What do you do when you wanna be a good friend but your friend is in a bad relationship?
I’ve been on both sides of the spectrum with this situation and it’s not easy no matter where you’re at.
As someone who used to totally ditch her friends whenever she started dating someone, I can tell you that it was one of the humbling experiences to actually have my friends when I was going through that breakup.
Because I knew that I didn’t deserve them. I completely ignored them for no good reason. Other than the fact that I didn’t know how to balance multiple relationships in my life, therefore I chose the guy over them.
And my relationships were bad. They knew it and I knew it. Yet, I still chose the guys over them. And yet… they still chose me through it all.
But to hit rock bottom with those breakups, and to have them love on me as if none of it even happened was something else.
Having good friends to hold me down when I wasn’t a good friend to them was an act of grace and unconditional love that I will never forget.
Now, being on the other end of that spectrum, I can assure you that it is NOT EASY to be a friend to someone who does not listen.
Who cannot see the hurt and pain their choices are causing to themselves and to everyone else who cares about them.
To have to witness my friends get hurt over and over and over is enough to make you wanna give up on them altogether.
But that’s not what my friends taught me. And had my friends did that to me back in my terrible love life days, I would not be the friend that I am to help others in need of the same grace and unconditional love.
In this video, I share with you a few things you need to consider and what you can do in order to be a good friend towards someone who’s in a bad relationship.
