I became really close with a new friend this year. We talked about everything, laughed and spent most of our time together. Lately, things seem to be a little tense. She's got an edge to her now and I've noticed a little bit of competition between us. I am so sick of all of the bickering we are doing. We used to be best friends. What happened and will it ever go back to being the same? Stumped Sally
Dear Stumped Sally
Sometimes competition develops between friends. It seems like the jealousy is coming from her and not from you. The best thing you can do is talk to her about trying to get your relationship back to having more fun and not fighting as much. Try and have a little honesty session with each other and see what happens.
