I admire this woman and have wanted to be friends with her for years. She has let me in a little but has quickly put up walls against me. I recently found out that she has done this to just about everybody at church.
Also, this woman has some type of mental illness. She has depression, panic, and she cuts herself. (this is all I know) I guess this was brought on as a child when she was molested by a family member. I do not know the who, why, when etc of this. She has never shared that with me.
The sad part about this is, she has a husband and 5 year old son. I really worry about them, especially the little boy.
In my opinion, and other whom I have spoken to, it seems like she likes and enjoys all of this. She likes playing the part of a martyr. She has been in therapy for years and doesn't seem to be getting better. She seems to be getting worse.
So, here are some of my thoughts and why I feel confused. As a follower of Christ, I am taught to love others, bear one another's burdens, and have charity. There is also the story of the Good Samaritan and in Matthew we are told that what we do unto others, we do unto Christ.
My question is, what am I suppose to do? Why does all of this bother me so? Why do I care? I am having a hard time just standing by and not do anything. I can't stand to see her purposely destroy herself and her family. But, on the other hand. is it really my concern?
What to do?
