So I'm in this group of friends that have been around for a few years, over a few interactions I have developed a toxic relationship with one of the people in this group. I have tried to talk to him about becoming friends again and that whatever I did (which I don't know) I'm sorry, but he shot me down and have no interest in reigniting friendship again. It's to the point where he blocks me and don't answer any of my messages.
I figure just cut him out of my life and I'll be OK, but here's where the problem lie. He is the leader of the discord group I'm currently in and where all my other friends interact, it is the main hub of where all activities occur and where we plan get together and everything else. This person is very popular in the group and have major influence over my other friends decisions. When does anything in the server he'll try his best to cut me out of it be it in conversations and activities. He's also very cunning able to bend his words where's as leaving me out is generally accepted among-st everyone. He has a much higher reputation than me so my voice is usually buried buy his.
Leaving this group is very sub optimal for me since I'll be losing my only communication to a majority of my other friends as well as conversations I like to be a part in. I have tried talking to my other friends about the problems I have with him but it generally doesn't end in anything, things continue as normal. It's become to a point where my envy to this guys status keeps me up at night. I've been friends with people in this group for years and this guy only showed up in the last 8 months, its either leave the group and lose my friends or stay in and be mentally unhealthy. I don't know what to do in this situation.
This is like the flip flop version of this question: How to interact with someone whose close friend group seems to dislike you?
