Subtle Differences... (Connie J...)

Do you have a friend that has changed?


Do they seem to have gotten so caught up in a relationship, married or not, and you've noticed subtle changes?


It seems their significant other has "taken over their life", and they've changed, and you just have a "feeling" something is amiss?


You kind of feel like they  are possibly too caught up in it, but then you question yourself. You think you're just being petty, or cynical because they're not spending time with you.


You want to be helpful, but you just sit back and wait. You don't want to add to their problem (if there really is one). If you feel they're being controlled or manipulated, you don't want to add to the mix.


There is the possibility that you could be wrong, and it's real love, and your "feelings" will end up being incorrect; you hope for that.


Then, you find out you weren't. Your friend confides in you the truth. Their former suitor is basically stalking them, and won't "listen" to them, when they ask them to leave them alone.


Just do what you can to support them in their efforts. They have to do the work, but be there to encourage them to keep going, that THEY ARE WORTH THE FIGHT. They do NOT DESERVE to be controlled and manipulated by ANYONE!!!


Have a good day, and be safe... #ENDtheSILENCEofVIOLENCE
