Now, instead of choosing sides, (although I will admit I do agree with one more than other) I realized that Cara was lashing out because she was severely unhappy. Her life was at a standstill while everyone, myself included, was out chasing their dreams.
She confessed that she felt like everyone was moving on and forgetting about her. I understood where she was coming from but told her that no matter how many things change, (jobs, boyfriends etc) we would always be there for one another. But if she kept taking out her frustrations on everyone, her fear of being alone may turn into her reality.
The main thing to remember is when a friend all of a sudden starts lashing out at you instead of fighting back ask her what’s wrong. Chances are she needs your friendship more than ever!
