Do not start a fight over social media: This may seem like the right idea but it will cause more problems in the long run. Bring up your conflict in person in a mature way and your life will be so much easier.
Try not to over exaggerate: Is it true or relevant? It’s important not to blow things out of proportion so you can deal with your problems before they get too serious.
Apologize if you were in the wrong: Be the bigger person when necessary. Accept it if you are incorrect.
Try to keep the issue between the people it concerns: Unless something is harmful to yourself or others, You shouldn’t drag people who aren’t involved into your drama.
That being said, find a mediator: Therapists, school counselors, teachers, parents. If you have an ongoing issue that you can’t fix yourself, find someone that you trust that is unbiased to listen and help you figure things out.
Do things that keep you down to Earth: Do something that makes you happy and relieves stress. Just process everything and make the best decision you can.
Cut off sources of drama if needed: If you are in a toxic friendship, being connected to that person does more harm than just letting go. Trust yourself and do what you think is best. If you can’t come to a place of peace, get advice from a mediator. (see below)
