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.
