Do you have friends who make you feel down/worse? How do you deal with this? I am thinking of two close friends in particular, both mean well. However one is a "misery loves company" type and more doom and gloom/complainer. For example she was feeling very lonely/moody, so in the end I was feeling a bit unsettled for a couple of days. We have deep conversations and get along otherwise. I have told her she is doom and gloom, and even advised her not to be this way while dating (she is married now). The other is very direct and I find her insensitive at times. We disagree on many things but she otherwise a genuine and honest person. I have told her she has patronized me, and she grew upset and said she has never patronized me. In both cases I was honest with how I feel but the situations have not improved. I believe these are personality issues and they will never change.
