I know for a fact that my friends are telling people I’m annoying behind my back, however, when I tried to confront them they laughed and told me I was just being silly. My sources were reliable and I had proof of them talking bad about me. And some of these people I’ve cut ties with, but some of them hold too much power to cut them off. Am I overreacting? What should I do?

Dear Lil Miss Annoying,
It’s very important for you to know that you can trust your friends. What you’re doing is not only good for you but also good for your former “friends”. Minimizing your friend group to only the people you know you can trust is good. It’s also good for those other people to know that if they are going to be talking about you behind your back saying mean things, then they don’t appreciate your friendship and don’t deserve you. I don’t think you are overreacting. You should talk to these people and make it clear what you want. Maybe you both want to make amends or maybe you want to cut your ties. You should think it over one more time and be sure this is what you want.
