I have a friend, more specifically two friends who I am considering ending the friendship with. One has changed from being someone who is fun to hang out with, to just a jerk. He thinks I’m his punching bag, yeah we screw around, but recently it’s not been a joke. I’ve tried getting him to chill, but he won’t. It’s not like I’m even provoking him in any way.
The other friend has gone from a funny person to be around, to a self centered jerk. We could screw around and have fun, but now he’s got a girlfriend, and his girlfriend comes along, and then he becomes a jerk trying to impress her, and acts like he’s better than me in every possible way. The annoying part about him being a jerk around his girlfriend is I’ve told him how I felt about him treating me. So, that’s the situation. Do I break away? Do I make a last effort? If I break apart how do I do it?
One thought on ““Do I break away from these friendships?””
Don’t put up with this any longer. You’ve told them and nothing changed. Just stop contacting them. If they ask be honest and tactful, but don’t allow them back in your life. They don’t seem mature enough to be able to handle relationships and you aren’t there to be a punching bag. That’s not what friends do.
