Well, here is my problem at school. I'm a popular kid and a lot of kids know me, and I hang out with the popular kids. I have another friend that is like a normal kid at school. The problem is that sometimes the popular kids make fun of my unpopular friend and they want me to join and make fun of him too!
I feel really feel bad about the unpopular friend. I have to chose between making fun of my unpopular friend and losing my friendship with him, or helping my unpopular friend and then losing my popularity.
WHAT SHOULD I DO?
If your friends cannot be friends with this other friend then they are not friends to you or to the unpopular ones. They are very shallow and I think you should spend a little more time with this "unpopular". How would you feel in her place -not good I think and the same goes for your popular friends.
The "unpopular" may a be a little shy and she feels left out - what a feeling! Terrible. Show these popular friends that you can be friends with everybody and tell them that. In friendships there is an exchange of ideas and you can all learn from each other. Try it - you sound like a nice person and I think it will help you as you grow up and mature.
Nice hearing from you.
