So, do you ever have those friends that don't offer you support? I do, and I'm starting to get tired of it. Rather than give encouragement these friends find your flaws, and tell you what you need to change about yourself. It always cracks me up, because part of me once to say well..."I am who I am so lay off". However, I don't have the guts. The only way I get the guts is through e-mail, and that always ends badly. It's sad, but I need to find a way to talk to these friends. It's hard because I'm a little afraid of their personalities, some of them have been known to fly off the handle and say horrible things. I don't want to deal with that, so how do you approach someone and tell them. "Hey, you need to lay off, and at least share some sympathy for me once in a while"? It's interesting because I have the flu right now, and one of the friends said "it's all about what you eat, and you need to change the way you eat". Well, I advised her that I HAD been changing what I ate, I eat more fruit and Veggies and less meat. I cut out Soda big time, and I drink tons of water. However, it's not enough for her she thinks there is still something there I'm not doing right. Well, that's on her not me. I know what I'm trying to do, and that's enough for me. Just wish I knew how to tell her where to stick it without hurting her feelings. Anyone have a suggestion?
