I have several friendships in my life that are one sided where they require emotional support from me but can never give it back. I'm not exactly a 'needy' person, but certain life events have meant I have wanted to at least have the option of emotionally available friends.
I've blamed them for a long time but looking at it, its me with several one sided friendships and I'm clearly doing something wrong. How do I end this cycle? What am I doing wrong?

Try and focus on them a bit more. Don't be repetitive about the issues you have in your life.
People get frustrated when it always seems like it's about you etc
There isn't really much else to suggest, people will struggle to understand unless they've experienced similar.

find happiness with being yourself and learn to not be self conscious for being alone. Be your own 2-sided friendship, and through that you'll learn which people are best to make friends with.
The people who you make 1-sided relationships with are insecure of themselves and do not value you over them fixing their problems.

It's them. Not you. I've ended (although, it's more complex than that) friendships partly because of this.
