so not long ago I had a post about my BFF yelling at my kids, being somewhat embarrassing in public, etc... to avoid being mean, or making her feel bad, I've held my tongue.
well, SHE sparked up a convo about why all the moms on her block can't stand being around her, etc... I told her it was probably because she yells at their kids, and that most women find that disrespectful when they're standing right there, fully capable of disciplining their own children. she tried to give me b.s. excuses of why she does it, etc, but I called her out on everything. I also told her I don't appreciate it either, whether we are friends or not. She complained how she got dirty looks like crazy at the zoo, I explained why.
she accepted what I said and said she really appreciated it and wished I would have told her sooner. I told her she was very unpleasant in confrontations like that, so I had been avoiding it. so we talked that out too. By the end of the convo we were totally fine - maybe even better than before.
we went to the zoo the following day (we generally save our hanging out until after the kids are in bed) and she was FANTASTIC.
