I was at school near the lockers and this girl came up to me and said,“Tell me why ‘so-and-so’ had your name in her mouth and said she was going to run up on you after school.” I honestly didn’t care, I was just upset that she kept talking about me. But I came to find out that she didn't say anything about me. Also, a few years back, a former 8th grader came to my class and tried to fight a 5th grader over a boy.
Students in middle school and high school go through a lot of drama when people lie on each others’ name. Basically, they do it by saying that another person said something about someone else. But in this case, I’m going to tell you about people saying someone said something that they didn't say. This situation can happen anywhere like school, outside, and over text. I think this is an important topic because it turns into fights and sometimes it becomes violent, and it should be stopped. An 8th grader once said,“Finding out someone’s fake after y’all was cool is was like talking to snake your whole life.”
If you have ever dealt with someone who came up to you and said that someone said something about you that wasn't true, you should honestly not pay attention to it because it’s a waste of your time. If you’re upset, I think you should just go to the person and ask if it was true, but don't say who told you because then it turns into more drama. Also, don't go up to the person who told you saying, “Oh, you lie too much,” or “You’re a whole lie I'm cutting you off,”etc. Just don't go up to them at all because obviously they do it to start stuff or to make you mad. If you ignore drama, you will be able to focus on your school work and anything you need to focus on. Also people won't see you as a drama addict (a person who loves drama). I personally have had a lot of experiences with kids who started drama with me, and I noticed that the more you keep to yourself, the less your name comes up into people's mouths.
