…or inferior in any way. I just want to feel good..
A best friend is always supposed to be there for you and is usually the person you go to when you have problems. Does your friend know how you feel? Is she doing something that makes you feel this way? If she is, you should let her know. If you are her best friend, she will try to change her ways. Unfortunately, everyone does not stay the same and friends change from time to time. If you talk to her and you continue to feel insecure and inferior in any way, it may be a good idea to start meeting other people. This does not mean to stop talking to your best friend. It just means to make new friends and still keep in touch with your best friend. Instead of comparing yourself to your best friend, try thinking of what makes you unique and beautiful. No one should feel inferior to anyone. We are all equal and should all be treated the same. I hope everything works out. Write back to us any time! Good Luck and Thank you for submitting.
