I’m addicted to her

I’m studying in Std IX. I have been best friends with a girl since 2015. But recently she said that she doesn’t like me at all. I am addicted to her and think about her every day. We often fight with each other. It’s been 2 months that we haven’t spoken to each other. Once upon a time we used to be good and best friends in our class. I don’t know what has happened to her. I can’t concentrate on my studies. I think about her always and want to be with her. What should I do?

Dear Arun, try to find out if you have hurt that friend of yours in the past, because now she doesn’t like you at all. If it is your fault you have to apologize and rebuild her confidence in you. You are now often fighting with each other and have not spoken for the last 2 months. You cannot force your friendship on anyone; be frank, honest and sincere in dealing with her and let her decide if she is interested in continuing this relationship. It is up to her to decide if she wants to be with you or not.
