Do You Take Sides?

What do you do when you are in the middle of two friends bickering? Do you take sides when your siblings argue? Whose side do you take or do you even take sides? Just wondering. This afternoon a friend called me and she said that it seems like there is a conflict with her and another friend at work. I do not want to be biased but I actually understad her sentiments.

It can be very difficult to stay neutral when two friends are at odds. I wish you well in this case.

I just listen and let them talk. I am not about to take sides at all.

That is right. I responded to a comment saying the same meaning differently.

I try my best not to take sides but I weigh in who's really right.

@nottoooldtowrite It's better to stay in between and just try to settle things.

Sometimes, it is better to keep your mouth shut. Don't let her enemy become yours. Just let her vent.

True. And sometimes that is all what one needs, someone who would listen.

No, I'll let them settle their issues on their own. I have my own issues, taking sides will just add to it.
