Overly-needy Friend

My guy friend I will just call “Richard” recently started pestering me suddenly this week, as if I’m not stressed out or busy enough. Lately it’s been about how he’s “no longer special” to me anymore, apparently. He seems to think I don’t want to be close with him anymore because we haven’t had a phone call or seen each-other in a LONG time. I get it, that’s a fair argument, if I can even call it that.

However, I’m also busy and I really don’t want to see someone’s face after a few hours of school work and class, plus studying, plus planning, plus other activities that are important. Every-time he mentions how he believes that I don’t think he’s a special friend to me anymore, I can’t help but get angry and want to stop talking to him all together.How many times do I need to reassure him? It never seems to work anyways.

Worse part about all of this?He does it whenever I’m depressed or suicidal, which just make’s me eat more chocolate ice cream.Of course I wouldn’t talk to anyone right now, especially right now.

I just don’t want to deal with it. What more can I offer everyone to make them happy?That’s all that comes to my mind when I think about it.
