with friends like that u dont need enemies
quit hanging out with them and find new peeps
People who are mean to you and treat you badly are not your friends. A friend would work with you and help you to improve your game. We all have different skills. Maybe there is something that you can do that your friends can't and you could help them and show them the way a real friend acts
Well I guess this is growing up *dun-nah-nun-nah-nun, dun-nah-nun-nah-nun, dun-nah-nun-nah-nuuun*
Anyways, enough of bl
But yeah, I guess thats what sports ego's do to people. I like playing football (soccer if you're american) but because I was never really good at it or popular like some I was never allowed to play.
Best thing you can do is go shoot some hoops alone and get really good and shock everyone when they see how good you are then reject them for what they did.
Dont say anything they will just razz you more...Just tell your closest one hey man can you help me improve my game so these douchbags will get off my back?
grow some balls and pay them out about something its what mates do
Stand up for yourself and tell them that they're taking things too seriously. Sure it's alright to be competitive but no at the expense of friendship. (yeah, tell them something along the lines of what I told you)
Dont do that you will make them think you are a whine ***..
If he truly wants to be confident he shouldn't care what they think if they're putting him down. What kind of friends are they if they do that with no remorse?
