I Try My Hardest, But You Won't Listen
My best friend is going through some stuff. She has just broken up with the same guy she's once before and has been really torn up by it. I'm the person she goes to to vent about anything and everything, and I try my hardest to give her the best advice I can. But after I give her tons of advice she starts crying saying, "I don't know what to do." And it just infuriates me that she acts like I didn't just give her all of this advice. It's like she's refusing to even take into consideration what I am telling her. It got to the point where I had to tell her that I wasn't the most qualified to help her with her relationship problems considering that I have never had a boyfriend. Then she proceeds to tell me, "I don't care if you don't know s*** about this, you're my best friend and you have to help me." Which is a bit ironic considering that she never helps me with my problems. And I don't ask for help much. Sometimes she accuses me for using her as an "emotional punching bag". I will admit that this may be true because sometimes I go through these really frightening stages of rage and anxiety, but I try to reign it in for her sake. I just don't know what to do. I love her but sometimes it just gets too frustrating. I try to tell her, but she just won't listen.
