Dear Ben,

I have been struggling in friendship with my best friend since 2nd grade. He left the school some months ago and is homeschooled, he no longer texts me only the days he wants to and when I ask him why he says he’s on Snap more. but why can’t he just text me if I’m his best friend?



Dear Struggling,

To all the fake people out there, this is for you.

Fake people take a lot of energy to deal with. It’s hard.

To deal with them, you don’t. Fake friends aren’t forever. They are only temporary, not permanent. More people care about you than those who only treat you for materials or gains.

At the end of the day, you have a life to live. You shouldn’t worry about other people treating you wrong when you realize that you’re not even going to remember them or see them again.

Fake people never started fake. They once had a friend that used them as they used you today. It’s a chain. But chains can be breakable.

Fake friends are terrible, yes, but there are people out there that care about you.

Those who treat people like that, it must mean that you’ve been treated like that and accepted the fact that treating people like a tool is normal.

I’ve experienced this plenty, but I don’t let that get to me.

People don’t shape me or make me. I have control over my life.

You make your life decisions. I don’t. Your peers don’t. Your teachers don’t either.

A new beginning starts now my friends. Just remember, the next day is a whole new day. If you need any more life advice, take my survey.
