oooooohhhh boy, in a word? Everything

 

Insecurity and jealously i feel play a huge role in causing problems within friendship groups. Like if one person feels like they're at risk of being ignored, they might encourage everyone to exclude or tease someone else instead Smiley Sad Also from memory dating rivalry can cause huuge rifts within and between friendship groups!

What types of things can cause drama within/between friendship groups?
I think jealousy often plays a big role in drama amongst friends. I've also experienced things like misunderstandings, ghosting, feelings of exclusion, people taking offence to something and betrayals. Something I've also experienced is friends not understanding or relating to your situation and not knowing how to be there for you.
