    My ex friends made me defenseless & depressed

    Yep, I think they are like children. I've been acting like an adult, and they just act like children. I'm surprised you remembered my previous post, and that's good. You're right, it's only going to continue to cause suffering. I was moving on, but they wanted to see me still. I thought me and...

    My ex friends made me defenseless & depressed

    My friend Rene didn't invite me to his birthday party. I thought I was getting to be one of his close friends again, but I guess I'm still not. I don't understand, I'm always being nice to him. He even told me that I won't be able to be one of his closest friends anymore. He won't tell me his...

    Why Do I Always Attract Toxic Friends? I Feel Plagued

    1. Well, I tried to look for new friendships years ago at college, but none of them really liked me. The reason why I'm looking for friendships with the very people that hurt me is because recently, when I went out of CVS pharmacy just to pick up my prescriptions to walk back home, some creepy...

    Why Do I Always Attract Toxic Friends? I Feel Plagued

    Update about me everyone: Recently, I tried to do my best to be nice and normal to my friend Rene (male) to get him back to being friends with me, get his trust again, but I guess he didn't do his part back by being nice and normal to me. I wished him a happy birthday last year, but he didn't...

    Why Do I Always Attract Toxic Friends? I Feel Plagued

    That's a really good post that you wrote. My abuse did came from my caregivers which is my family. So I think that's why for me I attracted the fake friends and fake girlfriends (the fakers came to me and I didn't go to them) my whole life was because of my caregivers. I just want to attract the...

    Why Do I Always Attract Toxic Friends? I Feel Plagued

    Yeah, it is difficult to change the trend. And that's true that life is a big experiment. Yeah, that will be one of the best ways for me to process my trauma. Yeah, I totally agree. I think it's coming from my caregivers that is making me attract the wrong people. So I think that's why I've...

    Why Do I Always Attract Toxic Friends? I Feel Plagued

    Yep, I think they've been raised in abusive families. Yes, I do have an abuse history too like when my dad acts like he's right all the time to me when nobody does 100 %, it's only from 1% to 99%, it's just extremely abusive when I get the abuse from him. I never thought they would be like this...

    Why Do I Always Attract Toxic Friends? I Feel Plagued

    Looking for some insight into this as I have had repeated patterns of running into toxic people. I almost feel as if there is a banner on my forehead or something about me that draws toxic people to me. I grew up in an extremely dysfunctional family. I was surrounded by abusers & toxic people...

    Why Do I Always Attract Toxic Friends? I Feel Plagued

    Looking for some insight into this as I have had repeated patterns of running into toxic girlfriends. My girlfriends that I had in my childhood life and adult life were never real girlfriends. The ones that seem super nice in the beginning, but then turn into assholes later on & become bullies...
