The world is moving forward and leaving me behind. My friends are replacing and ditching me. I am down to one friend, but she is new and I don’t know her all that well. I haven’t spent much time with her. I am lost and don’t know what to do. What do you think?

Dear Lost Girl 101,
A lot of kids have your problem. I have encountered it many times myself. I think you should keep spending time with your new friend, but also try and make new ones. A great way to make friends is to join clubs. That way you will meet people with similar interests. Friends with interests that are similar to your own are easier to have because there is something that you can talk about that both of you will be interested in. If that doesn’t work after awhile, you can talk to Mrs. Logsdon or Mr. Langlund. You can form a group with them and other students where you can talk about any issues you have and get advice from her and students other than myself. Good Luck!
Also, if anyone sees any person, in school or not, that seems lonely, go over and say hello to them. Sometimes it only takes one word to brighten someone’s day!
