I Don't Like Critical Friends

A place to discuss difficult friends. 60 People

    Critical Friend

    I have a friend who has many flaws, yet she is consistently critical of my life and me. In my opinion, her life is a complete disaster. Yet I am always a positive force in her life. I make optimistic comments. She, on the other hand, has no problem telling me most things I do are...

    What a Drag!

    I use to have a critical "friend" growing up! She was not pleasant to be around, because everything I thought of or said, she had some negative response to. I had gotten an invitation to be a model, when I was a teen, and ran to tell her... big mistake! Her...

    Life Is Too Short

    Constructive feedback is very different in nature to the mean spirited put downs and cleverly disguised remarks of a verbal sniper. Life is far too short to try to please the people for whom nothing is good enough. Around my being I choose to blanket my heart and hold close those...

    Adressing The Constant Critic

    To my friend, a constant critic who's driving me nuts: I have a feeling whenever I'm with you, and that is I wonder how long will our friendship last. I feel I'm under constant criticism with you, mostly based on nothing. I've let most of it pass, because I'm not a rude person...
