Feeling guilty about expressing joy around your friend is not what you’d call a healthy dynamic. Your friends should be happy when you’re happy.
Furthermore, if a friend is showing constant negativity toward you and what you’re doing in life, they may be a fake friend.
When a friend is consistently trying to impose their beliefs on you and playing the game of “I’m right, and you’re wrong,” they’re not respecting your choices or what makes you happy.
In a friendship, each person should respect the other’s differences, no matter what they may be. If you can’t be yourself around them, you should probably reconsider the friendship.
