It was a really hard lesson to learn, but no one takes advice. Even if they seem like they listen a little bit. Nada.
But that's okay. Everyone has a life path to follow, and important lessons most often need to be paid for. Knowledge sticks a little better if you earn it. For whatever reason things that are just handed to us seem worthless, and god knows advice comes damn cheap.
So what do you do when your friend is in an abusive relationship? How many times do you support them when they cry on your shoulder, only to have them run back into the arms of their abuser? Only a week ago they were nursing their wounds, and now they are looking for any glimpse of hope to forgive. I'd say forget, but that doesn't seem to be a problem at all.
I don't know what to do. We all want to protect the ones we care about. When you see a friend in pain don't you feel that pain as well?
Do any of you have experience with this kind of thing? How do you forgive your friend for staying?
Like I said, I already learned people don't listen. But how can I learn to stay and have to watch?
