When it comes to our friends, we will always be on their side – no matter what. And when our friend’s partner does not treat them in the way they deserve, we should let our friends know.
It doesn’t mean that I expect my friend to break up with the guy because of a comment that I made about his behavior, but it’s the duty of a good friend to support our friend. But if you really think that your friend is in a toxic relationship, then things can get a little more complicated than just making a comment in passing.
No matter how loving and caring you may be though, they are likely to shut you down and get defensive. If you think that your friend is being abused, they may be in serious denial and may also fear for their safety. You should never try to force anything out of them, just make it clear that you care for them and that your door is always open if they need anything.
Choose your words carefully, and speak from your heart.
