I have been bestfriends with a gilr since we were in Jr. High. I hate to ruin a 15 year friendship but I can barely stand to talk to her recently. She knows because of the economy we are having $$ issues. On a daily basis she rubs it in my face how much $$ her hubby brought home. And how much $$ her mom has to take her on vacation. She consantly talks about how her first grade daughter is reading at a 6th grade level and the school is talking about starting special classes for her! Her kids are brats and I cant stand to be around them. Her daughter constantly lies, at church functons she is always in trouble. The last church function she was telling everyone how much she hates her parents and yes she is in first grade. I had other chaperones asking me if she was always like that and how I can stand to be around her. I just dont know how to handle this situation with out ruining a 15 year long friendship.Answer Question

I would avoid her like the plague. Until she got the picture I did not want to be her friend.

The one thing I have noticed about people who brag about their great lives is that they are jealous of something. Maybe she is jealous that your kids behave or that you and your SO are really close. Maybe she is jealous because you are happy in the situation that you are in. It is amazing when people have everything they want and they are still not happy. You might want to try and talk about her personal life when you two have some time alone. If she keeps trying to make you feel bad then you need to back away from her, but let her know that you are there with an ear. I hope, for your skae, she will learn to treat you with respect. Good luck.
