Friends care for us and would never intentionally hurt us.Do we set any friendship boundaries.Find out below
I have often heard people say that friends should have boundaries.But if they are truly your friends,aren"t they supposed to say exactly what they feel without you taking it to heart.Would you rather she had a false sense of security??
If s/he is your friend,s/he only has your best interests at heart .S/he will tell you if s/he thinks you are being hurt.If s/he is wrong that is okay at least you know there is somebody looking out for you.Often people run away from the truth.Even when we realise that ther might be sometruth to what your friend is saying,somtimes we do not want to hear it.
I for one would expect my friend to tell me if she has any views as to something that is going on in my other relationships.
The problem is often we assume that if we tell our friends the truth,we will be in their bad books.But as a friend I would rather have you tell me than hear it from someone else.
In as much as I would expect my friend to tell me or simply look out for me,every relationship should come with boundaries.
Most often people always confuse the whole idea of telling you with their motive.Does your friend have to have a motive for telling you that your partner is cheating on you?
Is the reason she is telling you someone might be talking behind your back,she does not like the person.S/he cares about you and doesnot want to see you getting hurt.So is it wrong for her to want to tell you?
Just because she is telling you does not mean that she wants you two to break up.She only wants the two of you to solve your problems.
It hurts to know that there are some things that happened in your life which could have been better handled if your friends had been truthful.
