My sensitive friend can't handle the truth. What should I do?
Dear Friend in Need,
Say, “I really care about our friendship so I’m going to tell you five things I like about you and one thing I don’t.” Then tell her five great compliments (she’s funny and loyal and knows the words to all the Beatles songs…) and add that you wish she wouldn’t give you such a hard time when you don’t want to make a plan. Say, “For instance, when I was too tired for that sleepover, that was about me, not you, and it would have been easier if you hadn’t take things so personally.” I hope she can develop more confidence soon because when one friend is insecure and moody, it can be hard on the other.
