The last month… yeah, it’s been full of drama. Although, that’s not so unusual, especially for 8th grade. And honestly, I just want it all to go away and everything to go back to normal. But I guess life doesn’t work like that, huh.
There’s so much stress, drama, tension. I just dunno, but I think my life’s been pretty screwed up for a while. If you don’t want to read about my depressing day, feel free to click off this post. Warning: there will be slight swearing, apologies in advance.
Anyways… let’s go over the brief scenario of what’s going on. Actually, there’s two stories, so I’m only gonna tell the first in this post, probably the second in another post to keep this from dragging on… which I’ve inevitably been doing for the past 3 paragraphs.
Basically, there’s a huge group of friends, and we all love each other like family. Everything was goin’ great for the first half of the school year. There was minor drama in between, but it always got resolved. Although, most of the drama revolved around this one couple. Lots of people were against them being together, and lots were for it, which created a ton of arguing. In my opinion, they were fine together, they could do what they wanted, lived their own lives. Back to the point, these two girls (both of which were really good friends of mine and each other) got into an argument about the girl (let’s call her X) not spending enough time with everyone else after she got in a relationship. And all hell broke loose after that.
Now, this might be just a rumor, but the other girl previously mentioned (let’s call her Y) said that X would be the 2nd girl to get pregnant in high school after this other touchy couple at our school. Now, I know it’s a highly offensive thing to say, but Y claims to never have said anything like that. She did, however, admit that she was talking behind X’s back and apologized. There was crying and everything. She meant it and promised to never do it again… and she’s lived up to that promise as far as I know.
People who sided with X started calling Y a slut, whore, bitch, anything rude they could throw at her, even though X and Y had forgiven each other and decided to let the matter go. Except, with all this name-calling and rudeness, it seems people aren’t going to forgive and forget. I’m tired of all this fighting. Our awesome group has basically split up, and it’s depressing how quickly everything’s changed, how much tension there is between everyone.
Anyways, I love both of my friends equally, and I won’t choose sides. They both understand that I’m not choosing one side or another, but that doesn’t stop other people from thinking I’m a “traitor” and mistrusting me. This hasn’t been the biggest issue, but I’m hearing from both sides and everything I hear just makes me want to cry. I WANT to help my friends get over this, but I don’t know how. I’m trying to stay out of the drama part as much as I can, but I think it’s enveloped pretty much everyone to the point where it’s not even possible to “stay out of it.”
I have a similar problem with someone else, and quite honestly, that situation is really confusing for me to deal with. I hate how all of this friendship has been torn apart in a day, a simple few hours, in fact. Well, that’s about all I’ll say about this friend problem, and the next post might be more about my own problem with the someone else.
If you have any questions or somethin’ just ask below. Although I might not answer depending on what you’re asking.
