So, I have this friend and she's 36... I'm 18.... And we've been friends for a while, but her daughter is friends with my sister and they're 14 years old, and I feel bad lately because her daughter gets jealous sometimes because she talks to me more than her sometimes... But what she doesn't know is that we talk about her most of the time.
And also, lately I feel really bad for my friend because she has enough to deal with, and then I have my eating disorder that she's trying to deal with. I don't want her to have to deal with it, but she talks about it a lot but only because she wants me better...
I always become friends with people in their 30s and I think it's because my mom and I never had a good relationship and I just get along better with older people... But I feel bad lately because I'm really not doing so well.. I mean I was, but then I completely went the other way, and I feel like if I just let her go and told her to give us some space for a while, maybe she'd be better off without me. For one, she wouldn't have to deal with me anymore, (which she says she won't leave me anyway), and two, maybe her daughter wouldn't be so jealous and they could have more time to each other, and 3, I just think she'd be better off... And I feel bad that our age difference is so big. I mean, is that weird or what? I guess I figured it was normal, cause that's how it's always been for me... But honestly.. I'm just STUCK!!
Any advice please? I mean, I kinda already told her to justlet it be for a few days and see how it goes,but she took it as a message from me saying that she sucked or something.. so idk..
