This one friend I have tends to laugh when I tell her stuff that is serious and important to me. I've called her out on it and she says she's just trying to keep things light by laughing. But it hurts my feelings. Though I've expressed that, I keep getting the same response. And then I tend to get quiet because I feel bad, which my friend doesn't like when I am that way and tells me so... I am wondering is this a form of being controlling? How can I get this person to understand how hurtful these actions are when I've brought it up multiple times? I myself actually used to be that way in high school... But when I realized how angry and hurt that I had made one of my friends by my actions, I had to change them. That was a long time ago and I no longer have that friendship. But u remember the lesson I learned. Am I being unreasonable? I am really hurt.
