Well... she never supports me in any of my accomplishments and never helps me with challenges I am going through. I know the cons outweigh the pros in this friendship, I just need a plan in order to take action. Any ideas?
You could confront her and tell her how you are feeling.
Or you should try to hang out with your other friends that treat you well. This will help you develop closer friendships with others, which will help you stop hanging out with her.
Great ideas! Why is it important for her to take the action of getting out of this friendship? What steps should she follow to stick with her plan and not back out? Think about what the benefits of a good friendship are!
The steps should be to follow through with a plan that you worked on by problem-solving.
You should take action because if you don't it can hold you back from accomplishing your goals or doing activities that make you happy.
Having a good friend makes life fun! They are there for you no matter what
Thank you guys for your thoughts and suggestions! I've known this was a bad relationship for a while but I wasn't sure how I would go about ending it. Now that I participated in this group session, I am now able to see what a good friend should be like and problem-solve situations like these!
Great class everyone! This class should have prepared you to take action when you are in an unhealthy friendship. All of you had great advice or gave examples from personal situations. I'll see you all next week!
