Hello Tatiana!

I am so glad my article helped you find a better way to support your family friend. Having been on both sides of this dynamic, as a support person, as well as in having breakup/reunion cycles that seem to last forever, I have compassion for all parties.

It is painful to watch your loved ones go through this, and it can be equally painful in different ways to try to fit in as a respected and cared for member of a family and community, while struggling with this pattern in your own relationship.

I wish you the best in tolerating your own pain around this, as well as in being a support to your friend!
