What do you think?

Two long time friends and neighbors. The kids get older. Life changes. One is introspective, wants something new in life, tired of same old same old, the world is her oyster. She is emotionally expressive. One is passive, very busy, likes to have alot of friends, likes things to stay the same, stays close to home. First friend gets impatient with other friend one day and speaks loudly and angrily. Second friend is appalled and feels like a victim, isn't sure if she wants to risk being the object of an outburst again. Can they stay friends?

  • Yes they most certainly can. I have that same situation going on here right now. No we are not as close as we use to be, but we have learned to still love one another even though we are so different. It can be done, ,y friend and I just needed to talk about it and set some boundaries and try to be understanding when we hit a wall and tell one another when they hurt us. Hope that make sense.. good luck

  • Yes. They must care about one another enough to fight. You don't fight with complete strangers because you don't care what they think.

  • If this isn't a regular thing, then I'd think so. Friend #2 should talk to friend #1 and explain how it felt to be talked to like that. If they are truly friends, then I'd hope the friendship could get past this bump, maybe even grow stronger. But friend #2 will definitely need to speak up and express how she felt.
