Narrative Essay About My Best Friend

Improved Essays
Once upon a time, I had a best friend. Don 't get me wrong, I still do, it 's just a different person now. This original best friend I had been friends with for 8 years. Yes, you 'd think 8 years would have brought us closer together, even inseparable, and we were, but not in a good way.

This friend, we 'll call her Holly, was an abusive friend. She didn 't punch me or anything like that (I 'd like to see her try) but she was mentally abusive. She would rip you down to nothing to make herself seem bigger in the eyes of herself and everyone else.

Let 's go over a few instances we had...

1) "You can 't hang out with them."

Yes, she told me not to hang out with people.

Halloween was coming up and I was invited by one of my best friends

So what happened the end of Junior Year was that I began to be very open about Holly 's abuse. My newest friend (now best friend), Kristina (love you hun!), had listened to me tell all of my horror stories of Holly 's constant put-downs and antics. People knew I was getting sick of Holly and I wanted to be free of her reign, and someone eventually told her. I came home on the last day of school to see she had unfriended and unfollowed me on all social medias! I was free of her! That summer was one of the least stressful summers ever, and senior year was great too!

Yes, I did hear that she was telling anyone who would listen to not be friends with me. My favorite was "You shouldn 't be friends with her, everything is always about her." It 's funny because she was describing herself, not me.

Anyways, we became civil with each other because we are in the same friend group and we have hung out in group situations multiple times without ripping each other 's heads off.

So my advice for anyone: If a friend is tearing you down constantly or making your life stressful, they aren 't a real friend. It 's okay to cut ties because it will make you feel better. Plus, it gives you the opportunity to find yourself without the constant hovering of a bad

    When I got home I told my boyfriend what all happened and he was furious. He is protective of my feelings and does not like it when I get upset. I decided after I talked with him that I wanted nothing to do with her (he did not sway me one way or another in my decision) until she got it together. I made the dreaded phone call and it went as well as I thought it would, so not good at all. She pointed the finger and went so far as to try to convince me that I know did or said things I did not do.…

    For as long as I have known about social media, I have disliked and avoided it. I was a teenager when I first heard about it through my kid sister who became very involved in MySpace. Learning about the way people spoke to one another, how they spoke to my sister, on the site was annoying at the least and aggravating at the most, particularly because I could not convince her to give it up. In 2007 or 2008, I was living in Las Vegas and when I returned home for a short visit, I watched as my Auntie Angie, usually the perfect hostess, ignored all ten of her guests by checking and rechecking her Facebook account. By then, I had heard plenty of jokes and complaints about people becoming “addicted” to it, and sites like it, but I had assumed they were exaggerations and did not take them seriously.…

She told me that night when I got home that, “I needed to keep my mouth shut in all of my classes from now on.” That’s really funny that she told me that, because I got my talkativeness from her. My mom is constantly talking also, so I really did get that from…
