Not long ago, our very own Life with Lauren wrote a blog about Surviving a Friend Break Up. If this has ever happened, you realize how devastating it can be. It is one thing to be rejected by a date or even a boyfriend, it is another to end a friendship with someone who has been by your side for years. Knows all of your passions and fears. Your deepest, darkest secrets. Knows the REAL you.
So when we received an email from MTV about casting a new episode of one of our favorite shows, True Life, about this very topic, we knew we wanted to help out. If this has ever happened to you and you want to share your story, read below and contact them. Let them know we sent you:)
ARE YOU BREAKING UP WITH YOUR BEST FRIEND?
Are you having a conflict with your best friend? Do you feel like your
friendship might end because of it? Have you been best friends with the
same person for years, only to find yourselves becoming frenemies? Are
you so upset about your best friend’s recent behavior that you’re thinking
about cutting him/her off? Are you and your best friend fighting over the
same boy/girl? Has your best friend all of a sudden started ignoring you?
Did your best friend recently do something that hurt you? Is your best
friend holding you back?
If you appear to be between the ages of 15 and 22 and have answered
‘yes’ to any of these questions, MTV wants to hear your story. Please send
your name, number, location, a photo, and a brief description of the
problem you’re having with your best friend to:
About True Life:
“True Life” has been on MTV for over ten years, and it covers important
social and personal issues for young people in a straightforward, empathic
style that respects its participants and its impressionable viewers. Our
style allows the young people to tell their own stories, in their own voices,
without a reporter or narrator. We simply follow them through their lives, without
affecting their choices in any way, and we capture real life as it happens.
Our goal, as with all episodes of True Life, is to put young people across
the country in our subjects’ shoes. We hope that, by portraying the most
intimate moments of our subjects’ lives, we will help young people
understand complex personal and social issues.
