My best friend is acting weird and I don't know what to do...

Recently I noticed my best friend started acting weird, unusual, like avoiding me or something like that. I'm not sure if it's only my paranoia or trust issues or whatever, but it's strange. I don't wanna ask because from experience I know it may end badly. I'm just worried, did I something. I'm not very good with people so I don't know what could be reason of it.

All you can do is ask them if everything's ok. If they don't say anything, don't push it. Think of this as an issue with them, not you.

I can understand you thinking it may be something you have done. It could be your friend is going through a difficult time too. I do not see any harm in asking if they are okay and if you have upset them.

I can understand your resistance to asking them about it but it’s really the best thing you can do. xo, j
