    I need advice. I have a friend who I consider one of my closest friends, and we have known each other for about a little more than a year. He used to call me for hours at a time almost every day, but this past month it’s nothing. every time I ask he’ll say no but still call other people. He never asks me to hang out and just doesn’t make an effort in general. He called me today and barely talked to me while we were on the phone and just played his game and said he’s gonna go when his other friend can play, and he’s waiting for him. I constantly tell him it’s making me feel bad and he keeps saying he will change but never does. I’m not sure if it’s right for me to feel hurt and be mad, or if I’m just being selfish. I’m thinking of not being friends anymore cuz it really hurts me, but like I said maybe I’m overreacting.

    Maybe you are overreacting, but at least you’re protecting your peace of mind which is something good.

    I don’t recommend continuing a friendship with someone who always makes you feel bad. You don’t need to justify or rationalize or apologize for your feelings; just honor them and leave the friendship. You might be sad or angry for a while, but eventually you’ll just be proud of yourself for honoring your boundaries. This is how you move forward and avoid getting stuck in a place that doesn’t bring you satisfaction.
