How To Support A Friend Whose Choices You Don’t Support

Do not enable it

Don’t enable it. You can set this rule, too. If she had a gambling problem for example, don’t give her money. Don’t drive her to the casino or the tracks. If she is in an unhealthy relationship, don’t let her and that partner attend the small events you throw. Don’t let them feel that their situation is accepted. It isn’t. Don’t give them a place to stay when their landlord kicks them out because of complaints about all of the screaming matches they have. Let her sit with the discomfort of the situations that her choices bring into her life. Don’t ease those moments for her because it doesn’t help her.
