Well, I have this best friend of ten years. We haven't been best friends for 10 consecutive years, but we've known and associated with each other for that long - to say the least.
This girl is NEVER (ever ever ever) happy for me in life. She only seems to let off positive vibes into my life when I'm down and out, and when she's in a "better" spot than me in life. We seem to have a falling out at least twice a year, and no matter what, if she apologizes... I will always forgive her and we'll be friends again. Until the next episode. I know you're thinking the same thing I am right now: why won't I just end the friendship and never speak to her again? It's seriously that hard for me. Because she's a best friend, when we go long periods of time without speaking, I miss our friendship and the fun times we spent together! I guess I'm seeking advice on how to end this relationship for good, without making up and acting like her behavior isn't an issue. Also, what she does that bothers me the most, is involving herself into my life to the point of basically wanting me to live my life based off of her point of views. I've asked her why she does this, and she says it's because she "cares" and my other friends/family who don't share their opinions of my life "don't care"... it doesn't make sense. She comments on my job as a personal assistant saying my (male) boss is a pervert for hiring me. He's an older, single man, and I told her he probably hired me because I'm a female and young. She comments on my friends, because they like to drink and go out recreationally. She comments on my past, because who doesn't have a perfect past? All of her comments usually start through social media. I'll send out a SnapChat of myself at work, or ask her to go to lunch on Facebook... and she'll reply saying, "I have a normal 9-5 job, I can't just take a lunch whenever." She'll say my job isn't "normal," because I don't have a set 9-5 schedule. Anything I bring up mostly having to do with my job, boyfriend, my son... will trigger her bitchy attitude.
I am trying to figure this all out... do you ladies think this is jealousy? Does she have other issues? I just don't get it. And I'm almost positive she started acting like this when I healed from my past, and my life started getting better. She was just a best friend at one time... it all just really hurts my feelings.
