Just Make it Stop

The other day I experienced something that I assume everyone experiences at least once during their lifetime.
I was ditched.
Long story short, I was left behind because I was with a friend that my other friends are not particularity fond of. Actually, they all hate her. Since they didn’t want her around, we both got blown off. One of my best friends said she was going home, when really an entire group was hanging out.
This puts me in a classic teenage-girl scenario: Do I ditch the girl the girl that’s holding me back from hanging out with my other friends? In a movie I would, but this isn’t a crappy chick flick. Of I won’t leave her, because that goes against basic human morals. What sort of person would I be if I compromised a friendship, that is definitely a top “no-no” in the girl code.
I am furious with my other friends for placing me in the predicament, as I often put up with people I do not enjoy being around for the sake of the group. This whole situation has me thinking about how horribly teens treat each other, especially girls. I am constantly afraid that my friends don’t actually like me, which is not a feeling you want. However that could be a direct result of my own paranoia and trust issues (which actually stem from the way an old friend treated me freshman year).
I realize this makes my social life seem a lot rougher than it is. I do have friends that I have complete faith it, but when they pull stunts like the other night it messes with my head. I am not really sure how to wrap this up, but I’d like to open this post up for discussion. I’m sure others have been in similar situations and advice is always appreciated
