Hi, I'm trying to figure out if I should remain friends with a girl I know.... everyone says yes, and I just don't like her because if her depression. But that's not true, I just don't like her personality. But apparently I'm her rock and we used to be best friends for 2 years. But when I look at her all I get is angry, and I feel the hatred building up. And I don't know what to do. Should I keep being in an uncomfortable relationship to make her happy, or should I end it and make myself happy?
Sounds like a toxic relationship. If you're sure that you don't get on with her personality (and not just her mental illness) then you need to remove yourself from the situation. Ending a toxic relationship is incredibly difficult and of course, it needs to be done sensitively since she is already struggling and seems to rely on you a lot. However, you need to make sure you are not her sole confidant and she has help from others or other support systems (even if you were going to stay friends this is vital!!!). Then, just chat to her. Explain why and what's happened that's led you to this decision and then, go.
