I agree with Artsydesign. The same problem has been occurring with me lately until I lost my patience and told her where she could take her arguments. There's only so much of that kind of stuff we can take, which is usually far, far, more than we should have to. Life is too short.
I'd say it is time to start talking on the phone a lot less.
A good long time friend is someone you should be able to talk to about your feelings<br />
Set up a good time to talk to your friend. No distractions. Make all your statements start with the word "I". "I am feeling...." "I would like it if....." "I am bothered by...." Do not start a sentence with "You are...." "You should know...." "You aren't...." Those are attacks. <br />
Remember that you can't make someone else change, but you can share your feelings. <br />
im having the same problem with my best friend but she told me she only wants to talk when we got something "interesting" to talk about.
hi gypsy my friend;) same problem huh?;) I think considering the stress and trouble you have been patient enough, step back, and dont allow this burden to overwhelm you, its getting to that point and mabye then she will value your friendship more;) *hugs* love you, xox
The next time she calls instead of answering with hello...answer by saying " what's yoooour problem???"<br />
Just kidding...try to get along...if she still wants to argue then stop answering when she calls and she will start to get the message. dc
