Recently I have had a falling out with my best friend... from 6th grade.
What happened was we were planning on starting a youtube channel. I bought a 500 dollar video camera and was in the process of getting a mic. However, I was having trouble, because the kind we needed was around 200 bucks. (I'm in High School, so this money isn't easy to obtain)
He keeps getting mad at me that I wasn't taking our project seriously and I was wasting my time. I was sensing he was looking down on me because I occasionally party. However I keep my life in order, lift weights etc.
After about two weeks of this going on (him pressuring me to buy it) he finally hit me up and said: I'm going to find a new video partner, we can still be friends though.
I was like wtf. I just spent 500 bucks (and I haven't gave up the channel obviously) . Then this kid changes the password on the channel I made, which looks fucking pro. He takes it all for himself.
I start to realize my "best" friend has been leeching off my free shit my entire life. I literally hooked this kid up with floor front row NBA tickets multiple times. Luckily I have made a group of like minded friends who are going somewhere in life.
Have you guys ever had experiences like this? Any tips on bouncing back ?

Hey tear it up. I know how ya feel, bro. I lost someone I considered a best friend a few years ago over a petty dispute. We fought many times and usually made up. Sometimes I stayed mad at him for months (even a year) because he made it clear each and every time he didn't respect me or take me seriously. He was always trying to throw his weight around and flaunt how superior he was compared to me.
Ironically, he'd come running back to me because all his other friends were losers who often lied, stole from, and took advantage of him. But this time he hasn't come running back because he's got a mail-order bride from the Philippines and her baby daughter to keep him occupied. It's funny because the fight we had something to do with her. He was an ass before he met her, but he's become an even bigger ass now. It took me a while to realize it.
We haven't spoken since the incident but we live near each other and we cross paths on the street very often. I run into his mom sometimes and we talk and she wants us to bury the hatchet. But i've decided i'm done with him. I realize he's caused me a lot of unhappiness and judged me unfairly over the years despite the fact he should've known me better, and I don't need someone like that in my life.
Now, how this applies to you, what your friend did was wrong and very selfish. Taking all the credit for your hard work. If he was a real friend he would've tried to work it out with you but he didn't. I know it's difficult and you feel betrayed but don't fret. People like that usually get what's coming to them. There's not much you can do but move forward. Continue lifting weights, make another channel. Focus on you and your priorities. Success, my friend, is the ultimate form of payback.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
