Stupid drama?

I don’t really have another place to complain about this, so I’ll do it here.

I’ve had this friend for a while now. I think that most of the time, she’s fairly kind, not to mention funny, but we’re very different. We do get into arguments, and when she’s angry with me, she’s unnecessarily rude. I’m not going to use her real name, so I’ll just call her “Sally”.

See, the problem with Sally is that I try to listen and be sympathetic when she complains about her problems, but it seems like she’s always telling me “OMG SHUT UP AND GET OVER IT EMILY” when I try to tell her about my own. Usually hers are about guys or her parents. But to be fair, most of mine are too.

My school had a dance last night, and I have no idea why I went. Perhaps it was because my friends”including Sally”were going, or maybe because I’m a little stupid sometimes. I had a feeling that something bad was going to happen because a) I’m a little paranoid, and b) It’s happened many times before.

As I had predicted, the dance didn’t go too well. I absolutely despise rap (which was all the DJ played, for the most part), there was almost nothing to do because I don’t dance very much, and I hate watching the guy I have somewhat of a crush on grind his girlfriend in the middle of the cafeteria, which really hurt me emotionally. I’ve had to deal with things like this before, and I’m completely sick of it. I was talking to my other friends about this, and they were actually very supportive, which surprised me, because I thought they’d think I was selfish for getting upset over something like this. This is when I decided to leave the dance and go home, because I just wasn’t having a good time. Once I arrived at my house again, I felt relieved.

Apparently, Sally didn’t approve of this. Earlier today, I started chatting with her online and asked, “How was the rest of the dance?” and she threw a fit. I tried to explain to her that I left because was miserable, and she just responded with rudeness, telling me to get over it and that she’d had a crush on a guy for five years and how much he hated her and things like that. I don’t think she understands that I’m honestly very different from most people and that I’m highly sensitive, which I have told her before. Then she said, “OMG, Emily, don’t even start with that,” and then told she wasn’t going to talk to me. That’s when I logged off.

Does leaving a dance because I’m upset make me “weak” or something like that? Should I just shut up and get over it? I don’t know, because none of my other friends seemed to be as infuriated as Sally was. I have no idea who’s right this time. All I know is that Sally tends to overreact, and that I felt so much better when I went back home.

I don’t feel any shame, I won’t apologize.
