So really needing some advice here, I feel I’m bombing the supportive role. During life you get to navigate some hardcore rough situations. How can I be more supportive than just listening to a friend who has an alcoholic in the family? We are both only children who had been put in charge of parental happiness (we have overcome that), we are both a shoulder alot of emotional debt in relationships, but unfortunately she was working for the other party. Its been a constant stream of up and down for her and I feel as if Im a broken record w “Im sorry” sigh “this is repeating history”
I totally get counseling now when you deal with addicts and they tell you expect setbacks
But how do you positively cope w another person who won’t keep help going?
