I have a new friend who is trying to get her life in order after years of mental abuse. While I realize she is using all the positive affirmations people have been giving her to boost her ego, ie, 'they say how smart she is, how beautiful she is, how nice her hair and teeth are', when she likened herself to Jesus Christ, I draw the line.
how can I get her out of this cycle to see herself as a strong person without having the majority of our conversations about how other people see her as so wonderful? I do not want to set her back, but this behavior is beginning to make me question if what she wants in me is a friend or just someone to boast to.
any insight would be so appreciated.
