Jaime is my friend since third grade and she seems to always be talking bad about other people. It's not just gossiping, but she will actually put people down and make fun of them. I don't want to be around that kind of negativity, but I also don't want to lose my friend. What should I do?

You could talk to your friend and explain how their behavior makes you feel. It's possible that they don't realize how their words are affecting you and others. If the conversation doesn't go well or if your friend continues to talk negatively about others, then you might need to take some time apart from the friendship.
