Thanks! What happens when a friend asks you directly if they did something wrong, (and they DID do something wrong), but you don’t have the courage to tell them the issue (that they are annoying, bothersome, intrusive) for fear that they won’t like you anymore or be too sensitive. How do you handle that? How do you tell them to back off? Thank you so much!
Awesome! I just watched your BFF tip and it so speaks to what feels real. I’m 38 years old and I wish I had this kind of advice when I was a lot younger. Even so, this kind of advice seems totally timeless and true for me now and for everyone at any age!
