Is it okay that i'm jealous that my friend is talking to someone else more?

I have this friend named Elena. She's been my friend since 3rd grade, I'm in 8th now.
Anyways, sometimes she ignores me and talks to other people. When I ask her if she wants to sit with me at lunch, she says she going to sit with Riley or someone. So I asked if I could sit with them. She said yes, and then she stopped talking to me the entire lunch period. The next day, she talked to me in the morning, and then she ignored me again.

At lunch, I asked her why was she ignoring me, and she said she had to go to the restroom, and then she didn't talk to me for the rest of the day.

At art class, we divided into groups of 3 and 4. I got placed with Elena, Riley, and girl named Melina. Melina asked who do you think is the stupidest person in the class, and Elena and Riley said that I was the stupidest. I got angry and jealous but I didn't do anything.

After that, i started ignoring her, and she got angry. Is it normal that I'm jealous she is ignoring me?

Is It OK To?

  • id confront them and how it makes you feel, if their response is cold/shallow then you know that they arent much of a friend but if its warming and they understand then hopefully they will regard you and involve you in more convos

  • She knows what she's doing and while I hate to judge people, her motives are probably not kind. Give yourself time to grieve her, then out of kindness to yourself, find another friendship group. It seems like the hardest thing to do in the world probably but I wasted so much of my adolescence hanging onto every word of this girl who was the leader of my friendship group, who repeatedly invalidated me whenever I tried to get close to her. If I could go back and talk to my eighth-grader self I would point her in the direction of all the other 'outcasts' of this girl's clique and tell me to listen to them. The most obvious way not to waste your life in this situation is to tear yourself away from this toxic person and find another way to get your relational needs met. You don't know it but these years are important in shaping the kind of adult you'll become. Don't throw them away.
