Re: Do you know anybody kind of self-sabotaging?
Well. I know someone who isn't fixing his abusive relationship with his literally (and mentally) unstable friend.
His friend is gay, he isn't. His friend apparently did something to him which my friend has never been able to talk about because I think it's mentally scarred him for life. He tells me all the time how insane his friend is (must meet up everyday, talks about his lifetime Showtime stories every day and in repeat, sleeps at 6 in the morning, wakes up at 8. Even his psychiatrist is considering admitting him into a psych ward).
I tell him that he needs to stand up for himself because his crazy friend is the one who is dependent, not him. He tells me that he's scared his friend will commit suicide. And I kinda don't know how to reason with that one. It's gotten quite frustrating because I can't do anything. And what's worse is that my friend's life has been so affected by it: his personal life (try meeting up everyday after work and getting home by 10-11), and his career (must leave by 5 or else he ends up home later than 11).
But I truly believe that his friend is mentally losing it and I'm afraid my friend is going down with him. But I can't fix it because I can't fix something that doesn't want to be fixed.
Yes, upon reading this, it sounds like I made it up in my dark and twisted mind. But no, it's true. I am witnessing a train wreck in the works.
