How can I stop being offended by my friend?
I have a good friend who sometimes says things as a 'joke' but it offends me to the point where I just walk off but later I feel stupid and bad for reacting like that. I've improved recently and I've stopped walking off but I still get kind of offended. Today when I walked into a room, two of my friends were there, the friend this question is about made a disgusted face and said: 'eww (my name) is here' then she laughed and said 'i love you ... but I love her (the second friend) more'. Then she laughed again and said she was joking. I kind of fake smiled and she noticed and laughed saying to the other friend 'i love how she doesn't know how to act'. That offended me a bit as I'm currently studying drama at school because I've thought about maybe going into acting in future but I'm already lacking in confidence about my acting abilities. How can I stop being offended?
