It has been a long time since I've struggled with this, but for some reason, an old memory popped back up into my head and it inspired me to ask this question. So, hypothetical: you just get into a new relationship, and right from the get go, your best friend seems to absolutely hate your boyfriend/girlfriend for no other reason than he/she is giving you attention and they are afraid that you're going to forget about them. If you ever make plans to do anything with this boyfriend/girlfriend, your best friend immediately gets moody and irritated. They act dismissive or even blatantly rude if you ever bring up your lover, and even go as far as to bash your lover in front of you, even if they have NEVER done wrong to them.
How would you handle a friend who acted like this?

I would tell my friend that I have a simple rule: if I am ever in a situation where someone is trying to force me to choose between them and another person, I will always choose the other person. If I submit to the will of another person, I am giving up control of my life, and that is something that I will never do. . . and it is something that a good friend would never cause to happen.0
