    I fell out with a friend in about November time because we didn't get along and we had major personality clashes. She'd openly say insensitive and cruel things, and the other friends in my group were beginning to notice. So we fell out because someone overheard me saying something and it got back to her. I realised that maybe I had been insensitive, even though what I said was taken out of proportion, and I apologised, and we agreed to go our separate ways.

    More recently I made a post on Facebook which her other friends saw and immediately thought it was an indirect dig at her, which it wasn't really. They started commenting on this post and calling me names and sending me horrible snapchats. The friend I fell out with isn't the problem - she wasn't offended. But her new friends are making my life a misery and it's really upsetting. Whilst my friends did defend me, it got really out of hand and I'm quite scared to go into school on monday in case they say something to me or start spreading rumours.

    But is this my fault? I know some people are sensitive about having opinions that are different to theirs. In the past I have been callous and mean (often not intentionally) but I have apologised to my ex friend and she told me that I had nothing to worry about.

    So, please, how can I deal with this? How do I stop her new friends from making my life an absloute misery?

    If they start, the just avoid them and let a member of staff know. They'll soon forget and move onto something else. :yes:.
