Too tired to google the meaning however if its negative friendship all about them and you have had enough you can walk away from them. Toxic people don't need to be kept in out lives...

Histrionic people are easily stressed. Quick to turn even the smallest thing into a massive drama. They are over the top.

Hm sounds like one of my foster kids... If it's not about them, they will make it about them, even at the expense of hurting others.

But without seeing someone with this type of personality I could say I know plenty of people who have this need to be the centre of attention and make everything about them and are dramatic AF.

I work in adult community mental health. I have clients like this. I find the best strategy is to not buy into it. Help them look at the situation more rationally and with logical thought processes and call them out on it where appropriate.

They will stop doing it with you if you see through and call out their behaviour. Expect some pushback but they will learn their crap won't wash with you.

Good luck
