They’re Going Down That Dead in 3 Years Path

Dear Youth Ambassadors,

I have friends who fight a lot, but I’ve known them since elementary school started.  I keep them as my friends even though they’re going down that dead-in-3-years path. I’m trying to make it out, and all they’re worried about is who’s mugging them. How should I handle my friendships?

Sincerely,

They’re Going Down That Dead-in-3-Years Path


Dear They’re Going Down That Dead-in-3-Years Path,

All you can do at this point is tell them the right way and let them choose. Don’t force it onto them. Especially teenagers. They are going to do what they want. You must offer them a new way of doing things. It’s up to them whether they choose to take the right path or not. It seems as if your friends’ relationships are eating at you. So you hanging with them is risking your life as well. You might get sucked in. Don’t let it get you down. Let your smile change the world. Never let the world change your smile. Your friends are going to do what they want. Also, most people that fight want to see a crowd. They love the crowds and attention. But if they want to survive and make it to college, they must change their ways and motives. A wise woman once told me, “In order to lead an orchestra, you must turn your back to the crowd.” What it means – that’s for you to know and them to find out.

Love,

Your Friend


Dear They’re Going Down That Dead-in-3-Years Path,

If those are your friends and you really care about them, you should maybe try to get their heads on straight and focus on something else in life other than fighting. I used to be a fighter back in middle school, but once you grow up and really mature you’ll see it’s really not worth it. There’s way more to life than that. It’s really stupid and childish, especially if it is based on how someone looks at you. Just try to get them on the same maturity level as you. If it doesn’t work, you may have to leave them behind.

Sincerely,

A Fellow Youth Ambassador


Dear They’re Going Down That Dead-in-3-Years Path,

I feel that you should tell them how you feel. Tell your friends that you are trying to make it out of the bad and into the good. Tell them about how you feel about them fighting, and if they don’t understand what you’re saying or appreciate what you’re trying to do then they’re not your real friends. Just leave them alone.

Sincerely,

Your Classmate and Friend
