Friday: Celebrating Friends

I am triple dipping!!!! To match my fantabulous (my word), happy go lucky mood I am taking 3 scoops of fun and rolling it into one! So first I'm doing a little bit of Aloha Friday..

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too.

Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is: If you found out that your best friend; or a very close one to you if you don't have a best friend, was talking badly about you to others, what would you do?

I am not a person who likes confrontation so I don't think I would approach this friend like that. Because a friend doesn't talk trash about another friend to others you both know. I speak from experience, I would distance myself from this person and when and if they notice, I'll talk to them in private about it. If they deny it, then that person is no friend of mine. We should build each other up, not tear each other down.


Followed by some Friday Follow.......Follow me, I'll follow you! It's that simple.

And my newest one...New Friend Friday. I saw this one a few weeks ago and hadn't tried it until I saw my cousin doing it today. Thank you girl! Click here to see the rules.



The Girl Creative

To answer the question asked by The Girl Creative and hostess of this meme New Friend Friday. My favorite tv show(s) are Mercy, I love tv medical dramas and my husband loves watching with me which makes Wednesday night so enjoyable. And my newest favorite is Parenthood. It's almost like a soap opera because it focuses on more than one relationship and the cool thing is it's all one family. I can so relate on the crazy, silly dynamics of this family.

I actually ran into this issue earlier in the year... I mentioned it to my best friend. I told her that it makes me leary of telling her things because I'm afraid that she talks about me in the same light. She hasn't done it since!

came here from new friend friday. this is a hard question. i really hate confrontation. i'd like to think i'd say something, but more likely i would not trust that person as a "best" friend anymore.

Ask why person b said she/he said whatever. That usually puts an end to the games.

Have a great Friday!

Ignore them and never talk to them again - lol! That's just me. I'm passive aggressive I guess.

My favorite TV show is Survivor.

P.S. I would confront them....I am definitely not a "turn the other cheek" kinda girl and if they are talking bad about me to others, they sure don't sound like my best friend!

I would confront the person for sure. Always be honest and hopefully all will work out.

I am new follower from Friday Follow and would love a follow back

Happy Friday Follow, Tiffany! Great blog - I love your header! Thanks for visiting me!

Rach said...

I'd ask the friend what had been said and why!

The Social Frog said...

Confront them and if they are not honest about it, let them know in a kind way that if things do not change soon then you will have to walk away from the friendship.

I would go to her and ask her to explain it to me.

Becca said...

I'm here from Aloha Friday and Friday Follow.

I hate having any issues with friends. I haven't ever really heard about a friend talking crap about me, but I would probably just avoid them so they wouldn't have anything to say.

depends...if she were my one-of-a-kind-just-like-my-sister best friend, I might chalk it up to her mood that day, or "venting" out of frustration (after all, I have probably said worse about her...JUST KIDDING...)if it were someone else, I'm not sure...depends on what she said...who she said it to...

Whew, it's Sunday but still making the rounds for Friday! I hope you have had a fantastic weekend.

For your question, I would have to ask what was going on. I would say, did I offend you in some way, etc.? So and so person mentioned you didn't seem too happy with me.. or something like that!
