Help a friend.

I was on my Facebook page & I update my status to this: Say what you want, do as you please, but im not the type of girl whos gonna break down and crash because of one thing you say to me; im strong, im independent, i hold my own head up! & I come across to see my good friend having an awful day on her birthday today. I text her & she was giving me all this message saying her boyfriend insult her being too skinny & she need to dress more often & she need to eat more. He just literally keep putting her down. And guess what? He's out hanging out with his babymomma. BABYMOMMA! wtf! seriously! I be mad.

How would you react? Would you keep taking this over and over?

  • I wouldn't take it, but people have things happen to them because they allow it. In this situation your friend is allowing herself to be treated this way.

  • No matter what you say to her, she will have to reach her own limit & leave the jerk when she's ready. Let her know you are there for her now & when she finally dumps the scumbag! Then ask her what advice she would give you if the situation were reversed? Hopefully it will give her something to think about.

  • It isn't up to her BF to decide what she weighs, eats or dresses. It's her body and she can do what she wants. She doesn't need that, tell her she needs to find someone that is right for her and doesn't judge her. She's needs someone who can accept the way she is.
