I new my friend is toxic and apparently our friendship is dead but two days ago it died but when she said I hate you because she met another girl who WANTS to be her friend and she really knows nothing about her because she’s awful but really when she said it earlier I was like😁 thank you so much this is the best day of my life because she met someone else to abuse I mean I obviously felt bad for the new girl but she is pretty tough so I think she’s fine

For me, it’s nothing my friend does, I just don’t always feel confident and comfortable doing thing around them. Like she physically tackles me, in a friendly way, but I tell them no, but they doesn’t always listen. I also just feel uncomfortable around her, and I don’t know how to say no. And my friend group is six, also I am always picked last for groups. I really just don’t know.

one of my friends, (i'm in a friend group of 6) has been really toxic over the past few months, and to everyone in the friend group. she is very busy, so sometimes she can't make it when we hang out. she will then get mad/jealous that we hung out without her, even though she was invited, and was the one who said she couldn't go. She is also overly clingy and gets jealous easily, and it's in a hypocritical way. If me and my best friend hung out, and we mentioned it to the group in an offhand way, like providing context for a funny story, she will get mad and text us paragraphs about how she feels excluded and that we are being toxic friends. but, she will tell us all about places she goes with other friends.

now for this next part im going to provide a bit of context. i am 14 years old, and currently enrolled in one of the electives at school called studio music. its a high school level course, (I'm in 8th grade) and we both take it. Since u only take it for a half a year, and we were not in the same class, she took it for the first 20 weeks of school, and I'm now taking it for the last 20 weeks of school.

ok thats it for context, time for the story lol.

now during lunch the other day, we were having a friendly argument about which studio music class was better. she was saying it was her class, because they made a song for their final project that was amazing. (and im ngl its pretty good.) but she didnt help with it at all, and yet she was making it sound like she was a part of it when she wasnt. it was 3-4 boys in her class that made th song called "Fauci Gang." she talked about this, and a number of other funny things that were made in her class, which she had nothing to do with. this started out as a joke, a funny conversation, and she took it very far. eventually we moved on and talked about other things, but everything that we talked about where she was apart of the conversation, was about her. i started telling a story about something that happened to me and my bestie, and she cut me off and started talking about her studio music class again. like jeez girl give it a break.

One of my best friends betrayed me and always put their partner before me. They were toxic and pretended to have disabilities for attention. (Depression, anxiety.) And when I broke it off, they told everyone I was ‘faking’ slitting my wrists 😀👍 what a wonderful friend!

I took the quiz and my test results said toxic I mean I haven’t seen them in almost a full year so yeah but the thing with was she was Autistic and she was a foster kid her parents both died but that’s no reason to treat someone the way she did she triggered my Anxiety a lot I mean my best friend does now but in a good way like Excitement and so I felt bad for her as much as I was angry at her but now I go to a different school but I am kind of worried about her Because when I last saw her s…she tried to k kill her self She was suicidal I don’t know how to describe the feeling I felt when she put the rope Around her neck she shouted at everyone saying take one step near me and I’ll do it just out of shock of the situation I can’t actually remember how the teachers Dealt with it but I was so glad it’s over😞

By the way my "best friend" also made me hate myself and how i looked and laughed at my smile, she also makes me feel like a third wheel because on her old tiktok account she made a video with me in it about her bestie named kind, and about how great she was.. i cried for weeks.. this hurts so much :( we've been friends for 7 years and she changed me to hate myself and be shy and anxious, i told her that i was getting depressed and she said she was going through more then i could! Also she says my b--bs are smaller then hers and her butts bigger, that made me insecure so much that i just dont wanna exist.. HELP my fortnite user is: AnimeMiss, btw. And she tried to make her mom threatan me about tiktok she doesnt like me havinng social media but SHE can even though shes my age, she is making me not be friends with 13 year olds saying they can change me even though she already did AND im turning 12 this year. She is manipulating me but i already found out a few months ago. She doesnt want me to have a social life she wants me to be with her FOREVER 24/7 I play with her everday bc ik i'll feel bad if i dont

Just read through sad girl (11221)'s comments and girl just ditch her. From what you've said she's the very definition of toxic. You don't need that energy in your life and you can get so many better friends who actually treat you right. I'm sure that friendship between you and that girl ain't worth all this stress so just cut yourself out of it while you can.

I want to get away from my friend, but I can’t because ALL my other friends are friends with her and we’re a “group”. What should I do?

She also has this serious hate for this one guy that likes her. Like she calls him an 🍑 hole and says go to hell. i don’t hate the guy but i feel like if she had the opportunity, she would k1ll him.
