Friends


I'm having some issues in the friend department lately. It is an odd thing for me because both these friends have been close to me for a long time. It's not something that is seriously wearing on me, I just don't know what to do. Here are my issues:

-One friend basically does not seem to be considerate of me at all. Any opportunity this friend gets to sell me out, he/she seems to take it lately. I have been hurt by this friend several times in the recent months and each time has been because this friend has never thought how his/her actions or words might impact me.

-The other friend has a lot going on in his/her life and I am thrilled, but this friend keeps throwing things that aren't going well for me in my face. I feel like this friend tries to maintain some sort of power over me, rather than a equal friendship. I don't get it.

I wish I could say that I'm going to confront them, but I'm not. Luckily, I'm to the point in my life that I don't really care anymore. Yes, friends are very important to me, but it's easy for me to kick them out of my life because I don't need the hassle!

Well, I'm seeing a common theme here. You are getting walked on, you are taking it, and you are allowing it to continue without reacting to it. Sounds like you are inviting this type of behavior with the passive-aggressive way you are handling these situations. I'm no genius, but I would say that, at lease from these two instances, I see a pattern.

Skivy,
Who are you? Why are you hiding behind a private profile?
