I love my guy friends more than my girl friends, any given day. My guy best friend was in an abusive relationship. We all saw how his girlfriend would abuse him in public and in private. The love turned to frustration and then to fear and my friend snapped contacts with all of us. It took me months of talking and explaining and counselling to make him understand that he needs to take a stand for himself. And even after he walked out, it took me weeks of babysitting him to make sure he got back to being the person he always was. And now that has made me a certified bitch. Not just his ex girlfriend, but even our friends think I intervened too much in his private space and I am the reason behind their ‘unhappiness’. Is it really so?
