Summary of the storm

A coworker tried to turn me into a laughingstock when I joined thile office 2 years back. Following this, my friend started to hang out more with them and started to ignore me. This bothered me and triggered my borderline. I shared with my other friend (who became my favourite person - an unhealthy borderline attachment). I wanted my favourite person to treat the other friend the same as she had treated me, by creating this weird gang against me to bully me. He never listened, and it caused fights. They all thought it was "toxic" of me to treat her the way she treated me. Finally they're all friends and I was slowly isolated. Now they all treat me like that. I'm the bad guy for retaliating. They would always unite to treat me badly if I retaliated. And yet I was the toxic one to ask my favourite person to unite with me because they treated me like How come it's justified when other people do it? But not justified if I want to take a stand for myself and to ask a friend to take a stand the way they would all stand against me? It doesn't make sense.
And now I'm friendless. And they're all friends. And they all treat me like shi.t

Not alot of people at my job like me either because i can be socially akward at times dealing with ptsd. They talk behind my back and have tried to set me up to look bad in the past. I learned to not care about what other people think because they dont understand my struggle. They have never endured what i deal with on a regular basis so they never developed empathy. I know myself and what i am capable of so they dont effect me. I work well alone if i have to. Learn to love your self and the opinions of others wont effect you. There are better people out there. Dont get hooked on the few that dont matter. You are worth more than you think. You just have to find it within yourself.

Ignore them. Just do your work, which is why you are there, and let them get on with their childish behavior. Is there someone in authority you can talk to about it because really you shouldn't have to even work in this kind of colleague environment. It's a work place and not the school playground they think it is.
