I wish them the best

Last night I wrote about being a mediator between two friends. They are dating and one friend was becoming distant to their significant other because they are not liking how their SO is acting. Basically the SO is...gosh I don't even know how to explain it. I have known this person for like 2 years so I have been able to understand them a bit more. But they have a temper and an ego. they do not like suggestions, they don't really let other people talk. It really isn't their fault, they never had friends as a kid, so social interaction is awkward for them. And that is where I come in. I know a little bit about people like this, I know a bit of a psychology, so I am able to talk to people and make sure they make their own choices instead of me telling them what to do. And they actually listened to me, I straight up told them they will lose their SO if they do not change. that they should listen more, they should let others talk more, do not jump to conclusions and all that. And they agree and I was so happy. There is no telling that they will actually keep up with what they said, but I hope they do. I mean...they normally listen to me and keep up with what I suggest. I don't know why, but perhaps it is because I don't accuse them of anything, I just flat out say I understand and explain why things happen. I just hope for the best for these two and if things do not work out, well, neither of them can get mad at me since this was a step all on their own.

Well I'm not so sure that it's a bad thing to not take suggestions other people are usually looking out for themselves. So you need to take care of yourself and do what makes you happy ,seen too many people change themselves for other people.

Well it is fine to not take suggestions, but if you get angry about when suggestions are given, that is bad. That is what I meant, whoopies. Of course, I always take care of myself, but I love taking care of other people as well. I wouldn't be taking care of myself if I didn't take care of other people. It really effects me when I see friends that are sad.
