We decided it would be best if we talked to her about it. It was really hard because I don’t like confrontation a lot and I really wanted this girl to feel welcome. In spite of these feelings, we brought it up to her and tried to come to an understanding about the whole situation. She understood our side of things and let us know she was just making a joke and had no malicious intentions.
I forgave her for making these jokes about people, some of whom were my friends. We still treat her kindly regardless of the past. She said things she didn’t mean, and we all talked about it, sometimes behind her back. It took a lot to forgive her for hurting someone’s feelings in the way that she did. Now I am friends with both of them and have gotten over what was said in the past. I have fun showing with both of them and we are all friendly
