Help Please

December 4, 2017 11:49am CST
I have a friend and her family uses her for money constantly. Her step dad drinks everyday he does not work, and he demands a bottle of whiskey everyday and call her everyday when he is the bar for her to pick him up which she does. Her brothers are drug addicts who ask her everyday for money and she gives. She cant afford to get her own place because her money goes to everyone else and not her needs. How do i tell her that her family is using her without me seeming forward. Please advice me. Thanks

Sometimes you got to be blunt and tell it like it is. She knows what is going on and only she can stop it from happening. She is their enabler.

@Laurel that is so true. She has been planning to get her place for years but keeps giving her family money, so she can't afford to move out at the moment.

Tell her to get disappear for sometime , just don't respond to her family . make her family realize that they are nothing without her support and what she is going through because of them. i know it is not that easy to do but , sometimes our decisions help us to change things . nobody can help her unless she don't take a step to change her life. Hope she get out of this problem as soon as possible.
