Rumors and Drama!
The other day one of my best friends told me a rumor that my other really close friend had started last year. She had only told about three people, but it was something that's really awful and not true. I'm really upset about it and can’t stop thinking about it. Plus the friend who started the rumor still acts like my friend and like nothing is wrong. I don't know what to do! Also I promised the friend who told that I wouldn't say anything because she swore she wouldn't, but she just cracked. I'm not into all the girl drama or whatever, I don't like talking behind other people's backs or starting fights. Please help! – Haley, 15, New York
Just ignore them. Pretend that you're invisible or start up a different convo. It might annoy your friends to pretend that what they're saying isn't bugging you, but it will help you. Block it out, and you'll be fine. – Alexandra, 13, ColoradoHaley the best thing for you right now is to stay calm. Don't blow things out of proportion. Remember, this happened last year. The way I see it, you have two options - either let it slide, or just ask. Let your friend know what’s on your mind and be careful of what you say. You don’t want to make things worse by adding to the drama. So talk it out if you have to. But seriously, this rumor is at least six months old, right? Girl, that is so yesterday. Either no one cares, or no one thinks it’s true. As for the rumor starter, just remember that you can’t trust her, and don’t tell her anything you want kept a secret. For that matter, don’t tell any secrets to your friend who cracked, either. Start a diary if you want a secret kept. The minute you tell someone else a secret, it isn’t secret any more, no matter who you tell. – Amanda, 17, New Jersey
