Thank you for your reply. If I was to pull them aside and ask them to stop, how do you recommend me to do it? Should I just ask them to stop and that's it? Or should I explain why its making me upset? I've never really been comfortable with opening up to them because if I do they get competitive and try to be 'more depressed' than me.
"it’s better to be happy with no friends, than hang around people that make you feel bad about yourself."
This sentence really got to me. I've always been dependent on people in life, and I'm scared to be alone. But I'm also scared to see them. Do you think that, despite my dependency on company, I could be happy alone? I guess i could be, but I'm just scared of what they'll do behind my back.
I really just want a friend who gets and accepts me for who i am. How do I find that?
