My best friend tells everyone what is wrong in their lives and we’re fed up!

Hey Rosie,

I AM HAVING this dispute with my best friend. She is going through this phase in her life where she is telling everyone in our group of friends what is wrong in our lives, but isn’t open to hearing what we see is going on in hers! We are about sick of this mess Rosie.

When we get together to hang out for dinner etc., no one wants to hear how our children are out of control, how we should handle our boss, that our hubbies are lazy and so on. Meanwhile she is not trying to listen to us about staying in her lane. So the other three girlfriends in the group have elected for me to let her know that we are tired of it. Now why should it be me Rosie?

Why can’t they speak up themselves? However I am also tired of this nonsense!

Help me deal please

Dear Help me please ,

This one is sticky. I have to say when it comes to your BFFs it can be very difficult to broach a sensitive subject with them.

Even though it seems on the other hand that your girlfriend is quite fluid telling the group about their issues.

I also agree with you, why would your other girlfriends elect you as the one to confront her about her open opinions? If you don’t want to, then don’t.

No one can force you to do something you don’t want to, plain and simple.

So my question to you is, can you keep on ignoring her? Or do you feel that you will need to personally address her constant chatter about your life?

This my friend is totally up to you – there are no right or wrong approaches so good luck !
