When should you grin and bear it and say sorry to someone that you have a history with of many years of friendship, but that you were the one that was right and they were not, and they yelled that you were the reason that the friendship was in danger of being lost. When do you say your sorry to save something and when do you put your foot down and say they are wrong and need to fix it or not, but either way they needed to say sorry. Is it okay to say sorry when you don't mean it?

The thing is there was no reason for it and it was one-sided and made no sense! AND the person tried to say sorry whatever you thought I said I will be careful and think about what how it will come across. Truth is they still don't know what happen
Cont. from below: the man seems to have his own problems; if he was a true friend he'd listen and try to work it out. Everyone deserves a second chance. Help her realize she deserves good people in her life. Her problems stem from her childhood.
I told her to step back and tell the truth and be rational when she said what she has to but not to apologize because whatever it was it wasn't her fault. I told her that he needs to see what his behvaior changes have done and he will get help
I agree with you, I think if you backdpwn in this scenario, and if its that clear that you are right and he is wrong he knows it too, that its saying he can get away with the behavior again. If they don't accept their wrong they won't apologzie
I think that could be possible because of change in dynamics, do you think its possible that after years of friendship that a change like that could be possible without her being aware of it?
It is funny you mention the lol...she said that she forgot to put lol
My dearest friend, I read what you've written very carefully and I have only this to say: when someone truly cares about someone else he/she is forgiving and goes on. She should get professional psychological help in addition to med.
She was on meds and went off for side effect, getting new ones soon. I see a therapist myself, I told her it might help her so she doesn't follow a pattern and a cycle of her own and she has to think o hersel too. I told her to let him figure it ou
ALL MY BEST TO HER AND GOOD LUCK TO YOU HERE!
