Obviously my friends come to me for advice and a shoulder to cry on, and I’m more than happy to oblige — that's what friends are for! Most of the time it’s more about being a good listener than doling out my opinion, but I do always try to offer my two cents, especially when it seems like there’s a viable solution to the problem.
It’s not that I expect my friends to always take my words to heart, but I must say, it’s frustrating when they continue to complain about the same thing every time I see them but refuse to even try to do things differently. Of course as friends, we're supposed to be there to listen, especially when the going gets tough, but sometimes it feels like it doesn't make a difference at all — like I'm talking to the wall. I have a feeling I'm not alone on this one so ladies, do tell, do you have friends that won’t stop complaining, but won’t change either? If so, how do you deal with it?
