You are your best friend, your biggest supporter, your ride or die. You may have others in life who will treat you with the respect and reverence that you deserve, but no one can love you the way you love yourself or treat you as well as you can treat yourself.
You aren’t a burden when you share your life and your experiences with your loved ones. And sharing what’s going on in your life is not complaining. Sometimes we have to talk things out with others to find solutions to our problems.
Have a discussion with them about how you feel, how the friendship is taking a toll on you and how the friendship is affecting you negatively.
