I dont understand why i can't keep friends. Female in particular (im also female).
I try my best to be a good friend but my therapists say i end up in controlling or emotionally abusive friendships.
I thought i had gotten out of this when i went to university but it appears not. I am just so so tired of being hated when i try to say no to someone. And having my name dragged through the mud and isolated as punishment. I want to understand what im doing wrong because honestly its killing me. I feel like it will never end and theres no hope for me.

Hi there.

If someone hates you for saying no and then drags your name thru the mud for it, they're not a true friend to begin with. It's not that you can't keep friends I'd say, it's that you're choosing the wrong friends. Maybe you need to think more about what kind of person you want as a friend. And never give up, it's never too late and there's always hope.
