ok hi guys. im 13 and i have a 2 main bestfriends, i love them and appreiciate how helpful and kind they are because where i live, its really hard to find people like them. but my other 'bestfriend' is very popular!!! sometimes i get jealous but i dont let it get to me. anyways sometimes we argue , not alot but she always acts like she doesnt care, or gives an attitude or like i tell her sometimg funny she says " lol . " i hate that -_-!!! well but we are sorta really close friends but i dont know if i can call her my bestfriend. whenever i get angry at her i dont reply to her messages. but i cant help not talking to her because she understands well. but my parents dont let me hang out with her because they think shes a bad influence, but i dont think she is. we fought yesterday but we sorta talked today, i guess everything happens for a reason, do you think i should let her go? iv only known her for a year thought, thanks guys sorry for making it long ! bye

I've had a similar situation like this when I was 14. I had 2 girls who I considered my best friends. One of them, my dad told me to stop hanging out with her. I loved her so much and she was there for me so many times. I was upset and I didn't want to listen to them.
But I did listen to them, I didn't hang out with her anymore. I would still say hi and be friendly but I didn't hang out with her or consider her one of my good friends.
Now that I look back, I realized they were right. Even though she wasn't that bad of a girl, she wasn't the best influence on me. She caused a lot of drama and at 14, I didn't need that.
So I do think you should let her go, your parents see things from a different view. They're not super close to her like you are so they can see things you can't. You can still be nice to her and say hi and maybe talk every once in awhile but don't hang out with her anymore. [ lightoftruth's advice column | Ask lightoftruth A Question ]
