   Do you ever have best friends that fight all the time? I do. I don’t know what to do half the time. I usually tell them to stop talking and cool off, then I try my best to step in and fix it. Does anyone out there also feel like they have to step in and fix things? I have been fixing fight after fight after fight. The hardest part is when they keep fighting over the same thing. I do group chats and video chats to solve them.

   They won’t let me help most of the time but I force them. It’s harder to get them to talk when everything is over text. After the conversation on group chats I talk to them separately on text. They then sound find and usually cry to me, but then we are all good again, for a while. When friends fight it feels like you’re sucked into the middle. Honestly I like being in the middle of it because then I can see both sides and figure out a way to solve it. Like some sort of tiny crime scene. Gathering as much evidence as you can to figure out what happened and how to solve it.

   Most people try to avoid it and help out the best they can, but nope, not me, I jump right into the middle of it and make them stop. Usually they ignore each other for most part and then they start fighting again like 30 minutes or an hour later. I also make them hug it out if we are all hanging out. They yell at me and say no and stuff. I force them to talk all the time because I don’t have time to deal with it.

   Then you might have a fight with one of your friends, but the minute you need someone no-one is there to help you. What do you do? Well I try to work it out with my friend or I ask someone else for help.
