Some people seem to have it all and it still isn’t enough. My friend of sixteen years is married, has children, a wealthy husband, and she practically lives in a mansion in Alpharetta, Georgia. I’m telling you all of this to say I am tired of hearing her complain about her life! I’m a single mother who works two jobs just to make ends meet for my son and I and she feels her life is so hard. She doesn’t have to work or struggle so I’m not sure why she is always blowing up my phone to vent. I have my own issues and none of them are a petty as hers. I don’t want to cut her off, but I don’t want to keep hearing her bullshit either. What should I do?
***Anti-Housewife, I can see your frustration based on your perspective, and it reminds of a sermon by my cousin’s father. He stated to never be jealous or judgmental of the rich woman living in the big house on the hill because you never know what she has endured/is enduring to have those fine things. Think about it. You’ve heard the stories of well to do housewives trapped in loveless marriages, having troubled children, or so bored they have to cause mischief for others. Clearly, your friend sees you as someone strong she can talk to–a lifeline to sanity, reason, and peace of mind. Part of being a good friend is having a listening ear. If you’re tired, suggest she get professional help or find some outlet for her stress. Hope that helps!
