In the past sixteen years I have faced various challenges that have molded my personality to as it is today. I went through a very tough stage in my social life when I was in grade seven and eight at the age of twelve and thirteen. I had a group of five friends outside of school, we were always together and they were all very close to my heart. It came to the point where three of the girls decided that they did not want to associate with one other, and I was forced to choose between the three of them and the other girl. It was a feeling of indescribable disbelief and I did not know what to do.
This one incident was a challenge that I had to overcome.It all happened so quickly. One minute she was our dear friend and the next minute everyone was yelling at her. At first I stood there and listened. I did not utter a single word. And then, in the heat of the moment, I began saying things to her. I didn’t even know where any of it was coming from.
There was a pause, and that was when I realized what was happening. A friendship with someone so close to me was about to end. I couldn’t understand why I got involved. Although I did not say quite as much as the others, I did say something. I had hurt my friend.
At the blink of an eye, she was not my friend anymore and I knew things would never be the same...
