Being there for others

Monday, October 20, 2014

I have always followed the motto to turn the other cheek when people are lashing out on me. Today was a day I could not turn the other cheek. One of my friends has a partner who has hurt and lied to her numerous times. Now she wants to go back to that partner and all my friends are supposed to accept that. My partner took a stand and said she would no longer watch what was going on. Of course our friend took it the wrong way and lashed out on my partner. I stayed out of it and expressed my concerns to the leader of my group and we reached a middle ground on the situation. Then I get home and see how much this friend has lashed out on my partner and I lose it. I calmly wrote the other a friend and told her that was unacceptable. I told her I did not and would not accept anyone treating my partner that way. I told her our relationship as friends was over and maybe in the future we could reassess things. I am very sad about this and I feel like I have lost part of my family. I really liked her and enjoyed her company. It is really sad when you lose a friend because you love her so much to be honest with her.

    It's hard to make those kind of necessary choices. Maybe some time and distance will give your friend some much needed perspective.

    So sorry to read that your friend lashed out at your partner. It is sad to lose a friend this way. Hopefully, the friend will come around and seek forgiveness. But as you probably know, that does not always happen.
    I'll be praying about it.

    I'm so sorry for all you are having to go through. Would it help any if you could see things from their perspective? Maybe if the two of you could sit and talk about it so you could also express your views in non threatening ways that might help. IDK...

    Peace and Love
