Friend doesn't understand my life

I have this friend who is very negative.

Whenever she texts me, if I don't answer her right away. She assumes I ignore her and don't care about her. I repeatedly told her that how busy I can be. I also explained that sometimes I spend time with people without my phone. However she thinks that I'm always with my boyfriend and how perfect my life is. I immediately get mad at this and tell her that none of our lives ain't perfect. Eventually I told her about how this made me feel, and what did she do?! Continue to put blame on me! Then I made it clear that if she was to continue this, we could no longer be friends.

Note: this person doesn't have many friends.

On that topic though, once she texted me about her rough day and how lonely she is. I wasn't available to hang out because I had things to get done. Suddenly, an idea popped into my head! I went on a website for a local gathering and thought I could help. It turns out she took it as an insult and again saying I was such a bad friend urgh >:(

Anyways enough rambling, should I end the friendship because of this negativity?

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • Yes, end the friendshipfor your own good.

  • Honestly, as someone who also is a paranoid personality like her, she's totally in the wrong. She needs to learn to realize that that sort of behaviour is very wrong, and it is NOT your responsibility to "teach" her. I understand how she feels, but this is not okay.

    TLDR; I wouldn't stick around.

  • Next time she texts, just wait for whatever amount of time and text back, "sorry, I had something more important going on, now what did you want?"

    Some people are just needy.

  • She probably scares everyone she meets awake with her emotional blackmail, and lame attempts, at manipulation.

  • It's hardly surprising she doesn't have many friends: who want to put up with all that manipulation and neediness?

    I'd end it, unless you enjoy negativity in your life.

  • She’s emotionally manipulating you, and by golly it seems you are becoming aware of it.

  • Okay, you told her how you feel so she shoulda understood but has she ever told you how she feels? maybe isolated and ignored by you?

    • The thing is that I chat with her every second day. So it's not like I ignore her

      • Okay then yeah thats a problem, i mean if you didnt talk to her for a few days then you would emotionally detaching yourself from her, but youre not.. yeah she is probably ungrateful tbh, and when she finds a boyfriend she would probably do the same

  • Well I don’t understand why you care about her opinion.
