My friends feel that I’m ignoring them

I’m a student of Class 9. I love my friends but they feel that I’m ignoring them, but I know I’m not. If I’m with one of my friends, the other gets upset. I just don’t know what to do.

Dear Gladys, put on a smile and be available to talk with any one of your friends. Tell them how happy you are to have good friends in your class. If you talk and spend most of your time with a particular friend, the others may feel you are ignoring them. Do not worry too much about what people feel about you; what really matters is that you are a good and loving person. They will appreciate your approach and may change their attitude.
