Dear Chatty Kathy,

My friend always borrows my clothes and books and never gives them back. I don’t want to ask her to give them back because I don’t want to seem rude and that I don’t trust her. Should I just leave it alone?

Sincerely, Missing Items

 

Dear Missing Items,

If she is your best friend then she won’t be offended if you ask for your things back. If your items that mean a lot to you and you really want them back, then ask for them. They are your items and she might have just forgotten that she has them in her possession. It won’t break your friendship up and she won’t be hurt that you want them back. Don’t be worried about your friendship; if you have the trust to lend things out then it is already a strong relationship.

Dear Chatty Kathy,

My boyfriend told me that I can’t talk to my best friend, who happens to be a guy. But we’ve been best friends since the sixth grade and I don’t want to lose him as a friend. He means a lot to me, what do I do?

Sincerely, Torn Teenager

 

Dear Torn Teenager,

If your boyfriend says you can’t talk to your best friend because he is a guy, you should dump him. He can’t control every aspect of your life and if he wants to limit your friend group then he is a good for nothing loser. Or if you want to stay with your boyfriend because you like him a lot, then you should talk to him about trust and the fact that he can trust you while talking to your best friend. You should not give up your friends for your boyfriend that is extremely unhealthy. Your best friend is an important part of your life and your boyfriend has to accept that because he should want you as you come, and not try to change you.

Dear Chatty Kathy,

My parents have always had really high expectations for me, and I just don’t know if I can continue living up to them. I’ve been trying really hard to do well in school and help out around the house, but no matter what I do it just isn’t enough. I feel lost and don’t know what to do. Help me.

Sincerely, Distressed Damsel

Dear Distressed Damsel,

I can guarantee that your parents are proud of the person you are. If you’re really as dedicated to your school and home as you say you are then I’m sure that your parents recognise the effort you put in. Sometimes parents aren’t great at saying what they mean and they find it hard to say the things that are worth saying. But you have to know that they care about you and they want the best for you. My advice to you is to take things one step at a time. There is no sense stressing yourself out about expectations that you can’t control. Do your best because when you are doing all that you can do, people will see that and no one can deny your effort and dedication.

XOXO Chatty Kathy
