Being caught in the middle of a fuss between two friends, family members or just acquaintances can be one of the most uncomfortable experiences I know. Its hard sometimes because the situation may be a delicate one where both persons feel really hurt and are looking to you for support. I believe there are times when the bare truth can be spoken at the wrong time. Someone has to remain rational and level headed so as not to make things worst. Have you ever been caught in the middle of such a delicate situation? What did you do? Did it turn out ok afterall or did things get ugly?

When you feel caught in the middle between family or friends the best thing to do is not choose sides. No matter what you say you will seem to be taking one side over the other so the best thing to do is either listen and not say much or to tell both parties you are not comfortable in the middle and you would like to be left out of the conflict and encourage them to resolve their issues.

That sounds like the sensible thing to do.
