It's about my bestie.We've been best friends for 4 years now. Recently she's made a new friend which is girl who has badly mistreated me in the past. She had spread nasty rumors about me and stuff like that. I don't have any problem if my bestie hangs out with her but she's been pressuring me to join them. She knows I'm not comfortable around that girl but she simply doesn't want to understand even though I've been telling this to her for days now. What should I do now?

Hey Sitaraa,

I feel like if you really have told her multiple times that you're not comfortable hanging out with this other person then perhaps she's not going to listen... I'd say the choice is completely yours...

You can do exactly what you want and not spend time with the person who bullied you.

I understand that maybe this might be a strain being placed between you and your best friend, but this is really a strain she is placing on you, and not the other way round... this might be something that changes your friendship, but caring for yourself is only something that I feel can help in the long run improve your friendships, and help you avoid being treated badly.

Thanks, i guess that's the only way out of this situation. I thought of it a few times myself but the thought of our friendship getting strained put me off. But now I guess i'll make it clear to her that she can't pressure me to hang out with someone against my will.
