My friend is in a toxic relationship – Please help
One of my pals has always had a sour connection with her spouse, and I’m having trouble with her. They’re both wonderful people, but when they get together, they’re like dynamite and not in a good way.
They both drink too much and fight, and one of them always walks out or is thrown out.
The trouble is, whenever they’re having a bad time, she completely withdraws from me and I never see her. She ignores my calls and emails, and then when they reconcile and everything is back to normal, she tells me what a jerk he is and how miserable her life is.
I’ve tried to express my thoughts to her in the past, and I’ve been quite supportive – both practically and emotionally – but I’m at a loss for words. If I’m being honest, I’m upset that she just vanishes when things between them are bad and I haven’t heard from her in weeks.
How can I assist her if she refuses to communicate with me?
It’s starting to grate on my nerves since I’m not sure why we’re still friends – good friends are there for you in good times and bad, and you don’t just abandon someone for weeks on end, right?
