Many women get married and fortunately lead happy marriages which now a days is rare since the whole “marriage constitution,” if you will has been jaded? Married women remain friends with their single friends which often are still struggling finding the right guy or having relationship issues/problems.
Since this is the case there’s many happily women out there that almost feel ashamed that they’re in a state of bliss in their marriage while their friends continue to struggle so they resort to lying about how happy they are and even go as far as fabricating stories to down play their wonderful husbands. Should they be ashamed of being happily married? Of course not! Whether or not if their friends are struggling with relationships issues.
In fact, the fact that you’ve made it so far and are happy, might provide you with better/more constructive advice and problem solving solutions for your distraught friends. If you’ve been making up problems about your relationship you should stop. Hubby probably doesn’t even care. But as a friend you should just be happy for you and if they’re truly your friends, they’ll be happy for you and celebrate and cheer for your happiness.
After all true friends are there for each other through thick and thin. Another thing is you shouldn’t try to only relate to your friends by the relationships you lead. I’m sure there’s other things that you have in common and can relate to that you can speak of. It doesn’t all have to revolve around relationships.
At the end of the day all people that have landed in a happy marriage or satisfying relationship had to go through some hoops to get there. Hardly ever do these treasures just land on your lap. Rejoice on your happiness no matter what. You don’t have to be in a miserable relationship to be able to help a friend that’s in distress.
The truth of the matter is that happiness is contagious and it rubs off and if your friend in disarray doesn’t see you falling off the seams she might be able to even crack a smile. Make a joke, it doesn’t always have to be so serious, have some drinks, lighten up the mood. If your friend resents you for being happy then she’s not truly being a friend and might be experiencing some feelings envy. Caution with those…Envy can draw friends to do unthinkable things. But if all is as should, your friends should be happy for you as you work out solutions and advice to help their relationship problems.
