What Should You Do When A Friend Lets You Down?

Dear Laura,
What should you do when a friend lets you down and doesn’t get it when you try to tell them?

Dear Anon.,

We’ve all been there and it definitely hurts. If they don’t want to listen, aren’t willing to take it in, don’t accept responsibility or don’t want to ‘get it’…then you move on. You gather up your dignity and your valued self, and you move forward in another direction elsewhere. Much as we’d like to, we just can’t make other people grow.
