How to deal with not a friend but they're in your friendship group who acts the victim in situations he has created? Especially when all your friends then side with him because he's "having a hard time"? It makes me feel incredibly isolated even though I've done nothing wrong and he just creates drama out of boredom.
Be empathetic when around this person, and try to understand why they are doing what they are doing. Yet also allow yourself to see situations he may be trying to manipulate and don’t let yourself get drawn in. When you feel like it’s happening, bring it to his attention. Point out what he is doing and how it’s affecting you.
If this doesn’t work, when there is a situation it may just be best to distance yourself until it all dies down and not get caught up in it. Taz
