Buddy Takes Offense at Never Ever Being Inquired About Her Past
by Abigail Van Buren
DEAR ABBY: half a year ago, i acquired right straight back in contact with a youth buddy whom married at 17 and relocated away. She’s got plenty of family members drama, most of it brought on by her alcoholism (which she claims is just a total outcome of PTSD).
Recently, she said i’ve hurt her and I also’m a friend that is terrible since we have reconnected, We have never ever once asked her about her past and also the ordeals she is been through. Abby, she discusses by by herself constantly. We never ever thought it absolutely was essential to ask her concerning the past because she never shuts up about any of it. We have attempted to be a beneficial listener, but I don’t think she has made the best life alternatives, and I also do not desire to confront her with my viewpoints as to how she’s all messed up her life.
