Q: hey question for you! i have an old friend who, since she got her first real job (in PR), has become really materialistic and into how she looks at all times. whenever we go out, she comments on how every guy is staring at her, but I don't see this. she has started treating me differently, like suggesting I straighten my hair et al and implying that i'm not as fashionable/hot/etc. I love her dearly, but it's starting to get disrespectful, slightly delusional, and weird. advice?
If I’ve learned anything from (St.) Camille Grammer, it’s that sometimes you have to come out of your husband’s shadow-TO SHINE. And in your case-you need to come out of your friend’s shadow-TO SHINE. So my best advice is: drop that hateful, delusional, materialistic narcissist and let your star shine bright without the shade of hateration tucked under the guise of friendship. I have so been there, and I have so done that, and I have so cut those types of “friends” out of my life, because you don’t live with cancer-you cut it out. When in doubt, be like Camille.
