    Hey all,

    (Please keep annon as a few of my friends are on here and don't want to share this personal issue with them).

    I was spending the day with one of my close friends (probably the closest friend I have) and we got into a discussion on each other's bad traits. I'm pretty honest and I said one of mine is that I can get a bit jealous/envious when she spends more time with someone else other than me. I don't tend to show that openly at all, which is why she didn't know about it till now I guess. And obviously, I would never stop her from spending time with other people. I've got no right to do that. She put it down to me being possessive and made me out to be a control freak which I don't think I am.

    This has upset me big time. I didn't sleep a wink. All I keep thinking about is how she made me out to be such a bad person. I thought she would know that I'm not anything like that. I don't want to bring up the issue again with her because she's going to only think worse about me and I'm more likely to come off as the control freak she described.

    I have never before and never will tell her to ditch her friends or ask her to spend less time with them. Its just I can't help how I feel. Anyone else in the same boat, help me out? Please.
