I am that friend....
Yes. Eventually his negativity ate into the friendship and it was him who couldnt hold on to the friendship anymore. It was consuming him.
Oh, a lot of blame games. Eventually, although I cut me off, it is him, who pushed me out.
I was always making excuses for him, lol. Dont know why.. because he was also consuming me in his negativity.
They are too self centered to realise, other people have feelings as well, and too egotistic to realise how lucky they are to have good friends standing by them :) But yeah, not my problem now, and never again. I learnt my lesson the very hard way. I hope you are not scorched in any way :).
Somehow, it feels so much better to know I am not alone, lol.. although I wouldnt wish this on anyone. At least someone can relate to me, and I to them, in this aspect. Yes. I also felt so obliged, as if it was my fault everything in his life was wrong, and in the end, he didnt really appreciate much.
Still talk but never too often anymore.
Yes, my old friend Holly was a Debbie Downer. <br />
It sucked. After about a year, I just couldn't handle it anymore and we started to drift apart.
Yeah, didn't last very long. I found I started to distance myself more and more and eventually we just parted ways
I had a sister in law who was like that. Even when things were at their best in her life she was negative and down. I was pretty happy when she moved far away after she and my brother got divorced.
Yeah, we sort of started talking less and less until we stopped talking altogether
I had a negative friend like that.. and then she turned on me and her constructive criticism turned into criticism. She was miserable and wanted everyone else to be miserable. I have her calls set to automatically go to voice mail and I rarely return her phone calls. I don't need a toxic person in my life.
I couldn't agree more!
