Ever think it might be your roommate's fault? Penny

Don't be so hard on yourself, and don't let her words hurt you. Insecure people usually lash out and it seems she's found an easy target in you. Why assume that she's right and you are wrong?

Find another roommate or move to another location. Or create a haven in your bedroom and avoid her as much as possible. Set boundaries that will protect you. Simple rules "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." I learned that one in kindergarden. :) If she doesn't want you socializing with her friends, invite your own over.

You can't fix her. Do what you have to, for you to be happy.

Good Luck!
