Stuck in the Middle

Well it has begun, the breakup I spoke of earlier has begun to turn nasty. Who to choose, who to believe and why do I have to?

I believe strongly that the one who demands you choose sides looses the right to be my friend. All of my friends know this and yet it seems that I am dragged ever deeper into a pit of he said, she said and downright lies. There is no middle ground and I have to wonder if the best way to deal with it all is to just walk away.

It sure would make my life easier, except they have both stood by me when I needed a friend. They both in their separate ways held my hands while I cried and struggled. They both offered me their unconditional support. and now.. they both want mine.

I don't know maybe walking away would be easier, but it is more honest?


  1. When they call, just say "I love you both and don't want to be in the middle". Then ask about the weather or something other than the situation. Tough situation. Good luck.

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  2. If it's for your sanity, yes, walk away -- but tell them both WHY you are walking away.

    Otherwise, can you just listen and be there, and limit your involvement to that?

    Good luck; I know how hard this is.
