One of life’s greatest gifts is having a best friend. But you no doubt also know how painful it can be when your best friend is mad at you.Many a friend has spent sleepless nights due to a broken relationship with a best friend.
Sometimes it’s difficult to tell exactly what went wrong – if it’s something hurtful you did without realizing it, or if it’s just a misunderstanding.
Maybe someone told a lie about you to try and drive a wedge between the two of you.
If your friend doesn’t want to talk about what is making him/her so mad, you may have to just give it time.
Sometimes the only way to resolve a problem is by letting time pass.
David said, Sometimes your friend has completely unrealistic expectations.
You can either decide to find a middle ground, or walk away.
I suggest you start by repeating back to your friend what you heard him/her say.
For instance, “Am I right you’re angry that I was unkind to you? ” This gives you both the opportunity to make sure each of you heard what the other said.
The more you can feel what your friend is feeling, the better chance you’ll have of fixing your conflict. The worst thing you can do is get defensive when resolving a conflict with your best friend. When you hear your friend telling you what he/she thinks you did wrong, it’s natural to immediately feel like you want to defend yourself. Remember, there will be time enough for you to express how you feel as well. This is not a sign of agreeing, it is just a sign of listening!
