Question : So, a friend of mine posted a status update on social media that left me feeling really offended. We had a fight right after that and I said a few mean things to him online, which was about a week ago. We haven’t spoken ever since. We’re part of the same friend circle and connected on social media but he doesn’t respond to my messages anymore, though he makes it a point to reply to my other friends’ messages. I’m feeling bad about all that has happened and would like to patch up. What do I do now? Please help! Teentalker , 15-year-old
Thank you for reaching out and sharing your concerns. It seems like the misunderstanding you had with your friend has been bothering you for sometime and has left you feeling visibly upset.
At this point, the ideal thing to do is have a face to face conversation or talk on the telephone and try to sort out all your differences. If you feel however, the person is not ready to talk to you right away, then you might want to wait for a few more days before getting in touch. When friendship is for real or ‘true’, misunderstandings and arguments are likely to occur. What matters the most however, is if you’re willing to clear all the misunderstandings, forgive one another and move ahead with your friendship. Only then you can build trust and intimacy in your friendship and build a relationship that will last for many years to come!
