I don’t like my friend with mental health issuesWatch
Aim to spend less or no time with her. And spend more time with other people.
Your health and safety are the most important things in your life. Do whatever you can to enhance and maintain them.
Your health and safety are more important than any individual friendship. So if you end up sacrificing this friendship; so be it.
You come across as someone with a lot of social empathy. That's good. Channel this social empathy in the right way and you can look forward to a successful and fulfilling life.
Aim to think less and do more. With time, as you build up life skills you should get better at launching yourself without hesitation into doing stuff.
So recently my friend (not really friend kind of but not really) has told me about her mental health issues and her social anxiety and things that worry her. I completely understand her and supported her but whenever I give her advice she just talks over me. Every time we are together all she does is talk about how depressed she is or when people come into the room she says things like oh no they’re looking at me and is all off and anxious all the time. Which is completely fine I understand this happens but I feel like it’s rubbing off on me. I used to be such a confident and happy person but whenever I’m with her I feel sad I overthink everything and generally I just feel down. All she does is talk about herself and once I mentioned something about me she went straight back to herself about her anxiety. I will be there for her but it’s just annoying how that’s all she talks about, doesn’t let me speak and the fact that her symptoms are rubbing off on me. Is this selfish of me to think like this? Because every time I’m with her I feel like I’m at rock bottom and every time I advise her she just doesn’t listen
