Your Friends Can Be Triflin’

I’m sure everyone has had that friend who behaved more like a close enemy, rather than a bestie. They were very good at trying to steal your shine or even worse, were nowhere to be found when you needed them. And then we’ve had those friends who do things that irritate and hurt you, but seem oblivious to their mistakes–they don’t realize they’ve been a jerk. I’ve found that the more we brush our issues with our “friends” under the rug and smile in their face in the meantime, the worse they get and the more we’re setting ourselves up for pain. Sometimes it’s better to just confront the girlfriends in your life about the things they do that hurt you and hope for change, rather than to stay mum about it, let your anger boil over and explode at them with a list of complaints and resentments that paint them out to be the worst person ever. If you don’t let someone know they’re doing you wrong, how can you be mad if they don’t just miraculously change for the better?
