It's like watching a plane crash into a mountain side.

Thursday, April 26, 2012

It is so difficult watching a loved one spiraling out of control. One of my oldest and dearest girlfriends is make so many poor romantic choices. I won't go into the boring details but she is ruining her life. It makes me so sad. I even resorted to literally begging her to leave him alone. As if that was going to work.

I just wish I could help. But I can't. I have said my peace and now I just have to sit back and watch her disintegrate. :(

    OMG Ashley! LMFAO! (pardon the french)

    I love the throat punch idea! :)

    She is definitely a responsible woman. She is a single mom of 5 kids. She is a good mom. She is super kind hearted, she would literally give a stranger the shirt off of her back. This makes her an easy target for getting taken advantage of. PLUS she is very lonely and does not have enough self-confidence. She used to. But not any more. She is tough though, she will solider thru. I wish it was going to be with less scars but it isn't up to me.

    Oh how frustrating! It must be a lack of confidence in herself. She needs to learn to be more self sufficient and find more value in herself. She is worth more than this! Maybe if she had more personal responsibility, she wouldn't have her loneliness nagging at her so much. For me, it took buying a house and having 2 jobs. That kind of responsibility doesn't leave time for that kind of nonsense. And who is this guy anyway? What makes him so important?? Makes me kinda want to punch him in the throat!

    Yeppers for sure. She already knows I am right though. It is part of what is frustrating. Her gut, her family, and all her friends see the warning signs and she ignores them anyway. Her loneliness is just at a desperate point and even though she knows she is making bad decisions she allows herself to make them anyway...ugh

    I unfortunately have many friends like that and all you can do is be there for them in the fallout. They aren't like children, you can't forbid them from doing something, as much as you want to! You wish you could steer them in a different direction but it's never going to happen :(
    Hopefully as she ages and sees the error of her ways, she will know that you were right and make it up to you in the form of monitary compensation (one can always hope)

    I know you are right Scooter. It's just really hard to watch. :(

    That's all you can do, sweetie. That and pray, if you're so inclined. People have to make their own mistakes and learn their own lessons.

    If you have the patience, you can still be around at the other end of the slide to help scrape up the pieces and reassemble them, if she chooses. emoticon
