Why do friends always do things they know will hurt you?

Most of my friends do things that will hurt me. I can't stand it, but I stay friends with them...

    If your "friends" hurt you I would have to ask why do you consider them friends. Good friends go out of their way to not hurt you so perhaps you need a better class of friends.
    Better yet you may want to look at how you treat them. It works both ways.

    If whatever they're doing hurts you THAT badly, then you don't know the real definition of 'friends'.

    There are two types of people who say/ do things which might be considered hurtful.
    The first is friends, and while the things they do may appear to be hurtful, they're not seriously trying to hurt you. (Pulling your leg... that sort of thing...)
    The second is really mean people. If they do something hurtful or hateful you should ignore it because they don't matter anyway.

    I don't know... I wish I did. I think sometimes it's a competition thing, especially amongst female friends. It's not nice though.

    Just to explain to people, I've been friends with my friends for over 20 years and in most ways we're very close and there for each other. However, with that much history there is baggage, and sometimes there is friction. It's not always as simple as 'don't be friends with them'. We don't know the full story for Countrygirl, it's not always as simple as it seems.

    look...if a friend repeatidly does something to hurt you on purpose THEY'RE NOT YOUR FRIEND! plain and simple, they're most likly using you for something. to continue to be friends with them, would be quite ignorant.

    It's your fault, then. You're the one who chooses to stay friends with these people.

    If they do things to hurt you and you continue to hang with them, you give them the impression it's OK for them to continue doing it. Have you told them that what they do is hurtful? If not, I think you should and if they continue to do those things, I think you need to find new friends.
  • SA 2011/10/23 21:24:34
    If a so called "friend" hurts you intentionally and often, they are NOT really your friends. I have had friends (same ones for decades) and I have been hurt....but not intentionally. I know who has my back...and it is my friends!

    Because they like all other people are encapsulated with themselves and aren't mind readers.

    Even the most compassionate people are capable of at least emotionally hurting others.
