Is it normal to dislike my friend

my friend has a very tragic life, y’know the typical bad childhood- shitty parents and stuff and of course i feel bad but i do offer a helping hand time to time for when they need support but they are so emotionally attached to me now that when i forget to respond to a text for a day they bitch and whine about it. i tried to explain very nicely that i can’t carry all their burdens because i’m dealing with my own shit and that my life does not revolve around them and they always victimize themselves and apologize over and over again but still not do anything to change their behavior. should i just cut all ties? i’m not sure what to do about this.

Is It Normal?

  • That kind of behavior indicates abandonment issues and very low self esteem. Sometimes people in that stat just need to have their lives shaken a bit, but it's a risky move to just cut them off. Try helping them get some more friends, then once they've got some, tell them that you need to take a break for a week. See how it goes and hope for the best.

  • Yeah its normal but then you should probably cut ties unless you're temporarily just annoyed at your friend for being clingy, in which case you could explain that you need some space sometimes. Your friend should be able to understand you have a life of your own and can't be available all the time. If your friend refuses to accept that then you definietely cut ties.
