    When Jean-Eduard was in fifth grade - before his middle school years - he had a best friend, named Matthew, who he loved hanging out with. They hung out all the time, ate lunch together every day and had a great friendship.

    However, something happened to Matthew that had a very negative impact on their friendship. Matthew's parents got a divorce, and it was really difficult for him, so he drifted away from Jean-Eduard and started isolating himself. Jean-Eduard wanted to help Matthew and save their friendship, so he decided to talk to a counselor about the situation. The social worker advised Jean-Eduard to talk to Matthew and show his support, so Jean-Eduard decided that was exactly what he was going to do.

    Jean-Eduard approached Matthew and told him that everything was going to be okay and that things would get better overtime, but instead of appreciating Jean-Eduard's support and friendship, Matthew got very angry. He got defensive and told Jean-Eduard that he didn't know anything about the situation.

    Then, his anger turned to violence. He threw Jean-Eduard into a tree and started hitting him. A teacher spotted the altercation and ran over to help Jean-Eduard, and she carried him right to the nurse's office. He was covered in splinters and bruises, and his mom was devastated when she had to pick him up from school.

    Jean-Eduard had to miss two weeks of school due to his injuries, and when he came back, Matthew was nowhere to be found. It turned out that, because of the fight, Matthew wasn't allowed to come back to school for the rest of the year, and get counselling.

    Even though Matthew had hurt him, Jean-Eduard was still very upset to hear the news. He couldn't help but think back on all his good times with Matthew, and although he regretted the way things ultimately turned out, he did not regret trying to help Matthew. Instead of looking back and saying to himself, "My best friend turned on me," Jean-Eduard was proud of himself for doing whatever he could to be a supportive friend.

                    Literally tried talking to my friend who's dog just died and he got all defensive and saying, "HOW CAN YOU BE SORRY? YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW HER! IT'S NOT GONNA BE OKAY SHES GONE!" and stuff like that. I tried to him down and hugging them but they got even madder and punched me and gave me a shiner. It hurt so bad and I literally ran and sat in the girls restroom for 2 periods then went to the office. They were yelling at me for skipping until I took my hand off of my face.

                          Something like this happened to me. Except, without the violence. My best friend, let's call her Alyssa, got really mad at me for no reason. She just stopped talking to me overall, and ignored every text I sent. Now, I used to live in Missouri, and recently moved to Pennsylvania. Alyssa got really mad at me and started guilt tripping me for staying. At the time, I had another friend. Let's call him Noah. Noah and I met July 28th. Me and him were inseparable. We loved each other like crazy. So, when I told Alyssa what had all happened, she said - and I quote - "you're switching between guys too fast." I didn't think much of it, she said it all the time. Now, Noah came over again August 6th. Me and him were outside on the benches close to the time he had to leave. He said - "I really want to do everything with you before you leave." I said same. We did some stuff and since I told Alyssa everything (I don't lie) she got really upset and said "you're too young to have that happening to you". I got really mad at her, but I decided not to tell her how I felt and just apologized. About 10 days later, August 16th, Noah came back again. This time my grandparents were home. Me and him hung out the entire time outside. I was texting Alyssa while I snuck off to the bathroom. I told her to be quiet, because Noah was over. But enough about him, Alyssa is the subject. She got really pissed off. She said "you don't let me talk about my feelings, you only care about Noah and you're replacing me." This was NOT true. I told her that I don't replace people, and if I were to, I'd tell you. She called me and yelled. Yelled and hollered. I don't take yelling lightly, so I started crying. She said some choice words... the next day, I was really upset. I was in my room talking to Noah (he couldn't come over anymore because we got in trouble (they caught us doing stuff) so that's why I was sad) and I couldn't stop crying. Because of that, and what Alyssa said. I posted something on my social media, I said this isn't a true friend. Me and Alyssa has quite some history. We've been friends throughout everything. It's hard when a best friend leaves you. I felt like she left me in a ditch like I was nothing. Yesterday, she posted on her SM. She said she was feeling good. I said "that's good, what are you feeling good about?" and she yelled at me once again to stop talking to her. I didnt know what to do at that point so I more or less gave up.
