Well, im fifteen year old girl.
I've had this imaginary best friend since forever, we talk about everything. He used to be so nice to me. Making me smile when im sad, calming me down when im mad, making me fell just so comfortable. And he always had a sparkle in his eyes when i was happy. I love that sparkle
But now, for some reason, he is so mean to me. Hes making me cry, and laughing about me for crying. Hes scaring me. Hes telling me what to do, bad stuff to. And he lost the sparkle.
Before i used to be able to make him disapper whenever i felt like it.
Then he would only go away when my family members steps in the room.
Now he just wont leave.
I wouldnt mind it though, if only he wasnt so mean now!
Why is he so mean now?
And what can i do to make him more nicer?

This can be a syptom of a serious mental illness. I think you need to talk to a trusted adult about this and try to get some help the sooner the better. I only say this because I think it's the best thing.

Having a mental illness does not mean you're crazy. I have a mental illness and I'd say I'm not crazy for sure.
What you're describing is troubling to you right? And you can't make it go away on your own right? Then by your own logic wouldn't the next step be to ask someone for help?
Why don't you ask an adult for help? I'm sorry to say but there really isn't anything anybody over the internet can do to help you in any sort of situation unless you're willing to take the advice we offer you and act on it.
I know if may seem hard, but believe it or not I was where you are now at one point. I know it's very hard to ignore what he's saying and do what you know is best, but you'll have to try. And if it doesn't work the first time, try again, eventually you'll get through to someone and you'll be able to get the help you need.

I wish you the best of luck,
Rick

I'm not saying you are crazy, not at all. I have hallucinations (which I'm not saying you are) that are very real to me and they say very mean things to me and tell me to hurt myself and other people. I'm not saying that seeing a professional is going to make it stop but it will help. I don't know of anyway to help you with this situation over the internet.

Heyy there.

As people have already said, I believe that asking for help from somebody in person is a big step towards making him stop being mean. Having a mental illness doesn't mean you're crazy in any way shape or form. It simply means that, like any physical illness (e.g. a cold, the flu and so on) you need treatment to make you better. Just because the symptoms arent on the outside doesn't mean it's any different. It's still an illness, and should be treated with anything a professional can offer for it.

If he's upsetting you, you need to ask someone you trust to help you with this. You shouldn't have to feel so upset about something like this. Like any friend, he should be nice to you if he's going to be there, and since he's real to you (if not to anyone else) he should be making you smile right? If you miss this sparkle, ask someone to help you so you have create your OWN sparkle, because they can be just as forfilling as an imaginary one.

Seek help and I wish you all the best for the future. <3
