That is not normal no. I would honestly think about your relationship with these friends of yours bc that is not helpful to always put someone down.
No, not really, unless that is how you and your friends communicate on a daily basis. I'd suggest perhaps speaking to your friends and asking why it is that they do this, explain that it upsets you and you are unhappy with their behaviour.
If you have true friends, they are going to want what's best for you. They will look out for you and protect you. Unless in an obviously joking manner, insults to purposely put you down are signs of an abusive relationship with your friends.
Me and my friends always crack jokes that can be hurtful but if it really does hurt you simply let them know and they will stop
No. They are you're friends they should be supportive, loving, and caring. If the things that they say don't fit into any of those categories, then they are not your real friends.
No. When you have a friend, they build you up not break you down. If you’re friends don’t make you fell good, they aren’t your friends.
It is definitely not normal. Friendly teasing is one thing, outright insulting or making fun of is not a a character trait anyone would want in a real friend. If they are outright insulting you, it may not even be that different from downright bullying. Consider communicating to your friends that it isn't okay to mistreat you like that, nobody deserves to be insulted. If that doesn't work, it might be time to find some new friends who will support and respect you. Keep in mind that this goes both ways. Supporting and respecting each other must be mutual. All parties in the friendship or any kind of relationship for that matter have to do it or else it doesn't work.
I guess that depends on the severity or the impact that the insult has on you. If you feel as though it is harmful or inappropriate to you, then it would be best to talk to your friends about how you feel.
No it is not normal for your friends to always insult you, those aren't your friends, unless their just joking.. If that happens you should find another group of friends that make you feel good about yourself.
No, thats not normal. Friends yes something insulting each other but not always. That kind of friends that doesnt respect you is not something worth to call a friend
No! It is normal for some friends to sometimes tease each other, but if someone is genuinely feeling insulted, then a good friend would stop immediately. Failure of one party to respect the emotions and feelings of the other is a sign of a toxic friendship. The best thing to do in this situation is to talk to your friends and convey that you feel offended by their words. If they continue to disregard your feelings, then this is not normal and should be addressed. In certain situations, the best thing to do can be to leave the relationship for your mental health, and that is perfectly okay. Remember: do what is best for you!
