Hey there, welcome to Ask Alex,

Friendships should be built on trust, respect, and kindness, so it’s understandable that you wouldn’t want to be friends with someone who has been mean to you. It might be helpful to have an open and honest conversation with your friend about how you feel and why you’ve made this decision. Good friends should understand and support your choices.You may find this article on the Childline website helpful before you talk to your friend
