How do I tell my friend that I don't want to be around her anymore?

DEAR DEIDRE: I WANT to dump my friend but don’t know how.

We’re both 18-year-old girls and met two years ago.

The more I got to know her, the more I realised she wasn’t a nice person.

She is selfish, can be bitchy about other girls and says things that hurt my feelings.

My mum says I should distance myself from her but it’s hard with social media.

She asks why I haven’t messaged and I don’t know what to say.

DEIDRE SAYS: You don’t have to stay friends with someone who makes you uncomfortable simply to avoid upsetting them.

If she asks why you aren’t getting in touch, say you don’t feel your friendship is working out but you wish her well.

My support pack on Standing Up For Yourself explains how to talk to her without causing offence.
