When people face a personal problem or dilemma, they tend to talk to close friends about it. What they actually need is someone who can listen to all their grunts and complaints, someone whom they can release their anger, stress, and someone who can help them getting their burden off their back. They don’t need someone who criticise, question, or even provoke their action/belief. And when sometimes when that friend does so, they tend to get even angrier or more stressful. Even sometimes whatever that friend suggest might be the solution to the problem, just because they do not like it, they will tend to ignore it. This is life, people talking about their problem only to find friends who can stand by their side, who can agree with them. They don’t need people who can point out their mistake/wrong-doings.
I totally agree with that. When I have problems, I only need people who can do sweet-talk to me. I don’t need people who scold me or blame me, eventhough clearly the root of the problem is my fault. But sometimes, no matter how painful the truth / reality of life is, eventually we still need to handle and get on with it, like it or not.
