I feel left out all the time!

J-14 - - Real Life -

Q :

I al­ways see my friends post cool Snapchats and In­sta­gram pic­tures of birth­day par­ties and sleep­overs I wasn’t in­vited to. It makes me feel left out and bad about my­self, like why wouldn’t they in­vite me? I never know whether to con­front them about it, or just sort of let it go. Any idea of what I should do? — Camille, 13

Can­dace: Friend groups can be dif­fi­cult at times. Some­times when peo­ple are mak­ing plans to­gether, they are un­in­ten­tion­ally not think­ing about every­one. I would let your friends know that you would love the in­vite when they do things. You also can ask what they are do­ing on the week­end so it opens up the op­por­tu­nity for them to in­vite you. Do­ing this may help cre­ate more in­vi­ta­tions, but do make sure that you know who your true friends are.
