Help please. - May 2nd 2010, 07:59 AM

This past year, I have let little things get to my head that my best friend says. It's ridiculous. And it gets me very upset, and I do not know why I break down but I do. I hate it, and I can't help it.

And another big cause is that he says I am changing but I don't realize it. I want to be the same me and every time he brings it up I have another break down.

I have this sad nights, almost every night, some days I fall asleep crying others I just don't sleep. What's going on with me?

And the other thing is, why do I care so much about the little thing my bestfriend has to say? We're close as fuck, and he's like my brother. But he influences me so easily. I don't know if I get jealous when he's chillin' with someone else, or if I've just grown so attached to the dude I can't leave him.

I understand the second part of this is off topic for this forum section but to save time I tossed it in this thread.

Hello there,
If he is your primary friend and you don't have many others than what he says could be magnified in your head because since he is really trustworthy, or you have some sort of feelings for him, you are giving what he says additional significance. Or this could be some sort of anxiety. My best recommendation would be talking to him about your feelings if you feel comfortable doing so, then he should be more sensitive toward them.

Hey there,

It’s not surprising that what your friend has been saying has been upsetting you and so it’s not ridiculous. If your friend keeps constantly saying nasty things to you then however small or insignificant they sound they are going to begin to build up and have a negative impact on how you feel and your relationship with him. I think that one of the best things you can do is talk to your friend about how what he is doing is making you feel....He might not be aware of how it is affecting you.

I think it sounds like (and I might be wrong) you are worried about you and your friend growing apart. Maybe that is the reason you worry about what he has to say and that you worry when he says you are changing? I don’t know but I really think you need to talk to him, whether that be the case or not. Maybe having someone else you can talk to about this as well will also help.

I hope things get better soon
