A good friend never asks about the things you don’t wanna talk about. She doesn’t pester you with questions you don’t want to answer. She respects that you need time and privacy to deal with certain things, and keeps her distance from that subject. She talks about the things that make you feel better instead. There are some really nosy people out there who have a hard time keeping out of others’ businesses, and a true friend never does those things.
A real friend never continues to ask after you’ve said ”I don’t wanna talk about it”. She doesn’t make a big deal of the fact that you don’t wanna talk about it, because she understands that you have a good reason behind it. She says “okay” and naturally moves on to a different subject.
A good friend never brings up stuff that will only bring you down. Not unless it’s necessary, and a good friend knows when it is and when she’s just being disturbingly curious.
