    So there's two girls I go to sixth form with, and right now they hate each other. They've had arguments and the college has told them they're not allowed to speak to each other. My problem is I'm completely stuck in the middle, trying to be on both their sides. I don't wanna fall out with either of them because one of the girls I've known for years and I'm good friends with her and the other will make my life hell if I'm friends with the other. So basically when I'm with either of them I have to act like I'm not friend with the other. It's so hard and I don't know how to deal with it without getting into the drama. Either way I'm gonna end up looking two faced. And it's affecting college massively, I have bad anxiety and literally cannot concentrate when all of this is going on. Any advice?

    If your only incentive to stay friends with one of them is she'll "make your life hell" then that's not really a good reason to be someone's friend. Don't let other people or fear control you - and she's doing exactly that if she won't let you be friends with someone else. She sounds petty and it should be none of her business if you want to be friends with someone she dislikes.

    Stay out of the drama. Don't engage in conversation with one about the other and if they try to initiate it bring up something else to talk about.
