Dear Johnny,

I have two friends who have been constantly bickering for the past two months. I’ve been trying to remain in neutral territory but now they want me to take sides. I know that if I take one side, the other friend will disown me, but if I don’t take either side, both friends will just fade away. What should I do?????

~ Feeling Conflicted

 

Dear Feeling Conflicted,

Honestly, tell your friends to quit fighting about silly things. Tell them that you love both of them equally and that you can’t imagine your life without them. If you need ideas about expressing your feelings like this, just go watch a teen movie when best friends say cheesy dialogues to each other. Just kidding! The correct thing to do would be to come out and reveal the truth. The truth is a fact, not an opinion and it will make the situation clearer (trust me on this).

If you don’t want to tell them to stop, you should honestly pick a side. The worst thing that can come out of this situation is that they will both fade away most likely for a period of time. But you guys were friends for a reason! If you guys were seriously meant to be friends, then they will come back even after they faded away.

It is okay to be afraid of having to choose sides in an argument, especially when the people on each side are close to you. However, it is better to be honest and tell them how you feel about this fighting instead of being quiet and letting the damage become worse.

Hope you feel less conflicted, Feeling Conflicted….

Best of luck,

Johnny the Jet
