My friend doesn’t think anything I have to say is important. She will ask me how my day was and before I can say anything she starts talking about what happened to her. She thinks everything she has to say is so important. What can I do?
You can try talking to your friend about this. She may not be aware of what she’s doing or how it affects you. But be prepared. The problem may be deeper than you think. Depending on how severely impaired she is, she may or may not be willing (or able) to change her behavior.
I hope you two can work this out, but if she doesn’t see a problem, you may have to accept the reality that she can never be the kind of friend you would like her to be, unless she seeks help. Letting go of a friend can be difficult if you consider her “close,” but how close can you two be if she is not interested in what you have to say?
