I moved to a new city before I started fifth grade, so I was very nervous when school started. I met a few people that would eventually become my friends, but there were two girls that I became a little closer to. When I started sixth grade, I went to a middle school that was also attached to a high school. I would ride the bus with these two girls and high school students, and I was always so nervous to be around these older kids. As the school year went along, everything was fine, and I hung out with these two girls all the time. I thought we were really good friends. Later on, I started liking this guy, and eventually my friends told me that he liked me, too. They told me that I should write a note to him and tell him how I feel. I was so nervous because I didn't know if he felt the same way, and I was too scared to tell him in person anyways. I took their advice and came up with the courage to write about my feelings. When I finished, my friends told me that they would give him the note. I soon discovered that these so called "friends" of mine were just pulling a cruel joke on me. They took what I said and laughed about it, and I remember right, I think the boy that I liked was in on it, too. Of course, this was almost ten years ago, so I can't say with certainty if he was in on it or not. Regardless, I trusted these girls and I thought they were my friends, but they really weren't. I was just entertainment for them. Also, there was an older girl that came up to me one day while I was at my locker, and she started cussing at me and saying that I was talking about her behind her back. The funny thing was, I didn't even know who this girl was, yet she wanted to kick my ass. I guess someone was just spreading rumors that I was talking about her because they wanted to see something happen to me. Anyways, I just calmly told the girl that I didn't even know her, and that I wasn't saying anything about her, and eventually she just walked away. I don't know what drove these girls to do what they did, but I'm just thankful that I moved after sixth grade because I started a new school and made new friends. I don't think I would be where I am today if it wasn't for moving. If you have "friends" like this, they are not your friends. Don't accept this kind of behavior as friendship, and never let people like this get the best of you. You are better than that. Just stay strong and don't let them see you falter. It will all get better. Trust me.
