I can't stand most of my friends. - October 4th 2010, 08:22 AM

They're immature, they're petty, they bicker over stupid things, they talk behind my back, but they're the only close friends I've got.. and it's getting to the point were I am starting to really hate most of them. They carry on live ten year olds. I'm not perfect, but I'm not as argumentitive and bitchy as they are, and it's really starting to get to me.
what should I do?

Ignore their useless bitching? Find new friends? If you're not happy with them, speak to them, if this doesn't work there isn't really much you can do about it except stop hanging out with them...

I know exactly what you're going through, I went through it and my younger siblings always come home telling me about this problem. They're also about your age. Sometimes it's just because of middle school, usually people will just always be like that. So, you should probably talk to your friends about it because if they really care about you then they'll try to change. If they don't then it's time to really find new friends, it's not worth it to have people around you that always tear you apart.

It sounds like you are growing and changing and their not. No matter what, you can't change people. You can change how you view them but you can't request someone to change and they say.."ok, sure...anything for you!"
If you don't like the way they are then either you have two choices...accept them as they are and for who they are or move on to friends who may be more aligned with your personality.
I went through this not too long ago. I wanted things to change in my life and I began to realize that my friends weren't making me feel good when I was around them. I felt frustrated and hated doing the same old, same old. They were negative and always were complaining about something. So, I decided that I wanted to change my friends. It wasn't easy because I then started feeling alone and had no one to hang around. Then I would hang with them again...and the cycle started all over again. I finally made up my mind for good. Took my "alone" time and decided to get clear on what I really wanted out of my life and who I wanted to be...once I did that...then I began finding friends (one by one) who also thought the same way and enjoyed the same things...
Change is difficult but when you commit to it...it is for the better...

Hope this helped...

A lot of girls you're age just do act the way that your friends do. There's not too much you can do about trying to change them, they are how they are and unless they want to change then they're not going to.

If you can't stand most of your friends, then they can't really be good friends to you. And not really worth hanging out with. Maybe you should try to widen your circle of friends and meet some new people. Even if it's just to find new people to spend time with to give yourself a break from your bitchy friends.

Take care.

If you feel comfortable confronting them about their immaturity, feel free to do so. If they don't approve and respect you, feel free to not be their friends. I'm pretty sure you can find people you can connect with.
