She also slept around a lot and put me down for all my more positive decisions to maintain a healthy, happy longterm relationship, because yknow, I was missing out. Another friend was telling me a story about planning her wedding, and about how she's decided not to invite her old friend because she'd decided she were a 'toxic' friend. I took heart, and finally decided my prior best friend was a toxic friend, and wasn't good for me. I don't think we've spoken once in 2008, she's probably too busy smokin pot and sleepin around. But that's her life and this is mine.
that sounds like a similar experience that i had. i had a "friend", really, just someone i partied with, and truely didnt have anything else in common with. she would always joke about my vegetarianism *and i wasnt even that strict then*, my environmentalism, the fact i wasnt racist, etcetc.
she would put down my eating, while she, quite overweight/obese, is shoving (literally this happened) a triple bacon cheeseburger at like 3 am into her mouth. it was sooo ironic and blatant that she was doing it to make herself feel less guilty.
my bff, who was there at the time couldnt help but laugh at the situation.
i would tell her to stop and she would just go on and on, telling me to relax. it got to be too much, where i realized i wasnt being true to myself, and i didnt want her reputation. she was toxic. and i had to cut her out.
ive spoken to her recently, and i find it sooo humorous to hear her talking about the environment and the govt/ gas/ bush/ war debacle. but still, she wouldnt do anything to take a stand, just b***h.
*sorry, i was venting*
