Our expert says:
Sounds like you've been unfortunate in your choice of friends, and have made too much of your self-worth dependent on what other people might think of you. So counselling, especially of the CBT form, to grow a better self-image and self-esteem, could be useful. And it could enable you to form new friendships with good people, who have better things to do than play nasty bad-mouthing games about others.
Try geting involved in worthwhile activities --- with church and youth groups, charities, etc., where you will emet new and a better class of people, with possibilities of fresh friendships.
