Is it choosing sides when I talk to the "enemy" and am still friends with them and the other friend doesn't seem to want anything to do with me or anybody other than her "significant" other? Is it choosing sides when I don't want anything to do with this situation because the whole situation is bullshit? Is it choosing sides if I want to be able to keep both friends, but one friend is controlled by a jackass that doesn't want her to have anything to do with me?
I'm not choosing sides, the side is being chosen for me.... I have no choice at all.
It's truly heartbreaking to try to help out a friend in need who just doesn't seem to want to be helped. And even more-so to be there for them and to hear them say that they have nothing or nobody at all. Like you try and try and try with all you've got and you are just... not good enough. I'm not good with the advice part of helping a friend in need anyway... so I already feel useless.
I suppose I shouldn't even try... from now on when I try to help out a friend it'll be half-assed. It's not worth putting so much heart into it, sometimes....
Kind of sucks when you are trying your hardest to help out a friend in need who doesn't even seem to know you're there... I mean they explain everything that is going on and when you tell them that they aren't alone and say "Well who do I have?"... I mean really... ouch.
I'm trying to pull one of my really good friends out of a dark place right now and I'm failing... and if I can't get him above this... I'm going to feel like a shit and a half.
I'm about in tears because I am so useless with this and I just don't want to lose him in any way... at all.
I'm scared out of my wits for this guy... my buddy is slipping away from me and I don't know what to do...
