Dealing With Difficult People
What is it about female friendships that can send us right back to junior high? Most of the time I tend to think that at 37 years old, I am well past all that girl drama. Those are the ones I trust completely, the ones I can pour my heart out to, the ones who I know will be there for me no matter what, and the ones who are immune to all the jealousy and pettiness and cattiness that so often crops up between us women. Best of all, it's completely FREE. Not so long ago I found myself in this exact situation. One of my very closest friends was suddenly not so close anymore, and I had no idea why. She laughed it off and assured me that it was nothing, but still, the uneasiness lingered.

When they need something, they seek you out right away. One-sided friendships can leave you confused after that hurt. You demonstrate an interest all the rage their well-being, but they show a small amount interest in you and your desire, unless you make an effort en route for draw them out. Your friend can not gossip, lieor do anything absolute hurtful. They might be fantastic — when they actually come through.
