Angry I feel Like Dear Abby sometimes :(

All my friends come to me with their problems. I actually have one that comes to me with anything that is bothering me with her life. Which means I talk to her constantly. She has me sort out her showing difficulties (we ride horses and show) her diet plan, her guy problems, she even comes to me with her sex life, her family problems, her school problems, her body issues. I hear all about it, and she always wants a solution. Which I usually have one. My other friend has bf issues and parent issues and comes to me with them, and then I meet people online and they seem to seek advice from me. But, I have no one to share what I am feeling with. I actually dont feel comfortable telling my two close friends because I feel like I can't support them if I am leaning on them for support. I know it sounds stupid, but I get so confused and I think so much trying to sort it out that I worry myself too much about it. It drives me insane. How to I explain to them that I can't take on their problems and my own, how do I wean them from me making decisions for them? please help.

I know how you feel. You just need to tell her nicely that sometimes she has to handle things on her own because you have problems too. I don't see any other option besides talking to her about your feelings. Maybe once she cuts back on that you'll be able to talk to her about your problems. Hope this helps...

dude tell her you have your own problems, i agree. also, talk to your counsler? they're there to help, right? i understand how you said you feel like you ant tell your best friends because they lean on you for help. i cant do that either with people who ask me for help all the time. honestly, you sound like a pretty great person to me. but yeah i would try talking to a counsler everyone has their problems and its not up to you to solve got your own. btw-how old are you? im 16 email me at [email protected]
we can talk more..later
