So, I have this friend, her and I are going to college for the same career. I'm glad to have her since it makes the classes and overall experience less overbearing. However, she is so dramatic, always over-analyzing and exaggerating every single thing regarding school, to make it short she is very pessimistic and I'm always trying to help her sort it all out but I think she gets annoyed with my optimistic outlook. Some of our classmates do not like her because she is always sucking up to professors, always asking questions with obvious answers. To top it off she wants to be on the phone with me talking about assignments or "working" on homework together but sometimes its just too much. I don't mind it but sometimes I like to be on my own and listen to music, and as crazy as it may sound talk to myself because it helps me focus or get my ideas straight. I barely I have time to eat, or sleep or have time for myself because I am with her. To put it into perspective I talk more with her than I do with my family. I feel like in a way she is impacting my grades because I have always been an A student and right now I'm not so confident with my assignments. I am aware I am responsible for myself and I am definitely owning up to it. This takes me to another negative side of hers. She never owns up to her mistakes, always looking for someone else responsible other than herself. I cant just stop being her friend, because with all the negative traits mentioned, there is good in her. I know she is trying her best to succeed in our classes and I'm trying to help her as well, but need alone time. I feel that if I had the courage to tell her how i feel so she would probably think the worse of me and make this huge deal and probably think that I no longer want to be her friend and probably even involve our other friend. I feel so selfish for thinking this way but I feel so out of energy right now. I listen to her and try to ease her mind but it doesn't help, and I wish she would instead talk with her boyfriend so he'd help her out instead of me!CAN ANYONE PROVIDE ME WITH FEEDBACK, RECOMMENDATIONS, OR WHAT YOU WOULD DO IN MY SITUATION? Thank you in advance!
