Jealous Friend

Jealous Friend
My best friend gets jealous when I get something like class president. What should I do?

Reply from the Highlights Editors
Perhaps your friend is feeling unsure of herself. Try talking to her about how you feel. Start by letting her know things you think she is good at. Then say something like, "When good things happen for you, I'm glad about it. It would mean a lot to me if you could try to be glad when good things happen in my life." By talking and listening to each other, you may come to understand each other better.

Best wishes,
