Unhappy HELP! please - August 13th 2010, 03:38 AM

My bestest friend and my sister are in a horrible fight at the moment. I'm being pressured to take sides. I don't know what to do...?

I would just suggest to not take sides at all because then not only will you feel a kind of disconnection from the one you didn't side with but that person will feel you choose because you like the other person better. if you HAVE to get involved; go at the conflict and think it out completely logically(easy for me to do since it's just how I am). Think about what each person said and tell them that you agree and disagree with points from both of them. Make them both see both sides to whatever they're fighting about.

I would stay out of it. Don't take sides and tell them its between you guys, not you.
Choosing sides may cause problems.

Sometimes it's easy to feel like you're the only one in the world who's struggling. Who's frustrated, or unsatisfied, or barely getting by. That feeling is a lie. And if you just hold on, just find the courage to face it all for another day. Someone or something will find you and make it all okay.Because we all need a little help sometimes.

Feel free to message me anytime. I'm always here to help. More importantly I'm always happy to help.<3

I'd suggest withdrawing yourself from the conflict, taking a break from hanging with that friend until they work it out. If they ask you who's side you're on, say you love them both and don't want to take sides.

Don't take sides. This is an argument between the two of them... asking you to get involved is selfish on both of their parts. If either of them asks, say that you love them both and you hope they'll work things out soon. Don't comment on the situation, don't speculate on what one person could have done differently, etc.

Tell them both that you love them both and you're not taking sides. Don't get involved.
