She's always telling me how fat I am and how I need new clothes, but no one else ever believes me when I tell them why I'm upset with her. When it's just the two of us she's horrible, mean, and just rude. When we're in front of other people, she will say things like, "Hey, you should let us give you a makeover." When we're alone she'll say, "You really need to wear makeup, no boy will ever date you looking like a ghost!"
And M Girl's answer is:
"Often people who make others feel bad about themselves, do it because they feel about themselves. However, you should not put up with verbal abuse. Give your friend one chance to change. Tell her that her comments hurt you, if you have already told her this, or if she does not listen, stop being friends with her. Friends should make you feel good about yourself, not the other way around. Cut her out of your life and find friends who are nice to you. Good Luck!"
