Wish you Well

I have a friend. She is troubled and struggling right now. She reminds me of myself a few years ago. Her life is unfortunately mirroring my own.

I am willing to do all I can for her, with what I can offer, but I am beginning to feel as though she just comes to me when she needs something now… On the other hand, I know how it feels to be in her position and have nobody to turn to. Even her own parents have let her down in her time of need.

I am really struggling right now, with the need to help and support her, but also to empower her to make her situation better… But I don’t want her to think she can depend on me for cash.

It’s been 24 hours and I still haven’t heard back from her. Now I am worried, I am concerned that I’ve given her money, and she’s used it for alcohol or drugs.

My heart is hurting, I feel let down.

  1. Perhaps you can offer support without physically providing money…. I’m always willing to help someone out (meals, fuel in a tank, a place to sleep, emotionally) but I will not provide actual money….

    1. I know that, I have offered her a place to stay, with my family and I, but she lives miles away and I was bank transfering money to her. I can’t do it anymore, but I feel so bad x

  2. I’m sorry. Relationships are complicated.
    You did what you thought was helpful. What she chooses to do with your help is her burden to carry.
    You obviously have a good heart. Hug.
