If they upset you, you need to think about yourself first. Simply put, they're not worth it if they make you feel this way. They're not even worth your time. If they can't be nice to you, no one says you have to stick around them! Don't feel bad about moving on, it's not your fault they act this way and you're much, much better off without them. Spend time around the people who treat you right and forget the others.

Here anytime you want to talk about anything, take care. <3

thats not wrong. if you feel guilty about it then just take a break for a little while then come back when you have a better hold on the situation. but if your absolutely sure, then you have every right to. you shouldn't be in unhealthy relationships. and getting rid of those people will help make your life happier

pm me anytime. i'm always here!!

I can definitely relate to the way you're feeling right now. It doesn't seem like you're very happy with people right now; I feel the same way. It's not a nice feeling, isn't it? One thing I've learned is that people are very different. You're not going to like nor get along with many people you meet and you'll just have to accept that, despite how difficult that may be to fully comprehend.

People make mistakes. I'm sure you know that. Maybe you need to just get away from it all. It's June and school's coming to an end very shortly, if you're not on summer holiday already. Take the summer and spend some time doing things that you like to do, with people that you enjoy spending time with. If you need a little bit of 'alone time', go for it.

You can't just completely block everyone out of your life, no matter what happens. Believe me, I've contemplated the same thing millions of times; in fact, I was contemplating that exact premise earlier today. Things seem to be falling apart for me and today pushed me off the edge. But you know what? In my current state, I realized that no matter what happens, you can't just block people out of your life. It's much better if you learn to deal with things and take each day one day at a time.

I know things can really knock you down sometimes. It is during these kinds of times when you ask things like: Why do I even bother trusting people if I keep getting hurt? or Why do I even try? I always fail anyway.

Keep hanging in there, Matt, and remember that you're not alone. If you ever need to talk, feel free to give me a shout any time.[:
These are typical ways to think after we've been knocked down. We've all been there, Matt! One of my favourite lyrics from a song states that we find strength in our moments of weakness. It's so true.

I agree with everybody here. You have a right to get away from people who make you feel bad, but don't unnecessarily isolate yourself from society. That's called withdrawal.

I'm a high school student in Canada, so I talk from experience. Also, don't unnecessarily try to get revenge. People hurt each other because they are hurt, so don't spread the hurt. I know that's hard to do, but the world isn't just "good guys" and "bad guys"

I'm rooting for you to conquer this problem! Wish you the best.

My advice would be too block them if they are upsetting you. Its a different matter if its say, your best friend who has said something upsetting once, and you think they will apologise, but as you say they find it impossible to be nice, I am guessing this has happened many times. In situations like these you really need to put your own feelings first, and also show you can't be walked over.

h is a bluebird that you see from afar
it is real and as sure as the first evening star
can't touch it, or buy it, or lock it up tight
but its there just the same
making things turn out right

We've all been in THIS situation before. =P

If you have "friends" who are causing you more stress and grief than they are giving you feelings of joy and love, then by all means, cut them out of your lives! People change, and friendships change. If you aren't compatible with them any longer, it's time to move on. You're not obligated to continue spending time with them.

Just like what PSY said, you don't have to remain friends with people if you don't want to. My mom always says, "they're all you have left!" but really, you can get farther alone than you can get with these 'friends' you speak of. They're just holding you back.

if they are upsetting you they are not doing you any good tell them they are upsetting you and if they dont change maybe then say i am not going to hang around with you anymore, as you upset me and see what they say to that. ignoring them might also work.
