  • Relationship?

    I have known this friend for many years.

    She has been living apart from her partner  for many  years he works away and he won't allow her to visit 

    Every time he is due to come home he makes up a lot of excuses and leaves her hanging on and he don't turn up with no explanation. 

    My friend calls me and she pretends that all is well and she makes a lot of excuses for him. 

    When I try to be a friend and encourage her to talk to him about his behaviour she gets annoyed with me and gives me the cold shoulder for a few days. 

    I find it very hard to go along with her excuses about him 

    I try to make her understand that she needs to communicate with him and let him know how She feels

    I am frustrated because she calls me upset but don't listen what I have to say 

    How do I manage this  situation? 

    I care about her

  • Relationship?

    I am feeling very sad

    My son who is 26 years old lives at home. I have been a single parent since he was 3 years old. 

    When he was younger I worked very hard I went to university finished my degree then went on to do my masters. This is so that  in the future we would  never have to suffer financially. 

    Just recently my son dropped a bombshell and told me that he resents me because I was an absent parent when he was younger and he had many caregivers all family members  because of this he  suffers with self confidance and anxiety. 

    This has made me feel remorseful and wish that I can rewind back time. 

    Working so hard back then was never my intention to ever make him feel this way. 

    Prior to him telling me this 

    I have always supported him 

    New car live rent free so that he can save money. I paid his university fees 

    I cook his meals and I always tell him that I love him 

    When ever he gets annoyed he then let's me know how he felt back then

    Help how can I make amends?

  • Married Relationships ?

    I have a wonderful girlfriend she is lovely in lovely in every way.

    Sadly she lives apart from her husband for many reasons. 

    When ever myself and my husband go on vacation she ask a multitude of questions when?  where? How much?    and when will I be back.

    Whist we are away I feel like a child who is   about  to  be scolded knowing when I return there will be a fury of questions.

    At times I feel like I dont ever want to tell her anything and I continually down play what we are doing

    Every weekend she asks the same questions when are we getting together.

    The other day I went out with a neighbour and My friend  found out  I avoided my friends calls for a few days and hoped she would have forgotten  when I eventually spoke to my friend the first question she ask was How was the meal? Where did you go? Her questioning was very sarcastic


    Unfortunately many of my friends are unmarried I do try my best to share myself with friends and hubby .

    I have recently returned from a one week vacation and during that time I felt uneasy and I felt like I was preparing in my head the answers ready to give her on my return 

    This particular friend I cant work out why she behaves in this way?

    What should I do?  Advise please
