My friend embarrasses me!
I like this kid who I’ve known forever, but lately, my friend Sam has been doing all she can to make me blush or even be embarrassed in front of him. I don’t think he notices, but I still feel self-conscious about it. What if he does notice? — Aly, 14
Candace: You should talk to your friend and be honest with her. Make her aware that what she is doing makes you feel self-conscious and bothers you. Also, it is possible that since you like this new boy, Sam is feeling worried that she won’t be your closest friend anymore. Assure her that your friendship is really important to you. Friends should always be kind and lift you up.
