Dear Belinda, Im 14 and my best friend is ignoring me.
We usually do everything together but now she wont
talk to me or even look at me. I feel awful. What can I
do? Kate.

So if I decided to answer Kates letter, Id probably


start by asking her some questions. How long have you
known your friend? Has anything happened recently? For
example, has your friend started to hang out with other
people? Even though we often think we are the problem,
quite often the problem has nothing to do with us.

Id also probably suggest giving her friend some space.


In situations like this, its often good to find something
else to do. If you spend all your time thinking about the
problem, youll only get more upset. If you start doing
other things, however, youll quickly be able to see
whats really important to you.

But the best way to solve a problem is to talk about it.


We often think no one will understand us if we tell them
a problem. Thats simply not true. Problems usually
wont go away unless you talk about them. I should
know. Ive had this job for more than ten years now.
