Motivational Stories on Friendship – CLICK TO COMMENT

By Yael Abramowitz If you are feeling left out of a group, what do you do? Do you try to befriend somebody in the group? Which girl do you choose? The most friendly girl? Probably not. Most likely you will befriend the most popular, stylish girl. After all, she is the one who will help you ‘fit in’. At recess, you play the games that she plays. At home, you call her to chat. On your way to school, you go out of your way to pass by her house – just to say hello. Finally, to your delight you’re ‘in’. The next year, the classes are mixed. You’re in the opposite class of the popular girl. You’re the cool girl in this class. Suddenly the old popular girl is forgotten. She starts to wonder if you ever liked her. You’re not perfectly happy – why? Perhaps – no, definitely – it’s because you don’t have a real friend. No one understands you.
