Hard to loose

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

It is hard to loose a friend over a misunderstanding.
She was attaching herself to a man and having him stay over.
A month ago I was consoling her about her ex....
I have been married for 43 years, I just do not empathize
Maybe someone else can help her.
I told her she was acting agitated and to calm down.
She told me where to go and has snubbed me ever since.
I feel like I am in middle school.

    Sometime all we can do it be there. As you already know, people have to learn for themselves before real change can happen. It's not about you and you seem strong enough to understand that.

    She's lost a valuable thing because of pride.

    Sounds to me like she is having her own doubts and doesn't want to believe that they might have some ground. You are a true friend for telling her how you felt. Maybe you could write her a letter about how you meant to come across. Sometimes it's easier to say what you mean when you write it down.
    Trust God will show you the right time to talk to her again. Keep in prayer about her, and maybe pray for God to help show you how to be empathetic?

    Give her some time. You may be able to save the friendship but you both will have to acknowledge that you have a different opinion but that it's okay.

    My husband and his best friend argue constantly and have gone months without speaking. But they couldn't live without each other. It took them almost 20 years to admit they were different people but could still be close friends.

    Hang in there.

    All you can do is love her and forgive her, she doesn't have to apologize first - that will set her free to forgive herself and see truth. Just love her - pray for her and be there when she sees the light and wants friendship again. If she doesn't want your friendship again - she is still in God's hand - just turn it over to Him. emoticon

    Maybe after she calms down she will apologize. If not she wasn't a very good friend. Friends turn into different people with a man around. Good luck and God bless. WW.
