......and putting a stop to it.
A "friend" contacted her out of the blue claiming how much he's "changed". Has told her that he has "cut sugary food" out of his diet. Now confides in her his relationship problems. He's unhappy. She's high on herself that his girlfriend sees her as a threat. They talk constantly. Even if we aren't together anymore, my bullsh*t meter is maxed. This sleazebag cut her out of his life and wants back in now that he's unhappy with his.
Part of what I learned about growing up(and trust me, I've had a lot to learn in a short amount of time so far) is that taking a risk to stand up for what you believe in is a risk worth taking.
I'm telling her today what it is, and why this is a bad idea. It's her life, her choices, her mistakes, and I get that....but part of being a true friend is telling the truth. This guy has no respect for his longtime girlfriend, who told him that if he keeps contacting her, she'll break up with him. He won't have any respect for her.
I know I should be focusing on myself, and I am. Because I want to be able to sleep at night knowing that I was true to myself.
