WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND?

Back Off, Asshole

"I'm tired of being blamed for my friend's depression. He wanted to date me, I said no, and now he's in the pits of despair. Which happens with rejection, we've all felt it. But he's actually going around telling people that I put him in his state of depression, not the act of being rejected. He's even going so far as making stuff up about me and trying to get our mutual friends to side with him by way of these lies. I didn't do anything to him. I merely said "I don't think it would work out" and in a very polite tone too. What he's telling everyone: "She's destroying me. Every time I'm with her, she smothers my soul". I'm sorry he's hurt, I honestly am. But I'm tired of him blaming me for his feelings. I can't help that I don't think we're compatible romantically and it's not my problem that he was so attached to the idea. He put himself in this depression, my rejection of him may have contributed to his feeling poorly of himself but my physical existence on this planet is not the sole cause of his depression. Back off asshole."

    People will try and make you feel guilty for all kinds of things. Good for you for standing strong. Though I am sorry your friend is hurting so much and it sounds like you’re losing someone close to you. That sucks for both of you.

    You said it, we all get hurt we all get rejected. Some people just like to wallow in it because for some reason the hurt feels good to them….and maybe they think they can guilt you in to giving them what they want.

    Being rejected is hard. Being blamed for what you feel is hard too. Hang in there.

    I’ve been on both sides of this story. He’ll get over it. You stay strong.

    HE WILL GET OVER IT, I THINK CALLING HIM AN ASSHOLE IS A LITTLE RUFF. But if he can’t tango, with you no need in wasting your time or his.
