Girl drama. Middle School Girl DRAMA. *sigh*
It is like this chronic epidemic with no cure, no vaccine.
He told her she said.
She told me that she said that you said. I saw her do it.
I didn't do that!
You promised me to not tell anyone else!
Somedays, I just want to take the entire lot of them and lock them in a room together until they sort it all out.
Parts of it are natural. Adolescence is a time of transition, of learning who you are, learning who you relative to others, especially how you fit into the social pecking order. Toss in a few raging hormones and the drama seems inevitable.
Other parts of the process, at least to those of us on the outside, trying to keep the peace, or at the very least, trying to keep the educational process moving along while keeping the girls from clawing each other to death.
I still remember 5th grade, getting into a fight, yes, a FIGHT, with my bestie. I have no idea what we were fighting over. Something mundane, unimportant, stupid, pointless.. but at the time, worthy of a nail clawing, scratching match that left us both bloody and scarred.
As an adult, it is easy to forget the mindless anger. It is easy to poopoo their disagreements, tell them to IGNORE each other, remind them NO boy is worth losing a good friend over....
But in the end, the girl drama rages out of control. *sigh*
