When Jean-Eduard was in fifth grade - before his middle school years - he had a best friend, named Matthew, who he loved hanging out with. They hung out all the time, ate lunch together every day and had a great friendship.
However, something happened to Matthew that had a very negative impact on their friendship. Matthew's parents got a divorce, and it was really difficult for him, so he drifted away from Jean-Eduard and started isolating himself. Jean-Eduard wanted to help Matthew and save their friendship, so he decided to talk to a counselor about the situation. The social worker advised Jean-Eduard to talk to Matthew and show his support, so Jean-Eduard decided that was exactly what he was going to do.
Jean-Eduard approached Matthew and told him that everything was going to be okay and that things would get better overtime, but instead of appreciating Jean-Eduard's support and friendship, Matthew got very angry. He got defensive and told Jean-Eduard that he didn't know anything about the situation.
Then, his anger turned to violence. He threw Jean-Eduard into a tree and started hitting him. A teacher spotted the altercation and ran over to help Jean-Eduard, and she carried him right to the nurse's office. He was covered in splinters and bruises, and his mom was devastated when she had to pick him up from school.
Jean-Eduard had to miss two weeks of school due to his injuries, and when he came back, Matthew was nowhere to be found. It turned out that, because of the fight, Matthew wasn't allowed to come back to school for the rest of the year, and get counselling.
Even though Matthew had hurt him, Jean-Eduard was still very upset to hear the news. He couldn't help but think back on all his good times with Matthew, and although he regretted the way things ultimately turned out, he did not regret trying to help Matthew. Instead of looking back and saying to himself, "My best friend turned on me," Jean-Eduard was proud of himself for doing whatever he could to be a supportive friend.
