Am I over reacting..? - May 9th 2010, 02:39 AM

Okay, so my best friends, like literally the girls I told everything to.. we were so close. We had a friendship I never thought was possible. We promised each toher we'd never be involved in drugs and alcohol. Seeing I had a really rough past with that in my family, I wanted nothing to do with it. So my friend started dating this guy, and both of my best friends went and got high with him. I forgave them and they promised they'd never do it again cause I meant more to them then drugs. Then while I was in the hospital on suicide watch out of all things, I hear they got high while I was in there. I confronted them about it and sure enough they did. I told them I didn't want anything to do with them and completely cut them out of my life. I feel so betrayed and hurt. But now people are saying it's stupid that I'm mad and I'm looking for more attention. What do you think?

And she fights so you won't ignore her,
'cause thats her biggest fear.


Keep your head up gorgeous,
they'll kill to see you

They say the people you hang out with effect your personality and how you grow up. If you don't want to hang out with people who do drugs, it's fine. Of course, I'm not saying people who do drugs are bad, but I wouldn't want to get into a situation where I'd be in danger. I don't think you were looking for attention at all. They broke a promise, which shows they're probably not reliable.

You're not overreacting, I honestly think it's a great thing you cut them out of your life. You don't need bad influences like them in your life, especially when it will only hurt you. Congrats on being strong enough to realize that you don't need them. Keep up the good work and stay positive!

They might have felt a bit "lost" and in a confused state of mind because of your suicide watch. The other thing they might have just taken advantage of you being in the hospital, which sounds a bit more likely I think.

"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.

When you were in the hospital, perhaps they felt that you had broken your promise also so they may have viewed their actions as being acceptable in terms of your relationship with them (i.e. they broke theirs, you broke yours so the promise isn't acknowledged by anyone). If they haven't broken other major promises and were your friends for a while, then it seems unreasonable to think they're unreliable. Perhaps they do like the illegal substances they were using and continue using it for that reason but if you still like everything else about them, then it seems as though you over-reacted. I have friends that drink like a fish and use substances, although I steer clear from the substances and most alcohol because I do not wish to use them. Despite that difference, I'm still friends with them and others who also use no substances because we like each other despite not being all identical in our likes/dislikes.
