Maha Monday Column + Video: When Friends’ True Colours Are Shady

At Chai Latte Diaries, I am asked for advice on an unwelcome and insecure-male-driven ‘love triangle’ as well as how to react to when our good intentions are maligned: This is a woman who is willing to marry a man who created a false liability against the very woman who brought them together; against a woman who is supposed to be one of her good friends and she believed it. I don’t care that she said she didn’t — because if she truly didn’t, she would not be distancing herself from you now.

I can’t say it enough — this HURTS. Losing a potential spouse is one thing, but losing a who-you-thought was a trusted long-term friend is a whole other can of worms and it cuts at a different, deeper level. I understand that it hurts like hell because your intention was to do good and suddenly you’re facing that horrible saying: “no good deed goes unpunished.”
