7 Pieces Of Advice On How To Deal If Your Best Friend Finds A New BFF

I have a little confession to make. When I was in the seventh grade, I actually ditched my best friend so that I could fit in with people in my new class.

My bestie and I had only met on our first day of middle school, but by the end of the year, we were like sisters. We were super close and we told each other everything. But then we moved on to the seventh grade and we got put in different classes. And while I quickly moved on and made new best friends, I could see that she was still feeling sad and really lonely. But you know what’s even more messed up? I didn’t even try to do anything about it. All I did was say “hi” to her dismissively while I spent all of my time bonding with the people in my new group. Talk about cold.

But looking back, this is not something that I’m very proud of. I was basically being the worst friend because I didn’t even consider how much I was really hurting her. Even now, I still feel guilty when I think about it. And when I finally experienced what it was like to have a friend ditch me, I thought that it was karma kicking me in the butt for ditching my own best friend in the first place. I felt so useless and unwanted, and it was basically the worst feeling ever.

So it’s safe to say that I’ve been on both sides of this experience when it comes to losing your BFF. But let me make this clear: Having your best friend ditch you is one of the most painful and heartbreaking experiences ever. I mean, had I truly understood how much this could really hurt a person, I definitely would’ve done things a little differently back in seventh grade.

If you’ve even been through this before, or if you’re dealing with a best friend who ditched you for someone else, then take a look at these seven comments from our readers on how to deal if your bestie finds a new BFF.
