I don't know if it's ok, but I got mad and hurt because my bff (now ex-bff) slept with my little brother and introduce him again to drugs when he was really trying to leave that shit. Sometimes I miss her and think I overreacted and that shouldn't be a reason to end our friendship, but I don't really know how to feel about it. Pd: Now I don't speak to my brother because he hit me when he was in abstinence Pd2: sorry if I didn't express well, english isn't my natal language
Is it okay to drop a friendship with someone because they have an opinion about one single issue that you find totally not okay? Like, imagine a friend of yours said they don't think women deserve equal rights or blacks are naturally more stupid than whites while you hold the opposite opinion... I am in this situation now and while my other friends tell me to get over it, I just can't look at said friend without feeling repulsion.
It's official now, or as official as it can get. I have no friends anymore. Zero. Only good acquaintances. That's better than nothing. I'm quite sure that my old friends would still do me favours if I asked for it, or would give me a shoulder to cry on. That's also better than nothing. But I'm not invited to their parties by default anymore, they won't go out with me just for fun anymore, I'm not the person who they tell secrets to anymore. I don't have anyone to go anywhere with, or tell my secrets to. It's sad. I'm very sad. I've brought it all upon myself, and it was kind of inevitable, but it's still sad.
I'm a little jealous of my sister's body but she's jealous of mine. We don't resent each other over this or anything but it's still a bit unfortunate. We both know that grass always seems greener on the other side, yet we continue to feel envy. It's dumb.
Can't you see that I treat you differently than I treat everyone else? Can't you see how wonderstruck I am when you look into my eyes? Can't you tell that I melt whenever we touch? You make me feel so vulnerable and yet so safe, like I'm a child again with a schoolgirl crush. But I don't think you see it.
I hope my best friend's boyfriend knows how lucky he is to have her. I'd give anything to have a girl like her. I'm glad he treats her right, it's what she deserves.
I'm not social enough for friendships. The ideal friendship for me would be someone who I can summon only when I really need them (or when they really need me), to go somewhere to or to discuss a problem, no matter if that's once a month or once a year, and they're okay with not doing anything for ages, all while still being casual and intimate with each other as if we'd meet daily. But I've never met anyone ever who is okay with that, people always want to hang out frequently just for the sake of seeing each other... which is normal, of course, but I just can't do casual hanging out.
Why do people constantly preach about how you should remove toxic people and friendships that don't make you happy from your life, but as soon as you cut contact with someone, you're the asshole? Is it so unthinkable that YOU could be the toxic person for me?
Ah damn, I actually rely on imaginary friends to try and feel less lonely.
Somehow the modern phone culture destroyed my oldest friendships. My best friend since kindergarten suddenly turned into an instagrammer, and whenever we do something, we others or just I have to wait for her while she's taking some pictures for her story. Then I always sit there awkwardly, watching her taking a picture of her (very ordinary) coffee cup and finding the perfect editing tool, and I ask myself if there even is anyone who cares about her drinking a coffee while it's 7°C outside while she feels #blessed - but apparently she's sure that there are enough people who are more important than me in this moment. It's not really her fault, but I just can't identify with this culture. I don't want to talk about how many followers you should have to not be a loser, and I always find it very questionable when girls shame other girls for having one night stands but then go and post photos that are half cleavage or ass-pics in a bikini (you can guess it, she's one of those girls). My other best friend is another sort of "one of those": he's the kind who never answer your texts, but then when you hang out with them, they're always on their phone. You tell a story, they stare at the screen. They say " Oh yeah I'm listening I can multitask", but then you stop mid sentence to check if they ARE listening, and they just continue typing until, after a few minutes, they look up and say "Oh sorry, what?" The last few months I had better conversations with people I had literally just met a few hours ago than with my best friends, just because they can't keep a conversation up for more than some minutes until it's time to check the phone. I hate it.
