He’s friends with my best guy friend from high school and so I refuse to go visit him when this bully is there.
This guy still calls me the names he called me in school, even as adults and used to physically attack me which took a big toll on my mental health. My friend keeps telling this guy has changed and he’s not the same guy from school but I don’t believe him. I still refuse to be around this guy.
Just now he added me on Facebook and I’m tempted to just block him. My parents still tell me to stay clear of him. I’ve met his cousins before who say he gives them a bad name because they share the same last name and I’m good friends with his ex girlfriend who also doesn’t like him anymore.
Most Helpful Opinions
The fact that your best friend is friends with him is the most concerning part for me. Is he aware of the extent of the bullying that occurred? You're right to refuse to be around him, definitely block. No matter how much we want to believe that people can change, the chance that they actually will is slim to none. He would have to want to change, continuing to call you names wouldn't be indicative of that at all. Take the words of his cousins and ex girlfriend to heart, they probably have spent more time with him than your friend, if he isn't aware of what a jerk this dude is.
